NCP Stratford International - parked without paying correct amount

Hi all, I've read through the newbie thread and looked at other threads too but cannot find what I am looking for.

I received a parking fine of £100.00 dated 30/07/23 for 'parked without paying correct amount for the duration of your stay', at Stratford international station. The car park uses number recognition. 

I have proof of payment of £6.95, which was the amount displayed on the screen when I entered my vehicle registration number. However, I parked for over 6 hours, which now looking back at the tariff board should have cost me £8.45.

I am not sure how to appeal this, as I cannot say they are 'at no loss', as technically it should have cost me £1.50 more.

Please could some kindly advise on how to proceed with the appeals process.

Thank you!

    I know this car park and it is a pay on exit.  Did you try to pay on entry, thereby receiving the £6.95 charge?

    You just appeal it as keeper (not implying who the driver was and NOT talking about "I paid" or "I did this/that) and you'll win.

    Same as any other NCP station thread.  Search the forum.  No keeper liability.

    PRIVATE 'PCN'? DON'T PAY BUT DON'T IGNORE IT (except N.Ireland).
