    Parking ticket in own bay No Permit - appeal rejected

    Parking ticket in own bay No Permit - appeal rejected 6th Sep 16 at 8:15 PM

    I rent a flat in a 2012 built estate, and I have a parking space with the flat, and a valid permit however one day when leaving early in the morning to work I have found a pcn behinde the wipers, I was leaving at 7am and the pcn was from 06.19am on the 03/09/16. The reason for the sign is because I have not clearly displayed my permit. Usually the permit is stuck to the window, however I had my windscreen replaced about a month ago and I had it loose on the dashboard, I think it dropped because of the wind as i closed the door the day before and then i closed the windows with my key. It dropped on the gears if you look closely on the picture you can see the corner of the permit.

    I have lived in the estate for 11 months now and never had any problems with pcns, I have sent back a letter saying i have a contract , and a valid permit, explained to them what happened however they have rejected my appeal stating -

    thank you for your correspondence regarding the above pcn, i have considered your case carefully and have decided to reject your appeal on the following grounds -

    You parked in a manner whereby you agreed to pay a charge, the parking attendant recorded that the vehicle was parked without a valid permit.

    parking control are contracted to manage the parking within this area and the parking charge notice has been issued in accordance with this parking management scheme. the signage is in the area and it is clear and inform motorist of the restrictions the parking is managed under that enforcement action will be taken for parking in this manner.

    The restrictions require that a valid permit is displayed at all times where that is a pcm resident permit visitors or contractors. it is not disputed that you hold a valid permit, however if this is not displayed in the vehicle the operative is unable to determine whether they are permited to park here, it is the drivers responsibility to ensure the permit is visible and secure prior to leaving the vehicle unattended , as no permit was displayed in the car it was therefore liable to enforcement action.


    When you leave my estate you have a main estate road, and two cars were parked there over night and it does state that you are not allowed to park there aswell, i have taken pictures as evidence why do i get a fine in my own bay if there is no bays on the main road, if i knew i would have left it on the main road. Im sure he passed the vehicles why did he not pc them?

    is there anything i can do?

    please help as im lost now, it was a one off i have never received any type of fine before so im angry it was for parking in my own estate.

    the comapny is called parking controll managment uk ltd

    the also are with dmuk and ipc

    Yes, they have either lost the case down the back of the filing cabinet as they have too many on the go, or it will surface later this year or later. Keep everything in a file.
    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:
    Top of the page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.

    They have probably filed it under "too difficult". Courts have been coming down hard on parking companies harassing bona fide residents.
