Hello gang


Looking for some advice, I received a PCN from Cambridgeshire County Council last Sunday for reason "Parked without payment of the parking charge - Code 11)


I had bought a ticket for the period in question but a gust of wind it must have slipped it off the dashboard as I closed my door.


I still have my ticket and I was wondering if I have a case to appeal and if there is a template you suggest I could use? I have never appealed before - never actually had a PCN before.


It's for £50 but will be reduced to £25 if I pay within 14 days, which is next Sunday.


Thanks for your help

If y ou have your ticket that covers the time, i would appeal and send a copy of the ticket as evidence.


Unless the sign said it must be displayed clearly, then you should be in the clear.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

I'm not up to speed with code 11, but normally, a pay and display sign does not state that you have to display a ticket, so an appeal on that basis would fail.




A better line of appeal might just be a polite letter acknowledging the contravention and explaining the situation. You may get a discretionery cancel. And, as advised, include a copy of your ticket, front and back.

parking adjudicator decisions on slipped tickets are numerous so an explanation along with a COPY of your ticket and a polite request to ask them to cancel as the actual breach may be considered de minimis bearing in mind you had paid and attempted to fulfil the conditions.
