Here's the chain of events, any advice appreciated!
Thursday 23rd November 2017
- "An authorised driver" parked my wife's car in a restaurant car park in York,
went in to the restaurant to ask if a payment could be made to park until Sunday 26th (Minster Baywatch didn't offer anything above a "3 hours + until 6am" option).
£15 paid and a hand written receipt was issued,
showing the registration number of the car,
and confirming authorisation to park from 23rd to 26th.
No other writing on the receipt that stated the receipt needed to be kept on display in the car.
Friday 24th November - Parking Charge Notice issued by Minster Baywatch, reason stated that no valid parking ticket was being displayed.
Sunday 26th November - Car removed from car park within the agreed time.
Saturday 30th December - NTK received.
We have made no contact so far with Minster Baywatch.
The NTK shows photographs of the car confirming no ticket being displayed on the dashboard.
My main question is,
because the driver went directly to the restaurant and made an agreement with them,
with nothing confirming that their receipt needed to be kept on display,
does this in any way override any presumed contract with the parking operator?
Any advice appreciated.
I have redacted scans of the NTK and receipt from the restaurant,
so far keep getting an error when I try to upload them ,
will continue to try and get them uploaded.
