Debt collection for unpaid PCN's is an essential component of operating decriminalised parking enforcement under the TMA 2004. Debt collection services produce different results in terms of % collection and have slightly different business practices within the constraints of their professional code of conduct and the law. It is prudent to periodically seek quotation for services under competition.


To appoint Marston (Holdings) Ltd as the debt collection service for unpaid PCN's issued under the Traffic Management Act 2004 by Tendring District Council

Alternative options considered:

Option 1 - The only alternative is to not appoint and risk increasing financial burden on the Council.
