APCOA wins Wandsworth parking services contract

APCOA has been awarded a new parking services contract with the London Borough of Wandsworth, commencing on 1 August 2024.

The contract centres around on-the-ground enforcement of the borough’s parking regulations by APCOA Civil Enforcement Officers (CEOs) who will contribute towards the council’s focus on sustainability by covering the borough on foot or using an all-electric fleet of e-bikes, electric scooters and electric vehicles. CEO’s will address high polluting incidents of engine idling by informing drivers of the environmental impact and will also carry portable air monitoring devices, gathering data to inform the council’s ongoing focus on improving air quality for its 329,000 residents.

APCOA CEO’s will operate in the borough seven days a week, enforcing Wandsworth’s parking regulations, put in place to keep traffic moving safely, to maintain access for emergency vehicles and to ensure that parking is fair and equitable for both residents and visitors. Where necessary, CEO’s will have the ability to report vehicles for re-location and removal.

Wandsworth’s Cabinet Member for Transport Jenny Yates said: “We are looking forward to working with our new parking contractor APCOA and we welcome their commitment to decarbonising their operations.”

APCOA’s Regional Managing Director (UK & Ireland) Kim Challis concludes: “With a vast amount of experience in deployment and outstanding levels of expertise and customer service, we are looking forward to working in close partnership with the London Borough of Wandsworth to deliver an innovative and sustainably focused service.”
