    Help with Popla appeal against PE

    Help with Popla appeal against PE 9th Sep 13 at 11:49 AM
    Hi,

    I wonder if anyone could help me with a Popla appeal against a PE charge? I'm new to this forum, though I did look through lots of the posts before my original appeal to PE which was of course rejected. My ticket is for an overstay in a free supermarket car park. I disagree with the charge because it is so much - 85 for a short overstay in a free car park! Had they levied a more reasonable charge I would've paid it but 85 seems unjust to me. There were mitigating circumstances on the day, though I understand that these might not help me with Popla so I have no real idea how to word an appeal and the whole thing has me v worried and stressed

    Any help or advice would be really appreciated.

    Hi all, just wanted to say a huge thank you- Morrisons cancelled the ticket with apology. Could not have got that result without your help & it really is appreciated. I didn't get a response to the email, though they obviously got it. Initially I received a letter from PE asking for proof of my visit (despite it saying in the email that I had none). The following day I received another letter ominously ordering me to return to the store in question & ask for 'Ray'. No surname given, just Ray! I was slightly nervous but Ray turned out to be the store manager & he arranged for the ticket to be cancelled.

    Another victory for this forum! Many thanks for all your help- you are amazing!!

    I was really into the 'complaint mode zone' when I wrote that one, must use it again!

    I will link your case to the PPC scam 'complaint successes' Hall of Fame sticky here:

    Just a quick note to say I followed this thread having received a ticket for an inadvertent overstay at Morrisons, was getting ready to send the template letter to Parking Eye, but before doing so, emailed the CEO addresses as above, they contacted PE, and agreed to cancel the ticket as a gesture of goodwill and are hoping that I continue to shop with them. Big thumbs up to MSE.

    Proof writ large that 'complain' should be a parallel strategy to the appeals' process. Well done profscooter.

    I suspect Morrisons are fed up with PE - I know I would be if I was a top Manager of a Supermarket or large retail chain. Morrisons do get a lot of complaints from here.
