PARKING NEAR THE SCHOOL
A new initiative has just been launched in the Harlow area by the North Essex Parking Partnership [NEPP]. Their aim is to reduce the level of unsafe parking around schools.
NEPP has Civil Enforcement Officers [CEOs]. They will still be working on foot, but now they also have a patrol car which will enable them to cover greater areas more regularly.
The CEOs have the power to issue Penalty Charge Notices [PCN]. They will take photos from the patrol car and follow up cases where a PCN should be issued if not done on the spot. They obtain home addresses from the DVLA and PCNs are normally issued in the post. The charge is £70 or can be reduced to £35 if paid within a certain period.
You will see that there is a poster on a reception window publicising the use of the vehicle and a reminder to park safely with regard to all road users.
