Penalty charges - parking offences

The charge for a parking offence will be proportional to the seriousness of the offence (contravention).

We issue penalty charge notices (PCNs) for the parking offences listed below. PCNs for illegal driving offences such as speeding and U-turns are issued by the police and are not payable to Wigan Council.
