Parking fines

Overview

All the pay and display car parks in the borough are regularly patrolled by Hinckley & Bosworth Enforcement Officers and you will be required to pay a parking fine (penalty charge) if you fail to comply with the parking regulations which are displayed on the notice boards in the car parks. You pay your fine to Leicestershire County Council.

On-street parking enforcement is controlled by Leicestershire County Council. For information regarding on-street and off-street rules and regulations please visit Leicestershire County Council's website or contact:
