    Appeal against POPLA Decision - what next?

    Appeal against POPLA Decision - what next? 10th Jan 18 at 5:12 PM
    This is an excellent forum - I have felt very supported by having this community to refer to!

    In fact this is my first post to it about a Parking Charge I received from UKPC in November. I was parked outside the marked lines (with a pay and display ticket) - but in a bay on its own well away from all the others. I appealed to POPLA after PCUK rejected my first appeal; the entry to the bay was slightly obscured by scaffolding but I shot myself in the foot, as I said many elderly folk use this car park, so thought I would use this bay. I lost the second appeal on grounds that their terms of business state that you have to park in the marked bay (if this is not possible, then should park in another bay!). It's such a crazy fine and the fact that it is 100, more than my earning for that visit to teach at University, it has made me want to dig my heals in!

    It would seem that PCUK are registered on BPA's website. So as a legitimate private contractor, it would seem I have no choice but to pay the full amount.

    Two questions; is this worth pursuing further and secondly, if I do pay, can I pay the orginal pre appeal amount of 60?

    Thanks so much

    Where is the newbies FAQ on this?

    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.

    Hint - you won't have to look far down the list.

    Good, I can now see that Edelman has at last found the NEWBIES thread.

    You next task Edelman is to start a new thread if you need further help.

    This thread is not your thread and it only leads to confusion trying to deal with two people's incidents on the same thread.

    Please do not post again on this thread. Thanks.
