Appealing a Penalty Charge Notice

A Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) may be issued by:

  • a Civil Enforcement Officer (CEO) for a parking contravention (the Traffic Management Act 2004)
  • or by use of prescribed Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) equipment, (the London Local Authorities Act 2000).

Appealing a Penalty Charge Notice

If you believe that the Penalty Charge Notice you received should not have been issued, or that there are special reasons why it should be cancelled, you can appeal against a Penalty Charge Notice.

Payment of a Penalty Charge Notice

There is a 50% discount if payment of a Penalty Charge Notice is received by the council within 14 days of the date the PCN was issued.

Please note that it is not possible to pay a PCN and then contest the charge. Payment of a Penalty Charge Notice show you have accepted liability and the right of appeal is lost.
