Hello,

I was wondering if someone could advise exactly what the rules are regarding suspended parking warnings?

How much warning by law do they have to give before applying the suspension?

See attached.

Contrary to the stated date of 31-10-18, the attached notice went up on 01-12-18, with suspension taking effect from 4-12-18 till 06-12-18.

There is no legally defined period.
Many councils have policies where they undertake to place signs X days before and late placement may give rise to arguments on failing to follow their own policy.
But 3 days is not unusual nor would I think any adjudicator would overly criticise.


What I don't understand is the rather large and obvious 31/10/18
That is totally misleading.
Any motorist is likely to see that and immediately think it is an old notice, that any suspension happened on that date.


If this relates to a live PCN, let's see the beasty and location (both streetview link and as writ on the notice)

And your status i.e. are you a permit holder or up to 2 hours motorist?

Thanks for your reply.

Thankfully no PCN. I just saw the notice go up and was trying to understand if by law there was a minimum defined period/ advance notice, they have to give before applying the suspension.

Sounds like, based on your reply, its for local authorities to define their own policies.

Yup.
Most (all) traffic orders will have a clause allowing suspension at any time, sometimes with a list of reasons. Never seen one with a stipulated notice period which would be the only thing in law that could define.
Policies are a different matter and would normally include some get out like "emergency suspensions"

As certain as I can be that the notice shown would get any PCN cancelled because of that spurious date.
Trouble is with Newham, proving it would likely see vehicle removed, large payment at pound to get it back and then a drawn out challenge to council and appeal to adjudicator.
Easier to avoid the PCN.
