Paying parking fines
Our online payment system for parking fines is currently down. We're working with our supplier to reinstate this service as soon as possible and apologise for any inconvenience caused.
You can still pay by telephone or post; details are below.
Pay a parking fine by telephone
Credit / debit payments only. Please call our automated payment line on 0845 805 5593 (24 hour service).
Please have your card details and penalty charge notice number ready.
Pay a parking fine by post
Send a cheque / postal order made payable to Central Bedfordshire Council with the Penalty Charge Notice - PCN number and your name and address on the reverse to Central Bedfordshire Council, PO Box 597, Northampton NN4 7XN.
Our Parking Attendants (Civil Enforcement Officers) issue penalty charge notices to vehicle owners who are parked where they should not be.
They carry mobile computers and still cameras so that it can be checked that a parking fine was issued correctly.
They do not have targets and do not receive bonuses based on the number of fines issued.
