    Penalty Charge Notice

    hi all...just got served the above PCN for parking on a a single yellow line near Great Ormond Street hospital for 10 min above the 3 hour time limit for Blue badge holders..we were delayed as the Consultant wanted my little one to have some blood tests done..long story short..can we appeal this PCN and also the make of my car is incorrectly printed with the correct registration number of my car...is this PCN even valid with the wrong make of car..anyone had any similar experiences or advice? ??

    Well you have nothing to lose by lodging an appeal. I wrongly displayed my father's disability badge for him and he got a ticket, but it was overturned after I lodged an appeal. Not sure about the legality of the PCN but it doesn't hurt to try.

    One of you should have moved the car.

    However you should go to the website pepipoo.com for proper advice on getting away with it,

    yes if the details are incorrect you can appeal it. Depends who has issued the pcn as to how successfull you will be. Im having a nightmare with parking eye at the minute, my case has gone to the popla ombudsmun. They havnt listened to any point i made in my appeal, rejected my appeal and now its with popla. You have better grounds than me though, but if its parking eye thats issued it then they will probably ignore what you say and try and get money out of you anyway. Its criminal how they act. Also some legal rules changed recently where you as registered keeper of the vehicle are held liable now, where before you could say you didnt know who was parking or using your car. If you lose the case with popla its tough luck you have to pay it or go to court

    citizens advice have been tweeting the last few days of when to appeal a parking charge.

    Rather than trying to get out on a technically (not sure how they managed to get the make wrong, model maybe but not make) I would contact Camden council with a letter with your reasons and a copy of your hospital letter as proof. Good Luck.

    ​you should appeal it regardless, they work on the basis x amount of people will just pay up, which you should never do, at least make it hard for them. They operate very poorly these companies, they shouldnt be allowed to get away with it.

    They were parked on the street. It will be Camden council that issued it. Ignoring it won't make it go away. They will take it all the way whatever the cost. So a totally different situation from yours.

    thanks all for your advice.. we've already had a terrible day and this PCN really wasn't warranted especially with all the construction work going on near GOSH...

    You knew the rules on parking with a blue badge.

    I can't look at the web page you tried to retrospectively posted as it is incomplete.

    Im not sure on your situation. You seem to be suggesting you got a ticket from a parking company and not a council?

    I would write a letter explaining the circumstances in delaying you in returning to your car as well as providing proof of appointment. Additionally provide a copy of blue badge.
    If it is a motobility vehicle inform them of this too, it all helps.
    Explain that you would never park illegally, outside the allocated time slot as you as a law abiding citizen.

    Just be kind natured in your tone in letter and ask for their leniency. It is worth a try... Good luck

    don't worry this has happened to me about 8 months ago just go to the Camden website link on the back of the ticket and make an appeal detail the reason for you overstaying (a picture of the badge so they can see the number will help) I did this and they cancelled the ticket due to extenuating circumstances

    This. Don't wind them up with technicality. Just appeal to their goodwill and explain the circumstances. Hopefully, they will take that into account and be sympathetic.
