Frequently asked questions

  • Appeals should be sent to us, in writing, within 28 days of receiving your Parking Charge Notice. The address to send your appeal to is printed on the Parking Charge Notice.

    We will respond to your appeal within 14 days of receiving it.

    If at first we only acknowledge the challenge, we will write to you again within 35 days accepting or rejecting your appeal.

    If we reject your appeal we will send you the details of Parking on Private Land Appeals (POPLA) – the Independent Appeals Service.

    If you use the POPLA Service, and your Appeal is unsuccessful, the full Parking Charge will apply and you will not be able to pay at the reduced rate.

  • The appeals department will consider each appeal on their own merits and write back to advise you of the outcome.

  • The appeals department does accept appeals via email:appeals@ce-service.co.uk
