I was unable to park on my road due to the lack of spaces caused by the road works. Believing that a neighbouring road was within my parking zone, I left my vehicle there on a Sunday evening.
I generally leave the house very early and return quite late for work and there were no spaces on my road available, due to the road works and multiple suspended bays. I only discovered the 3 parking tickets upon returning to my car on the Wednesday evening.

The 2nd tickets was issued issued within 24 hours of the previous one, which as far as I know is illegal and I have also been told that councils are unable to issue more than one ticket for the same offence but I am not sure of the latter.

After pointing this out to the council, as well as the road words which have caused hell on my road for the last 2 months, they have refused to cancel any of the tickets.

Essentially I received 3 PCN tickets without moving my car.

Are you able to suggest what my next best course of action is please?

Thanks for any help.

Daniel

You could argue they have failed to consider PCN 1 properly because they have not stated why they're not willing to exercise discretion


An authority is not required to do so for informal challenges.

In fact, they are not required to respond at all.

They are required to consider, you know the regs. They are not required to respond, but if they do not covering any one point can be construed as failing to consider, and has been on many occasions

Hi All,

I have managed to get all 3 tickets cancelled, so thank you very much for your help!

I emailed my local councellor with the complaint and he managed to speak to the Parking guys and this is what they sent back:

Thank you for your query received on 22 April 2018, on behalf of Mr * and in relation to Penalty Charge Notices (PCN) BT81830725, BT8183077A and BT81830929.

We have reviewed the PCN's and although instruction was sent to our contractor, Serco, to relax enforcement during the gas works, this was not followed.

I have arranged for all three PCN's to be cancelled and a letter to be sent to Mr * advising him of this. We will of course apologise for any inconvenience this has caused him.


Really appreciate all your comments
