I am a Hgv driver and took a break I needed at the esso on the A2 Gravesend. I used the shop to buy food then finished my 45 min break.
My employer has received a parking ticket saying I overstayed the time limit tbh I never even saw the sign. I know that’s not a excuse but on the ticket it doesn’t say how long you are allowed.
Is there anything I can do to appeal the ticket?
depends on the original planning consent. Some places have a minimum of 2 or 3 hours free parking, others dont specify. If the latter applies then the bandits may set any limit they wish and this is normally done to make them money rather than manage parking space availability.
When sainsburys was built at Selhurst Park the planning allowed customer parking but the footy club also wanted the store to close in the aftrenoon on match days and as they were the landlord sainsburys complied. Now a frined of mine who lived (very)nearby insisted on proving a point over the planning issue as he was fed up with cars parked in local streets and took Sainsburys to task over this unauthorised change to car park use and won. the end result was he was photographed by them leaving the court and he was banned from every Sainsburys in the country!
