    Parking Eye says receipt not to landowners's discretionary criteria.

    Parking Eye says receipt not to landowners's discretionary criteria. 29th Apr 18 at 6:58 PM
    My son got ticketed at a small open air retail car park on 16th February for being 18mins over the 2hr limit, it was in the evening, the businesses on the park are all national outlets e.g. Lidl, Home Bargains, Travel Lodge & Wetherspoons where he was that evening. The PPC had only recently taken over, poor signage etc. We duly contested with the usual formal letter based on previous cases and pointed out their signage failings, of course they ignored that and said 'tough' the only way you might be able to appeal to our better nature would be if you could send us evidence of making a purchase, he sent them the receipt, however they responded by saying that it did not accord with the discretionary criteria of the landowner so the charge is still due! They did not say what this mysterious criteria is.

    Would we be right in thinking that this is a daft thing to say as it seems that they are saying that the landowner is party to the PCN. Surely the PPC can't issue a PCN and then say that the landowner is involved? What do you think?

    We spoke to Wetherspoons yesterday and they were not happy when the PPC took over and imposed a 2hr limit on their customers, they now have a system for customers to enter their reg numbers on an iPad on the bar, but that didn't start until 16 March.

    We will go down the POPLA route of course (sigh) but it would be good to get your views.

    Thanks

    No, you can't call POPLA about a code that's invalid.

    What are the middle 4 digits?

    That code is an error by PE - day 81 of 2018 was in March.

    So email them (NOT POPLA) and demand a new POPLA code or you will report them to the BPA:

    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:
    Top of the page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.

    Ok, I just had an email from Parking Eye, it reads-

    "Thank you for your recent email. We can confirm that this Parking Charge has been cancelled and there is no outstanding payment due on this account."

    Thanks so much for all your help moderators!
