F/on from FOI-0814
5. What is the total number of appeals against bus lane PCNs in 2018 and 2019? (please give data separately, broken down by calendar year)
In order to challenge a penalty the recipient must first submit a representation to us. If the representation is accepted the penalty is cancelled. If we reject the representation the motorist has a further right of appeal to an Independent Adjudicator at London Tribunals.
Over 2018 and 2019 we have received 6,915 representations against the PCNs issued. Of these 725 have been rejected, 4,105 have been accepted and 2,085 are awaiting a decision. Of the 725 representations which were rejected 121 appeals have been made to London Tribunals. Of these 9 were allowed, 56 were refused, 3 were withdrawn by the appellant, 49 were non contested by TfL and 4 are awaiting a decision.
RE question 5 – are you able to break down the 6,915 representations received across 2018 and 2019 separately, i.e. how many were received in each year?
