Parking fines and appeals
Who issued your parking fine?
First check who your fine was issued by. If the Fixed Penalty Charge Number starts with NB go to Nuneaton and Bedworth; if it starts with ZQ go to Warwickshire County Council - DO NOT PAY YOUR FINE OR APPEAL HERE IF YOUR FINE NUMBER STARTS WITH NB or ZQ.
Our Fixed Penalty Charge Number starts with NW0 - Fixed Penalty Charge Notices that do not begin NW0 have not been issued from North Warwickshire and you will still have to pay the issuing Authority.
Payments to North Warwickshire Borough Council, as set out in the Fixed Penalty Charge Notice, are:
- Within 7 days - £25.00
- After 7 days - £50.00
Appeal or dispute a parking fine
