Appealing a Penalty Charge Notice
You can appeal a parking ticket if you believe:
- the ticket should not have been issued, or
- that there are special reasons why it should be cancelled.
You can't challenge a PCN and then challenge the charge. Paying the fine shows you have accepted liability and the right of appeal is lost.
Who issues a PCN?
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).
