Hello everyone, looking for a bit of advice please...

Parking charge notice issued by PEA on 13th May, in Queensway, London, W2, based on parking for 15 mins without paying.

Sent as NTK to my employer 16th May.

Employer gives me opportunity to challenge, so I appeal, as driver (I now realise that may not have been particularly wise!)

The appeal basis was that I was unloading, and provided copies of the delivery notes (electronic and paper), both signed and timed.

The appeal is rejected because I was "parking", and I am given 14 days to pay, or 28 days to appeal to POPLA (from 10th June)

I subsequently went back and photographed one of the payment signs.

It includes the words "By entering, parking, waiting or otherwise remaining within these private premises you agree to the following terms and conditions. Please do not park here unless you agree to the following terms and conditions in full."

Nowhere on the signage does it say anything about loading.

Additionally, having read through the BPA Code of Practice (2018 version), it makes no mention to loading, however, I did notice one thing. It specifies that notices at the entrance to the area should be placed in such a way that you should not have to take your eyes off the road to read them. The sign at the entrance to this area (effectively a cul-de-sac off the main road) is placed in such a way that it faces the shops on the opposite side of the main road.

I would welcome thoughts on whether I should appeal to POPLA, and if so, what grounds.

Thanks!

Thanks for the info.

If I get the gist right, I should appeal on the basis that I was unloading for a contractor working on behalf of a tenant, and had therefore been invited onto the premises.
