What happens next
If you email or write to us within 14 days of the ticket being issued, we will put your case on hold until we respond.
If you are unsuccessful in your appeal
We will reconsider offering the discount for a further 14 days.
If you are unhappy with our decision
Please do not write to us again until a Notice to Owner (or an Enforcement Notice, where applicable) has been issued to the registered keeper of the vehicle. This is sent 28 days or more after the date the ticket was issued.
Appeal step 2: Formal appeal
The Notice to Owner gives the keeper of the vehicle the opportunity to make a formal appeal, this is in addition to any appeal that has previously been made. You may however have to pay the charge in full if you are unsuccessful.
Appeal step 3: Appeal to the adjudicator
If you do make a formal appeal and it is unsuccessful, you can still make a further appeal to an independent adjudicator at the Environment and Traffic Adjudicator (ETA). An ETA form will be sent with the rejection letter should your formal appeal fail.
The adjudicator is fully independent of the council and his or her decision is legally binding on both parties.
