    POPLA appeal successful, then reviewed & failed 3rd Oct 16 at 6:40 PM
    I have a appealed a PCN for not displaying a valid parking ticket as I have photographic and witness evidence that a valid ticket was visible on my dashboard.

    Last week my appeal was allowed. Result.

    Today I get an email from POPLA "some evidence was missed by the assessor" and they will review the appeal. Then I get another email saying the Appeal decision is on the Portal. It isn't but the previous Decision has been removed. I rang to seek clarity and was told I had now lost the Appeal.

    This seems unfair as I thought the decision was final and can't get a third opinion. Can the parking operator influence the decision or request a review?

    What can I do now? Pay up and put it down to (bad) experience?

    Its been ten days since POPLA said they were posting out their revised appeal verdict. The web-site has been showing Operator Evidence submission all that time. I will complain if they do reject my Appeal and would like your help on grounds for a successful Appeal.

    My thoughts are:

    Appeal meant to be final, and I have print out saying appeal allowed.

    How did review get initiated?

    Have I seen the evidence that was "missing"?

    What were grounds to ignore previous assessor statement that he could see a ticket on the NSGL photos.

    Why were my photos ignored?

    Why was my witness statement ignored?

    Any other grounds to Appeal?

    If I lose I 'll be quite happy to take my evidence to court.

    DON'T read old advice to ignore, unless in Scotland/NI.
