There are several ways to pay a Penalty Charge Notice.
If you believe a Penalty Charge Notice has been issued incorrectly you can challenge it in writing within 28 days of it's issue.
If your challenge is sent within 14 days of the PCN issue date, the 50% discount amount will remain while we consider your challenge. If your challenge is unsuccessful and the council upholds the PCN, you will be given the opportunity to pay the discounted rate as long as it is received within 14 days of the date of our letter of reply.
If your challenge is sent between 15 and 28 days after the PCN issue date the full penalty charge will apply.
State your case clearly and simply. If you have evidence to support your claim, such as receipts or witness statements, please include copies of these.
You can make a challenge:
Penalty Charge Notices are issued in line with the Traffic Management Act 2004 and all Local Authorities outside of London must process a PCN in line with the guidelines set by the Parking and Traffic Regulations Outside of London (PATROL).
