    And the TRUTH really is ??? BPA v ISPA 20th Sep 16 at 11:19 AM
    The recent statement by the ISPA as seen on this forum

    http://ispa.co.uk/userfiles/files/ISPA%20Notice%20of%20Board%20decision%20to%20cease %20operating.pdf

    "It is with great regret that the ISPA board is announcing that a decision was taken at an emergency meeting of ISPA on 13 September 2016 that the board would cease its work on 23 September 2016"

    "The board took the view that these challenges were so
    great that it could not continue to operate and should be wound up"


    The link to this statement on the ISPA News site has since been removed.

    TODAY 20th September 2016 .... STATEMENT BY THE BPA

    BPA seeks new Chair for ISPA
    http://www.britishparking.co.uk/News/bpa-seeks-new-chair-for-ispa

    With this contradiction comes concern that once again nobody seems to know what they are doing.

    Therefore will Patrick Troy give the new Chair of the ISPA FULL AUTHORITY to investigate the WHOPLA situation and unjust decisions
    Or will the BPA take this as an opportunity to brush under the carpet the grave error they made in allowing Wright Hassall to adjudicate appeals ???

    I liked the bit in the BPA statement that reads "The Chair is appointed by the BPA, the government and a representative of the consumer sector." I wonder if the government knows about this vacancy?

    The Full Statement by the ISPA

    It is with great regret that the ISPA board is announcing that a decision was taken at an emergency meeting of ISPA on 13 September 2016 that the board would cease its work on 23 September 2016.

    The board did not take this decision lightly as it feels since it was formed in February 2014 it has done some very good work to help to ensure the independence and effectiveness of the appeal service known as PoPLA.

    It has done this despite having none of the formal powers oversight bodies would normally expect to have, operating on a limited budget and working in a climate of uncertainty which meant it was never able to be sure how long it would be funded.

    In recent months, however, the board has faced a number of challenges arising out of its lack of powers and its uncertain existence.

    The board took the view that these challenges were so
    great that it could not continue to operate and should be wound up.
    ISPA has continued to lobby government to put in place an adequately funded body with legal powers of oversight.

    ISPA did not want to do anything that would make such a body’s
    establishment less likely but, in the end, concluded it would not be fair to motorists, consumers and other stakeholders to continue when it could not carry out some of its core duties.

    The board wishes to thank all those stakeholders who have contributed to the positive work it has undertaken in the past and who have supported its achievements.

    a twitter feed is , they say they "are having problems" with thier website


    Twitter quote from BPA


    20 September 2016
    BPA seeks new Chair for ISPA






    The British Parking Association (BPA) has received Nicola Mullany’s resignation as Chair of The Independent Scrutiny Board for Parking Appeals (ISPA) and the process of finding a replacement is underway. The Chair is appointed by the BPA, the government and a representative of the consumer sector.
    Patrick Troy, BPA CEO said: “We thank Nicola for her contributions as Chair of ISPA and wish her all the best for the future.”
    ISPA will continue to scrutinise POPLA to ensure that the service it delivers continues to be independent and be seen to be independent. POPLA was established by the BPA in 2012 by agreement with Government, which led the way in delivering independent redress for the consumer.




    please can someone explain how the BPA can be seeking out a new chair for the The Independent Scrutiny Board for Parking Appeals ?

    Well the link to the ISPA notice that was taken down has now reappeared ( http://ispa.co.uk/userfiles/files/ISPA%20Notice%20of%20Board%20decision%20to%20cease %20operating.pdf ) together with an announcement by the BPA Ltd (don't forget the Ltd) that they are looking to replace only Nicola Mullaney, this being despite the fact that the notice said that all of the board were having it away on their toes.

    Just to recap, this is how the relationship between the BPA Ltd, Nicola Mullaney, the ISPA board and the ISPA website worked.

    1) Nicola Mullaney received a salary of 30k from the BPA Ltd, and the office where she conducted ISPA business was inside the BPA Ltd's offices.

    2) The board member's responsibilities were to turn up at any board meetings that were convened by Nicola Mullaney whenever the meagre resources given to them by the BPA Ltd allowed them to. The board members did not receive a salary and could only claim expenses directly related to their ISPA work.

    3) The BPA Ltd host, own and have full control over what is and is not hosted on the ISPA website.

    Makes you wonder who took the notice down in the first place don't it? And of course it's pure coincidence that it reappeared at the same time as the BPA Ltd's statement concerning the replacement of Nicola Mullaney.
