How to Contest Lewisham Council PCN and Win

Property owners have the authority to charge for and regulate parking. Suppose you've obstructed a hospital entryway, for example. You'll have to pay up because you've breached the rules. Nonetheless, mistakes happen, whether it's a muddled sign, faulty technology, pushy personnel, or an honest oversight.

If you were slapped with an unjust ticket in a private parking lot in , do not pay the fine right away. These ostensibly imposed 'fines' are bills that are frequently unenforceable and can be overturned.

However, disputing a parking ticket can be challenging when you do it alone. There’s no need to worry because DoNotPay is here to help you. We understand the stress that comes with doing it on your own, and we do it on your behalf so that you can save that much-needed time.

  • The PCN (Product Code Number)
  • Your vehicle's license plate number
  • A credit or debit card that is in good standing

Formal Representation
