  • Paid PCN but had grounds for appeal

    A visit to my sister in Bath ended with a PCN for £70.

    I did not realise that the road is in a resident permit holderís only zone and i should have purchased a digital visitor permit. Iím at fault for not seeing the 2 large signs that i drove past. Too busy looking at road names trying to find my sisterís road was the reason i did not see them.

    Iíve read on other forum sites that non London councils can only charge £50 for not having a digital permit because the contravention is not listed as a £70 PCN in the legislative guidance for non London councils.

    I was going to lodge an objection to the £70 PCN but my sister felt responsible and without my knowledge, she paid it.

    Iím not happy with being overcharged. I donít want to go off half-cock so Iím researching this in more depth with other non London councils that issue digital permits to see what responses i get.

    With the appeal process closed off, should I make a formal complaint or do members here recommend an alternative way to have this looked into?
