Challenge a parking fine

If you feel that a notice should not have been issued or there are mitigating circumstances, then you can challenge the penalty charge notice.

You can use our online form to:

Challenge a penalty notice

or you can send a letter to Parking Appeals Team, Town Hall, St Owen Street, Hereford HR1 2PJ.

A challenge can only be made in writing. Make sure your challenge includes both the penalty charge notice number AND your vehicle registration. We need these details to connect your challenge to the notice. Please also provide your address so that we can reply to you.

If you have evidence to support your challenge, please send a legible copy with your correspondence.

We aim to reply to all letters within 15 working days of receipt. If we can't give a full reply within ten days, we'll send an acknowledgement within five days of receipt.

Once we receive a challenge to a notice, we'll put that notice on hold until we have responded.

If a challenge is received within 14 days of the date the Penalty Charge Notice was issued and is unsuccessful, a further 14 days will be given for you to pay at the discounted amount.
