Parking Tribunal Help
Parking PCN issued by a Civil Enforcement Officer
The Traffic Penalty Tribunal decides appeals against parking penalties issued by Civil Enforcement Authorities in England (outside London) and Wales and against bus-lane penalties issued by Civil Enforcement Authorities in England (outside London).
The Traffic Penalty Tribunal is an independent tribunal whose impartial, independent Adjudicators consider appeals by motorists and vehicle owners whose vehicles have been:
• issued with parking a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) - or have been removed (towed away) or immobilised (clamped) - by a council in England (outside London) and Wales that enforces parking contraventions under the Traffic Management Act 2004.
• issued with a bus-lane Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) by a council in England (outside London) that enforces bus-lane contraventions under the Bus Lane Contraventions (Penalty Charges, Adjudication and Enforcement) (England) Regulations 2005.
The Traffic Penalty Tribunal (TPT) took over from the National Parking Adjudication Service (NPAS) from 31 March 2008. This change was made to allow for the new traffic Regulations introduced from 31 March 2008 under the terms of the Traffic Management Act 2004 and to create more accessible online access to the Tribunal.
As an independent tribunal, the Traffic Penalty Tribunal cannot offer advice either to appellants or to councils on the merits of individual cases.
