Got this this morning. Parked in an uncontrolled area of London, e.g. no parking boxes on the road or any signs with timings.

Didn't even realise there was a dropped kerb there, no yellow lines or signage. Photos not yet on the councils website yet, and I appreciate my negligence and ignorance is probably not enough but seeking any advise on appealing this PCN if anyone else has done the same?

Need to see the Council photos: whilst you are waiting for them,
As usual, for best advice please post up here the other side of the PCN, and a GSV (Google Street View) link to the location.
Try this:
Do not attach docs/photos, but use this method:
Some are having problems with Tinypic at he moment.. try Flickr, where the BBcodes are concealed behind the curly arrow for sharing - clicking on the arrow reveals a list of BBCodes..

Photo or scan. see
for how to do it. I use Tinypic for stage 2 with no problems. Thera are other sites, such as Flickr, which enable you to paste the BBCodes into your post here.
STAGE 1 takes care of resizing. If you use Tinypic for Stage 2, on the left each image in Tinypic is a list of links. Highlight and copy the entire link 'for forums' from the list for each image - beginning with IMG and ending /IMG (include all the square brackets [ ] ), and paste each link into your post. Each copied and pasted link will embed a thumbnail link in your post.

Using the attachment method is not advised as it means quickly running out of attachment space.

Redact/obscure name, address, PCN number and reg.mark.
LEAVE IN all dates/times; precise location, Contravention code and description.

Parking next to dropped kerbs has been an offence in London since the 70s so it would seem you're not from London. HOwever the dropped kerb has to serve one of several purposes as define in law. If it doesn't the PCN is a nullity.

So...please do as JohnUK has suggested so we can assess this 'dropped kerb'.

Here's GSV - I can see a likely candidate that would not be a contravention:,-0....3312!8i6656

OP - where were you? Where are you?
