10.8 When the Notice to Owner is issued as detailed in paragraph 9.5, the vehicle owner will be provided with information on the statutory grounds for appeal. As with informal challenges, formal representations must be in writing. The statutory grounds to appeal are detailed under 11.1 and in National Guidance.
More details on these grounds for appeal or representation are given in the next section together with supporting evidence that would be appropriate to the case. Furthermore, the list contains advice on a further area for appeal; mitigating circumstances. As stated above, it is recognised that each case is different and situations occur that are beyond the control of the motorist and in which cases it would be unreasonable to pursue the Penalty Charge Notice. This cannot be an exhaustive list but it does offer guidance on likely scenarios that would warrant cancellation of the Penalty Charge Notice.
