    My wife has received notification from the Parking Crooks to say her appeal was rejected because the signs say she should have pushed a yellow button when parking. Not sure whether she did or not, probably not, but before going to POPLA I need to know what action pushing that yellow button triggers as the PCN was obviously issued based on a remote camera as an attendant would have seen the blue badge displayed in the car. The bottom line was that under the terms of the signage she was entitled to pay for 2 hours and receive a a further 1 hour and we returned to the car within 3 hours so no revenue was lost by the car park.

    If the landowner does not cancel write this up on the museum's website and Facebook pages. Also get your next MP involved as n[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]ine times out of ten these tickets are scams.[/FONT]

    Parliament is well aware of the MO of these private parking companies, many of whom are former clampers, and on 15th March 2019 a Bill was enacted to curb the excesses of these shysters. Codes of Practice are being drawn up, an independent appeals service will be set up, and access to the DVLA's date base more rigorously policed, persistent offenders denied access to the DVLA database and unable to operate.

    Hopefully life will become impossible for the worst of these scammers, but until this is done you should still complain to your MP, citing the new legislation.

    Just as the clampers were finally closed down, so hopefully will many of these Private Parking Companies.[/FONT]

    I have written to the CEO of National Maritime Museum by the time he/she replies we shall be near to the next election and I shall see who my new MP is as the existing one for this area Sir Nicholas Soames is not standing again. I obviously cannot do that until Mid December but as this has been rumbling on since early September a few more weeks shouldnt be a problem, unless there is a time limit for appealing to POPLA.

    Time limit for Popla is say 32 days or less from the rejection of the appeal which is when the popla code was generated

    So add 32 days onto the date of the rejection letter for the deadline to appeal

    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

    POPLA appeal templates are in post #3 of the NEWBIES thread but this is NOT what to say at all!
    no revenue was lost by the car park.
    PRIVATE 'PCN'? DON'T PAY BUT DON'T IGNORE IT (except N.Ireland).

    This is still ongoing so would be grateful of more advice.

    After appealing to Premier Parking and it was rejected I wrote to the Museum, owners of the land. Unfortunately they took a long time to reply passing the letter from department to department. After receiving their reply which only basically gave details of how the system worked but didnt adress the PCN I appealled to POPLA but the number was not recognised as it was out of date. They suggested requesting another number from Premier so I wrote during December but as yet no response from them. How do I move on and what is my next step? Should I write to Premier stating that they had not replied or what should I do.

    You missed your PoPLA appeal filing date.

    Redx explained the time limit in post #15.

    Ignore all debt collectors letters and post again on this thread if/when you receive either a Letter of Claim or official court correspondence and, after having read post #2 of the NEWBIES thread, you still need help.

    Completely misleading advice from POPLA - there is no prospect of a new POPLA code from the PPC, and probably no prospect of a reply, total waste of time even asking. Snooze and I'm afraid you lose, sorry.
    Please note, we are not a legal advice forum. I personally don't get involved in critiquing court case Defences/Witness Statements, so unable to help on that front. Please don't ask.

    I didnt snooze as you say I was waiting for the Museum to reply to enable them to make a decision and git it cancelled which I expected. They took so long that the number ran out of time, am I so wrong.

    You had an opportunity of over four weeks to appeal to PoPLA but did not do so. You are now in ignore mode unless you get real court papers in the next six years unless you can get the landowner to cancel the PCN.
