If you don’t pay your Penalty Charge Notice

If a PCN remains unpaid, a warrant of control may be issued in the vehicle keeper's name under the authority of the Traffic Enforcement Centre at Northampton County Court.

This warrant will be passed to the Council's enforcement agents. They will contact the vehicle keeper to request payment. If payment is still not made they may instruct a certified enforcement agent to find another way to secure payment.

If you have a query

If you have a query about a PCN which has been passed to the council's enforcement agents, you can contact us or them directly and they can advise you further.
