    NO Notification for parking offence 16th Apr 19 at 3:30 PM
    I'm a newbie, I have looked through as much as I can on the forums, but I have not managed to find what I am looking for. I received a Parking charge notice from Dept Recovery Plus acting on behalf of PCS (Parking Control Solutions) requesting that I pay 160 parking charge for PARKING BEYOND A STIPULATED TIME LIMIT. The date on the letter said the charge happened on 21/01/19. DRP state they sent the letter on 02/04/19 but i did not receive until 09/04/19. After tracking down who PCS were i sent them an email on Friday asking what the charge was about and why i had no notificationt and they replied for outstaying parking allocation time and please deal with DRP as they would not enter into any further correspondence. I sent an email to DRP on Monday 15/04/19 before going out for the day and upon checking emails i received one stating that they aim to answer emails within 14 to 28 days.

    I have rang DRP asking what it is about and they said i had to pay them today 16/04/19 as this was my final day if i don't pay they will recommend Court Charges be brought and i do not have any right of appeal anywhere. I must pay the fine.

    How can i appeal against something within the stipulated time (according to DRP) if i know nothing about this

    Help please this is driving me nuts as 160 parking fine is ridiculous

    Any help would be much appreciated.
