I received a PCN for a u turn which was alleged to have happened on January 11th 2023. However the date of issue of the PCN was not until 28th of February 2023 and I only got it today.

Can I appeal as it wasn't within 28 days of issue? It is a council issued one and not endorsement offence simple fine.

    As we major on private parking tickets here, PePiPoo will be your best bet for council tickets. Register there but please note that a Hotmail address won't work - try using a throwaway Gmail account instead if you do have trouble registering, and post a new thread; here's your link:

    Read the sticky 'Read this before you post' as well as reading through some of the other threads there ahead of posting your own details, to get the hang of what information they need from you in your opening post - but as a minimum you will need to post redacted photos/scans of all correspondence you've received from the council (both sides, if appropriate), as they need to see all the small print.
    Please note, we are not a legal advice forum. I personally don't get involved in critiquing court case Defences/Witness Statements, so unable to help on that front. Please don't ask. .
    I provide only my personal opinion, it is not a legal opinion, it is simply a personal one. I am not a lawyer.

    This forum mainly deals with Private Parking Companies. Your best bet to deal with Penalty Charge Notices issued by police or Local Authorities is on the Pepipoo forum:

    Good grammar adds tone and nuance to the "written" word which is normally perceived in the "spoken" word. Without good grammar, you can be perceived to be an idiot or a fool without ever uttering a sound.
