Receiving a PCN in Waltham Forest

If you are issued a PCN in Waltham Forest you will receive it in one of three ways.

  1. By post - Most areas of Waltham Forest are monitored by CCTV cameras and many PCN are issued through the use of this technology, resulting in a PCN being sent by post when a violation is detected. The footage evidence from the CCTV cameras is available online to view before you make payment.
  2. On the vehicle's windscreen - CCTV enforcement vehicles patrol high traffic areas and areas that receive a high volume of traffic complaints. The parking enforcement officers will issue PCN when necessary in the council car parks, bays and other parking facilities.
  3. Parking enforcement officers - These enforcement officers will issue PCN for violations that they encounter while on patrol. These PCN can be delivered on the windscreen of your vehicle, by post or by direct delivery when the driver is present.
