Penalty Charge Notices (PCN)

Our parking fines are called Penalty Charge Notices (PCN) and they are issued when a driver parks their vehicle illegally.

The fines for parking illegally in Harrow are:

  • between £60 and £130 depending on the severity of the traffic violation
  • reduced by 50% if paid within 14 days (or 21 days for some types of offence as stated on your PCN)

PCN penalties need to be paid but does not result in a criminal record or points on a driving licence.

We use CCTV cameras to record moving traffic and bus lane offences, such as driving in a bus lane during restricted hours or taking a banned right turn.

What can I do if I get a PCN?

If you are issued with a PCN you can:

I have lost my PCN and I need to pay or challenge my PCN

If you have lost your PCN reference number, you can complete our PCN reference finder form. You can also email [email protected] quoting your vehicle registration number and we will be able to locate your PCN number.

Why has the amount I need to pay doubled?

Once the PCN has been issued there is a 14 day period where the penalty remains at a discounted rate. Following this period the penalty goes up to the full charge.

Full details can be found on your PCN ticket.

CCTV footage

CCTV footage of your traffic violation can be viewed either at our offices or we can send you the footage by post for free.

To view the footage or request for it be sent by post please send your PCN number which begins with 'HR', and your vehicle registration number to us by email.
