Report outlining the recommended Enforcement Agents to award the Parking Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) debt contract.


1.    To note that Appendix 1 is not for publication on the basis that it contains

information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding that information) as set out in paragraph 3 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended).


2.    To award a contract to Marston Holdings as the appointed primary contractor who will receive 100% of the Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) debt warrants at the initiation of the contract.


3.    To award a concession contract to CDER as the secondary contractor to receive PCN warrants if not successfully enforced 6-months after receipt by Marston Holdings.


4.    To note that this split of 100% to 0% will be reviewed once capability is created within the Parking management system to ensure that cases relating to one individual will never be split between the two contractors causing them both to enforce on the same debtor at the same time. This project will be undertaken after the contract initiation and will have a targeted timeframe of 6 months. 

Reasons for the decision:

To agree the award of a concession contract for Parking Enforcement.


Alternative options considered:
