Appeal a fine

If you have challenge a PCN and do not agree with the decision the Council has given to you, you can make an appeal to the independent adjudicator or Traffic Penalty Tribunal within 28 days of the date of the Notice of Rejection letter being served, you must do this on the form we give you during the challenge process.

Adjudicators are appointed jointly by all relevant local authorities, with the agreement of the Lord Chancellor, and are completely independent. They have a judicial position and should be treated accordingly.

The Adjudicators' decision is final and binding on both parties.
