    2 PCNs - 2 separate threads? 11th Sep 17 at 9:07 PM
    I hope this is in the right place.
    We received two postal NtKs last Thursday 7th September. Both out of the blue and both without screen tickets.

    One is from excel. Contravention date: 2/7/17 - issue date 31/8/17
    One is from Civil Enforcement (hospital). Contravention date 11/8/17 - issue date 4/9/17

    Both are beyond the 15 days for screen-only notices. Is there any point opening two separate threads or can both be appealed on a technical basis?

    Many thanks for all your help.

    If you need further advice from that in the newbies FAQ thread then each ticket requires its own thread otherwise it would be confusing

    The FAQ thread advises on how to appeal and what wording to use in initial appeals

    2 different companies who will deal with their PCNs quite differently and advice will be quite different for each. Excel is an IPC AOS operator, CEL a BPA equivalent. Different appeal tactics for each.

    Both are beyond the 15 days for screen-only notices.
    Screen only notices have 56 days, ANPR (postal only) notices have 15 days.

    Have a good read of the NEWBIES FAQ sticky to get an understanding first of all, then open a new thread for each, let this one drift away down the forum by not responding further to it.
    We cannot provide you with a silver bullet to get you out of this. You have to be in for the long run, and need to involve yourself in research and work for you to get rid of this. It is not simple. We will help, but can't do it for you.
