  1. I have just had a private message from someone who got a PCN in a similar situation outside Eastbury Primary School. Apparently they appealed and it was turned down. I am still waiting to hear from the council for a response to my appeal. They said that they would respond within 3 months, and if they miss this deadline, I am considering making a complaint to the Local Government Ombudsman for failure to respond within their deadline. What do you think? PS. I think it unfair that I was given deadlines of 14-days and 28-days to respond, whereas the council gives themsleves 3 month
  2. On the 28th day, I submitted an online challenge to the PCN as follows: There has been a procedural impropriety (described below) on the part of the enforcement authority. (a) The photographs clearly show that my vehcile was not parked on school entrance markings. (b) My vehicle was parked on a single yellow line at a time when parking is allowed. Possible complications: 1. I moved 6 months ago - and only submitted my logbook for my new address a week ago - so the address on my appeal is different to the address that they wrote to me at (forwarded by Royal Mail). I wonder if they
  3. Just to let you know that ... it is a CPZ ... but the restriction is 1.30-2.30, which is not when the vehicle was parked! I am about to submit the "the contravention did not occur" message....
  4. I'm not sure if I'm brave enough, but will have in the back of my mind in case they get annoying.
  5. How do you deal with them when they visit?
  6. And thank you for forcing me to learn how to upload photos - this has also been the first time that I have used an internet based forum.
  7. I will have to go back and double-check for CPZs, but I do know for certain that the cars on the other side of the road are parked legally, which is why I suspect it is not a CPZ. I really appreciate the time and advice that you have give on this. Thanks.
  8. Are are you saying the No Stopping on Entrance Markings sign invokes a Controlled Parking Zone, which automatically includes any single yellow lines. If so, how far does the CPZ extend, because there are yellow lines either side of both the sets of zigzags too? If not, just to clarify, I haven't parked over the words, yellow zig zags look like this. (Link.) i.e. each set of zigzag markings includes words with zigzags at each end. There are two sets of zigzag markings on this road, each with words in the middle. Also, the yellow line (with the words) which link the two zigzags runs along
  9. It is a bit weird that legislation relates zigzags to entrances (schools, fire stations, etc), whereas the PCN does not use the work "entrance". Do you think that I should also mention the lack of sign linked to the single yellow line in case their reason for issuing the PCN "Stopped in a restricted area outside a school" includes both zigzags and single yellow lines that happen to be on school roads?
  10. Photo 1: (showing car parked on single yellow line) Photo 2: Just about showing that there are 2 separate school entrance markings (i.e. zigzags). Also, other cars indicate that it is not a CPZ. Background: There is no sign indicating a parking restriction (as required, I think) by the single yellow line. (I wouldn't park on a yellow zigzag!)
  11. Thanks for the advice. To be honest, all I could find on Tinipic.com was links to other websites. I'll keep plugging away at flikr or keep looking for other options.
  12. First attempt! (Apparently the trick was to use a Guest Pass.) Zoomed-in showing parked on single yellow - not part of the zig zag indicating a school entrance. Zoomed-out, just about showing that there are two separate school entrances, each with zig zags. Also, there is parking on the other side of the road, so I suspect that it is not a CPZ.
