Hi all,
I received the following Notice to Owner for my car being parked in a lay-by on Nightingale Lane.
The lay-by is clearly marked as a residents' parking bay - see the GSV pics below.
We have a valid residents' permit.
There are zigzags but on the edge of the lay-by closest to the carriageway - NB they are in the lay-by not on the carriageway.
The car is parked between the edge of the pavement and the zigzags.
Is it a parking bay or do the zigzags apply?

Finally, the PCN says the contravention happened in a different postcode to where the photo was taken. Is this important? The postcodes are in fact adjacent

Grateful for any advice and best route for appeal -

I think the zig has lost its zag so IMO the road marking in the bay is defective.

I think (others please confirm) that Diagram 1001.4 applies.

http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2016/362/schedule/14/made

The remarks in column 4 indicate (my bold):-

4. Where the traffic authority is satisfied that the layout or character of the road means it is not practical to lay 8 marks, the number of marks can be reduced to not less than 2

@DancingDad
Thanks for your response.
The Multiple PCNs are where tickets have been issued on multiple days when the car has not moved - the council photos actually show the previous days' tickets on the windscreen. Interestingly the officer issuing the ticket has included a picture of the resident's parking restriction sign in some of the photos which suggests there is a real lack of clarity.

This has happened on 3 separate occasions. The person who parked there assumed they were to do with not having a residents' permit as they were in discussions with the council about that - paid for 12 month's permit in October, followed up with phone calls and emails and eventually permit issued in January and the council agreed to revoke tickets issued regarding the permit.

I will wait to hear if there is anything in the TMO before challenging the NTO.

Be careful about waiting. Missing the deadline while waiting for the TMO is no a legitimate reason for being late.

You could at the authority 'quote, harangue and paragraph and with speeches charm the ear' and it would still go over their heads.

They have a mindset.

You challenge their thinking just as much by getting them to consult the TMO.

What you assert can only be countered by them producing a copy of the TMO showing that the location is not a designated parking place. Let them do the work.

You have until 7 Feb. to submit reps, but the 28th day is not a target, it's a limit.

Right diagram.
Two lines at different angles to each other so IMO minimum applies.
But agree that as the first is more or less parallel to the true line of the carriageway it is arguable that it is not a Zig (or zag) and just a spurious white line.
The whole set up is a right pig's ear.
I'm not convinced that we can convince an adjudicator that it is wrong but there is mileage in the confusion.


@Bernie.
The multiples.
Get them together and check both contraventions and dates.
List them all out along with cited contravention, date and whether or not vehicle was moved between first and last of each group.
This situation seems to have been ongoing for some time and that the council seems to have put on hold pending the permit situation lends credence to the challenge on confusion.
It would suggest that they are as confused as the driver was.
And if even one of the PCNs is for not displaying permit, that would really seal the argument.

BernieF I've made progress on the TMO side, see here:

Order: http://bit.ly/2MvRsyN
Map: http://bit.ly/2ROleot

The crossing in question doesn't feature on the map at all, so on the face of it we have a conflict between the crossing zig-zags, which are a section 36 sign, and a TMO which says there's an authorised parking space at the same location. I have queried this with the council and will post when I get any further information.

However in the first instance, show us the PCNs, front side of all of them + the rear of at least 1.

Hi cp8759,

Thanks for the information about the TMO. I assumed there was no order for the crossing as I could find no reference to it in the Gazette nor to changes to the original parking bay.

I won't post all of the PCNs as I have already submitted an appeal.
Here is a summary of the PCNs including two for code 12 which I hope will be cancelled as the relevant permit had been paid for, approved but not received (now received with expiry in November 2019).
I have grouped them into what I believe are consecutive tickets and have used both of adjudicator Teper's arguments in my appeal. The Y/N at the end indicates which PCNs included a picture of the resident's parking sign in the photographic evidence.

Issued Date Issued Time Amount Contravention Street Pic of sign?
29/11/2018 10:08:52 £110.00 99 NIGHTINGALE LANE, SW12 (H1) N

Thanks again for your help and hard work.

An appeal or a representation? In any event, neither prevents you from showing us the paperwork. Show us the front of a code 99 PCN, and a code 12 PCN, + the rear

A zebra crossing doesn't need a TMO as it's a section 36 sign, however there shouldn't be a designated parking place at the same location.

TMO: http://bit.ly/2SrZnmY
TMO map: http://bit.ly/2RTApHX
Plans for zebra crossing: http://bit.ly/2DuZyUn

The council have confirmed as follows:

I can confirm that the Traffic Management Order provided to you previously is the most up to date order relating to the parking places on this part of Nightingale Lane. With regard to the raised zebra crossing I can advise that this was constructed in late 2012/early 2013 as part of a scheme to improve traffic management and road safety in Nightingale Lane and a number of adjacent side roads. I have attached a copy of the drawing showing the revised layout.

It therefore appears they have installed the zig-zags inside a designated parking space (because the TMO was never amended)
