Nuisance parking

We issue fines (penalty charge notice or PCNs) for the following:

  • parking on yellow lines
  • not displaying a valid parking ticket
  • parking on pavements or verges where a restriction is in place
  • parking across driveways

We do not get involved with neighbourly disputes or inconsiderate parking.

To report an illegally parked vehicle, please contact the Enforcement Team on enforcement.team@bedford.gov.uk on 01234 718359.

An enforcement officer will respond to your request as soon as possible, but they may not be able to do so immediately if they are patrolling elsewhere in the Borough.

Please note you won't get a reply about the outcome of an enforcement officer visit.

When the police get involved

The police take action when a vehicle is causing an obstruction. To contact the police, please call 101.
