Civil Parking Enforcement

Civil Parking Enforcement (CPE)

In February 2017, Gwent Police confirmed in writing to all five Gwent Local Authorities that they intended “to withdraw its officers and staff from activities that involve enforcing parking restrictions”.

Gwent is the only area of Wales where the local authorities have not taken on these powers and involves the transfer of powers from the police forces to local authorities.

As a result, Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Monmouthshire, Newport and Torfaen Councils are all in the process of taking on Civil Parking Enforcement (CPE).

The advantages of introducing CPE in the Blaenau Gwent county borough include control over where, when and how parking in the county borough is controlled, therefore enabling more flexible service provision where needed, improving compliance with parking restrictions and reducing congestion.

For any queries in relation to Civil Parking Enforcement and existing traffic orders in Blaenau Gwent, please email the CPE Team using the following email address:
