Hi, I have received a PCN in relation to contravention 52J at Phoenix Way (Services). I entered here as I was staying at the Travelodge and the alternative way added an hour to my journey, which had already taken 3 hours with 3 young kids.

Can you please advise how I can appeal. I am still with in the 28 day period but have passed the 14 day discount period as I was away for the last 2 weeks, so just returned home.

Thanks in advance.

This is a reasonably straightforward location to win at, because the Traffic Management Order that creates the restriction is flawed. However in the first instance post up the PCN (all sides of all pages) and the video, so we can take a look. Use an external site like imgur.com or imgbb.com to host the picutres, and a site like youtube or vimeo for the video. You can use this https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/f...hlhccpdbc?hl=en to download the video from the council website.

The council will issue a stock rejection letter no matter what you submit, so I'd just send something simple and to the point. Also send them copies of http://bit.ly/2vlXb2t http://bit.ly/2Ds5cYf and http://bit.ly/31yv8L6

Dear London Borough of Hounslow,

The alleged contravention did not occur, this is because the signage at the location does not convey the restriction imposed by the Traffic Management Order. I refer you to the decisions in the following cases:

Yadevinder Hothi v London Borough of Hounslow (2180474156, 05 January 2019)
Nisha Patel v London Borough of Hounslow (2190096099, 13 April 2019)
Alistair Kelly v London Borough of Hounslow (2190228928, 05 August 2019)

There is no basis to believe the tribunal would reach a different decision in this case as the facts are the same, in light of this the PCN should be cancelled.
JayEss
I replied as advised and received the rejection letter recently. See here https://ibb.co/6tBxyF9

Is it worth pursing? and could someone please advise what to do next?

Thanks in advance.

This is the new order: https://www.hounslow.gov.uk/download/downlo...-_tmop03219.pdf

The description of the "Length of road" and "Location" is exactly the same as before, so I would carry on. We cannot guarantee success, but so far the tribunal has been very consistent in holding that the location described in the order is wrong. For the council to enforce these signs, the TMO should create a restriction that prohibits motor vehicles from driving on Norwood Road.

As the new order uses the exact same wording as the old order, the previous decisions are obviously relevant. I would suggest you simply register the appeal and write "detailed grounds to follow" in the reasons box, this will force the council to submit its evidence first.
JayEss

Thanks. Which reason for 'Grounds of Appeal' should I use? see here for choices: https://ibb.co/g7y1R0j

And if I put detailed grounds to follow, when would I provide these details?

Thank you

Register the appeal online, there's no point in wasting time with posting paper forms, the website is https://londontribunals.org.uk/ follow the link to "Create new appeal", you'll need the verification code that's printed on the Notice of Rejection. The statutory ground of appeal is that the alleged contravention did not occur.

Once you've registered the appeal, the tribunal will email you a hearing date, as long as you submit your full appeal wording to the tribunal before that date the adjudicator will take it into account.

Also upload the other page of the Notice of Rejection so we can check for errors.
JayEss
Thanks. Please find the other pages here:

Will log it online as advised. Cheers

Nothing, the council now has 7 days to supply its evidence to the tribunal. Unless/until that happens, you don't need to do a thing.
JayEss
Ok thanks, how will I know if they have done this? The appeal was lodged on about 2 weeks ago now.

Log onto the tribunal appeals portal and have a look, if any evidence has been uploaded, it'll be there. If there's nothing there, take a screenshot.
JayEss
Nothing there other than what I put on - evidence to follow.

Does this mean I shouldn’t upload anything further?

Thanks

Not yet no. If the council doesn't upload anything, there will be no evidence of anything and you'll automatically win.
JayEss

They have submitted some evidence now. I have until 15/11 to submit anything further. please advise what I should submit. Thanks
