    I have read the newbie thread, just to confirm I am going to use the below template to appeal to this 100 fine:

    Dear Sirs

    Re: PCN No. ....................

    I challenge this 'PCN' as keeper of the car.

    I believe that your signs fail the test of 'large lettering' and prominence, as established in ParkingEye Ltd v Beavis. Your unremarkable and obscure signs were not seen by the driver, are in very small print and the terms are not readable to drivers.

    There will be no admissions as to who was driving and no assumptions can be drawn. You must either rely on the POFA 2012 and offer me a POPLA code, or cancel the charge.

    Should you obtain the registered keeper's data from the DVLA without reasonable cause, please take this as formal notice that I reserve the right to sue your company and the landowner/principal, for a sum not less than 250 for any Data Protection Act breach. Your aggressive business practice and unwarranted threat of court for the ordinary matter of a driver using my car without causing any obstruction nor offence, has caused significant distress to me.

    I do not give you consent to process data relating to me or this vehicle. I deny liability for any sum at all and you must consider this letter a Section 10 Notice under the DPA. You are required to respond within 21 days. I have kept proof of submission of this appeal and look forward to your reply.

    Yours faithfully,

    Please advise if I am correct to go forward with this.

    Thank you.

    It is not a fine. If you think otherwise then you need to read the NEWBIES again in more detail.

    This thread is for information only, not a place for asking questions. If you need help after reading the NEWBIES you should start your own thread, not post here.

    I've moved this to its own thread rather than on the newbies information thread.
    I'm the Board Guide for the Ebay Board , Charities Board , Dosh & Disability , Up Your Income and the Local MoneySaving-England board which means I volunteer to help get your forum questions answered and keep the forum running smoothly. However, do remember, board guides don't read every post. If you spot an illegal or inappropriate post then please report it to (it's not part of my role to deal with this).

    The template is for BPA AOS members, not IPC, which you can check by looking at BPA website if Britannia is a member of>

    You need to make sure you are sending the first stage appeal at the right time after fateful day.
    NEWBIE post tells you when to appeal to Private Parking Company (PPC) depending if it was a postal Notice to Keeper (NTK) or attached to windscreen Parking Charge Notice (PCN).
