Parking Charge Notice for 5 min wait in loading bay in Bristol successfully fought on grace period grounds, though signage is arguably illegal for parking enforcement as no offer is made.

POPLA avoided ruling on that issue. Thanks for all who supported this fight!

Case won over car parked on yellow hatched lines on college car park.

Claim Dismissed because of:
- no evidence of signage
- inconsistent penalty charges

I received £50 under CPR27.14(g) for a missed day at work.

See thread where I received much help:;#entry1275133

PARKING EYE - overstay in Rheidol Retail Park, Aberystwyth.

2h17 stay in free-for-2hrs car park, without facility to pay for longer.

Appeal to PE rejected; took it to POPLA 26/07 on grounds that (1) Parking Eye provided no contractual evidence of their authority to issue PCNs (contract never been seen for the site, although POPLA recently accepted post-dated witness statement; I reqd the former); (2) Grace period of 15 mins at end (BPA Code of Practice) should logically include similar period at start, since more operations to complete, and ANPR records time of entering and leaving car park with notorious bottleneck on exit, not time parked; (3) misleading signage - some from another operator, references to closing at night while shops still open, and ref to machines and parent-and-toddler bays absent from this site; (4) failure to consider my representations.

Email today from POPLA:
Parking Eye Ltd have told us they do not wish to contest the Appeal. This means that your Appeal is successful and you do not need to pay the parking charge.

See full summary here.

Won bus lane contravention against Merton Council who said:
We note your comments and have reviewed your case. The signs at this location are not considered correctly lit and therefore the council will not be proceeding with this case and the charge has been cancelled.
On behalf of Merton Council, I apologise for any inconvenience that may have been caused by issuing this PCN.

'Im not sure about where this post is going but it is meant for Successful outcomes section.

I am disabled and had a medical emergency meaning that I had to stop my car and park somewhere safe asap. I was on double yellows but managed to put my Blue card on the dashboard.
VCS felt fit to fine me and I promptly appealed explaining, graphically why I had to stop. I was basically told 'tough pay the fine'. I appealed again thinking that they had not understood the urgency and explained my dilemma but even more graphically this time. Again, I was told to pay up or else. With the group's help I wrote to the Debt management team quoting my rights and certain 'Acts' and copied the Chief Director of Doncaster and Robin Hood Airport in.
Three days later I received a letter of apology.

I certainly could not have done this by myself as I did not realize my rights in this area and I have certain members of the group to thank for that. Indeed, I did not even know of the existence of this group until my colleague advised me.

Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart xx

Parking Eye ANPR charge withdrawn following appeal submitted to POPLA.

Unfortunately due to work and family commitments I didn't have time to put my appeal together until the 11th hour, so I didn't get to share my appeal for review on the forum. Thankfully however, I was able to make use of a lot of resources and feedback from other appeals on this forum and MSE forum that enabled my to build a comprehensive appeal.

PE chose not to contest my appeal to POPLA, and withdrew the charge.

Thread link:

I've also attached a pdf copy of the appeal I submitted to POPLA to this post in the hope that it can be of use to others with similar PCNs.
