Parking enforcement

A number of people who completed my recent survey raised the issue of problem parking.

Civil parking enforcement powers transferred to the five local authorities in Gwent in 2019. Local authorities are now responsible for enforcing most parking offences on public roads.

It means that there are dedicated resources to tackle this problem and the councils, unlike the police, can keep the money raised to reinvest in road and transport improvements.

You can get more information and report an issue via your local council’s website:
