Hello,

I just wanted to run this by you all before I pay up.

I have been staying at a property in Dagenham for 1 month whilst I am here for work. I have been parked in the exact same place for almost the entirety of the month and one day found my car and many others had been ticketed. This was clearly a shock to everyone ticketed as they had all been parking in this area for years with no problems.
There is no signage or painted lines anywhere regarding parking. I hadn't really realised the road/land was council owned but I suppose in hind sight it is pretty obvious. It's just with it being away from an actual road and behind gates it didn't give that feel.
I also parked how many others parked, with the thinking that I was keeping my car out of the way of the road if anyone needed to access it.

I have attached the PCN for you to look over, and a Google maps link to try and give you an insight into the area I parked.

Any help will be greatly appreciated,

Thanks in advance.

Looks like nonsense to me - I can't see how that garage area can be classed as Rainham Road South, which is the main road. It looks like an off street gated area :

Is there a way to officially check that the area isn't classed as Rainham Road South, other than it not showing as marked on Google maps or street signage?

Would me saying that the alleged contravention didn't occur as the area I was parked in doesn't have a street name and isn't on Rainham Road south be enough to get the fine dropped?

Thanks

Barking & Dagenham's own Trafficweb doesn't show that area as public highway

Same with traffic restrictions

I have tried to draught together a challenge to my PCN, I have the following so far, I'd appreciate any pointers you may have as it feels a little short right now, thanks all.


Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to you today to challenge the PCN I recently received.
I put it to you that the contravention did not occur as stated on the PCN as it was issued with the location of Rainham Road South.
The vehicle was parked on an unnamed area of land located off of Rainham Road South.
According to Barking & Dagenham's Trafficweb - showing Traffic Orders for London Borough of Barking & Dagenham (https://www.barking-dagenham-traffweb.co.uk/main.html) and (https://www.barking-dagenham-traffweb.co.uk...nsult/main.html) the area in question is not marked as public highway nor does it show any parking restrictions.
Therefore I propose that the PCN issued is invalid.
