(b)the person against whom it is made makes a witness statement complying with paragraph (2); and

(c)that statement is served on the county court which made the order, before the end of—

(i)the period of 21 days beginning with the date on which notice of the county court’s order is served on him; or

(ii)such longer period as may be allowed under paragraph (4).

(2) The witness statement must state one and only one of the following—

(iii)the appeal was determined in his favour; or

(d)that he has paid the penalty charge to which the charge certificate relates.

(3) Paragraph (4) applies where it appears to a district judge, on the application of a person on whom a charge certificate has been served, that it would be unreasonable in the circumstances of his case to insist on his serving his witness statement within the period of 21 days allowed for by paragraph (1).

(d)the district judge shall serve written notice of the effect of service of the statement on the person making it and on the enforcement authority concerned.

(6) Subject to regulation 12, service of a witness statement under paragraph (2)(a) shall not prevent the enforcement authority from serving a fresh notice to owner.

(7) Where a witness statement has been served under paragraph (2)(b), (c) or (d), the enforcement authority shall refer the case to the adjudicator who may give such directions as he considers appropriate and the parties shall comply with those directions.

(8) A witness statement under this regulation may be served on the county court by email in accordance with Section I of Practice Direction 5B supplementing Part 5 of the Civil Procedure Rules 1998(1).
