What is the process?
The first stage is the challenge (informal appeal). You should write to the council explaining within 14 days why you object to the ticket and giving reasons for this. You can use peNOty to craft your letter.
If the council rejects your challenge, the registered keeper of the vehicle will receive a Notice to Owner (NTO). The second stage is making formal representations within 28 days after the NTO is served. This must be based on specific grounds, such as a procedural impropriety. peNOty is designed for drafting representations.
If your formal representations are rejected, you can appeal to the Traffic Penalty Tribunal within 28 days after the Notice of Rejection is served.
