Parking Charge Notices – How to Avoid, How to Appeal
Parking Charge Notices occur when a parking violation has taken place on private land or in a car park operated by private organisations, on behalf of the landowner.
The types of car parks that issue Parking Charge Notices are found in airports, railway stations, supermarkets, fast food restaurants, and out of town retail outlets, as well as those close to coastlines.
Private property has its own rules and regulations to follow, including its own method of appealing. The following is a guide on how to avoid charges, and what to do if you launch an appeal.
How to avoid a Parking Charge Notice
• Do not park in disabled bays unless you have a blue badge.
• Operators who are BPA members must follow the BPA code of practice, granting drivers a 10-minute allowance on parking deadlines. If you haven’t received this on a BPA owned car park and a parking notice was issued, you should have good grounds to appeal.
How to appeal Parking Charge Notices
An appeal can be launched in any incident where you feel the parking charge was given unfairly.
