All challenges must be made in writing to Newcastle City Council. If your appeal is received within the first 14 days after the Penalty Charge Notice is served (or 21 days if the PCN was served following enforcement by the ANPR car - in these cases the PCN Notice number begins with NU90) the discounted penalty charge rate may be re-offered to you if your appeal is rejected for a further period of 14 days or 21 days, as applicable.
It may take up to 24 hours from the time of issue for the PCN to be downloaded and appear on this system.
The online form allows you to submit an appeal and also view information regarding where, when and why the Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) was issued plus any supporting images taken by the Enforcement Officer at the time the PCN was issued. This is a joint facility that can also be used for making payment.
The online appeals form allows up to 3 JPEG or PDF files to be attached to support your appeal, with a maximum file size of 5MB.
We would recommend that you attach any evidence you believe supports your appeal, in order to aid the earliest consideration of your appeal.
Examples of items which you may wish to submit with your appeal can include –
• Copies or images of pay and display tickets;
• Evidence of payment to park via the PayByPhone service;
• Copies or images of relevant parking permits or disabled parking badges;
• Delivery notes to support claims of loading/unloading activity;
• Copies of valid vehicle hiring agreements, if you are a vehicle hire/lease company.
