Appeal a Parking Ticket (PCN)

A Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) is a method of parking enforcement which can be used by the local authority. This has a statutory basis under the Road Traffic Act 1991. For penalty charge notices issued under The Road Traffic Act 1991 the registered keeper of the vehicle is liable.

  • The PCN shows the alleged contravention together with the place, time and date that it occurred. If you feel it was incorrectly issued, you can make an appeal.
  • If your appeal is rejected you will be sent a reply explaining the reasons why, and advising what you can do next.
  • If your appeal is accepted the PCN will be withdrawn and you will be notified.
  • Please note you cannot pay and appeal a Penalty Charge Notice.

Notice to Owner

  • If full payment is received within 28 days of issue of the PCN the case will be closed; if payment is not received a 'Notice to Owner' will be sent to the registered keeper.
  • When you receive a 'Notice to Owner' payment or representation can be made.
  • Representation can only be made on certain grounds which are explained on the Notice to Owner form, however we may consider exceptional circumstances that are not covered by the categories on the form.
  • Representation will be carefully considered and if the council agrees with your representations you will receive a 'Notice of Acceptance' and the case will be closed, but if not, you will receive a 'Notice of Rejection'
  • If we reject your representation, you have the right to appeal to an independent adjudicator, namely the Parking and Bus Lane Tribunal Service.
  • We will enclose the appropriate form to enable you to appeal to them with the "Notice of Rejection". If the Parking and Bus Lane Tribunal Service rejects your appeal, the amount payable will be the full £60.00.
