My disabled dad recently visited a shopping centre that has free parking, he parked in a disabled bay but forgot to put up his badges, he came back less than an hour later to find he had a parking ticket. He has tried to appeal it and sent in copies of his badge plus evidence that the car parked was indeed his car but they have said he still needs to pay the £75 fine. Is there anything else we can do?

If he had parked one bay over he would not have been in a disabled bay and it would have been free parking 24/7/365, it just seems very unfair.

You do not need to pay them a penny. The BB scheme is not applicable on private land. He parked in a disabled bay, he has proved to the PPC he is disabled, end of. Ignore their threat-o-grams from now on.

 

Who is the PPC?

 

Was the ticket issued after 1st Oct?

 

If so, in refusing the appeal have they given you a code for an appeal to POPLA?

Yes, just ignore!. It's not a "fine" , it's an unenforceable invoice. The blue badge scheme does not apply on private land and the only thing that the landowner can claim for is the actual material loss they have suffered. In this case it's a big fat zero. Please read other threads on here that deal with private parking tickets. Could you tell us the name of the parking company that issued this stupid bit of paper?

Hi the experts will be along but you need to give more detail re where and who gave ticket to see if real parking fine or unenforceable invoice, then they will be able to advise.

I presume the PPC is the name of the company issuing the ticket, this is Parking Control Management (UK) Ltd and the tickets was issued in November. In their reply they have included a few pages about appealing tickets on private land and the form says it was issued by POPLA.

Essentially you have two options:

 

Ignore any further letters threatening court action etc. It's all bluff, they very, very rarely issue a court claim.

 

Appeal to POPLA. You have good grounds. It will cost the PPC £27 +VAT if you do and the POPLA dcision is binding on the PPC, but not on the motorist. So if POPLA fails, you can just resume the default position of ignoring.
