Penalty Charge Notices (PCN)

Parking Fines

The Council is responsible for enforcing parking restrictions in East Dunbartonshire. Our Community Wardens use an electronic device to store information and produce the ticket, and they also take photos of the vehicle.  They have body worn cameras that can record any incidents or inappropriate behaviour.  At this time Police Scotland will continue to deal with vehicles causing an obstruction.

Parking in a disabled bay

Blue Badge holders can park for free in all of East Dunbartonshire's Council car parks - even where charges are in place and regardless of whether it is in a disabled bay as long as a valid disabled badge is properly displayed.  You do not have to obtain a pay & display ticket. 

Town centre car parks

Charging has been introduced within 9 Council owned town centre car parks and charges will be in force Monday to Saturday  9am to 5.30pm  

The charges are:

  • 0-2 hours - £1
  • 2-3 hours - £2
  • 3-4 hours - £3
  • Over 4 hours - £5

Parking fines

If you receive a Parking Fine or Penalty Charge Notice (PCN), please do not ignore it.

The PCN charge is £60 but if paid within 14 days the fine will reduce to £30. 
If payment has not been received before the period of 28 days further action will be taken.
