    Wye Valley PCN

    Wye Valley PCN 5th May 17 at 3:20 PM
    Hi all,

    I am looking for some advice on how to go about appealing a PCN.

    The keeper received a PCN from Parking Eye, for being parked at the Wye Valley Visitors centre.

    The Automatic Number Plate Recognition clocked the information that it was parked for 16 minutes longer than it should, however parking tickets show it was an overstay of 12 minutes after the ticket ran out.

    My current arguments are:

    The driver was a genuine paying customer

    No obvious signs to make clear to driver there is Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) before entering the car park and no barrier on the car park entry or exit.

    And the BPA Codes of Practice, Section 13.4 for grace periods leaving the car park being a minimum of 10 mins

    I have read the BPA PD&S Board meeting minutes from 30th July 2015 of an agreement supporting the 13.4 clause to reflect a mandatory 11 minute grace but I have not found any other information to back this up.

    Thanks in advance!

    Great, thanks! If anybody has the time to look through the appeal for some pointers I would really appreciate it.
