Hi I received a parking ticket in May for parking infront of a dropped kerb adjacent to a footway I was not parked next to a drop kerb nor is there a footway. I appealed the ticket and it was rejected on the basis I was blocking access (I wasn't). The enforcement officer took about 15 photos This happened in May of this year In the council's response I vaguely recall them stating they would send me info on how to appeal to the adjudicator which I intended to do. I can no longer find this response and am unsure if it was electronic or printed. I am certain I never received any follow up so forgot about it. I now have now received a letter from Marstons with a final warning and payment of £513 required Is there anyway I can still appeal this? There is absolutely no dropped kerb where I parked nor yellow lines. I have been informed by an enforcement agent previously it is ok to park there (no proof I know) I don't know how to proceed. I don't want to pay the £500 for something which didn't occur. Have I got a CCJ now? Any advice much appreciated thanks
This very recent Local Government Ombudsman's decision (released 10 days ago) is another one of importance. In this particular case, a motorist had incurred a penalty charge notice from London Borough of Haringey for wrongful parking. As the contravention was for parking as opposed to a CCTV contravention, she received a Penalty Charge Notice on her car advising that the charge was £130 but if she made payment within 14 days, she would be entitled to a 50% discount bringing the penalty down to £65. She told the council that she could not pay and offered to clear the debt over a 15 month period at £5 per month; the Council refused but offered here a further 14 days to pay at the reduced rate. She refused to pay. A warrant of control has been issued and passed to bailiffs to enforce and the debt has risen from £65 to £513 (to include bailiff fees of £310).
