Changes to parking charges

From 1st April there will be some changes to parking in the Fareham Borough.

Hampshire County Council have ended the agreement it had with Fareham Borough Council and so will be taking over on-street parking enforcement.

Fareham Borough Council will continue to be responsible for parking enforcement within its own car parks.

A parking management company will be appointed by the County Council to manage on-street parking enforcement. This company will be responsible for any Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs) issued for on-street parking offences. The new enforcement officers employed by Hampshire County Council will be clearly distinguishable from Fareham Borough Council’s officers.  

Hampshire County Council will also be taking over residents’ parking and visitor permits and may introduce changes to their terms. This means:

Cllr Trevor Cartwright, Executive Member for Health and Public Protection at Fareham Borough Council, said: “Although Hampshire County Council haven’t confirmed all the details of their new on-street parking service, we wanted to inform our residents and visitors at the earliest opportunity. We have written to all our parking permit holders to inform them of the changes and will publicise further details regarding the new on-street parking service once we have them.”

From 1st April requests for on-street parking restrictions, such as new yellow lines, will also be processed by Hampshire County Council. The County Council plan to create a new webpage for the new on-street parking service. Fareham Borough Council will link to this page its own website once this is live.
