Hi, I'm after some advice if you could help me please.



I recently receive a PCN for parking part on and part off the pavement in Croydon. I have since learnt that this is not allowed in 'London'. Whereas where I live it is encouraged as the council removed the grass verges along the road (Google street view PO7 7RU, will show).



My question is do I have any grounds to appeal due to the fact that along the stretch of road which I was parked, had a continuous dropped kerb. Some of the dropped kerb area is used by a business (Gaybank Construction) to access their parking area, but some of the dropped kerb area would take you to a brick wall. This is the area I was parked. (Google street view CR2 6QB)



I could have parked anywhere along this road, there are no yellow lines or parking restrictions and I truly believed I was doing the right thing by parking half off and half on.



thanks for any help/advise you could offer



regards Darren

In London unless there are marked bays you cannot park off the carriageway, it doesn't matter if it is grass verge, a crossover from a drop kerb, footway or anything else. Unless there is something wrong with the PCN I would pay up, suggesting that obstructing the footway rather than the carriageway was in your view 'doing the right thing' is going to get nowhere.
