    Scotland Flashpark PCN

    Scotland Flashpark PCN 9th Jul 17 at 11:57 PM
    Hi there.

    Looking for some advise. The usual Flashpark PCN. I am in Scotland and have been issued with one of theses. The parking is sort of shared between a restraunt and a part of it on the same land is for resident parking. One of my workers was to do a job in one of the homes and when my employee went there, there was only one space left for the resident parking which was took by a customer of the restraunt. My employee phoned the resident and was told to just park in one of the other spaces as they shouldn't have parked there. So my employee did so. Only to receive this in the post a week or so later. The resident had went to the restraunt owner to explain this and in return he was very rude back to her. The only reason I am asking for you help with this as someone else told me the law on this is now changed so I don't now what is right or wrong.

    Kind Regards

    The law has not changed in Scotland (and the law in England is hardly new - 2012).

    It would have been quicker to have just searched the forum for the word 'Scotland' rather than start a new thread because the position has not changed. Ignore it. The company can't be liable.

    This is also covered in the NEWBIES FAQS thread you'll have read before posting, the one at the top asking all newbies to read it first. Scotland is covered.

    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.

    Hi there
    I had read them but the dates on them were from a few years ago. I just wanted to make sure.
    I had ignored it but they then sent me £85 invoice and said I cannot appeal now. Just wanted to check.
    Many thanks

    The foot of post #1, for example, shows this:

    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.

    How did that become "a few years ago?"

    I also say at the start of the NEWBIES thread:

    IF YOU WERE WONDERING: ''IS THIS UP TO DATE AS THIS THREAD IS FROM 2013?''

    ...YES, IT IS. SEE THE DATE LAST EDITED IN 2017 AS SHOWN AT THE BOTTOM OF EVERY POST...
