Parking enforcement

  • disabled parking bays
  • bus stops and bus lanes
  • illegal parking in taxi ranks
  • loading bays
  • short-stay car parking spaces

For issues with illegally parked cars or similar issues, please contact Leicestershire County Council’s Highway Customer Services by telephone on 0116 305 0001 or email

Full information on the scheme can be found on the County Council's Parking Matters website.
