    PCM PCN Residential Parking 17th Jul 17 at 5:18 PM
    I received a PCN ticket on my windscreen for 'failing to display a valid permit'. I had been given a temporary code to display on my dashboard until one arrived through the post however it genuinely fell off the dashboard. Do I have grounds for an appeal or should I even appeal in the first place since I read they are unenforceable?

    Thank you in advance for the advice.

    What does your lease/AST say about parking? This will have primacy of contract and trumps anything the parking scammers say.

    This is what judges say about this sort of thing.

    Please read the Sticky thread for NEWBIES and wait for the NTK. When it arrives, send the IPC (black) template you will find there, then read up what to do if/when it is rejected.

    What happened when you complained to the landowner?

    Only a judge can tell you whether it is or not. Not a forum, not your mates, not your work colleagues and not a man down the pub.

    In your place I would work on the basis that they are enforceable - as Barry Beavis found out in the Supreme Court a couple of years ago, and as 78 NHS workers seem to have done in Cardiff County Court just a few days ago.
    We cannot provide you with a silver bullet to get you out of this. You have to be in for the long run, and need to involve yourself in research and work for you to get rid of this. It is not simple. We will help, but can't do it for you.

    Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; show him how to catch fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.

    Are you a tenant or a leaseholder? What does your AST/Lease say about parking? Exact wording please. Do you have a dedicated space ot is it a free for all?

    It is most certainly worth fighting, PPCs rarely collect when residents fight back, some even make the PPC pay for their hubris.

    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.
