Parking tickets/parking fines are known as Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs).

Please ensure you pay or challenge with the correct authority.

Car park PCNs

Warwick DC PCN

Warwick District Council issues Penalty Charge Notices for car parks only. If the heading on your PCN looks like this use the links below. These PCNs have a prefix of WQ.

If you have been issued a PCN in one of our car parks please do not ignore it. Upon receipt of a PCN, there are 2 options available – pay or challenge.

Charges and discount

The Penalty Charge Notice for a more serious contravention is £70. For a less serious contravention it is £50. Charges differ between activities that cause a low disruption to the flow of traffic and other motorists, and those that cause higher disruption. 

Both can be paid at a 50% discount rate (£25/£35) within the first 14 days after the PCN has been served. 

If payment is received after 14 days the full amount will become due.
