Don't be a problem parker

From the 5th July 2010, Cardiff Council took over responsibility from the police for enforcing parking and yellow line restrictions throughout the whole of Cardiff using our own enforcement teams.

The police continue to issue tickets to drivers who park on zigzag markings, cause obstructions and park dangerously.

The new scheme aims to bring significant improvements to the city, making it safer for pedestrians, easier for public transport and better for the disabled community.

Information on the new scheme can be found here or you can contact Connect to Cardiff on 029 2087 2087.

Please park considerately, legally and safely at all times. Don't park in areas that are reserved for the use of residents such as those with resident parking bays or "Access Only" streets.

If you live in a street where there are resident parking bays you need to make sure that your car has a valid permit displayed at all times.

Please remember that you can now pay for residential parking permits by credit or debit card. Permits are issued from County Hall or by post and cost:

Number of Permits
Cost1st £5
2nd £30
3rd £45
4th or more (each) £60
Visitor's Permit £5

You'll need to produce evidence that the vehicle is your own and that you reside at the property. For more information on the types of evidence that will be accepted click here.
