Appeal a car park fine

If you want to dispute your penalty charge notice, you must do so as soon as possible. 

If you appeal within 14 days of the date the ticket was served, progression of the charge will be put on hold pending a decision on your appeal.

If you do not pay your Penalty Charge Notice, and you do not successfully appeal, we will take steps to recover the debt and the cost of the debt will increase the longer it remains unpaid.
