Parking fine - make a payment

Parking fines issued by the council are called Penalty Charge Notices. NSL Services Ltd provide parking enforcement for council car parks and on street parking on behalf of Bury Council.

The current parking Penalty Charge Notice fee is either £50.00 or £70.00. If you pay within 14 days this is reduced by half to £25.00 or £35.00.

You can pay now using a debit or credit card.
