Disputes

There is no formal process for Fixed Penalty Notices – if you disagree that you have committed an offence, you can decide not to pay the Fixed Penalty Fine, and the matter will then be decided by a Court.

However, this can be expensive and time-consuming for both parties, and Rhondda Cynon Taf CBC has an internal process that can help resolve disputes before they get to Court.
