    PCN from Parkingeye - Aire Street Leeds - before first appeal 14th Sep 18 at 1:25 PM
    Hi all, just read through the newbie threads and thought I'd better start my own thread now. I will update thread title as we go.

    Driver of the car parked in notorious Aire Street in Leeds. Paid for X hours and received PCN from ParkingEye 6 days later demanding money for spending X hours 28 minutes on the site.

    - Parking had been paid for via the website on a mobile phone, one session followed by an updated session to total X number of hours.

    - Leaving 28 minutes late was due to changing a baby nappy in the pushchair beside the car before being able to drive away.

    - 7 minutes taken to pay for parking initially (difference between arrival time and payment confirmation email).

    - Actual charges made differ from those stated on the signage (eg: 4.40 paid over 2 sessions where 4 is stated on signs, confusing?)

    - Sign suggests car park patrolled 24/7 but none seen during lengthy process of leaving car with baby or returning to car with baby.

    - No physical ticket issued.

    Registered keeper of the car desperate to pay 'fine', does not want to challenge and end up in court and putting possible NHS registration at risk (strange things have happened there, separate issue).

    Initial appeal to ParkingEye will be rejected but it is felt that it is important to appeal correctly ready for the popla appeal. In this case, for this individual, the 14 day 60 fine looks like an attractive path of least resistance. Is keeper correct in wanting to 'pay up'? If not, what grounds to appeal on both initially and ready to go to popla?

    Thank you in advance for the honest advice.

    You say you already have read up in the newbies thread.

    Then go on to ask for initial appeal points??

    The initial appeal is done for you in the FAQ!

    Going to court if it comes to this won't affect any NHS registration whatever that means!

    Follow the advice in the FAQ on when to send the initial appeal, then concentrate on the popla appeal - see #3 in the FAQ

    Post the draft here for comments before sending it

    Is it APNR parking? You should mention the two lots of 10 minute grace periods and also the mitigating circumstances of the nappy change. ParkingEye do cancel tickets that may be difficult to win in POPLA/court.

    Also, check if it is a ParkingEye "Golden Ticket", usually posted more than 14 days after the event, and hence not referring to PoFA Act. This is an easy win at this stage.

    Getting it cancelled quickly will make the keeper much happier.
