Registered keeper received a letter stating that penalty was given for "parking in a parking area reserved for patrons whilst on the premises only".

Driver and passenger drove to the BP garage. Driver escorted passenger to the bus stop behind the car park and waited a few minutes. Driver then went into the BP garage to buy some food and drink, and left in car. Paid in cash (no receipt).

Usually worth appealing. First o all post up the Notice to Keeper, with identifying details removed. Leave dates please. Location would be helpful, even a link to Google street View.

This sort of charge is usually defendable. Wher is the evidence, where is the definition of the premises? Driver was a patron. What did the signs say?

P.S. This is not a fine, it is a speculative invoice for breaching terms of the parking contract.

Will post the notice tonight. Here's the location:

Driver was parked next to the air and water machine. The "bus stop*" was where the larger tree was. Passenger was waiting by the larger tree. After passenger boarded, driver went into the shop to buy a chocolate bar and a drink, returned to vehicle and left by the closest exit.

I can't see any signs there! The contract is formed by the signs. No signs = No contract = No breach.

The signs are in the usual PCM format

Inconspicuous with tiny font and mounted ten feet up in the air on lamp-posts in a small section of the monitored area

Appeals are for the purpose of demonstrating reasonable behaviour in the event of a claim
Their chances that they will result in a cancelled parking notice are next to zero

There's one on the lamp post on the left hand side of the "meal deal" and "big value" signs but it is very high up.

If you use Streetview to look across from the other side of the filling station, you can see a couple more signs on lamp-posts
