    PCM (with permit) appeal help! 17th Jul 17 at 1:09 PM
    I have read the newbies thread and can't make sense of it.
    I got a parking ticket last month for an area that I pay monthly for from a pub landlord. On this particular day my my permit was not clearly visible (but I did have one which was valid). I appealed online immediately and had no response so did the same process again a week later. Again heard nothing until over a month later when I get a letter saying it had risen from £60 to £100 as I had ignored it. I called and explained I had appealed twice which she confirmed they have logged so set it back to £60 advising me to appeal via post (I sent a copy of my permit valid on the date I was fined). As expected they rejected my appeal.
    What should I do now?!

    Get the landlord to intervene. You've paid him your parking fees.

    If you can't understand the NEWBIES sticky, you're going to struggle. But it isn't a skim-read job. You're bordering legal territory, so it won't be like reading the Beano.
    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.

    Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; show him how to catch fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.

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