The Parking Partnership
The Parking Partnership is a new organisation which, from 1 April 2011, brings together all street-based parking services in Essex. The new service is council-run and is a partnership between Essex County Council and two lead councils: It is in two areas; the North Partnership is led by Colchester Council and the South Partnership by Chelmsford Council. The aim is to run parking enforcement to a fair and consistent standard in order to provide the same level of service but in a more efficient way. The two Partnerships are responsible in each area for the on-street Civil Enforcement Officers ("traffic wardens"); the parking enforcement process together with challenges to, and payments of, parking penalties ("parking fines") plus administration of the parking restrictions ("yellow lines") and the management of the scheme.
