    PCN received after 3 months of offence! 9th May 18 at 9:53 PM

    I received a parking ticket from a private car park from a ANPR. I have read a few threads and since i hadn't received the PCN notice within the 14days from the offence, I wasn't liable to pay as this breached the Notice to Keeper rules set out in the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 ( got the PCN 3 months after the offence)I.

    They have responded as below and I don't know what to do. Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks Shev

    'Dear Sir/Madam

    Thank you for your correspondence relating to your Parking Charge Notice (PCN), the contents of which have been noted.

    The Notice in question was issued without invoking the Protection of Freedoms Act.

    In accordance with the DVLA and BPA rules, PCNs can be issued up to six months from the date of the parking contravention.

    We apologise the Notice was not received in a timely manner, and whilst we appreciate that this Notice was issued later than the BPA AOS guidelines, such occurrences can occur due to a number of reasons, such as delays in receiving keeper information or a delay in data processing.

    Please forward to us the full name and address of the driver at the time this charge was incurred so that we can update our records accordingly.

    We are placing this Notice on hold for 14 days from the date of this email to allow you to provide the details requested.'

    Obviously you are going to win at POPLA...amazed you are asking what to do with that desperate letter!

    Ignore the daft thing of course and wait for the rejection letter & POPLA code, where the keeper 100% wins.

    You say they responded.

    Responded to what?

    Did you send an appeal?

    If so, can you please post the wording of that appeal?

    Do not respond to their question asking for the driver's details.
