    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

    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.

    Something VERY strange is going on here.

    It seems that more than one person has had considerable difficulty in finding:-

    "**NEWBIES!! PRIVATE PARKING TICKET? OLD OR NEW? **READ THESE FAQS FIRST!** Thankyou!

    I have now joined the 'I cant find it list'. I have tried patiently and on more than one occasion to find the elusive list and whilst not claiming to be a genius i don't believe i am an idiot either.

    .......i am now lost for a way forwards (whilst mid tussle with NCP)..............help please

    Hit your computer/tablet 'BACK' button, looks like a <, then you'll see the first page of the sub-forum with a list of threads (like an index). The sticky thread you're seeking is one of the first four in that index list.

    Alternatively go to the very top of this page and click on the link that says "Parking Tickets Fines & Parking".

    That will take you to the board index.

    Despite my signature below every reply, that tells everyone to 'look up' and click 2 clicks?

    I asked my sons (who do not use forums) the other day, to read my forum sig and see if they could then see where to click at the top of the page - they saw the breadcrumb trail in seconds.

    The link above (at the top of EVERY page here) is there on pretty much all forums, as a 'breadcrumb trail'.

    It takes a reader back to the forum where the post you are reading sits (takes you back to the thread list of the board it was posted on). This is how forums work. People are not expected to be forum experts but if teenagers like mine, with no forum experience, can see from my signature where to click, why can't everyone?

    Why do I bother to say the below, at all, if no-one can be bothered to look up, find the link, and click back?

    Some people read my replies and STILL ask 'can I have link?' No. The link is above.

    Some people also try to read a forum on phone. Unbelievable. No way, just don't go there...! No-one can read a detailed advice from a forum, on a phone - it would be like asking your solicitor to text you some conveyancing or legal document.
