    WYP parking notice

    WYP parking notice 10th Mar 18 at 2:03 PM
    The driver went to Shimla's on Great Horton Road Bradford and parked behind where there are some garages. They had not seen signs saying parking is not allowed here and were surprised to find a PCN on windscreen due to causing an obstruction. Apparently a few other drivers had received a PCN and told the driver to ignore it which they did.
    Thinking back to it I should have gone further and mentioned about markings as I went to see this area and there isn't any road markings outside the gate to indicate where not to park. Also there are two signs directly in front of where the vehicle was parked and are pretty too close together saying 'parking for Shimlas customers' and 'no parking'.
    Please can you guide me can I ignore it because it is from a private company or if I appeal it what shall I write.
    I am refusing to pay on the basis of poor signage (just one small sign, no markings on pavement etc)
    I have been told because it is a private company legally they can not do anything.

    See if they'll also change your user name for you (I assume that is your real name?).
