If you have received a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN), Excess Charge Notice (ECN) or Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) and wish to make payment of this notice, you can do so via one of the following options:
You can pay by debit or credit card by using Malvern Hills District Council's (MHDC's) online payment system.

You can call our automated payment system on 0300 456 2013, select the option applicable to the notice you have been issued and follow the prompts to make payment using a debit or credit card.
Please have your fine number with you as you will need to input this number using your phone when asked.

Cheques should be made payable to Malvern Hills District Council. Please do not send cash in the post.
A PCN will either be £50 or £70 depending on the contravention and the amount is reduced by 50% (to £25 or £35) if it is paid within 14 days from the issue date.
If a PCN remains unpaid, it will revert back to the original amount of £50 or £70 for a period of 28 days, after which it will increase by 50% (to £75 or £105).
PCN levels are set nationally.
An ECN will be £60 and is reduced by 50% to £30 if it is paid within 7 days from the issue date.
If an ECN remains unpaid, it will revert back to the original amount of £60.
FPN amounts differ depending on the offence but are similarly reduced if paid within 7 days from the issue date, before reverting back to the original amount.
