    MPS PCN Advice

    MPS PCN Advice 14th Jun 17 at 5:45 PM
    Hi all,

    New to the site and looking for some advice after getting a PCN from Millennium Parking Services while on a customer site for work. The customer is in a business park in Swansea and on the day in question their car park was full. Not wanting to get a PCN i didn't park in any of the other car parks but instead found an area which had no markings on the road or signage and thought i was safe, unfortunately not.

    I read the newbies thread and as it was a work car (which they in turn lease) and not my own i went about appealing to MPS with pictures taken on the day of where the car was, where the nearest signs were in relation to the car (the closest was behind a tree) and stating the lack of markings on the road.

    Today i have received their response and no big shock they have rejected my appeal. They say that the signage is clear, which it isn't you can't read it from the car and it's only on the entrances to the small car park areas and not on the road ways, so i have agreed to the charge. They go on to say that the signage meets the requirements of the IPC code of practice. I have read through this and don't see how. They are not readable from the car, not anywhere near where i park and definitely not on the entrance to the site as it says they should be.

    Obviously now the options are either to pay (which is not on the cards), appeal to the IAS or do nothing.

    What would the advice of the group be?

    Thanks in advanced.

    First thing to do is edit your post to remove the details you have gifted regarding identifying the driver.

    The newbies FAQ thread advises what you do after getting your appeal rejected by an IAS member

    Thanks for coming back to me Quentin.

    I'll look over the Newbies thread again as i must have missed that part!

    What details are you referring to? Haven't i already named the driver when appealing to the company directly?

    Post #3 of the sticky, it says there is no IAS stage worth trying, it's made pretty clear to come back if you get a court claim.

    As it's Millennium in Swansea, you should search the forum for those two words - LOADS of cases and a resident expert.

    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.
