Topic: Contesting parking fines

I am currently contesting a parking ticket I was served by Ealing Council and would like some advice from anyone who has experience of dealing with such matters.

On receipt of the Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) I wrote to Ealing Council (EC). My argument was that on a previous occasion, having contested a PCN for parking in the exact spot, I was let off. Also a neighbour was let off having contested a PCN for parking in the same place.

Although they did not address my argument, EC have since written back and claim I am still at fault and need to pay the fine.

I have heard that the next step is to take the matter to 'New Zealand House', where hopefully I can resolve this dispute. Is this correct and how does one instigate this?

The wording on the last letter I received from EC is:
"If your payment is received within 14 days of the date of service we will accept 50 (otherwise 100). If the PCN is not paid within 28 days of the date of service of this letter, we will send a Notice to Owner (NTO) to registered keeper. The registered keeper can then make a formal representation against PCN".
