Hey all

I Parked on a road, about 3 minutes from my home, that has no parking restrictions. I was parked there a little over a week before I came back to use the car. When I returned, my car was nowhere to be seen although i did notice that the road had been resurfaced. I called the council and was informed the car had been towed. When I went to collect the car I was informed by a member of staff that the car had been relocated in order for the road resurfacing to be completed. Unfortunately it was relocated to parking permitted zone and the car was subsequently ticketed a number of times before being towed.

I have been doing my own research but any help and information regarding the best way to challenge this would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

Hi nari,

I have a feeling you're going to get some good news (or already have) regarding this story.
A link to this saga may or may not have been sent to the desk of the right person at the council.


Been checking emails daily but nothing yet. In case nothing comes of that, Ill put through challenges for the 12 s bay PCNs and will request refunds for what I've already paid.

Although with the first PCN (01/08) I'm not quite sure how to prove that there was no signage indicating there was going to be a temporary parking ban at the time of my parking.

Thanks

OP----Ask the Council when the TTRO Notices were posted on that street--probably the Highways Department.

Just wanted to post a final update, for anyone who'd be interested, and say thanks to everyone on this great forum who gave their time, help, knowledge, etc.

So as "ohnoes" predicted, all outstanding PCN cases were closed, although they didn't actually inform us I ended up finding out on their website when I went online to challenge.

After this I emailed the wfpcn email address and asked for a refund of the car removal fee and the associated PCN.

Today we opened a letter, and voila, there was a check inside!

Don't know what I would have done without this forum, would have been a lot more stressed that's for sure!

Thanks again everyone!

Well done OP for your persistence.

Pity it didn't get to adjudication because IMO costs would have been awarded to you.

Make sure the 1st PCN has been cancelled too.

Thank you for posting the update as it is always nice to know how a case was resolved.

By knowing who was successful and who was not helps us in the future to advise others in the same situation.
