There are no formal grounds of appeal against a penalty notice. If you do not agree that you committed the offence, then the matter will be dealt with though formal prosecution via the courts.
To avoid prosecution, you must pay the notice within 14 days. If you do not agree that an offence has been committed and/or you do not pay the FPN within the 14 days, a summons will be issued against you and the case will be heard in the Magistrates’ Court. If convicted, you could be fined and be ordered to pay the costs of the prosecution.
The financial penalty imposed by the courts can be up to £2,500 and if convicted you may receive a criminal record.
You can query an FPN in the form of a ‘representation’.
Before you submit your representation, please read the Frequently asked questions for members of the public and businesses.
