Report and track roads and highways problems

Report a parking problem

You can report a parking problem in Central Bedfordshire by calling 0300 300 8005. We will investigate to see if we can help sort the parking issues you have raised. Please be aware that it might not be possible to send an officer to the area immediately.

Parking on single yellow lines

Parking restrictions on single yellow lines can be enforced during times outlined on time plates in that area. Time plates will show restricted days and times. If you park on a single yellow line during restricted times, you could be issued with a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).

Parking on double yellow lines

Parking on double yellow lines can be enforced 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. If you park on a double yellow line, you could be issued with a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).

When we cannot issue a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN)

Before you report a parking problem to us please take into account that we cannot issue a penalty notice if:

  • there isn't a parking restriction
  • a vehicle parked on a yellow line is loading/unloading or picking up/dropping off passengers
  • a disabled motorist has parked on a yellow line (single or double) for three hours or less

If a vehicle is causing an obstruction where no parking restrictions exist, you could contact the police as they can issue penalties in these circumstances.
