      Have you complained about this to the management of Tesco (not the customer disservice desk)? mentioning the Equality Act and the Blue Badge.

      The response about the blue badge is that double yellow regulations do not apply on private land.

        It might be worth checking to see if that close is an adopted road and so council owned.
        On Google the yellow lines run from the main road without interruption, and there do not appear to be any signs saying Private Property etc so why would you not expect the badge to be valid? (Google could be out of date!)

          Could it be the Parking Company are trying to say they do not have to abide by the Equality Act or make allowances for those who clearly are. Or are they saying Double Yellows on private land have no meaning - if so then it may follow that a request for info on all those they have "invoiced" for doing this may follow - not that I would expect they would volunteer the info but a FOI to HMCTS may make uncomfortable reading.

              My daughter was in a situation with PCM and Tesco car park a couple of years ago. They sent two pictures of her car, front and back and claimed that she had been parked for longer than two hours. We ignored the first few letters from them but eventually gave in and sent them a reply stating that she had just dropped a friend off and returned three hours later to pick them up. They dropped the case!

              Did you actually 'park' on the yellow lines or were you just dropping your mum off ? wink, wink

                  So that is a nice forbidding sign.
                  As one cannot contract to do what is forbidden, what is the basis of the charge? It can't be contractual.
                  As you have already appealed the PCN,(and identified the driver?) i doubt Ruby's advice is of much use.

                  Whereabouts is that sign positioned?
                  Are there notices at the entrance to the close? (can't see them on Google)
                  Have you checked with the LA about the status of that close?
                  The yellow lines continue round from the main road without a break and make it appear that the close is a public road.
                  Without adequate signage which you saw you cannot have entered into a contract (especially for a forbidden action)
