Hello again.

It has been a long time since I've had to post on here regarding a private parking ticket. I have done some reading "Post Beavis" and my understanding is that the goalposts have moved significantly, but many of the original defence points still stand.

The keeper of the vehicle in question received two "parking charge notices" for parking in what appears to be a controlled parking area, adjacent to a hospital, but what seems to be private parking for a care home.

There was no clear entry signage, and the signage which was there on closer inspection was lying on the floor and almost impossible to be seen at both times the "charge" was issued. In my opinion the photographs don't prove that any alleged contravention of the terms has occurred, even if the signage was indeed compliant. I'll let the photographs below speak for themselves.

I have drafted an appeal which is the following:

Dear LDK,

As registered keeper I am appealing both your parking charge notices on the basis of the following:

1. No clear entry signage, and the signage which is present was found to be lying on the floor completely obscured and unlit

2. Photographs on one parking charge show complete darkness- the contravention has not occurred

3. Photographs on the other parking charge notice show the vehicle in question, but not that it was even parked in the area which you claim to be operating in

Therefore both parking charge notices are invalid and should be dismissed

Yours sincerely,

Thanks a lot for your help.
