Council consults on decriminalised parking enforcement

16th September 2016

The Highland Council is seeking public opinion on Draft Traffic Regulation Orders for the introduction of Decriminalised Parking Enforcement (DPE) in the Highlands.

The Draft Traffic Regulation Orders are available now on the council's website at www.highland.gov.uk/parking
www.highland.gov.uk/parking

The public have until 30 September 2016 to submit any objections in writing to The Legal Manager, The Highland Council, Glenurquhart Road, Inverness IV3 5NX

Decriminalised Parking Enforcement will allow responsibility for enforcing parking and waiting and loading regulations to be transferred from Police Scotland to The Highland Council. The Council will also receive powers to uplift vehicles.

Money raised through the issue of Penalty Charge Notices will only be spent on maintaining the service. Any surplus is controlled under statute and can only be used for traffic related projects.

Police Scotland will still be responsible for reportable traffic offences on all roads, such as dangerous parking or obstruction.
