The Parish Council is not responsible for on-street car parking problems. They should be referred to the North Essex Parking Partnership who will decide how to proceed.

The Partnership is responsible for on-street Civil Enforcement Officers ("traffic wardens"); the enforcement process together with challenges to, and payments of, parking penalties ("parking fines") plus administration of the parking restrictions ("yellow lines") and the management and maintenance of parking schemes.

The NEPP brings together all on-street parking enforcement and operations for Braintree, Colchester, Epping Forest, Harlow, Tendring and Uttlesford Councils. The NEPP operational service also provides off-street car parking services in the districts/borough of Braintree, Colchester, Epping Forest, Harlow and Uttlesford who are each members of the NEPP JPC Off-Street Parking Sub-Committee.

Essex County Council has also delegated its powers to make parking Traffic Regulation Orders (parking restrictions/permissions such as "yellow lines" and parking bays and permit areas) to the NEPP.

The NEPP website can be found here and you can contact them by email or on 01206 282316 (usual office hours are Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm - however, due to the Coronavirus, they are operating a reduced service of 10am - 4pm)

Please note that the Parish Council has no car parks that are just for parking; rather, they serve the facilities that it owns or is responsible for. See Car Parks
