All parking Penalty Charge Notices served by Nottingham City Council are done so under the Traffic Management Act 2004 (previously the Transport Act 2000).
Under this legislation, a two tier charging system is in operation and enforcement authorities must apply different levels of charges depending on the contravention type. The charges are as follows:
- £70, which is reduced to £35 if it is paid within 14 days from the date of service of the Penalty Charge Notice (21 days from the day of service for bus lane contraventions)
- £50, which is reduced to £25 if it is paid within 14 days from the date of service of the Penalty Charge Notice
Please do not pay the Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) if you wish to submit a challenge as payment should not be made if the PCN is in dispute.
If you submit a challenge, your case will be put on hold and the amount owed will not increase.
Submitting fraudulent documentation to avoid the payment of a PCN is a criminal offence and may result in further action being taken.
You can only challenge or appeal a PCN using the following methods.
