If the penalty charge is not paid or challenged
If the Penalty charge is not paid on or before the end of the 28-day period as specified on the front of the notice, or successfully challenged, the council may serve a Notice to Owner (NTO) on the owner of the vehicle requiring payment of the Penalty Charge. The owner can then make representations to the council and may appeal to the Traffic Penalty Tribunal if those representations are rejected. The NTO will contain instructions for doing this. If you challenge the PCN but the council issues an NTO, the owner must follow the instructions on the NTO.
