If you contravene parking restrictions in County Durham you may receive a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).
The amount of the penalty charge will depend on the level of contravention. If you have received a PCN you may be able to view photographic evidence of the contravention online at Parking Gateway.
If you pay the penalty charge within 14 days it will be reduced by 50%.
If no payment is received within 28 days of the PCN being served a Notice to Owner (NtO) is sent to the registered owner. If you have received a PCN by post it will act as the NtO, as such the rules relating to the NtO will apply.
If you have received a PCN, payment can be made in one of the following ways:
Please make cheques or postal orders payable to NSL Limited and write the PCN number, vehicle registration number and your address on the reverse. Allow two working days for 1st class post and five for 2nd class. Do not send cash by post. Post dated cheques will not be accepted.
If you wish to challenge the issue of a PCN attached to the windscreen of a vehicle or handed to the driver you can make an informal challenge. However, if you wish to challenge the issue of a PCN served by post you must make a representation.
