There are two official bodies, the BPA and the IAS. If you are unsure,

please check HERE

 

They sent a zoomed in picture of a yellow sign within their appeal rejection letter which is attached in my PDF

 

……...

 

I received a parking charge notice from ECP

I overstayed in a car park they run in Tonbridge at the rear of poundland.

I honestly thought Id bought 2 hours but apparently not.

I havnt got the ticket anymore so just going on what they say.

 

I was with my daughter, a 3 month old baby and a 2 year old toddler, after returning to the car we pulled away from the space and then the baby started getting really upset prior to exiting the car park, I just pulled over near the exit whilst my daughter fed him before putting him back in his car seat and exiting the car park.

I hadn't realised their was ANPR in operation at that time.

 

Foolishly I appealed before reading your forum.

Again foolishly I didn't make a copy of the appeal I wrote as I did it online on their website and filled their form out.

Subsequently they rejected my appeal.

 

I have just been back to the site and took some photographic evidence of the site.

There is only a very small sign on the entrance to the car park,

a white one not yellow,

but about 4 or 5 of the larger yellow ones dotted around the site on the walls and 1 above the payment machines.

 

Bearing in mind it was pitch black when I came and when I left so would not have seen the signs as no illumination. 

I cannot seem to upload the file of all the notices and pictures etc., it keeps saying the file is too big, the file is on 1 PDF size is 1.71mb but it keeps saying maximum allowed is 4.88mb which mine isnt so I dont know what im doing wrong?

so you were issued with a windscreen ticket?

what do you mean by haven't got the ticket anymore?

do you mean the NTK? as you were caught by anpr as it had in/out pix on it?

The experts will be on in the morning to adfvise how to beat ECP's rubbish, but in the meantime, is this Poundland's own car park? 

 

If so a first port of call could be to get on to the manager of the shop, do they really want to lose customers and all the adverse publicity due to a driver stopping for a few minutes to take care of a young child?!


We could do with some help from you.

I actually phoned the head office of poundland and explained the situation... they insist they don't own the car park and it has nothing to do with them...

 

No sorry it was ANPR....I meant I dont have the actual ticket I bought from the machine.

There is no need to apologise, we were all newbies at one time!

 

The reason for asking you to not always use the quote button is that it can make a thread incredibly long and tedious for caggers to follow. It is useful if you wish to highlight something that has previously been said by underlining a word or phrase or using the bold button or a different colour.


My time as a Police Officer and subsequently time working within the Motor Trade gives me certain insights into the problems that consumers may encounter.

look on the .gov.uk land registry site

cost £3

 

ensure the fleecers have planning permission for their signs and cameras/poles.

have a look on the relevant council webportal planning section

or ring them
