Hi to all.
A week ago the driver parked the car in a narrow disabled bay.
On return they found a windscreen ticket for ' not parked correctly within the bay or space'.

There are no hatched areas to the sides to allow for doors opening.
The bay concerned is next to metal corrugated low barrier-type fencing, with 2 larger disabled bays to the right.
To the rear the clearance of that bay is restricted by a barrier running across at a severe angle.
This restricts the swing a driver can get on the car to park within the lines.
Nevertheless, the driver - disabled - had to park with the inside of their tyres on the outside edge of the yellow line.
Having parked there before, the driver knew there was not enough room to open the passenger door fully to get the disabled passenger out otherwise.

The driver took photographs, one showing the disabled passenger in the next bay having her car door fully open as she got into the car with room to spare.
Checking the UKPC site today there are no photographs 7 days after the event.

Are there grounds for appeal or is it open and shut?

I went to the shopping centre manager's office but he was on holiday.
I intend contacting him again when he is back.

Many thanks,
Tom

Seems like the 'reasonable adjustments' (Equality Act) weren't reasonable enough...

The best method is to pursue the shopping centre indeed as parking companies don't like to cancel tickets as their income depends upon it.
