 One of the first thing to do is to appeal to the CEO of KFC.


You obviously spent a fair amount of time with them which is what KFC should be encouraging.. Happy customers means they will return. So give the CEO reasons why you stayed as long -because you were enjoying themselves in KFC . But not happy to receive a penalty for doing so.


Explain you are the keeper, and it was the driver who went there [not "you" ]as you don't want to reveal who the driver was as it can be a protection should the case ever go to Court. Query the positioning or the the size of the signage as you didn't see them when you were there.


Also please complete the questions provided by Honeybee so we can see what else can be done to build your case.

In the meantime do not appeal to Smart parking as you may lose the protection afforded by  the Protection of Freedom Act which applies to private car parking.


We suggest you ignore Smart parking but not to ignore the PCN. If you do the homework you shouldn't have to pay them a penny.


Later on we will be asking you for photographs of their signs and whether they have planning permission for them.
