Havering Council have provided the following reply to a recent enquiry regarding problems caused by illegally parked vehicles.

‘To ensure parking contraventions are attended to as soon as possible, requests for parking enforcement can be sent directly to the Enforcement Team via an online form – Report an illegally parked vehicle or by telephone on 01708 432 787 (option 6). The on-duty Enforcement Supervisor can be reached on 07946 738 495.

An available Civil Enforcement Officer can then be dispatched to the area of concern as soon as possible. Unfortunately, a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) cannot be issued retrospectively, nor upon third party evidence, as the contravention must be observed by the issuing officer.’
