Hi, Appreciate any advice with the following please.

 

Driving from Kent to Tyneside

stopped at Leicester Forest East at 6pm had a coffee fell asleep and left at 9pm. It was dark so no recollection of any signage being displayed.

 

I have now received the first letter asking for £100 but discounted to £60 if I pay within 14 days.

 

I feel miffed as it was late and I was as tired and the car park was empty.

 

What is the best couse of action?

I fear that making an appeal to PE will just be rejected or should I just ignore the enevitable PE threatening letters which will follow.

 

Regards

Brassica

This is going to need some work. Looking on Google Street View, there is a free standing pole with the cameras on and a sign below that which isn't lit. While there is street lighting around the area, none of them are dedicated to the ANPR sign so it is perfectly reasonable to miss the sign.

 

What we really need is a newer photo of any signs around the entrance to LFE services as the one I can see is from May 2017.

 

Have a look at this blog entry from ShutEye on the Parking Prankster website

As the post code of this site is LE3 3GB it is likely that any planning permission for the cameras and advertising consent for the signs would be on the Planning Portal of Leicester City Council. Good luck with that site. I tried and couldn't understand most of what they want.

Ignore the Leicester City Council link. LFE services come under Blaby District Council. I have checked and I cannot see any planning permissions for the mounts for the cameras nor advertising consent (so far)

 

If that is the case, the charge should be unenforcible as the cameras and signs are illegally placed.

most of these palces have signs about a micron across that say if you want to stop longer you ahve to go into a specific business on the premises and give them your details and possibly some cash to do so. this is so they dotn get slapped for going after drivers doing exactly what you did, stop for safety reasons.

 

Get on to Welcome Break head office and ask them whether they have seen the signs regarding gaining permission for a longer stay and where exactly they are and how the system works as you intend to make a complaint about the lack of ability to enter into negotiations about having a proper rest for safety reasons and intned to report it to the ASA amongst others.

 

What you want to do is get them to see that you are going to be awkward over this and what you really want is to get PE to cancel without you haveing to grovel to them when it is WB's responsibility there is a problem in the first place

Thanks for all of the advice. Following up on the advice given I seem to be in the following status-

 

I don't have pictures of the signs at LFE and it is inconvenient for me to make a special journey to do this.

I think especially as I need to see how visible these signs are in darkness.

 

From Blaby council site there is no planning permission approved for signage or cameras and this will be required where cameras are on poles or signs exceed a certain size.

I think there is an avenue of complaint here.

Even where complainants fight the charge on the basis of there being no planning permission in most cases the courts continue the action and allow retrospective planning to be applied for.

 

As regards Welcome Break their website details what parkers need to do when exceeding the 2 hour free time period (once again are the signs adequate in informing in this regard??).

No body was available to talk to me about parking on their sites and there stock answer is to appeal to PE for all issues relating to parking.

 

At the moment I am thinking that I either Write to PE and let them know that I do not intend to pay this PCN as

I consider the charge unfair as I had to stop for safety reasons.

State that the signs are inadequate (I need to check first) and also they don't have planning consent to cover their adverts and cameras.

 

Or I ignore all correspondance totally

 

Or I write to them stating that I will not be paying and I will contest this in court and then ignore all correspondance.

 

Or pay the charge because the effort required and the stress of the letters when I am busy is more hassle than the £60 or £100 charge.

 

Any advice on tactics greatly received or is there any other angle on this not yet been covered.

 

Regards

Brassica

you contact WELCOME BREAK or their owners, not the parking co.

Point out that you are obliged by law to stop driving as you did and that there was no obvious method of informing anyone that you were going to stay there longer then PE's ARBITARY limit.

 

point out that PE's signs are rubbish and get them to show they are adequate if they think they are

Get them to turn up in the middle of the night and spot them from a car!

 

PE wont drop the matter unless forced to because this s the only way they make money (doesnt help with parking control if people dont know until after the event) so no point appealing to them
