Have a read of the thread I linked to above

cp.
Did you submit an FOI re this to Newham? What was their response, if so, and what did you think of it?

Well that's just weird; a slow motion YB suicide.
Why on Earth would you do that for no purpose?
But wait to see what others think.

@cp8759 and others.
While accessing vid, this disgraceful, inaccurate and misleading text appears alongside >

"Box junctions are aimed at preventing congestion at busy junctions. Section 174 of the Highway Code states that box junctions: “… have criss-cross yellow lines painted on the road. You MUST NOT enter the box until your exit road or lane is clear. However, you may enter the box and wait when you want to turn right, and are only stopped from doing so by oncoming traffic, or by other vehicles waiting to turn right. A PCN is issued if a motorist has entered a box junction and these conditions are not met."

I don't get this: Seems some over-hopeful nonsense in this thread.

You parked on two indicated restrictions but didn't bother checking the times of those restrictions.
Someone probably removed the PCN for a laugh.

I'd simply be holding my hands up to the 'mistake' (mention your ludicrous 1.30pm if you like cos making them laugh
might actually help) and stating the PCN was not found on the vehicle at the time. You would very much like the
opportunity to settle the matter at the discount amount.

At least two others have already said similar.

By law the TRO is a publicly available document, but only if you actually go to the council offices and ask for see it (which isn't an option if you're not local). Can't see any downside in contacting Mr Ali, though he may not respond if you don't live in his ward.

FOI requests should not generally be used for TROs as they take far too long, but in this case I would send off a FOI request anyway because even if all else fails, they can't ignore a FOI request and if nothing you're almost certain to get it within the 20 working day time limit. Just ask for the Traffic Management Order governing parking in Park Road, E15.

+1 but in parallel; ask Mr Ali for it directly as well.

Re the Order.

The Councillor with Transport portfolio is currently unavailable.
If local, identify and contact your local Councillor and ask them to get it for you.

By coincidence, it's a a Councillor for Plaistow North that's covering transport matters.

The Order governing parking places on Park Rd, particularly that outside number -whatever it is.

And yes, if you get it, post it here as you'll potentially help others as well.

I'm thinking on how to phrase it.

Orders should be freely available; sometimes library or they might e-mail you the relevant one.
Ask via main switchboard.

As in the other thread, it's worth challenging because, while the meaning of the sign is clear,
the wording of the relevant Traffic Order may say something different.

They've got the wording right for extensions East and West to the zone but I haven't found anything
relevant for Park Rd yet.

Neil,

We attended the tribunal in person to put our case across and the adjudicator told us in the appeal that the PCN stands and the charge would still have to be paid.

and will have told you that you had 28 days to do so, as would the subsequent letter from LT.

On the 4 months; can't see anything wrong other than Council sloppiness.

Others might see it differently.

So it's £55 they are asking?
QUOTE (ls2610 @ Sat, 15 Dec 2018 - 17:04) *
The appeal case date was back on 05/07/18 and the charge of £110.00 was paid on 10/08/18. We assumed this was the end of this issue.

Paid 5 days late?

At the risk of a rocket from hca, there is nothing in the Gazette which amends the original notice for Cranmer Street or that parking zone.

I concur. Yet there are plenty of other amendments generally.
I don't think they've got around to it.

But I've emphasised to OP the need to post the PCN to keep everyone sweet.

Neil,

Yes, but we are after the amendment which may or may not be covered by Reg 20. Notwithstanding that, the Council seems to have carte blanche with Notices of Variation (Reg 25) where publication in the Gazette does not apply.

OP----which road are we dealing with?

Mick

Cranmer.
I posted the GSV

However if there has been a change, the Council is obliged to publish details in the local press prior to any amendment.

Mick, is a Gazette notice not required by s17(b) of LATOR ? Or only when made under a different section of RTRA ?

CP, Given the above, do you still think it would be helpful for me to post the PCN?

Yes; he has a point to make.

As it stands the OP is bang to rights unless (and it would be difficult to argue) a legitimate expectation of parking there can be established.

I've got the answer -- but busy at mo. Later today.

This is the GSV from the start of the street.
Show us exactly where?

The bay on the right is 20 min type and probably that referred to in the original Gazette notice (and, presumably the Order)
but you've referred to a single space bay?

The notices for new 20 min bays are in those concerning car club bays as well.
I can see them for other zones but not Forest Gate North.

Lots more info on this but busy at mo.
It's quieter on here weekends B.

There's a wording flaw somewhere - can't remember.

It's complicated by being a statement on a non-statutory rejection, i.e. you have no right of informal challenge under
the farcical 1996/2000 legislation and neither do they have to respond. So does it count?

The council don't have to respond, but surely if they choose to respond their response must be accurate?

Would be part of the potential argument, yes Rob, but whether an adjudicator embraces it is another matter.
Ditto if they'd invited informal challenges in the first place.

It might be a lever to secure an adjudicators acceptance of OP's prime case of mitigation, which is, so far, hard
to prove.

How did you know he was from Pakistan, given that Kabul is the capital of Afghanistan?

Because I couldn't be bothered to look up the capital of Pakistan.

Is as far as I got in this thread and your credibility (working in the NHS FFS !?) just left the building.

Nothing wrong with the letter it explains what will happen and when correctly.
This part seems off...

"If you do not pay the outstanding Penalty Charge amount, or make a formal representation within 28 days from the date of issue of the Penalty Charge Notice, and Enforcement Notice may be issued"

This means I cannot make a formal representation because (1) I received the rejection letter (for the informal representation) outside of the 28 days and (2) have not received the Enforcement Notice yet. The language isn't clear.

I initially dismissed your idea, having not read properly but now that you've flagged the sentence, actually, you're right and I see that
it then goes on to contradict itself by giving you the correct info. Yes, potentially confusing.

Whether it would fly is another matter.

It's complicated by being a statement on a non-statutory rejection, i.e. you have no right of informal challenge under

Did the PCN invite challenges?
