  1. I am going to appeal to PATA. The following is the proposed wording for the appeal. Is it acceptable or would you suggest any amendments: "With reference to the aforementioned PCN, in summary, the two grounds for appeal are: 1. The contravention did not occur: I was making a delivery (unloading) at the time. Enclosed find: a. Invoice from 101wholesale for an internet order as evidence that goods were being delivered to a company. At the bottom of the invoice, you can clearly see the instructions stated by the buyer asking us to delivery on 08/06/2010. b.
  2. In that case when I appeal to PATA I will explain to them that I had made my representation two times (once upon receiving the PCN and the second time when I received the NTO). The NoR says: "... I have noticed your comments unfortunately the vehicle was parked in a loading bay, the serving officer observed your vehicle for 8 minutes and the serving officer did not observe any loading taking place. We have considered your representation, supporting evidence (if applicable) and the circumstances of the case but we do not accept your representations for cancelling the Penalty
  3. Thanks for reply guys. Jamberson... I concur with you in that I think PATA will be the best way now. Just to summarise what has happened so far: 1. Received PCN on car 2. Wrote with my representation a few days later (I suppose you call this an "informal" representation). Council did not reply to this. 3. I received NTO, and I immediately replied referring back to my original representation (I suppose you would consider this a "formal" representation). 4. I received a Charge Certificate demanding increased charge of £150 (up from £100). 5. I received a Notice of Re
  4. I thought the charge cert. must be issued after the rejection notice. With the Notice of Rejection they have however attached a PATA appeal form though. So... what is my best way forward now... go straight to PATA or first ask them to cancel the charge cert?
  5. Jamberson Feel free to correct me but the grounds for appealing the PCN are: - I was correctly parked in a loading (and have a delivery note to prove that I was making that drop off) - The council has not followed procedure and issued a rejection notice AFTER the charge certificate.
  6. It gets worse!!! - As you are aware, I received a charge certificate dated 17/11/2010 (sent to my old address) received a few day later in which the PCN has been increased from £100 to £150. - I have yesterday received a Notice of Rejection of Formal Representation dated 19/11/2010 (2 days after the charge cert.). Isnt this procedurally incorrect?? The Rejection letter states that If I dont pay or appeal within 28 days from 19/11/2010 THEN the charge will be increased. In this case they have increased the charge prior to the rejection. Is this enough to have the PCN thrown out i
  7. Jamberson thank you so much for your swift reply. Your comments have been noted and I will do as you suggest. I concur about the point about them logging and viewing the vehicle for a short period of time (after all they cant spend on day on my car). But I read some where that the onus is on the council to prove I was not loading. I made a note of the outcome (sadly I didnt log the url where this was posted) "Parking adjudicators decision in Douglas v Brent (PAS case No. 1960031276) that, since the driver had right to park for the purposes of loading, the burden of proof lies with T

  9. Hi there Barking & Dagenham issued a PCN on 08/06/2010 and attached it to my car. The contravention is: PARKED IN A LOADING PLACE DURING RESTRICTED HOURS WITH LOADING The PCN was issued at 19.40 and observed from 19:32 to 19:40. However the signage allows for 30 mins of loading with no return within 2 hrs. 1. I wrote to the council on 16/06/2010 asking them why they had issued a ticket after observing my car for 8 mintues despite the signage allowing for 30 mintues. 2. I chased them again on 28th June. 3. I then received an NTO dated 12/10/2010 received on 20/10/201
  10. Hi all Thank you for your comments. The PCN was on a on a public highway (on a council Pay & Display). Thankfully I hadn't been arrested and I wasn't stuck in a lift! But m circumstances were clearly exceptional since I wasn't able to leave the court room in the middle of giving evidence. The case was originally programmed (by the judge) from no more than 30 mins. It actually ran well over an hour. Surely someone else must have had a similar experience and it would be interesting to hear how the council reacted. This particular council (Redbridge) never backs
  11. I would greatly appreciate it if you could confirm whether I have any grounds for appeal against a PCN issued and attached to my car. My situation is this: I was the defendant in a County Court case. I arrived on time at 10am (for the hearing scheduled for 11am) and paid for parking on a pay & display for the maximum allowable time. My hearing was postponed till after lunch. I paid for further parking time. Our hearing was scheduled by the judge for 30 mins and I had paid for parking in excess of this time. However, the hearing ran for well over 60 mins. In fact it
