Hello,

 

i received a PCN for 'Parked in a residents' or shared use parking place or zone displaying an invalid permit, an invalid voucher or an invalid pay & display ticket' - Contravention Code: 19.

 

However i have to issues with the PCN:

 

1. I had displayed a Resident's Visitor Parking Permit with the correct details, clearly displayed on my dashboard.

2. The PCN is not signed.

 

So i am not sure why the parking officer has left me a ticket :confused:, i have written to to them to appeal the ticket for the above reasons. But i was just wondering if anybody on here knew my my reason above are valid ones to appeal against the ticket. Especially the PCN not being signed, i seem to remember reading about that previously on here, that if a PCN is not signed then its not valid, is that correct?

 

Anyway, any help or advise will be much appreciated, thank you in advance.

Nope, the PCN doesn't have to be signed I'm afraid.

 

But if the ticket is for a contravention that didn't occur, I'm intrigued what excuse the council will come back with.

There is no requirement for a signature.

 

From the regs.

Contents of a penalty charge notice served under regulation 9

 

1. A penalty charge notice served under regulation 9 must, in addition to the matters required to be included in it by regulation 3(2) of the Representations and Appeals Regulations, state—

(a) the date on which the notice is served;

(b) the name of the enforcement authority;

© the registration mark of the vehicle involved in the alleged contravention;

(d) the date and the time at which the alleged contravention occurred;

(e) the grounds on which the civil enforcement officer serving the notice believes that a penalty charge is payable;

(f) the amount of the penalty charge;

(g) that the penalty charge must be paid not later than the last day of the period of 28 days beginning with the date on which the penalty charge notice was served;

(h) that if the penalty charge is paid not later than the last day of the period of 14 days beginning with the date on which the notice is served, the penalty charge will be reduced by the amount of any applicable discount;

(i) the manner in which the penalty charge must be paid; and

(j) that if the penalty charge is not paid before the end of the period of 28 days referred to in subparagraph (g), a notice to owner may be served by the enforcement authority on the owner of the vehicle.

 

For the avoidance of further questions, the regs 3(2) referred to above state:

(2) A penalty charge notice served under regulation 9 of the General Regulations must, in addition to the matters required to be included in it under paragraph 1 of the Schedule to the General Regulations, include the following information—

(a) that a person on whom a notice to owner is served will be entitled to make representations to the enforcement authority against the penalty charge and may appeal to an adjudicator if those representations are rejected; and

(b) that, if representations against the penalty charge are received at such address as may be specified for the purpose before a notice to owner is served—

(i) those representations will be considered;

(ii) but that, if a notice to owner is served notwithstanding those representations, representations against the penalty charge must be made in the form and manner and at the time specified in the notice to owner.
