Parking Charge Notice (PCN)
TPS enforce the parking notices and have a clear and fair process for appeals which will be shown on your ticket. The college do not manage this process.
If you believe you have registered your car, you should go to Reception or Facilities to check that the registration number held by the college is correct. The college may be able to support your appeal to TPS if we believe the details have been entered incorrectly.
