Annual Parking Report 2019 to 2020
Challenges, Representations and Appeals
The purpose of a PCN is to encourage compliance with parking restrictions. The issue of a PCN should act as a deterrent and hopefully through time re-educate drivers to ensure parking regulations are adhered to. CEO's will only issue a PCN where they are convinced from the evidence they have before them that a contravention has occurred.
The Council is committed to give a fair, transparent and consistent approach to dealing with correspondence at all times throughout the appeals process.
The aim of the Council is to respond to all informal challenges within 14 days, and formal representations within the required 56 days timeframe. For further information on parking policy and enforcement visit our how to pay a parking fine page. or the Patrol UK website.
