    Premier Park - Brixham

    Premier Park - Brixham 16th Aug 17 at 1:32 PM
    Hi all


    A KEEPER has been served a PCN by Premier Park, in reference to using a car park in Brixham, Devon, while on holiday.


    The letter shows the VEHICLE entering and leaving. THEY paid for 5 hours, but the time from entering, to leaving is 5 hours 23mins. In that regard, ON PAPER it could be suggested that the driver overstayed.


    However, while that is the case, it took a good 10/15 mins for the driver to find a space, plus getting the kids out of the car, then maybe another 5/10 mins queuing for a ticket. It was a small tight busy car park, that was extremely busy with people queuing for a ticket


    So while the VEHICLE was in the grounds of the car park for over 5 hours, the VEHICLE might have been within 5 hours according to the purchased ticket. Of course the driver has binned it now, and no way of knowing.


    Can he/she contest this?


    Thanks in advance

    and the answer (aS USUAL) is in the newbies STICKY THREAD and also in other posts by COUPON-MAD on this topic

    in short

    THE APPEAL IS SAVED AS A PDF AND UPLOADED UNDER OTHER on the popla website

    there is no need to answer anything other than THE KEEPER and I dont see why any valid telephone number should be provided either

    no paperwork is filled in , so the popla pages are irrelevant as they are not used

    I realise what the newbie thread says, which is what I referred to, it was more about the actual content.


    For instance - if a keeper@email.co.uk is added, would I miss out on emailed info about the case?! Presumably I should make up a vague address.

    the keeper should give full name and address details , including postcode, the PPC already has those details from the DVLA so why hide ?

    you presume correctly , use a BRAND NEW gmail email address for this saga (they are free)

    I have seen several detailed explanations of this process by coupon mad in recent months on here in answer to these questions - have you read them ?

    have you read the parking pranksters blog on this from 2 years ago ?

    ps:- the keeper is a motorist , otherwise why would they own a vehicle ?

    the NEWBIES sticky thread does not even mention the word MOTORIST

    it also says you dont have to answer all of their questions too

    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

    I'll try to find the parking prankster article/blog


    I only read the newbie thread which was excellent, but not so clear on this point. Which is fair enough.

    coupon mad does tell you the system is horrible

    the prankster blog is here http://parking-prankster.blogspot.co.uk/2015/09/new-popla-process.html , but its a mish mash of their horrible system anyway

    the NEWBIES sticky thread says do not reveal the driver , nothing is said about the motorist at all ; but I am sure that CM has posted what to write in their spurious boxes in other posts that you have not read

    the pdf appeal will contain the pcn ref , the popla ref , the name and address and postcode of the keeper , as well as the appeal itself

    the online boxes under OTHER are just a means to an end , but heavily weighted against the apellant
