Appeal a parking charge issued on an Islington estate

How to appeal against a parking ticket issued on an Islington housing estate

Make an informal appeal

If you remain dissatisfied after making a verbal appeal there is a formal estate parking appeals process.

You can make an appeal to an independent appeals service called Parking on Private Land Appeals (POPLA).

Appeals to POPLA must be made within 28 days of the date of the stage two response. 

If you choose to submit a stage three appeal to POPLA and it is unsuccessful you will be required to pay the full Parking Charge Notice charge of £100. 

Further information is available on the POPLA website or by telephoning POPLA on 0330 159 6126. General email enquiries can be made to info@popla.org.uk
