New rules on Council Parking fines

It is a myth that Council’s have to offer a 2 minute grace for overstaying in Council-owned car park – at present, the Council do not have to offer any grace period at all.

However, drivers in England will get 10 minutes’ grace before being fined if they stay too long in council-owned car parking spaces, the government has announced.

It is one of several changes, expected to take effect later this month, which include new restrictions on the use of CCTV cars issuing automatic fines.

More information will be posted once the new rules come into place.
