Ways to pay
You can also pay your Penalty Charge Notice by telephone (credit/debit card payments only). The 24-hour automated payment line is 0345 5201357. Choose option one. Make sure you have your vehicle details and PCN number ready.
Pay by post using the payment slip attached to the PCN to Central Processing Unit, PO BOX 10282, Nottingham NG17 0DX. Allow 2 working days for 1st Class post and 5 working days for 2nd class post. Cheques should be made payable to Nottinghamshire County Council.
If the penalty charge is not paid or challenged on or before the 28-day period as specified on the ticket, the council may serve a Notice to Owner (NtO) on the owner of the vehicle, requiring payment. The owner can then make representations to the Central Processing Unit and may appeal to an independent adjudicator if those representations are rejected. The NtO will contain instructions for doing this.
Further information about Civil Parking Enforcement (including PCNs and NtOs) is available on the Patrol UK website.
