I got back to Paddington today Monday from three days away, went to London Street around the side of the station and found that my bike had two tickets. There were very shiny clean and new looking triangular yellow signs around the lamposts saying that parking was suspended from Sat 19 to Sat 26 Oct. I am pretty sure these signs were not there when I left the bike on Fri. Could anyone help with a few questions?

1. Is there a statutory time period of advance notice for suspension?
2. Could the second ticket be unenforceable as continuous contravention?
3. Does anyone have experience of dealing with Westminster on issues such as these?
4. Should I pay within the 14 day limit and ask for a refund? Don't want it to double.

There were dozens of bikes in the same position, covered in tickets - two days after the suspension began the bay was still three quarters full. So lots of people have been caught out and Westminster are really raking it in! Can anyone help? Thanks, Owen

Post up the PCNs and the CEO photos. If the signs were put there after you parked, we should be able to get both PCNs cancelled, but we need to see what we're dealing with first.

Thanks - here is a scan of the PCNs. What are CEOs? If you mean the yellow suspension boards, I don't have pics. And of course I don't have proof that the boards were put up after I parked - I just know that I would have noticed if they had been there!

One other issue is that I'm going out of the country on Friday for six weeks. To avoid the danger of missing correspondence I'm minded to pay 2 x £65 then appeal for a refund. Any thoughts? Thanks, Owen

You pay or challenge, if you pay that's an admission of liability and there is no route of appeal.

CEOs are Civil Enforcement Officers, the photos are available from https://www.westminster.gov.uk/challenge-your-parking-ticket but for ease of reference I've put them here:

PCN 1:







PCN 2:







The sign was only printed on 17 October so it is possible they were put up on Friday after you parked. So, what time did you park? Also, did you pay for a whole day's parking on the Saturday? I note parking is only free on Sundays.
