Please do not pay the PCN if you wish to submit a representation. A payment received for a PCN closes the case as liability for the contravention has been accepted.

Your challenge should be made as soon as possible.

Please note that if you have received a bus lane PCN or a Notice to Owner letter then only the registered keeper can appeal. This rule does not apply if you have hired the vehicle and have received correspondence from the Council.

How to appeal online

Before you start make sure that you have your vehicle registration number, your penalty charge notice (PCN) number and your contravention code. The penalty charge number starts with BQ and is 10 digits long.

For parking contraventions this information may be found on your PCN:

For bus lane contraventions this information maybe found on your letter in the top right hand side text box. The contravention code is 34 (do not include the J).

  • If your appeal is received within the 14 day discount period but is rejected, you will be allowed a further 14 days to pay the reduced charge. This applies at the first stage of appeal only.
  • You will receive a response through the post.  Please wait for a decision to your appeal, do NOT pay in the meantime.

Please note

If you have any difficulties accessing or using the online system we advise you to try again as faults are quickly resolved.

You may be required to re-enter your details more than once, unfortunately this cannot be avoided.

You may not challenge your penalty if:

  • you have paid it. You must either pay or challenge, not both
  • you have received a Charge Certificate as by this time it is too late to challenge
