    PCN Manchester Urban Exchange

    PCN Manchester Urban Exchange 7th Dec 17 at 4:35 PM
    Hi everyone,

    I have received a Charge Notice from Highview Parking as the registered keeper of my vehicle which was parked for 1 hour and 11 minutes at Urban Exchange, Manchester. This is a small retail and leisure development which used to offer 3 hours free parking, the driver saw the signs and noted it says 2 hours free parking instead of 3 (there was no other clear signage of these newer changes). Now just discovered this has AGAIN changed to 1 hour free parking and then you have to get a parking ticket or voucher from one of the shops after that? My mum and I purchased some items from Aldi but was not made aware of having to have a voucher upon checkout.

    I am shocked at the attempt to get £95 or £55 if paid within 14 days for the sake of 11 minutes over the FREE hour??? Anyway, before research being carried out on the threads on here an appeal has already been made via the web link provided in the letter. Just wondering if this would still be able to be taken further? No response as of yet as the appeal was only sent a couple of hours ago.

    Any advice would be appreciated, as stated I have looked through other posts but most other people had been through the numerous threads on here first (clever!).

    TIA

    What exactly did you say in the appeal?
    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.

    Your best bet is to complain to Aldi.
    Take the receipt for your purchases and point out that it's highly unlikely that you'll shop there again as parking is to expensive.

    Have you already told the PPC who the driver is?

    Throughout here you are advised never to reveal who was driving

    You need to edit your op to remove details of who was driving

    Yes, much better.

    As Quentin said, it's is to protect you - the keeper.

    Highview should be easy at PoPLA.

    Are you able to show us what was said in the appeal to see if we can rescue anything out of it for you, as HV don’t rely on PoFA, it is a slam dunk winner, provided the driver hasn’t been explicitly identified.

    Yes I can provide this, how should I go about this? Don't want to tarnish it further if there's a chance it can be rescued so just being cautious.

    Just copy and paste it here. Redact any personal detail, or any that might identify you like VRM or PCN ref no.

    To whom it may concern, I have received a PCN for parking at this address, I read the terms and conditions on the sign and have parked here previous times before, which states parking is free for the period of up to two hours. I shopped in the Aldi store located in this establishment within this time frame so I am confused as to why I have received this notice, could you please advise as I feel this has been incorrectly issued.

    This was what was put on the appeal response for the original PCN

    Sorry I had some issues accessing my account !! Just an update I've received another PCN as the registered keeper of the vehicle for the week before the previous PCN. How long does the company have to inform you of this? As it has been 21 days from the date shown, from what I've read in the newbies thread it's 14 days.

    Only if you don’t identify the driver, otherwise they have 6 years to issue and pursue their invoice.

    Is this in relation to the original PCN or the other one I've mentioned about with the late time frame ?
