got a Parking Charge Notice (not a council one) through the post. Car park in Porthleven, Cornwall, in the car. Pics of car, me driving, entering and leaving the car park about 4 hours apart. Deffo me, I deffo parked there, and We deffo bought a ticket. PCN says no record of payment. You had to type your reg number in so most probably it went in incorrectly (Wife paid and input the ref so she is getting all the blame). Of course we no longer have the ticket and paid in cash. So no evidence. My options seem to be: pay up to avoid the hassle. It’s £100 or £60 if paid within 28 days. Appeal. Looking at it objectively it’s my word against theirs unless I can get them to produce a list of registrations input around the relevant time, together with pictures of each such car entering and leaving the car park. We should finds registration so close to ours and no picture of a car with that plate. At that point it should be unarguable. From what I can see about appeals incorrect reg is not a defence and it costs £25 for the appeal. So it could easily end up at £125. Although I could always ignore the outcome. Ignore the letter and all subsequent correspondence until it goes away. The risk is that they do actually go to a small claims court where I would be relying on the same defence as at appeal, although I reckon if there was a reg number one letter wrong at the time we paid the small claims court would dismiss the case. Risk is my defence fails and the charge plus costs adds up to £500 or more. Write to the parking company outlining my defence, asking for the evidence but being clear I had no intention of paying up - ever - hoping it all just goes away, or ends up in small claims court. Someone must have been in the same position. What do you reckon???
