If a Penalty Charge Notice remains unpaid, a warrant of control may be issued in the vehicle keeper's name under the authority of the Traffic Enforcement Centre at Northampton County Court.

This warrant will be passed to the Council's enforcement agents, Equita Limited. They will contact the vehicle keeper to request payment. If payment is still not made they may instruct a certified enforcement agent to find another way to secure payment.

If you have a query about a Penalty Charge Notice which has been passed to the Council's enforcement agents please contact them directly and they can advise you further. Their contact details are below.

The disc parking scheme in operation throughout Cumbria gives drivers the opportunity to locate a short-stay parking space close to shops and local facilities, while encouraging the rapid turnover of available parking spaces.

When parking in a disc zone the motorist should indicate their time of arrival and clearly display this on the vehicle dashboard. Once the parking time has expired the vehicle must be moved from the zone for at least the time period specified by the sign before it returns.

Disc clocks can be obtained free of charge from the following locations. If you stock disc clocks and would like to be added to the list below please contact Parking Services by telephone 0300 3032992 or e-mail parking@cumbria.gov.uk.
