Reason for consultation West Mercia Police, currently, hold the power to enforce illegal parking penalties but they often don’t have the resources to do so.

We want to take over this role, known as Civil Parking Enforcement, or CPE, for both parking on roads, pavements and in council owned car parks.

To do that, we must apply to the Department for Transport to have these powers transferred from West Mercia Police to the Council. As part of that application, we must prepare a business case that is strengthened by including the views of residents, workers, visitors and businesses in the borough.
Overview We want to know what you think of inconsiderate and illegal parking in the borough, what the problems are and where they are.

We will use the information to support our application for parking enforcement powers to the Department for Transport.

What happens next? The responses will be collated and form part of the business case that will be submitted to the Department for Transport.
