Parking enforcement

Parking Charge Notices (PCN) of £60 may be issued to vehicles parked in contravention of the Parking Regulations. Repeated or serious offences may result in the removal of parking privileges and/or University disciplinary procedures. For more information on car parking enforcement please refer to the Car Parking Policy.

Appeals against Parking Charge Notices should be made directly to the contracted enforcement company using the details on the PCN. If your appeal to them is rejected, you can appeal to the POPLA independent appeals service.

Advice on parking enforcement in Scotland, including how to appeal, is available from Citizens Advice.

Parking policy
