The driver parked the car in the car park at their place of employment. They put their permit on the dashboard as usual.

When they returned to their car, they had a ticket for non-display of a valid permit, and the permit had slid down the dashboard and so was below the black frame on the windshield glass and so not visible.

The same situation had occurred previously to other employees, including the MD, who said he complained to the parking management company that his business had a lease on the building that costs his company a considerable sum, and the lease includes parking spaces and does not mention any need for displaying permits. He said to use this as an appeal and he will be able to provide the lease if needed.

A redacted copy of the ticket is attached.

Any comments on the above approach?
Additionally, the permit is just effectively a business card and has no way of being affixed, which caused it to slip on the dashboard. Does this inadequacy of the permit (provided by UKPC) have any value in being added to the appeal, or just concentrate on the lease?

Any other thoughts or advice appreciated.

Yes use the lease an an appeal, the fact that the lease does not require that permits etc are displayed, nor a penalty for not displaying.

A picture of the signs would help,

Plan for this is that you appeal AS THE KEEPER so that the appeal is received on day 26 after the parking event. UKPC may be happy to save £2.50 and not contact the DVLA for the keeper's details. Use a slightly modified version of the name and address that is on the V5 so that you will know, when they respond, if they have contacted the DVLA. They may fail to send a Notice to keeper before the time limit of day 56 or send a Notice to Keeper without contacting the DVLA. Both are a fail and they then cannot hold the keeper liable and as hey do not know the driver at the time then they are up that proverbial creek.

The appeal of course is that there is no requirement for a permit in the lease and they do not have a contract with the leaseholder. Perhaps the signs aren't obvious as well. Can you get the relevant bits of the boss's lease.
