Hi All,


I just received a council PCN for a missing parking permit and I was wondering if I had any grounds.


I purchased my car not too long ago and have not yet attached a tax disk holder / resident permit holder. I had therefore temporarily removed these from the dashboard when I had the window open to avoid them flying off and had parked the car without putting these back - which wasn't clever.


The contravention was for "Parked in a residents' zone or shared use parking place or zone without either clearly displaying a valid permit or voucher or pay and display ticket issued for that place, or without payment of the parking charges - shared use bay".



Would I have any grounds on either the basis that I had a valid permit, but not displayed (which I guess is still a contravention), or that the tax disc number / expiry date are printed as "Unknown"


Many thanks in advance for your help.

You may as well try an appeal, showing proof that you had a permit and explaining the situation. It would be a discretionary cancellation, but they might agree. Absence of the other data makes no difference, sadly.

I know this is from a while ago - but I just noticed I had not replied to this thread with the outcome.


I appealed and the council decided to scrap the PCN. Thanks again guys - another win.
