  • Council parking ticket

    I recieved a parking ticket last week ill explain below what happened

    I came home from work as my son was sick at 5.30pm, I pulled up and parked in front of my drive as I have done a number of times over 7 years Iíve lived here and the reason I did this time was because I had a skip on my drive. A man from Morrison utility came over and knocked on my window telling me that I couldnít park there as they were going to dig up the road and put barriers in the middle of the road as they had to do emergency water work on a house 2 doors along. ( house having works done)
    I told the man that it was my drive and I had every right to park in front, which escalated to a argument who was in the right and wrong he told me if I didnít move he would call the police. It was raining I had my son being sick and there were no other spaces available so he suggested seeing as it was late there would be no problem parking on the curb there are no signs to say this isnít allowed I was tired and stressed so I did so to try to resolve the situation and went inside.
    The next Morning I went out to work at 7.30 am to find a ticket on my car I have never once seen any cars on my road who have parked like this with a ticket ever on my road neither have I ever parked this way before.
    Iíve posted photos to explain the situation. Also is there a time limit to how long they should wait before giving the ticket ?
    Anothee point is the name of the road on the ticket is completely wrong.
    Sorry for the long post just wanted to check what I can do before I appeal
    Thanks in advance.

        Anothee point is the name of the road on the ticket is completely wrong.
        Pavement parking has been banned in London for years, unless there are signs which permit it. However you have been handed a get-out-of-jail-free card. The pcn must have the correct location.

        Apppeal on the grounds that the contravention did not occur. The pcn alleges the location was ZZZ Road, whereas you were parked outside no.XX in XXX Road, as can be ascertained by the council's own photographic evidence.

        Please confirm the the pcn has been cancelled
