Didn’t receive Notice to owner /increased fine

Hi , I’ve already posted about a parking fine I’m appealing against .  I lost the first appeal and was told a notice to owner letter would be sent as I was driving my husband’s car .  We have not seen any sign of this letter but today received a Charge Certificate  from the London Borough of Redbridge saying a notice was actually issued on 8 Jan .  As a result of not hearing from us , the penalty charge of £80 has been increased with a £40 charge certificate surcharge totaling £120.  The letter also threatens additional costs if it goes to county court .  I have read on other threads that if it’s a local authority parking ticket , you’ve nothing to lose by continuing to appeal as costs do not go up .  What should I do ?  I still feel strongly that the original ticket was unfair as the sign was misleading .
