    Euro Car Parks - PCN Help

    Euro Car Parks - PCN Help 11th Sep 17 at 10:52 AM
    Hi, sorry for the noob post. I have read the newbies guide, but my situation feels weird and i'd like some advice.

    I just opened a PCN letter from Euro Car Parks for "No valid pay & display/permit was purchased". Turns out this is the second notice as I was away when the first one came in.

    The issue is, my gym parking is managed by ECP. The gym offers validation for registered members when you get in you talk to them at the reception and you put in your reg details on some device. So I took this letter to the gym and they emailed me a biometric time stamp which shows i was in the gym at the time the ECP said they are issuing me the ticket for.

    I have gone on their website to appeal with this evidence but the upload button doesn't work so I have to send a written letter. Thing is I'm !!!!ed i have to go through this stress and I think that the gym should handle it rather than me paying for postage and going through all this stress.

    Should I go back and get angry at them or do appeal, and what should i say to ECP?

    it is possible that I may have accidentally written the number plate of my other car as I am not the keeper of this car but I am insured on it

    Does anyone have any tips about the next steps I need to take next to resolve this? So far I haven't entered into any correspondence with them.

    If you have read the newbies FAQ then it makes it clear all situations are the same.

    And shows you how to deal with this initially.

    You need to address this and cannot rely on the gym! If court action comes it won't be the gym defending it! Hopefully you still have time to appeal with the object of getting a popla code

    So go back to the newbies FAQ, See how to deal with the PPC as well as keeping on complaining to the gym

    You shouldn't be naming the driver

    The FAQ shows you exactly what to say in your appeal. The idea is to get a popla code!

    There's no need.

    Use the blue text appeal in the newbies thread
