What happens if I do not pay my FPN?

Paying the FPN gives you the chance to discharge liability for the offence. If you choose not to pay, you may be taken to court by Tunbridge Wells Borough Council.

Disagree with the fine?

If you disagree with the FPN, there is no formal right to appeal other than for ‘littering from vehicles’ or 'failure to comply with a household waste receptacles notice’.

If you feel you have a reason why we should cancel your fine, you can contact us within the payment period of receiving the notice. This is known as 'making a representation'.

What happens if you write to us?

When we receive a representation, we will put the FPN on hold while we review it.

If we agree with your statement, we will cancel the FPN and let you know we have done so.

If we disagree, we will let you know and you will have seven days to pay the FPN.
