    PCN received - not aware if parking charges applied 15th May 18 at 3:54 PM
    Hi All

    I read through a few posts on this forum about appealing PCN notices on failed payments but could not find anything relevant same to my situation.

    Station - Ickenham LU Stn

    Usual use - pick up from the train station

    So a family member came to pick me up a few days ago as usual. I had to wait because my money was stuck in the London Underground Oyster Card top up machine. We received a PCN notice a couple of days ago.

    Looks like NCP has recently introduced charges on entering the Car Park whereas before people were able to pickup and drop off passengers without problems. So yesterday I wen to speak to the London Underground staff, they said they have nothing to do with the Car Park and NCP and I need to deal with them directly.

    Do you think I can appeal against this? or should I not bother at all?

    Ickenham's car park is subject to TFL Byelaws; so don't mention the driver's name.

    I'm trying to understand how so many people post without reading (or appearing to read):

    NEWBIES PLEASE READ THESE FAQS FIRST (sticky thread up near the top of the forum)

    Is it due to accessing the forum on your phone? What else can we do to make sure people read the sticky (at the top) thread first?

    The template first appeal is there, all the KEEPER needs to do, is copy it in online to NCP.

    I read through a few posts on this forum about appealing PCN notices on failed payments but could not find anything relevant same to my situation.
    That's because the facts don't matter. One of the Q&A in the sticky thread says:
    Q - ''I have read the NEWBIES thread but cannot find anything specific to my case...my case is different''.

    A - NO IT ISN'T. YOU DO NOT NEED SPECIFICS. FORGET THE DETAIL, MOST CASES ARE ALL THE SAME.
    The only thing different in your case, is I would try to get proof of the change:
    Looks like NCP has recently introduced charges on entering the Car Park whereas before people were able to pickup and drop off passengers without problems.
    So, look at the website for the station, what does it say about dropping off, is that still offered free? Get screenshots if so, in readiness for POPLA stage.

    Also get pics of signs/lack of signs alerting regular users to the change in restrictions, next time you are there, again in readiness for POPLA stage.

    This first appeal stage is SIMPLE as long as the keeper appeals, not saying who was driving.
    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.
