We carryout parking enforcement as a joint partnership agreement with Bridgend County Borough Council. 


Civil Enforcement Officers (CEO) patrol various areas of the county on a daily basis, usually concentrating on the areas that need the most improvement in terms of parking compliance. 


CEOs help identify illegal and irresponsible parking. Their job is to keep our roads clear and safe and to help achieve compliance with the parking restrictions. In most instances where appropriate, before issuing a ticket they will use their discretion and try to explain to the driver why they should not be parked illegally.

Park Tidy Campaign

We want to ensure the Vale of Glamorgan is a safe place to walk, drive and cycle. We're using the hashtags #ParkTidy and #ParcioTwt to promote safer parking across the Vale. You can highlight concerns about consistent inappropriate parking in the Vale via an online form.


Report Parking Issue


Reporting Illegally or Inappropriately Parked Vehicles

You can report an illegally or inappropriately parked vehicle by contacting the parking manager directly at Bridgend


We are unable to send out a CEO to provide an immediate response although any reported issues will be logged and monitored as soon as possible. We can only enforce parking where the appropriate restriction is in place with the relevant line markings and/or signs.
