    Smart PCN wrong registration 10th Jul 18 at 10:56 AM
    Hi everyone just looking for some advice please! I have received a parking charge notice from smart parking at Astle retail park West Bromwich on 22/06/2018 !!! Someone has typed an old registration number in the machine which has resulted in this PCN !!! have I got a chance if I contest it? Parking was paid and was well in the time limit allocated! Thanks in advance !!! Never posted before new here!

    Please start by reading the Newbies Sticky and follow the advice there. Then send the template appeal, unaltered.

    Appeals based on common sense or fact almost invariably fail and often make life more difficult for you down the line.

    Also it would be wise to edit your post to remove all references to who was driving - PPCs do monitor this forum and occasionally try to match-up cases with posters, so from now-on only post from the POV of the vehicle keeper.

    Just send the NEWBIES appeal template and don't change it, don't add to it.
    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.
