Paying a penalty charge notice

You can pay a penalty charge notice (PCN) online, by phone, or by post.

You can appeal a PCN if you believe it has been wrongly issued. You won’t be able to appeal a penalty charge notice after you’ve paid it.

You’ll need the PCN number to pay. The reduced rate charge will only be accepted if payment is received within the specified time.

Failure to pay may result in the case being passed over to a debt recovery agency.

Paying online

To pay online, follow the below instructions: 

  1. enter your PCN number into the reference box under ‘on street parking fines’ or ‘off street Car Parks’
  2. click ‘get details’

This will pull through the amount outstanding and allow you to add to basket to make payment.
