On-Street Parking Issues
Leicestershire County Council is the Authority responsible for the control and regulation of all On-Street Parking issues. (For example double yellow lines, no waiting restrictions etc). Blaby District Council has no responsibility for this. Any complaints/concerns regarding these matters should be directed to Leicestershire County Council by calling 0116 305 0001.
Blaby District Council has 2 Civil Enforcement Officers (CEO’s) who are employed by Harborough District Council as part of a partnership which includes Blaby, Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council, Harborough District Council, Oadby and Wigston Borough Council and Melton Borough Council. They patrol and can issue Parking Contravention Notices (PCN’s) for offences in Blaby car parks. They also enforce On-Street offences within the Blaby District on behalf of Leicestershire County Council
(See above for “On Street Parking Issues”).
All PCN complaints, appeals and payments are dealt with by the Notice Processing Unit (NPU) based at County Hall, Glenfield, Leicester. All queries about being issued a PCN should be directed to the NPU by following The Appeals Procedure which can be found in the reverse of the PCN. It is not the responsibility of Blaby District Council to deal with this. Further information can be found on the parking matters website or using the following contact details:
