Warrington is now a ‘very high risk’ local COVID alert level area (tier 3)
Find out more about what this means and the restrictions in place, visit our coronavirus webpages for more information.
We issue parking tickets, or Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs), on council car parks and for unlawful parking on double yellow lines and in waiting and loading bays. We also issue tickets for driving in bus lanes.
If you want to appeal you have to do it in writing, either by post or email:
Warrington Notice Processing, PO Box 229, Sheffield, S98 1PF
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0344 800 85 40
We need to know
You must appeal within 28 days, or it may be automatically refused. If you don’t appeal within 14 days, you won’t be able to pay the reduced fee of £30 if the appeal is refused.
If, after you write to us, we accept your appeal we’ll cancel the ticket and either email or write to you to let you know.
If we reject your informal challenge, we’ll let you know and you’ll have a further 14 days to pay the reduced amount (if you originally appealed within 14 days), or the full amount if you appealed after 14 days.
If you don’t pay within 28 days, we’ll send you a Notice to Owner (NtO) letter which gives you another chance to pay the fine.
If you feel you still have grounds to appeal then you can make a formal representation to Warrington Notice Processing, PO Box 229, Sheffield, S98 1PF. You must make this representation within 28 days otherwise we may disregard it.
If we accept your representation, we’ll cancel the ticket and let you know.
If we refuse your representation, we’ll send you a Notice of Rejection letter with a Traffic Penalty Tribunal (TPT) appeal form attached. You can either pay the full charge, or appeal to the TPT, who are an independent organisation and won’t charge you to appeal.
If you don’t pay the fine or appeal to the TPT within 28 days we’ll issue a Charge Certificate. This will increase your fine.
You no longer have a right to appeal at this stage.
If you don’t pay the Charge Certificate within 14 days we may register the debt through the county court, and it’s likely that you may have to pay further costs.
