PCN APPEALED WITHIN 14 days but council is denying they received appeal

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I have received a pcn because my car broken down and i parked on double yellow lines for few minutes .

Traffic warden issued ticket for that.

 

I sent appeal to the council via fax last day of 14 days period which was 19th may.

I got the receipt of the the fax transmission.

 

I called council today and they informed me they didn’t received any appeal and i have to pay £130.00 now or i should wait for NTO and then fine will be £195.00 once they ill issue nto.

 

I m not sure where i m standing now?

 

thanks

No, don't wait for the NTO.

 

If the 14 days expired on 19 may, you have until 2 June to get a copy of your appeal in, and it should still be considered at the discounted rate. You'll need to make an effort - can you visit in person and hand your appeal over? If not, can you email them? You'd expect an auto-reply which would give you peace of mind that they have it.

 

I wasn't aware anyone used fax any more. Does your council really have a working fax machine?

 

By the way, if you have any paperwork to show the vehicle had broken down, include a copy with the appeal.

The penalty is £130 at the NtO stage. It only increases to £195 at the Charge Certificate stage

Thanks. Just wanted to see what their website says. You're right - no online appeals, but you can appeal by fax! They need to get up to date.
