Hi, I have received a PCN from Premier Park for parking in Exeter Road Car Park in Braunton, Devon.


I parked in this carpark for 20 mins at 19:06 and it was dark.

I did not realise that it was a paid car park as the notices were not that clear and lighting was low.


'Contrevention date': 2nd November, 2017.

The issue date of the PCN: 8th November, 2017.


The PCN requests £60 if paid by 14 days from issue date or £100 afterwards.


I have googled around and this car park seems to have a history of this issue.

I do not live any where near the car park, I cannot get images etc.


From what I have read, Premier Park provides images in daylight or with a strong flash to 'prove' that they have enough lighting.

I cannot provide this evidence, but even in the images that they have provided on the PCN form shows how dark it is.


Could you provide me with any advice for a potential defence.


Also, if I apeal to Premier Park (which I expect they will turn down) and then go to POPLA, will this mean that if I am refused, they will charge £100.


Any advice is appreciated.

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

On the assumption that this car park is opposite the Co-Op and the Post Office AND, the signs haven't changed in the last year or two then there are grounds for challenge. Insufficient signage for one but we need someone to go and get actual images from the site in question. I cannot read any of the signs on Google Streetview


As Premier Park are members of the BPA, they will automatically reject you but then must give you a POPLA code to take it to appeal. Around 50% of appeals succeed with POPLA.

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

You ask if PP will charge £100-

well if you intend paying up then yes they will.


most of the parking co's dont do things well enough to actually offer a contract that is meaningful so generally our advice is to fight it all the way.


You have already noted that you werent offered a contract because it was too dark to see their inadequate signage and that is enough for a judge to be satisfied.


How far are you willing to go with this is the real question because the parking co's will often take people to court when they have no hope of winning because they know most people give up and pay up at this point so it becomes a numbers game
