If your parking fine reference number starts with the letters:

When we will not cancel a fine

  • if the driver parks in a car park without displaying a valid ticket or permit
  • if the driver uses the pay and display machine or or the Connect cashless service incorrectly
  • if the driver has not read or misreads the signs regarding the parking regulations or has failed to display a valid ticket for the free parking period
  • if a driver obtains a further ticket without having left the car park for the required no return period
  • if the vehicle is parked not wholly within a marked bay
  • if the driver is delayed for reasons beyond their control but more time should have allowed more time when initially obtaining their ticket eg: attending an interview or a meeting
  • if taken ill you are unable to provide medical evidence from a doctor or other medical professional
  • if you are a disabled badge holder whose badge is out of date or you have already had a fine cancelled for non display of your badge in the previous calendar year.
