    Parking Eye in Hospital

    Parking Eye in Hospital 20th Apr 17 at 8:40 AM

    I was driving a passenger with a disabled badge. We stopped in the parking bays 'Drop Off & Blue Badge' outside the Royal Free Hospital in London.

    I submitted my informal appeal stating that the vehicle had a disabled badge on display and asking PE to cancel it or I will appeal to PALS.

    I received a reply on Easter Monday! At 7am! Obviously it was a generic reply with the letter attached again very generalised and automated!

    Shall I appeal to POPLA on that basis and also right to PALS?

    Much appreciated!

    Hi Dadsma

    Thanks for your message, sorry just seen this now

    I submitted my POPLA appeal on Sunday night, I didn't see C-M's post about asking me to post the appeal with images. I didn't want to miss the deadline.

    Oh OP, You had at least another 3 days to submit the appeal. I hope you haven't compromised your chances by submitting before necessary and missing out on the opportunity for the forum to help refine and focus the most likely points for a win.

    As a minimum I hope you removed the outdated and irrelevant points and re- numbered the remaining ones as advised.

    POPLA will inform you whether PE decide not to contest the appeal, in which case you win by default, as happened to me recently. Otherwise PE will send evidence to POPLA and a copy should be sent to you for your comments and challenge to be taken into account before the adjudication decision is made. If that happens please come back here for advice.

    As a second possibility for cancellation you can also escalate your complaint to the hospital as advised, especially as it involves a blue badge holder. Their response so far has been disgusting.

    Good luck and please keep us informed.

    Yes I did number as correctly advised and removed the irrelevant points

    I added the photos also and made them more relevant as poor lighting at night also...

    Will keep you posted!!

    Parking Eye Ltd have told us they do not wish to contest the Appeal. This means that your Appeal is successful and you do not need to pay the parking charge.

    Yours sincerely

    POPLA Team

    Thanks to everyone that helped and a bit thanks to Dadsma, couldn't have done it without all your help. Cheers once again!

    Great news! Another one bites the dust!
    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.
