If you think that you should not have received a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN), or there are special reasons why it should be cancelled, you can appeal.
Before you appeal
- If the PCN was served today, you will
not be able to view the details or photographic evidence until the following day.
- We are
unable to accept any challenges by telephone.
- Please do not make payment at this stage as payment is acceptance of liability
You must challenge each case individually by inputting each unique PCN number.
To appeal, you will need:
- your vehicle registration number
- the PCN number listed on your parking ticket
How to appeal
Visit our Parking Services site where you can also view photographic evidence relating to your PCN. You can include jpeg attachments:

We are unable to accept emails once the Notice to Owner has been served.
Write to us
Please provide as much information as you can to support your reasons why the PCN should be cancelled.
If your letter is received within 14 days of the date the PCN was issued and the challenge is rejected, the council will decide whether to re-offer the 14-day discount period, dependent upon the circumstances of the individual case.
We aim to respond to your challenge within 14 days.

Northamptonshire County Council
