    Council ticket - wrong address and private land

    Council ticket - wrong address and private land 10th Aug 18 at 1:08 PM
    Hi all,

    I received a parking ticket last week from a council warden. (Double yellows - parked there from 12:58-1pm whilst picking up a parcel from the store as no parking bays available.)

    The ticket was issued on a shopping centre where I work which is private land - the company who own the shopping centre (and the land on which it is built) confirmed that it is indeed private.

    As well as being on private land, the address on the ticket is also incorrect. Again, I contacted the owners of the shopping centre who confirmed that the street name on the ticket is absolutely not on their land where the ticket was issued.

    The street name on the ticket is (somewhat) in the vicinity of where the car was parked, but the car was not parked illegally on that street.

    I've searched around on the forums and on Google and I'm still unsure whether:

    a) a council warden can issue parking tickets on private land, and,
    b) if the ticket still stands considering the car was not parked illegally at the address stated on the ticket.

    There is one week remaining to pay the fine at the reduced rate (35 instead of 70) so any advice you kind souls could pass on would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks in advance,
