    One hr's assessor costs is circa £60.

    Seems a more realistic cost than £147....but is it low enough to stop the BPA going bust??

    The BPA will probs just put up their membership fees...and the PPCs will have to pay if they still want to be AOS and pursue non-payers via the courts.

    Or jump ship and join the IPC :)

  • In a recent meeting they voted down the proposal to increase membership fees, and these will have now mostly been paid for oct 2013 to sep 2014. If there are too many appeals between now and then they may have to get membership approval for an emergency increase.

    The other option would be for them to bite the bullet and award sanction points to those members flouting the CoP to stop them allowing POPLA appeals which always lose.

    Hmm...caught between a rock and a hard place!

    This would put PE immediately out of business - pleasant surprise for Capita. £54mil down the flusher :)

    Guys, this discussion is really interesting (and I mean that genuinely) but do you think it might be better to start a new thread for meta-discussion of POPLA? This thread is supposed to be for reporting POPLA results.

    Not it's UKCPS' turn:-

    http://forums.pepipoo.com/index.php?showtopic=84894&hl=

    <xxx> (Appellant)
    -v-
    UKCPS Limited (Operator)

    The Operator issued parking charge notice number <xxx> arising out of the presence of <xxx> car park, on <xxx> 2013, of a vehicle with registration mark <xxx>.
    The Appellant appealed against liability for the parking charge.
    The Assessor has considered the evidence of both parties and has determined that the appeal be allowed.
    The Assessor's reasons are as set out.
    The Operator should now cancel the parking charge notice forthwith.

    Reasons for the Assessor's Determination:


    The Operator issued parking charge notice number <xxx> arising out of the presence of <xxx> car park, on <xxx> 2013, of a vehicle with registration mark <xxx> for parking without a valid permit or authority.
    It is the Operator's case that the Appellant's vehicle was parked without a valid permit or authority and this was a breach of the terms and conditions of
    parking as set out on signage of the site.
    The Appellant has made a number of submissions which I do not intend to deal with and will only elaborate on the reason why I am allowing this appeal, namely that the Operator does not have the authority from the landowner to issue parking charge notices.
    The Appellant has asked to see proof that the Operator has the authority to issue parking charges. The Operator has failed to provide a copy of the contract between themselves and the landowner to show that they have the authority to issue parking charge notices and therefore I have not evidence before me to refute the Appellant's submission. The onus is on the Operator to prove their case against the Appellant and on this occasion they have not done so.
    Accordingly, this appeal must be allowed.

    Let me save a bit of time....of the next 50 'successes' at POPLA, about 47 will be on GPEOL.

    This discussion is way more interesting than 'another on GPEOL' , 'another on GPEOL' , 'another on GPEOL' , 'another on GPEOL' , 'another on GPEOL' , 'another on GPEOL' , 'another on GPEOL' , rejected on mitigating circumstances, 'another on GPEOL' , 'another on GPEOL' , 'another on GPEOL' , 'another on GPEOL' , no contract, 'another on GPEOL' ,'another on GPEOL' , 'another on GPEOL' , 'another on GPEOL' ,'another on GPEOL'
