Hello again, and Happy New Year to you all.

Returned home from family to find a predicted rejection through the letterbox!

I don't have the response I sent, I can retrieve it tomorrow morning, but from memory I said that I parked on the bay on the 15th of November, when there were no signs, and therefore no contravention could have occurred.





Any further assistance appreciated.

You do not have to check the bay every day that as otherwise how could you go on holiday or travel on business?

see The Queen on the application of Humphreys v PATAS, [2015] EWHC 713 (Admin) from 18 Feb 15.


This does seem very pertinent! Thanks so much for tracking it down.

So after reading (and re-reading!) this, it seems like there is no legal obligation for me to check the bays for suspensions, however it does seem a little fuzzy when the driver's counsel says "It makes an analogy with a resident's bay permit, which is not the case here at all" - I'm unsure quite where it leaves me, would you be able to offer any clarification?

Finally, should I put this in my first response, or hold it back for later correspondence?

Have you got a picture of the Suspended Bay signs? They should look like this. If they don't then they have no effect.

(Sadly their site is not serving images again, so I can't check. Thanks for the reference though. I'll verify it as soon as possible.)

EDIT

I have it! It looks pretty similar, though not exactly the same.

Challenge on the basis that there was no signs in place when you parked, co no contravention could have occurred.If they reject your challenge require them to provide you with the TMO that created the suspension, and the logs showing when the suspension signs were put in place and where they ere placed

This at the least will buy more time as they will re-offer the discount if they reject


On it. Thanks for the advice.

Hello everyone.

We have a resident's permit, and parked round the corner from our flat (residents' spaces outside are always taken by police vehicles, a story for another time) in a resident's bay.
We left the car on the 15th November (no signs in evidence), and were issued the ticket on the 24th.

PCN here:



Unfortunately, the lambeth website is not serving images right now (tried multiple browsers on multiple computers) so I can't yet share those.

I've checked the Lambeth Residents Permits Ts&Cs and they say this:
QUOTE
Suspensions - from time to time it may be necessary to suspend a parking bay, this is normally due to road works being carried out by the utility companies, such as gas or electricity. During the period for which the bay is suspended, parking is not permitted in the bay. Even if a valid permit is displayed a PCN will still be issued and the vehicle may be towed away.

It is the permit holder's responsibility to ensure that the bay in which their vehicle is parked is not suspended during the time their vehicle is there.


What's the best approach to take for this?

Thanks all

I received 2 parking tickets from Leeds council, and appealed them both by email.

I received 2 email confirmations over the next 24 hours for each appeal, one an acknowledgement of an email, and a subsequent email acknowledging my appeal. This makes 4 total.

I then received 1 rejection email, 10 days later and paid this at the reduced rate.

I received nothing more on the second appeal, until a letter arrived at the registered keeper's address (my girlfriend's parents house(!))

I rang up the council to complain, and they said that they did contact me by email regarding this appeal. I've received nothing, and have checked gmail's spam filter, as well as everything from Leeds, and everything on the date they said they responded to me, *and* deleted emails, and got nothing.

So... do I have any recourse? Any recommended next steps?

Thanks all

Thanks both of you.

To clear something up, Ostell, MET contacted the lease company, who in turn sent the letter to my employer, and as yet, I haven't received notification from MET.

They want me to pay, as they just want it sorted, and £60/£100 isn't a big deal to them I guess.

I've got work to write a letter to MET (headed paper, and work know something is happening) and when I personally receive the invoice from MET, I'll follow up with POPLA.

Thanks both of you for the reassurance.

At least there's time now to read up on the POPLA process and letters!

I received the below letter at work yesterday for my company car.

This is at my gym car park, where I had apparently outstayed my 2.5 hours free welcome.



The glitches (but not the black boxes) are present on the original letter.
This was a cctv monitored park, here are the details from the metreview website



I've fuzzed out the details above.

Work are wanting me to pay the ticket.

I'm just getting up to speed on here; so if somebody could confirm if I'm in line with current thinking, I'd appreciate it hugely.

Am I right in thinking that I should have myself named to remove them from the pending round of letters?

Then head to POPLA?

Or would I be better just heading straight to POPLA?


Thanks all. Much appreciated.
