Yes, when they replied to say the appeal wasn't successful, they stated that the badge had expired but previous to that we had no idea why the tickets had been issued.
I appealed to both tickets on 03/10 and received the reply saying that the badge had expired on 11/10. If the correct reason had been sated on the original ticket (issued 19/09) we would have known and not used it when parking on 28/09 when the second PCN was issued.
Also the PCN issued on 19/09/13 under code 87 incurred a penalty of £70 (£35 if paid within 14 days) but the PCN issued on 28/09/13 under code 83 incurred a penalty of £50 (£25 if paid within 14 days) yet subsequently it became apparent that they were both for the same contravention!
For Jo C. When should I expect a reply? do you still have no permanent signal?
