Parking fines (council-owned car parks)
What if I get a parking ticket on an LDC car park?

- Serious offences, such as parking in a disabled bay without a valid blue badge, will incur a fine of £70 (or £35 if you pay within 14 days).
- Less serious offences, such as not displaying a valid ticket, will incur a fine of £50 (or £25 if you pay within 14 days).
