I came to return my brother's car and parked on the suspended bus stop which had been closed due to Gasworks mains replacement.
Below is my letter to Newham, I have appeal on 18th Jan 2019 and need some guidance.
The PCN ….. was issued while the vehicle was parked on the Bus Stop on Plashet Road.
Plashet Road was closed due to Mains Replacement work on Green Street.
Stukeley Road had notices stating that it was closed from 28th July to 5th October.
The works overran the above schedule and I wasn’t aware of its completion until after I was informed about PCN.
My brother was replacing carpet at his home and had borrowed by Toyota Previa to dispose off old carpet at the tip in Jenkins Lane.
I came on Sunday to replace the car,
I parked his little Swift and drove off with my Previa.
Later my brother found the above-mentioned PCN on his car and sent me a message.
I accept parking his Swift on the bus stop as the bus stop was suspended since the start of the work, all buses were being diverted via Stukeley Road.
Had the notices stated the correct date and if the notices were removed after the completion of the works I would have realised the bus stop suspension was removed and not parked the Swift where I did.
I will appreciate if you will revoke this penalty as I didn’t park the Swift to cause any obstruction and nor was it intentional.
I hope to hear from you very soon.
