    Parking Eye - Appeal Process 12th Sep 16 at 11:29 AM
    Hi, I have received a fine of £100 for a 10 minute stay in a carpark in Peterborough run by ParkingEye, after pulling into the carpark I realised I didn't have my purse, I text my husband who confirmed I had left it at home and I left the carpark, to return home, no point going shopping without money! I stated in my appeal that I had not left the car and explained what happened, they refused my appeal as they do not have CCTV only camera's on entry and exit so its my word against theirs that I never got out of the car, I would like to appeal again, is there any point?
    Many thanks

    Go for it - and take heart from the fact we've only seen one reported lost court defence on here, at all, in a year or more since more claims started to be made.

    Look at what this poster's wife had to say about her day in court:

    http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?p=72822213#post72822213

    Although she was very nervous before hand, the text she sent me after was "Done and dusted 10 mins it was ace". The judge also awarded £109 costs even though my wife couldn't find the cost schedule we had done.
    Your costs schedule gets filed to the Court and PE with your skeleton, a few days before the hearing (the WS and evidence supporting it, has to be filed earlier than that).

    That's lovely, hope for the same! I have found the minutes thank you and highlighting the relevant sections, will continue to work to build a solid defence I hope.

    So on Saturday I received a copy of PE's defence. They refer to ParkingEye v Beavis and provide a shortened version and a link to the full Judgement. When they get to our actual claim they state 'ParkingEye can confirm that we operate a grace period on sites which give motorists time to enter a car park, park, and establish whether or not they wish to be bound by the terms and conditions of parking. The grace periods are in line with that stipulated by the British Parking Association'.

    In the BPA minutes from July 2015 section 7. Reference from panels it says 'Implications of the 10 minute grace period were discussed and the Board agreed with suggestion by AH that the clause should comply with DfT guidelines in the English book of by-laws to encourage a single standard. Board agreed that as the guidelines state that grace periods need to exceed 10 minutes clause 13.4 should be amended to reflect a mandatory 11 minute grace period.

    That's good and in my favour?

    I haven't read back over the thread, but if you're within the grace period timelines, then yes. Build that BPA statement into your court papers.
    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.

    Hi, I was 10 minutes 48 seconds, I had left my purse at home so unable to pay or go shopping, in this time I was frantically searching for my phone and text my husband who confirmed it was at home.

    Apologies, it is a 'reply to defence', I assume in response to my skeleton defence

    Hi I have received a parking ticket from parking eye in which I appealed using a template I found on here.

    The appeal has been unsuccessful which I knew it would (I was lead to believe it is at this stage the appeal will win).

    What do I do from here in regards to getting them to send a poplar appeal code? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Please read the NEWBIES FAQ sticky, post #3 for information on appealing to POPLA. Any more advice needed, please start a new thread of your own.

    If they turn down your appeal they should automatically send a plopa code, read the newbie thread

    Yay, and they should be ashamed of the wasted time in pursuing this one over 10 minutes which is allowed within the set/required Grace periods.

    Now, perhaps you might consider writing to your MP to tell them about this intimidation. This is a copy of a post by Bargepole:

    "Some action at last:

    http://services.parliament.uk/bills/2017-19/parkingcodeofpractice.html

    This Private Member's Bill has Government and cross-party support, and stands a good chance of making it into statute.

    The full text of the clauses will be published nearer the date of the second reading, but my sources tell me it's something we should support.

    Now would be a good time to write to your MP urging them to support it."





    So glad your case is over, won by you! Well done for keeping the faith.
