New Civil Parking Enforcement (CPE) for Cherwell, South Oxfordshire and Vale of the White Horse - Coming into force 1st November 2021

Oxfordshire County Council have made an application to create new special enforcement areas (SEAs) in Partnership with Cherwell, South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse District Councils. This means parking offences in those areas typically enforced by the police will now become the responsibility of Oxfordshire County Council.

These parking violations will become civil offences. In Oxfordshire, enforcement will apply for on-street parking (roads and highways).

The changes will result in increased, more consistent enforcement of waiting and loading restrictions, double parking offences and dropped kerb obstructions. There is already civil parking enforcement in Oxford City and West Oxfordshire.

The new enforcement starts on 1st November 2021.
