Lincoln Xmas Market parking ticket row

Car owners who received parking tickets during this year's Lincoln Christmas Market are being invited to appeal them. Parking enforcement officers handed out 389 tickets over the four days of the Christmas Market.

But following a consultation between Lincolnshire County Council, who hired the officers, and the City of Lincoln Council, who were in charge of road closures and resident permits, a decision has been made to look at all the tickets handed out in this area to residents .

The two councils are now working with the parking contractor to find out why tickets were given out to people who were parked legitimately. To appeal a parking ticket go to and click on Pay or challenge your PCN online at the bottom of the page,
