My partner's residential permit expired two weeks prior to getting a ticket 19R.

They did send a reminder to her previous address-also within the borough.

However not only had she already changed her driving licence, registered her new address for Council Tax and applied for and and now possesses a blue Disabled badge.

 

She is obviously at fault at missing the payment date.

However they know she has lived at the new address since the last week of August because of Council tax and later her application for a disabled badge.

One would have thought that the Council should have worked out her new address.

Is it really realistic that when moving house one has to inform every Council department in order to cover oneself.

 

Is there any hope that an appeal could be successful on those grounds?

The simple answer is yes, different departments, in the same way that informing the DVLA about change of address for a driving licence, does not change the address on your V5c car registration document unless you inform the DVLA separately. Have you done that? If not do so now.

 

You can make an informal appeal explaining the circs, asking for their discrtetion, but don't try to lay any blame on the council.

Council tax records contain all sorts of personal data about people living at the property. It's none of the business of people processing parking permits, and they don't have access to it.

 

You have to remember your permit needs renewing, like with your MOT or your road tax - you can't rely on the council telling you.
