The Parking Partnership

The Parking Partnership brings together all street-based parking services in Essex. The service is council-run and is a partnership between Essex County Council and two lead councils: It is in two areas; the North Essex Parking Partnership (NEPP) is led by Colchester Council and the South Essex Parking Partnership (SEPP) 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.

North Essex Parking Partnership

The North Essex Parking Partnership deals with all correspondence and payments for Braintree, Colchester, Epping Forest, Harlow, Tendring and Uttlesford.

South Essex Parking Partnership

The South Essex Parking Partnership deals with all correspondence and payments for Basildon, Brentwood, Castle Point, Chelmsford, Maldon and Rochford.
