Hi all

On behalf of a friend, who received a PCN on his road where he is a resident. He did have a resident permit but didnít renew on time and has now been issued with a PCN. Is there any grounds to appeal this on the basis that heís lived here over the last 5 years and has always had a resident permit but in this instance didnít renew on time?

Thanks

'but in this instance didnít renew on time?' can cover a multitude of alternatives e.g. 1 day late, 1 week late, 1 month.....?

So now he needs to submit an informal representation explaining that he has been a permit holder for 5 years, but on forgot to renew his permit this year , and request that on this ocasion the PCN be cancelled on a goodwill basis.

Post a draft on here first and we'll tidy it up for you.
I am not on the "motorists's side", nor am I on the "police/CPS/council's" side, I am simply in favour of the rule of law. Section 6 of the Interpretation Act 1978 applies to everything I post as it would apply to an Act of Parliament. I am a Conservative councillor, this means some people think I am "scum". I am not a lawyer.

Draft below:

Dear Islington Council,

Iím writing to appeal the PCN on the grounds that I am a resident permit holder and have been for the last 5 years. I apologise for not renewing on time, I was wrongly under the impression that it would renew automatically but that wasnít the case. I can only apologise and can assure you that this doesnít happen again. I plead that on this occasion you cancel this PCN as a token of good will.

I attach evidence that I have been a paying resident permit holder over the last years, as well as currently having a permit which I immediately purchased upon realising it did not renew.

Regards

I think it's worth employing the tactic explained here, because I know from experience that Islington Council won't look at the evidence.

However only a failure to consider at the formal representations stage will work, so I suggest you take out "I attach evidence that I have been a paying resident permit holder over the last years, as well as currently having a permit which I immediately purchased upon realising it did not renew" and don't attach anything.

At the notice to owner stage, if you send me the supporting evidence I can set up a couple of links with a click counter. This approach is quite novel but so far it has always worked, see these cases:

Simandeep Johal v London Borough of Lewisham (2230428653, 04 November 2023)
Long Ting Lo v London Borough of Brent (2230490555, 18 December 2023)
Norbert Adam v London Borough of Sutton (2230516863, 06 January 2024)

cp8759 is also a "wicked" wizard!  That first case was a bit of a mouthful though.
There are known knowns which, had we known, we would never have wished to know. It is known that this also applies to the known unknowns. However, when one attends a hearing, Mr Rumsfeld's idea that there are also unknown unknowns fails to apply because, anyone who is in the know, knows that unknown unknowns are purely a deception otherwise known as an aleatory experience or also known as a lottery. I know that I know this to be a fact and, in this knowledge, I know that I am fully prepared to present my case but, paradoxically, in full knowledge that the unknown unknowns may well apply in view of some adjudicators' lack of knowing what they ought to know.

Is it worth pursuing this further or is this a gamble?

I would PM cp8759.

@iispartan there's no point in paying now, if you want for the notice to owner and challenge in within 14 days they almost invariably reoffer the discount. Therefore you might as well give them another chance to mess things up.
