Parking Enforcement changes

Published: 03 September 2021

Civil Parking Enforcement (CPE) is coming to South Oxfordshire, Vale of White Horse and Cherwell Districts.
Over the past year, Oxfordshire County Council, in partnership with South Oxfordshire, Vale of White Horse and Cherwell District Councils has been progressing with a project to allow Civil Parking Enforcement (CPE) to be implemented across South, Vale and Cherwell Districts. This is where powers to enforce parking contraventions transfers from the Police to the County Council. It is expected CPE will bring a number of benefits to residents, businesses and other road users, including increased compliance of parking restrictions and less blocking of major traffic routes by parked vehicles.
When the changes come into effect, parking enforcement in South, Vale and Cherwell Districts will be managed on the County Councils behalf by Conduent Parking Enforcement Solutions Ltd, who currently carry out on-street enforcement on behalf of the County Council within Oxford City. This service works well, and the County Council believes it can extend the current operations with minimal disruption and costs.
