Hampshire County Council is taking over on-street parking enforcement in Gosport

As part of a continuing drive to improve efficiency in public services, on-street parking enforcement in the borough of Gosport will soon become the responsibility of Hampshire County Council. The County Council has recently obtained civil parking enforcement powers for Gosport, meaning that the County Council will now be enforcing parking contraventions instead of the Police from the 29 September

Councillor Rob Humby, Deputy Leader and Executive Member for Economy, Transport and Environment at Hampshire County Council, said: “A well-managed on-street parking service plays an important part in keeping our roads safe and our towns moving.  As we move into a stabilisation phase after the COVID-19 outbreak, it’s important we do all we can to support the local economy and the return to schools and colleges by ensuring people can travel safely and reliably to where they need to go – whether that’s school, college, shopping or work. 

We have appointed national company NSL to deliver on-street parking enforcement in Test Valley, the New Forest, and Fareham already, and from 29 September Gosport will be added to this list. 

The on-street parking enforcement will be undertaken by Civil Enforcement Officers, employed on the County Council’s behalf by NSL.  This will mean that anyone parking in contravention of a parking restriction, risks being issued with a Penalty Charge Notice from the 29 September.
