I have received a Notice to keeper for a parking charge based on images from Automatic number plate recognition. The image of the vehicle purportedly entering the site is pure black apart from a small image of the number plate at the very top no other details can be seen. The second image of the vehicle leaving contains a partial image of the rear of the vehicle and a section of road surface.


Can anyone advise if there are legal requirements to what images being used in this manner should conform to?

    the VRN section is photographed by infa red (or summot) and that is readable by their equipment


    much the same as the stuff the police use

    No legal requirements, you are barking up the wrong tree but there are other trees that are the right ones if this is a BPA company offering POPLA appeal.

    Read the NEWBIES thread.

  • Hi thanks for your reply. The ppc is parkingeye at town quay Southampton. I have read all the newbies threads and am putting a email together from the templates. I just naively thought the images should at least conform to a minimum standard.

    check the signage , is it "x" hrs parking or "x" hrs stay after passing the ANPR cameras , remember grace periods apply , but PE take the readings from the entry/exit cameras

  • Hi, the signs state parking tariff for xxxHrs . Plus a sperate sign stating if you need more than 15 mins pick up/ drop off the parking tariffs apply. Does this wording make a difference?

    well more info might help




    how long were you parked for
    how long did you pay for
    and the times shown on the letter = "x" hrs + "x" mins


    please fill in the blanks

    You can't email an appeal, has to be done online and there is nothing to put together, the NEWBIES thread already has the template short appeal (blue writing). Of course only call yourself the registered keeper on their drop-down menu and keep a screenshot before hitting submit.

    Town Quay, at POPLA stage, is easy enough as there are several examples already here. Don't look at any threads more than six months old though and come back with your POPLA draft at the time, when you get rejected. Easy enough to see off PE here if you stick with the script.

    Ah, good old Southampton Town Quay.

    This is part of the Associated British Ports (ABP) Southampton Dock Estate and parking there is subject to harbour byelaws.

    This means that ParkingEye have no statutory right to use the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 to claim unpaid parking charges from the vehicle's keeper. Even though their Notice to Keeper may claim otherwise, they can only pursue the driver. However you have no obligation to tell them who the driver was :)

    Make sure that all communication with ParkingEye is from the "keeper" not the driver (e.g. "the driver parked" not "I parked" etc.)
  • Thanks for all the replies. It will come as no surprise my appeal was rejected and I am now working on my popla appeal
