Letter to challenge a parking ticket: parking on private land - you think the ticket is unfair


You can use this letter to challenge a ticket you've been given for parking on private land. It covers situations where you think it was wrong or unfair to issue a ticket, for example because you didn't break the car park's rules, the rules weren't clear, or the parking charge is excessive.

This letter is to be used for parking tickets issued for parking on private land, for example at a supermarket, shopping centre or hospital car park. It does not cover parking tickets issued by the police or a local authority for parking on public land. For more information about when to use this letter, see Parking tickets on private land.

It is important to include as much evidence as you can. This could include a photo of your car parked according to the rules, a photo of an unclear sign, a copy of your ticket or other relevant paperwork.
