council of Tower Hamlets PCN - PLEASE HELP!!

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

Could you please help me to appeal on this PCN parking penalty, below is the main body of this ticket

 

----------------------------------

Contravention Date: 02/04/2016

Contravention Code: 62

 

Issued by Civil Enforcement Officer who had reasonable cause to believe that the following parking contravention had occurred:

Parking with one or more wheels on or over a footpath or any part of a road other than a carriageway.

----------------------------------

 

It was a Sat afternoon, this street (Manilla Street in Canary Wharf Dockland) was free to park outside the 'Permit Holders Only' restriction time. Here I have also attached 3 photos, my car is the Black one. And below are a couple of points I would like raise

 

1. I have parked my car on one side of this narrow road whereas the other side was full of cars parking. My car was just right next to the construction site fencing and my front was near the end of the fencing. To be honest this side was less friendly (pretty crappy road surface) to park when compared to the other side since the width between the single yellow line and the construction site fencing was very narrow.

 

2. It is a pretty narrow carriageway with both sides full of cars parking, the reason why I parked my car very close to the fencing was because I wouldn't want to create traffic collision, otherwise other cars wouldn't be able to safely and easily drive through in the middle.

 

3. The White car behind was parked pretty much in the same manner (in terms of position) as mine, however no PCN Ticket has been issued to this car.

 

4. There was no road sign warning us in terms of the parking manner/usage. The area of my parking was really the end of the road meaning no pedestrian would physically walk into it.

 

Many thanks for your help in advance :oops:

Although the site fencing has formed a tempting 'lay-by', the fact is it's part of the footway and footway parking is not allowed in London boroughs unless there is signage which specifically permits it.

 

I can't see any grounds for a successful appeal.

 

You can appeal within the first 14 days of issue of a PCN and the Council will put your case on hold until they respond. When they reject your appeal, they will extend the discounted rate by another 14 days.

 

This, at least, gives you further time to pay. Otherwise I suggest you pay the discounted rate now.

I think you might have a line of appeal if you argue you weren't on the footway, so the contravention did not occur.

 

By the look of the photos, you could possibly argue that you were in the mouth of a junction (or what appeared to be) which happens to be fenced off.

 

It's a long shot, but you never know.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
