Hi ,

 

I received a charge from MET parking, apparently my charge was observed for 20 minutes.

 

The reason my car was parked at the front was because i had just returned from the school run,

 

 

unfortunately for me,

where i live they are building the Royal Wharf.

which means that every day for the past 18 months if you move your car from 7.am and after, your space will be taken, and all the other roads have no space due to amount of contractors they have working on the site.

 

 

ive seen some people arrive as early as 5am and sleep in their cars until they have to start, and of recent vans are parking and leaving their vehicles on the road until Fridays, meaning less and less space for residents on the road,

 

on the day of the offense, i arrived from school run with my 2 year old daughter, and there was no parking spaces on my road or on any of the other road around.

 

 

My daugher was bursting to do a number 2, so i parked at the front and took her upstairs. When returned i had received a ticket. I don't have a permit to park in the 3 car space available on the grounds.

 

Im stuck on how to appeal

as you are a tenant you will supremacy of contract.

I gather this is obviously a private housing estate

 

 

MET can only issue speculative invoices

they are not fines.

Opps hope the dvla doesnt catch up with you

As that will be a fine that can be enforced with bailiffs

 

And i hope you've updated your insurance company else..that's fraud!

ticket attached to vehicle should not be appealed but wait for teh NTK, which they have to send out between 29 and 56 days after the event.

 

In the meanwhile post up some iamges of the signage, a copy of the ticket with personal details removed.

 

Also, get your keeper details corrected NOW

so you get the NTK sent to the correct address,

the parking company will try and do the dirty on you otherwise.

 

supremacy of contract means that your tenancy gives you certain rights that no-one other than a court can remove and that may include the right to park without having to show a permit

 

certainly it will trump the contract the parking co has

as they cant alter your rights just by putting up a sign.

Then you need to liase with him regarding when it arrives and what you do about it as he can easily pass the buck if he wishes but that should be only if you are in a better position to fight any claim
