Appeal a parking or bus lane fine
How to make an appeal about your Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).
All appeals must be made in writing. You’ll need both:
your 10 digit Penalty Charge Notice number, starting with the letters BS or OB
the vehicle registration number
You can appeal a PCN 24 hours after receiving it.
This is because it takes 24 hours for the PCN to be uploaded into our system.
You can only appeal one PCN at a time. If you want to appeal more than one PCN you'll need to complete a separate form for each one
Appeal by post
Send your letter to Parking Services (PCN Appeals), PO Box 3176, Bristol City Council, Bristol, BS3 9FS.
You can see your case details online, which may include photographs.
