    ..... Although I can't see how they came to those figures for compensation/cost to their business!

    Exactly!! You can't see how they came to those figures for compensation for one reason and one reason only

    Because they didn't come to those figures for compensation and they can't justify the charge as a loss.

    Which is precisely why you should appeal and why you will win ;)

    Aldi may get it cancelled as you spent £42 in their store that day (we believe there is a secret minimum £30+ spend clause in their contract with P E before they will help their customer)

    BUT there have been many cases in which by the time a definitive answer was received it was too late to appeal

    So do not wait for Aldi to come back to you - get your appeal in anyway using the template appeal in the NEWBIES thread and if PE reject it - you get the chance to beat them at POPLA and cost them £27 into the bargain - while you pay Zilch!!

    Make sure you also go and direct to the local Aldi store manager asap. Go in and ask for them, armed with your PCN and receipt. They can get it cancelled immediately and this is the quickest route. Rachel is a waste of time and obnoxious.

    Check out their fire exits.
    You also mentioned this on another thread.


    What breaches have you seen? Have you raised a complaint with Aldi or the Council Env Health dept (responsible enforcing authority)

    I marched into aldi today armed with my charge notice and receipt.
    Demanded I spoke to the manager and spoke very loudly creating a proper scene safe to say he wanted to me go into there back room!

    Brilliant result caitlynsmummy, the power of the customer complaint. And after all you are their customer, spending your hard-earned so they can generate profit. Persecuting customers via an agent is both counterproductive and cowardly!

    I'd have loved to have been a fly on the walk of your branch of Aldi earlier to day. Well done, and now you're likely to feature in Coupon-mad's Complaints' Hall of Fame. :)
    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.

    Well done Caitlynsmummy. If a few more store managers reported upwards that they are getting hassle and grief from legitimate customers, Aldi might get the message that PE are bad for business and reconsider.

    Indeed and this is sooo common a complaint that caitlynsmummy features as 'complaint to Aldi #16' here:

    A work colleagues got a parking charge notice from PE but from a different carpark safe to say I will be helping her sort it using everyone's advice in here and the newbie templates ect.

    I think I've turned into a parking vigilante!! :-)
