What Are Parking Charges Notices?

A PCN is issued by private car park management firms controlling parking in private areas like railway stations, residential areas, hospitals and supermarkets. The private firms create their laws, meaning if you park in the private off-street parking, you should abide by the set rules. In most cases, car park management companies will provide you with their rules and regulations and give you time to assess them. If you dislike the rules, you can leave the parking area at no charge. On the contrary, you can be issued a Penalty Charge Notice for not parking correctly on public land. Traffic wardens mostly issue penalty Charge Notice in town centres or in areas where on-parking is available.

What to Do After a Car Park Management Parking Ticket

If UK CPM issues you with a PCN, you may decide to pay the ticket or appeal the charges. Typically, the company allows you four weeks to make full payment or three weeks to appeal. Most companies offer a 50% discount on the original fine if you make the payment within two weeks. If you fail to pay the PCN within four weeks, you will receive a charge certificate, and you will be required to pay the original fine plus 50% more in two weeks.
