Thank you for your email below.
Once a parking charge notice has been issued a parking operator has up to six years to chase the alleged debt.
If the operator does not invoke the Protection of Freedoms Act for keeper liability (this is where the timescales are prominent), they may continue to chase the debt.
If you were not the driver you should (if you can) give the name and address of the driver so that liability can be transferred.
Unfortunately without the driver details, the parking operator will continue to chase the keeper and the courts will decide if the keeper was in all probability the driver.
You may wish to seek legal advice on this matter or appeal to the parking operator.
You have not named the operator so I cannot confirm if they are a member or not, they may be a member of the International Parking Community. www.theipc.info .
We will investigate any complaints about alleged non-compliance with the Code of Practice.
However, we are not set up to deal with disputes from the general public about parking or control.
We are not a legal entity nor a regulatory body.
Therefore, the Code does not provide a way for the driver to challenge how a landowner or operator has applied parking control or enforcement on private land.
Any challenge or appeal is a matter for the landowner's or operator's procedure, with the option of taking it to POPLA, and or the Courts.
We will not get involved in the arbitration of a dispute between an operator and an individual.
