    Ricoh Arena Parking Charge

    Ricoh Arena Parking Charge 25th Nov 17 at 12:48 PM
    Hi all,

    Firstly please forgive my naivety of the terms and process used in forums. I have read the newbies topic and I am still a little unsure how to go about my appeal.

    Here is a little background to why i want to appeal (along with the cost). This will be the 5th time (yes 5th) that park watch have issued a parking charge of 100 since 2016. Previous appeals have failed, even with the usual 'signage' issues etc highlighted.......

    I over stayed my welcome on the site by 15 minutes (5 hour stay) so they issued the notice.

    Am i correct in thinking my first appeal should be the letter posted on the newbie page around signage etc?

    I also feel 100 is not reprobative of a loss of 100 to the landowner, is it worth including that as well?

    Once again, sorry for my naivety, any help would be great,

    The Newbies FAQ thread has a template to use for your initial appeal. Send it as is

    Throughout here you are advised never to reveal who was driving.

    You need to edit your post to remove details of who was driving

    The ppcs monitor this forum and can use your posts against you

    If you have inadvertently used your real name as your forum name you need to get MSE to change it to something anonymous

    Sounds like your case is similar to Beavis, so you!!!8217;re on to a loser if you complain about the fine amount.

    If you have been done five previous times your risking becoming a target for legal action. I suggest you park elsewhere so they can!!!8217;t try it on with you any more.

    Hi all,

    I have taken your advice and avoided posting on this thread..... However, I have posted two new topics for guidance, which no one has replied haha! Is there anyone willing to help?

    Thank you

    And this post - where you know you shouldn't post.

    Where's the 'two new topics' where no-one has replied?

    Hi All,

    So my appeal has been rejected from the Parkwatch company, I have 28 days to appeal to POPLA or pay the fine.

    Whats the next plan of action?

    Thank you in advance,
