    Park with ease contact charge disabled person 4th Jun 17 at 6:29 PM
    Hello, newbie here.
    I've read the newbie post but not sure if it applies so just asking for a bit of help.
    My mum parked at a nature park last week and they use park with ease where you can pay either by machine or online up to 48 hours after you leave. On the day in question mum tried to pay online but the Internet signal wasnt good so couldn't log in. She would try again once she got home... the illness she has causes quite bad memory problems so she forgot by the time she got home. (She also then thought she had paid it because she tried to in the first place)
    The only way we have found out about their 'contract charge' of £25 is we logged into the park with ease site and it says on there!
    They send a text sometimes when you get to the park and leave (bit inconsistent though) but don't send a reminder before the 48 hours is up.
    Anyway just wondering the best way to go about appealing and how to word a letter etc.
    Thank you for reading.

    the only option for appealing is to use the IPC template in the NEWBIES sticky thread (which ALWAYS applies , in each and every case)

    park with disease wont care about the "story" , only the money involved

    a complaint to the landholder may also bear fruit
    Newbies !!
    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se

    You need to know that an appeal will not cancel it, though. Mum needs to know that.

    We are not saying to pay it, we say to fight the scam of private parking tickets from cowboys.

    But Mum needs to know what is involved, which may later involve defending a small claim - yep - they bully people that far, companies like that should be ashamed.

    So read the NEWBIES thread first.
    PRIVATE PCN in England/Wales? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT

    Click on the trail, top of this page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    DON'T read old advice to ignore, unless in Scotland/NI.

    Hi I just wanted to say thank you for the replies. I sent a complaint to the landowner and they have waived the charge.
    So glad I found this forum as mum was ready to just pay it!
    Thank you

    Great result - and in quick-time, taking away, in one fell swoop, months and months of uncertainty and harassment. .

    A landowner cancellation is much more powerful than a POPLA/IAS win, or even a court win. Because not only does it kill the charge dead, but it brings the landowner in to having to deal with the damage their contract with the PPC is doing to not only their customers, but also to their business.

    The more complaints are made to landowners, the quicker the PPC will be given the old heave-ho!
    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.
