Parking enforcement for inappropriate parking

Please be aware that enforcement notices are issued to vehicles not parked in appropriate spaces at the Southampton General and Princess Anne Hospitals.

The enforcement charge is the sum of £70 however this is reduced to £35 if paid within 14 days.

The enforcement is part of our ongoing strategy to improve parking and traffic flow - disruptions to this can compromise the experience of our patients as well as important access for emergency vehicles.

All surplus income generated from the enforcement is used to develop parking facilities and sustainable travel services.
