    Change in signage between parking and PCN 12th Oct 17 at 10:09 AM
    Good morning. I have read the Newbies post and so hope that I didn't miss anything there that I should have seen before asking.

    I have received a PCN this morning from Smart Parking. At the time I parked there was definitely no signage that I saw when entering the car park and none in the area of the car park that I parked in (there is an online photo of the area from last month showing this). However, I went back today to take some photos (to prove lack of signage) and since I last went there there are signs everywhere. It seems parking is free for 3 hours but only when you get a ticket. I stayed for half and hour on this occasion. However, given that I have received this one, I am fully expecting to receive multiple similar notices for subsequent visits to the same place over the last couple of weeks. Should I appeal but alter the wording to insufficient signage [U]at the time[U][ given that you can't miss it now!

    Thanks

    just use the BLUE TEXT appeal "as is" , no alterations

    keep your thoughts for POPLA if they fail to cancel

    then read the BPA CoP and see what it says about signage (especially new signage and warnings etc) , because this is one of your main appeal points for POPLA

    do exactly the same for each and every pcn you receive for this site

    ie:- appeal each one in the same way

    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

    Get some ‘screen grabs’ of that now, especially if it is showing the date.
    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.
