  1. I was the only person in the car so would this argument still work?
  2. They had camera stills of me leaving the car and walking towards McDonald's. Looks like it's from an elevated, fixed position so someone must have been following me remotely
  3. Hello, yes it was an ANPR. So I should just leave this alone rather than appeal to POPLA?
  4. The reply to my appeal (in which I stupidly said I went to McDonalds....) Dear xxxxxx Re: Parking Charge Notice Number xxxx (Vehicle: xxxxx) Site: (346) Southgate Park Issue date: 15/03/2018 POPLA Verification Code xxxxxxxxx Thank you for your correspondence received in regards to Parking Charge Notice . After careful consideration we have decided to reject your appeal for the following reasons: The terms and conditions of use of the car park are clearly stated on signs prominently displayed in this area. These include that the car park is for the use of Southgate Park customers while they are on the premises only, that McDonald's is NOT on Southgate Park and that there is no free parking for McDonald's. Our records show that your vehicle was left in this car park while you left Southgate Park walking in the direction of McDonald's therefore we believe the charge notice was issued correctly and we are upholding it. If you had wanted to park in this car park and go to McDonald’s you could have done so by paying the appropriate parking tariff. This decision, which has been based on the facts of the case and takes into account our consideration of any mitigating circumstances, is our final decision. You have now reached the end of our internal appeals procedure and you now have a number of options: 1. Pay or, if you were not the driver of the vehicle at the time of the incident, request the driver to pay the Parking Charge Notice at the prevailing price of £60 within 14 days of today’s date. Please note that after this time the Parking Charge Notice will revert to £100. 2. Make an appeal to POPLA, the Independent Appeals Service, within 28 days of the date of this letter by going to the online appeals system at ...... using verification code: xxxxxxxx Please note that POPLA will consider the evidence of both parties and make their decision based upon the facts and application of the relevant law. Please note that if you opt to appeal to POPLA, and should POPLA’s decision NOT go in your favour, you will be required to pay the full amount of £100. By law we are also required to inform you that Ombudsman Services provides an alternative dispute resolution service that would be competent to deal with your appeal. However, we have not chosen to participate in their alternative dispute resolution service. As such should you wish to appeal then you must do so to POPLA as explained above. 3. If you choose to do nothing, we will seek to recover the monies owed to us via our debt recovery procedures and may proceed with court action.

  6. Hello, I had exactly the same problem. Parked at Southgate Park Stansted, went to McDonalds then got a parking charge letter. I stupidly appealed it and therefore revealed myself as the driver, and the appeal was of course rejected. However the PCN letter came well after 2 weeks from when I parked there. Is this good grounds to appeal to POPLA? Hello, I've been issued with a parking charge notice by MET for parking at Southgate Park Stansted. The parking bays looked like they were there for the adjacent restaurants (McDonalds and Starbucks) I went to McDonalds, left after 12 minutes, 26 days later got a parking charge letter. Apparently I was not allowed to leave the car park on foot while I was parking there, and because I strayed more than 50 feet from the car I must now pay the charge. No obvious signs stating this, not something I would ever expect. I stupidly appealed it and therefore revealed myself as the driver, and the appeal was of course rejected. However the PCN letter came well after 2 weeks from when I parked there. Is this good grounds to appeal to POPLA.
