You have the option to appeal against the charge you have received. However, we would issue the following guidance should you wish to pursue this course. A parking charge is issued if a vehicle is parked in contravention of the advertised conditions on property we own, lease or have been contracted to patrol.
Please be aware that our signage meets or exceeds the requirements of the International Parking Community codes of conduct. However, if you feel you have grounds for appeal, please do so within 21 days of issue. Should you wish to pursue an appeal, please ensure your appeal contains the following information or we will be unable to process it:
Your PCN number
Your name and full postal address including postcode
Whether you were the driver, keeper or hirer of the vehicle on the date in question (we cannot consider an appeal without this information)
Your vehicle registration number
The date of the contravention
Any copies of evidence you have to support your appeal
Your contact telephone number and email address
Writing your appeal.
When writing your appeal please ensure that 21 days have not passed from issue date. Please further ensure than your reason is detailed and includes all data and evidence that you feel is relevant. Our appeals department will respond within 28 days by email or post with a decision. The payment WILL NOT increase whilst a decision is being made if the appeal has been made within the reduced payment period (14 days from issue).
