    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.

    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.
    PCN in a private car park in England/Wales? DON'T PAY IT BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT

    Do NOT read old advice to ignore, unless in Scotland/NI.

    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:
