Anybody got any idea whether there are any regulations or guidelines which force councils to offer victims of PCN's to pay at the "discounted" rate after an appeal. My reason for asking is that on reading a PCN from Glasgow city council it states that "it is not possible to appeal and then pay at the discounted rate."


I was under the impression that as soon as an appeal is lodged it effectivley "stopped the clock" on the discounted period, and therefore if the appeal failed then it would be possible to pay at the discounted £30 rate.


Your advice would be appreciated. Thanks, Mark

As I understand it, if you make informal representations then they will stop the clock and extend the time you have to pay at the reduced rate. But as soon as they issue the notice to owner the discounted rate is removed.

There is no obligation under the 1991 RTA to accept informal appeals before the NTO or to 'stop the clock' on the discount.

Surely the new tickets are being issued under the TMA 2004 rules.


This does not constitute legal advice and is not represented as a substitute for legal advice from an appropriately qualified person or firm.
