  • Burnley
  • Chorley
  • Fylde
  • Hyndburn
  • Lancaster

We also enforce the parking restrictions on a number of district council car parks in Lancaster, South Ribble and Wyre.

We can enforce a number of parking restrictions, including:

  • Vehicles parked on yellow lines or where loading restrictions are in force
  • Vehicles parked without clearly displaying a valid or the correct permit/voucher/ticket to allow them to do so
  • Vehicles parked for longer than the purchased time or for longer than permitted in pay and display or limited waiting bays
  • Vehicles parked in a suspended bay during controlled hours
  • Vehicles parked in a bus stop or bus lane during prohibited hours
  • Vehicles parked excessively outside of bay markings

We operate the service in accordance with national legislation, primarily, the Traffic management Act 2004, more information can be found at
