PRICE HIKE: Hillingdon Council launches consultation on parking penalty changes

 Published on: 23rd May 2023   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Hillingdon Council is proposing to change the borough’s parking fine charges from Band B to Band A.

In recent years, Hillingdon Council has seen a 29 per cent increase in the number of tickets issued for parking contraventions, in comparison to the London average increase of 21 per cent.

Hillingdon Council has used Band B fines over the last 10 years, but is considering changing to the more expensive Band A to discourage incompliance. Band A is used by 25 of the 32 London councils.

Currently, those receiving a higher parking fine for more serious contraventions are charged £110, or a reduced charge of £55 if paid within 14 days. A lower rate fine is charged at £60, reduced to £30 if paid within 14 days.

If the council moves into Band A, this would change to £130 for higher fines and £80 for lower fines, both of which are reduced by 50 per cent if paid within 14 days.

Councillor Eddie Lavery, Hillingdon Council’s cabinet member for residents’ services, said: “We want to ensure and maintain a high level of compliance with parking restrictions, reduce congestion and keep traffic flowing, and I encourage residents to have their say in this survey.”
