Worcester City Council is responsible for ensuring all parking activities within the city are carried out correctly and safely, both on street as well as in council owned car parks.
The council has responsibility for enforcing parking regulations throughout the city and a team of Civil Enforcement Officers patrol all the streets and council owned car parks to monitor parking.
Although the vast majority of motorists park their vehicles safely and correctly, some motorists choose not to do so and parking enforcement is therefore necessary in order to:
- Encourage proper, thoughtful parking.
- Assist in reducing congestion on the public roads.
- Maintain a free access for Emergency Service Vehicles.
- Contribute to the safety and well being of pedestrians.
- Assist public transport in moving about the city.
If a vehicle is parked in contravention of the regulations it may attract a Penalty Charge Notice.
Worcester City Council operates fourteen car parks across the historic city of Worcester, one of which is a multi-storey. All the car parks are situated to allow the visitor or resident to gain access to conveniently placed locations that give access the most of the city centre.
Accounts and Audit Program
The council is a member of the Parking and Traffic Regulations Outside London (PATROL) Adjudication Joint Committee. The Joint Committee publishes an Annual Statement of Accounts which is subject to External Audit and the arrangements and timetable for 2009/10 can be found at:
The Blue Badge Scheme
Worcester City Council welcomes holders of Disabled persons blue badges wishing to park in the City. It has made provision in every car park for blue badge holders to park free of charge for a maximum of three hours, by the addition of a minimum of three disabled persons parking bays into every council owned car park.
Blue badges holders may also park for a maximum of three hours on street proving a badge is correctly displayed and no other restrictions to waiting apply. Please visit our Blue Badge Scheme page for further information
