Parking issues we can enforce

We can enforce issues such as:

We also cannot enforce any issues on TfL red routes.

How to report parking issues

Vehicles which are in parking contravention can be reported by telephone or by email.

After the report is made

We will try to send a Civil Enforcement Officer to the scene of the report but cannot guarantee immediate attendance before a vehicle moves on. Reports of parking issues will be tracked by NSL Lewisham Parking Services whether a Penalty Charge Notice is issued or not.

Enforcement will be adjusted as parking issues are identified over time.
