Challenge Penalty Charge Notices (PCN) in Nottingham Without a Lawyer
Parking tickets are commonplace in the UK, with the top 10 councils collecting more than $65 million in revenue in 2020 alone. Receiving a fine for contravention of parking regulations happens far too often, with motorists paying the cost to fill the coffers of local city councils.
If you receive a Parking Charge Notice (PCN), Nottingham authorities have set guidelines to make fast payments. But, before you send that cheque, let DoNotPay show you how to appeal the PCN quickly and easily.
All you have to do is snap a picture of the citation, and DoNotPay does the rest. Don't get stuck in a complicated appeals process. Our automated system can help you file a Nottingham PCN appeal in under two minutes. We can also help you file appeals for an Islington PCN, a Birmingham PCN, the TfL, or appeals for many other areas throughout the UK.
Here is everything you need to know to get started.

How to Challenge a PCN Nottingham Fine
If a motorist believes a Nottingham PCN has been issued incorrectly, you can challenge it online or by writing to the council.
Submit an Online Challenge
- Go to the Nottingham City Council portal
- Enter your Parking Penalty Charge Notice Serial Number (PCN)

The system will find your ticket and walk you through the appeal process. If the council cancels the Penalty Charge, you will receive a written letter of confirmation.

Submit a Challenge in Writing
If you prefer to submit a challenge in writing, send the following information to Parking Regulation and Compliance:

Reasons to Dispute a Parking Ticket and Request a Formal Representation in Nottingham
If Nottingham Council does not receive a payment within 28 days (or 14 days of the reply to an informal appeal), a Notice to Owner is sent requesting immediate payment of the full £35 or £70.
Regardless of who was operating the vehicle, the owner is responsible for the Parking Penalty Charge.
You may make a Formal Representation if:
- The violation did not happen
- It has not been 28 days since the contravention occurred
- The penalty exceeds the relevant amount
- The Traffic Order is invalid
- You were not the owner of the vehicle at the time of the contravention
- The vehicle was used without your consent
- You are a hire firm and have supplied identifying information
Questions about formal appeals can be sent by post or via email.
How to Appeal to the Traffic Penalty Tribunal
If your challenge is denied, Nottingham Council will send a Notice of Rejection of Representation. Your final opportunity to appeal the Penalty Charge is to appeal to the external and independent Traffic Penalty Tribunal.
There is no charge to file an appeal, and you do not have to attend the tribunal proceedings. Fill out the required form that was attached to the Notice of Rejection and send it to:
Traffic Penalty Tribunal, Springfield House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5BG.
If the Traffic Penalty Tribunal accepts your appeal, Nottingham Council is instructed to cancel the PCN. If the appeal is rejected, you must pay the fine in full, or risk increased penalty fees, court costs and a negative credit rating. You can contact the Traffic Penalty Tribunal for additional information at email@example.com or by phone at 01625 445555.
