Permit and PCN portal downtime on 27 July

The parking permits portal (for applying for and renewing a permit) will be unavailable for most of the day on Tuesday 27 July. This is because we are changing it to a new portal.

The parking tickets portal (for reviewing and challenging a PCN) will also be unavailable for most of the day, but you’ll still be able to pay your parking fine.

We’re sorry for any inconvenience this causes.

On this page you will find links to all of the information about parking on our website. You can also view the parking privacy notice.

Can’t find what you’re looking for? Return to the parking, travel and roads homepage or contact us.

Portsmouth City Council provides a range of parking services, including:

  • resident parking schemes, on-street parking and council car parks
  • disabled driver parking
  • abandoned vehicle and non-motorised vehicle removal

The council is also responsible for enforcing parking restrictions and issuing penalty charge notices, which are payable online.

As well as ensuring fair parking for residents, businesses and visitors, we play a vital role in keeping the city moving, monitoring major roads from our traffic control room. We also promote road safety and fight vehicle crime alongside the police.

Parking can be found on the contact us page – for any urgent queries outside of office hours, phone the Traffic Management Centre on 023 9268 8290.

Civil Parking Enforcement - Code of Practice

The Code of Practice is for the council’s Civil Enforcement Officers to follow when issuing penalty charge.

The council is also required to adhere to the Operational Guidance to Local Authorities – additional information can also be found in the Highway Code.
