    Hi guys. I hope you can help.

    Today I was surprised to receive a Final Reminder from Britannia parking. I have not received any previous notice from them and this is the first I have heard about any parking issues.

    The letter has minimal info. It says the contravention took place on 7th October at a pub in the city. I was there that day as a friend was over from Australia on a flying visit. I don't recall going over on the meter at this time, and this notice does not tell me anything about it. Just the location and date of contravention.

    It's not even clear how much they are requesting from me. All it says is the discounted period has passed and failure to pay could lead to an increase to 160. It says do not pay if you wish to appeal but then offers up no appeal information.

    I have looked around and people mention POPLA codes etc but I'm confused as this notice has nothing on it. I have Asperger's and this is really stressing my head so I naturally want get more info on what I'm supposed to have done and appeal.

    Can you guys advise me please. Some of the threads I've read are so heavy in legal phrasing I can't get the info I need easily

    Nope. I simply sent the template. The only addition I made was to mention that I'd remained a patron of the venue throughout.

    What does puzzle me a bit is the cancellation paragraphs that top and tail what would, without them, be a standard, template rejection of the initial appeal. Hang on to it for the 6 years the PPCs has to potentially pursue this through the court. Nothing to concern you, but some of their admin systems are so rubbish, you never know what files might get mixed up in the future.

    Curiouser and curiouser ....... as they say.

    But a !!!8216;win!!!8217; is a win. Well done.

    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.
