PCN from Wandswoth council on a football day
« on: May 15, 2024, 07:50:18 pm »
Please can someone help!
I got a parking ticket from Wandswoth council on Saturday 27th of April on contravention 12( parking without permit)
But as this was a Saturday i didnít need permit to park.
Sometimes when there is football on for AFC Wimbledon there is a notice as you enter the street to warn you of event day , but on this day there was no notice
I appealed the ticket and it was rejected saying there was football on in this day and there was a notice on entry of E1 only, there was no notice on entry for G1 where I was parked

Please can I contest this further or pay up, I have attached the PCN, and the appeal rejection letter
They used to put up notice on G1 entry on event days but they donít anymore

Please give us a link to the relevant zones.

Where a street in one of the zones runs into another of the zones, one would not normally expect an EVD sign at the boundary between two zones that are part of the EVD scheme. EVD signs must be placed where one enters one of the relevant zones.

This is the type of notice they put at the beginning of the street on E1 but i took a picture on that day and this notice wasnít there although the council letter was saying there was a notice on E1
There was none

I understand what you're getting at now. With an event day sign right by the sign for one of the zones, but with no applicable zones on it, it could be considered confusing if you then pass a sign for another zone with no event day sign. You could be mislead into thinking there were no restrictions for that zone.

So if you want to take this further, you'll have to wait for the Notice to Owner and submit a formal representation on the above lines. Note that whilst the discount option is lost, they normally re-offer it when rejecting reps, although there is no guarantee on this.

Others may wish to comment so do wait a bit.

@Choice4 please read the guidance here and then re-post the PCN without any redactions. Also please give us the location of the exact spot where you entered zone G1.

I do agree you have a viable case, if zone G1 is an event zone the signs should say so and if the zone sign did not tell you about this, the signage is inadequate IMO.
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 practice law in the Traffic Penalty Tribunal, London Tribunals, the First-tier tribunal for Scotland, and the Traffic Penalty Tribunal for Northern Ireland, but I am not a solicitor nor a barrister.

The road is garratt lane which starts from Tooting Broadway all the way to Wandsworth
At the end of E1 zone there is a round about one goes to Wimbledon Road and the other continues as garratt lane and thatís when G1 zone begins

Normally there is a notice at the beginning of the round about as you enter G1 zone from E1 to inform motorists of event days but on this day there was no notice as I went back and took pictures that same day and I didnít see the notice
Unless they now put the notice in a different location which wasnít visible,
The rejection letter from Wandsworth could claims there was a notice on E1 entrance but i didnít see it when I took photos
