It is my first post here as you can see and it is about a PCN i got back in September 2007 for parking on a single yellow line on a Sunday.
I sent the appeal via email with pics to show that there were no time plates on anywhere on that road. Also to show there were metal posts on either side of the road which had no sign attached to them, just bare metal posts on the road. I was parked in the beginning/end of the road, basically near the corner.
I received no acknowledgement of the appeal.
I received a notice to owner 2 weeks ago saying I had not repsonded to the chance to pay the reduced fee so I must pay the double of £120.
I spoke to them, and explained that I still have not hear the outcome of the appeal. They said to send a copy of this notice to owner and a covering letter. I did this and that was 2 weeks ago.
Exactly 2 weeks after I did this I received a letter now saying that they apologise for the delay in replying to my 'informal representations'. What does this mean? Informal in terms of it not going to court, or informal in terms of my language....?
They have said that they reject my representations because the road is part of a the area's inner CPZ. This zone they say is enforced from 8am to 10pm. The restriction times and signs are apparently clearly displayed and marked on each entry time plate to the zone. They also say that there is no need foor additional time paltes for yellow lines as the yellow lines are governed by the hours of the controlled zone.
They say unless I was loading/unloading...and they give a max of 20 mins for this to happen. They also say that there must be a clear indication of such an operation in progress....now how can I get that...? lol.
I also wrote in the appeal how rude the attendant was when I asked why I was given this PCN. They made no reply to this.
They have just said right of appeal to adjudicator or pay reduced fine within 14 days or it doubles or then it triples!!
What do you guys think??
Isnt it meant to be cancelled as they made no reply to my appeal back in September?
I would really apprecitae your help.
Thanks in advance and sorry for the long post lol.
