Dear all,
received PCN today in Lewes East Sussex.

Contravention code 25.

Ticket reads "Parked in a loading place during restricted hours without loading".

Road marking reads "Loading only".

Plate on wall of adjacent shop reads "loading only max 45 minutes no return for 1 hour".

I was unloading.

Can I challenge the pcn on these grounds.

Regards
bama

loading and unloading are synonymous as far as PCNs are concerned
do you have any paperwork that backs up the loading/unloading ?


and the rest of the PCN please

I was hoping that because I was unloading and not loading I was not under any obligation to show or have proof of doing so.
If a sign says no entry you cant enter that road.
If a sign says no loading,I can unload.
Am I flogging a dead horse.
Thanks

Some councils act as if loading/unloading means that activity must take place at the vehicle itself at all times. If they observe a vehicle for 5 minutes with no activity, they assume it's parked and can ticket it.

However, in past appeals - and I'm sure the PPP experts will supply better details - adjudicators have acknowledged that it is not a simple as that. Loading can include waiting for goods to be checked and signed for by the recipient, or require deliverey up several flights of stairs etc.

This is why Bama asked if you have any paperwork to support the delivery. With, say, a signed delivery note or a receipt for an exceptionally heavy or bulky item you'd just purchased it would be a lot easier convince the adjudicators that you were genuinely unloading.

Jane Packer Flowers is the reference case

as you are claiming the (un)loading exemption you will have to back that up with some evidence - hence the question.
