Thousands of motorists pick up parking tickets from North Somerset Council

The parking charges show Clevedon has received the most in the Times patch.

The parking charges show Clevedon has received the most in the Times patch.


More than 1,000 parking tickets were handed out to Clevedon motorists by traffic wardens during the opening months of a new crackdown on illegal parking.

Figures obtained by the Times show three times as many fines were distributed in Clevedon than Nailsea and Portishead combined.

North Somerset Council took over civil parking enforcement – for offences such as parking on double-yellow lines – from the police in early April.

In the opening four months it distributed more than 8,000 tickets, with about 80 per cent given to drivers in Weston.

Clevedon was the only other area where the number of tickets reached four figures, partly because of its pay-and-display car parking areas.

However, some areas received far fewer tickets, with only one person picking up a fine in Wrington, and none distributed in Cleeve, Congresbury, Failand or Yatton.
