    Tower road, Newquay, Again.. 8th Sep 16 at 2:37 PM
    Hi All -

    Just a quick one - hoping for an some experienced advice on whether or not its worth me pursuing a popla appeal.

    So holiday in Cornwall = visited the tower road car park 3 times - two of which resulted in a fine.

    I paid for the 8am - 6pm
    I arrived at 11am on both occasions and left at 7, and thought that if I paid for the 8am to 6pm that would give me the equivalent in hours - in hindsight this was naive and stupid but that's all I have.
    I'm not one for enjoying fines, so please believe me when I say I really did think the 8 - 6 would give me the equivalent hours.
    In Newcastle - parking tariffs leave nothing to the imagination - it just seems they have left theirs open to interpretation so - people fall into this trap - or I could just be me lol.

    So I have already appealed to PE with a template from here, And now I'm at the point where I either need to pay the the reduce fine or appeal further.
    If its pointless me appealing to POPLA I would rather pay the reduced fine and be done with it. But if you think I could appeal successfully I would go all the way.

    Thanks for your time, and I would appreciate any feedback.

    Thanks

    Tim

    OK save it as a PDF and put it under 'OTHER' making sure it uploads & shows as a little 'bin' icon. Don't answer questions in any other POPLA boxes.

    Awesome will do.

    Just for interest I received this of the cornwall council planning dept

    Hi Mr Leigh,

    Thanks for your e-mail below, I can’t locate anything within our system for this. If it was something you wanted enforcement to investigate you would need to fill in their enforcement form, I will attach a link to the website below:

    Regards,

    Emma

    Just for reference regarding planning permission for signage and cameras...

    An email I recieved back from Cornwall councli

    Dear Mr Leigh

    Thank you for your email of the 22 September 2016 to Cornwall Council regarding the car park in Tower Road, Newquay.

    I have contacted our Parking Services Team who have confirmed that the car park in Tower Road is privately owned and therefore any outstanding parking fines and/or appeals would need to be taken up with the private company – Parking Eye.

    Planning permission is not required for the installation of ANPR cameras and signage within a car park is usually there to display charges and conditions of motorists parking within the car park and is not usually subject to planning permission. However the link below to the Planning Portal provides further information about adverts and signs and if you believe the signs to be a breach of planning this can be reported to our Enforcement Team to investigate.

    https://www.planningportal.co.uk/info/200130/common_projects/4/adverts_and_signs

    http://www.cornwall.gov.uk/environment-and-planning/planning/enforcement/

    As the car park is privately owned and not run by Cornwall Council we are unable to investigate your complaint and you may wish to contact the British Parking Association.

    Kind Regards

    The signs need Advertising Consent under "The Town and Country Planning (Control of Advertisements) (England) Regulations 2007"

    Or perhaps that should be 'Nice two'.
    We cannot provide you with a silver bullet to get you out of this. You have to be in for the long run, and need to involve yourself in research and work for you to get rid of this. It is not simple. We will help, but can't do it for you.
