On-street parking account
On-street parking enforcement and on-street parking provision is the responsibility of Essex County Council (ECC), the Highway Authority. ECC have delegated this function to the South Essex Parking Partnership (SEPP) Joint Committee who deliver this function on behalf of ECC via an agency agreement.
SEPP consists of the Boroughs, Districts and City Councils from Basildon, Brentwood, Castle Point, Chelmsford, Maldon and Rochford. SEPP holds a single parking account which is the responsibility of the Joint Committee. The Joint Committee is responsible for how any surplus or deficit is managed. All surpluses are managed as per Section 55 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act (RTRA) 1984.
The parking enforcement activity in Brentwood contributes to the overall SEPP single parking account. Brentwood Borough Council has no direct control of this account.
The SEPP Joint Committee produces an annual report which provides a breakdown of the enforcement activity and financial performance in each of the partner areas.
