Would appreciate some urgent help on this issue please

as my deadline for appealing this PCN is just hours from expiring.


I was recently visiting a local hospital (St Helier in Carshalton) and

parked on a nearby street.


Days later and to my horror,

I received a PCN from Sutton Council stating that I had been guilty of the following parking regulation:


Contravention Code: 62J Parked with one or more wheels on or over a footpath

or any part of a road other than a carriageway.


Naturally, I was rather peeved to receive this PCN as I did not believe I had caused any contravention at all

and these are therefore the main grounds for me wishing to challenge this PCN:


1) Due to the narrowness of that particular stretch of road,

just about every single vehicle parked on that road has to do so with two wheels on the pavement.

Anything else other than that would practically cause a road block.


2) I believe that my vehicle was parked reasonably and did not restrict or inhibit pedestrian access in any way.


3) The signage erected a few metres away from my vehicle only instructs motorists

to park in marked bays but crucially, does not state that parking on that road is restricted to marked bays only.


4} There were no road markings (yellow lines, red lines, etc)

or other form of parking restriction on any part of the road where my vehicle was parked.


5) I have documentary evidence in the form of a letter from St Helier,

confirming my claim that I was visiting the hospital as an A&E patient

at the time of the alleged contravention.


Do the above points give me good grounds for a successful appeal?


I would really appreciate some prompt advice and feedback on this please.


I have provided copies of the council’s images of the alleged contravention and also of the nearby parking sign.



Thank you.

Sutton is a London Borough and as such parking on the pavements is not allowed anywhere .


The sign you have posted does allow for parking partially on the pavement but only in designated bays,

which you weren't.


Other users here may be able to notice an impropriety

but if time is that short I doubt you will get an answer within the timescale you need.


Looks to me that, unless this was a CPZ, you could have parked wholly on the road.

Thanks for the prompt feedback @spb1957. Really appreciate it.


I'll take a rain check by close of play today and

if the general consensus from other forum members is that I have no defence,

then sadly I have to swallow the bitter pill and settle the fine while

I still have the opportunity to do so at the reduced rate.



Thanks again.
