Challenge your parking fine

Important: If you pay your penalty then you lose your right to appeal by law. No further comments or challenges will be responded to and the council will consider the matter closed.

Please allow up to 48 hours from the issue for the penalty to appear on the system.

An informal challenge can only be made prior to the Notice to Owner being issued.

You will need:

  • The PCN Number,
  • Vehicle registration,
  • Copies of pay and display tickets - if applicable (please keep originals for your records),
  • Any other supporting evidence.

If the challenge is received within 14 days of the ticket being issued any discount applicable will be frozen until a reply is issued.

The appeals team will aim to reply to your challenge within 10 working days, however currently there are  delays which we apologise for.

If your informal challenge is refused the council will generally offer an extended discount period for payment. However, if you still believe the penalty should not be paid you should wait for the notice to the owner and raise a formal challenge.

If your challenge is unsuccessful you can appeal our decision to the independent Traffic Penalty Tribunal.
