Council to take over parking enforcement on 31 January.
Powers to enforce illegal on street parking in the borough will transfer from West Mercia Police to Telford & Wrekin Council at the end of the month (31 January). From that date, the Council’s team of Neighbourhood Enforcement Officers will be able to issue Penalty Charge Notices for parking contraventions.
Parents and staff may have already seen the officers on patrol as they issue warning notices during the educational phase that precedes the adoption of the enforcement powers.
The officers’ roles will extend way beyond the issuing of “parking tickets”; they will also be able to deal with environmentals crime such as dog-fouling, littering and fly-tipping.
There is further information on parking enforcement and on how to pay or appeal a fine (if you are unfortunate enough to receive such a notice) via www.telford.gov.uk/parking
