Non-payment of a Penalty Charge Notice

If full payment  is not received within 28 days of issue, the registered keeper or the person that the Council believes to be the owner of the vehicle will be sent a Notice to Owner.  At this stage, the registered owner/keeper of the vehicle can make a payment or submit a formal representation objecting to the issue of the Penalty Charge Notice.  Vehicle keeper information will be requested from the DVLA.

In the event that the formal representation is rejected, the registered owner/keeper can submit an appeal to the Traffic Penalty Tribunal.  They are an independent body and will consider the registered owner/keeper's comments and those offered by Wychavon District Council.  A final decision will be reached. For further information view the Traffic Penalty Tribunal.

If no payment is received within 28 days of the date of service of the Notice to Owner, a Charge Certificate will be issued and the outstanding amount is increased by 50%.

Continued non payment will result in the debt being registered at the County Court and an Order for Recovery will be sent to the motorist.  At this stage, the outstanding amount has increased by £7.00 and a period of 21 days is allowed for payment or for a witness statement to be submitted.

Failure to pay the outstanding amount will result in the outstanding amount being referred to a bailiff to recover the monies.
