Hi.

Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.

Are they all actually issued more than 6 months ago?

Or have you received a document other than the original PCN?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I received the 9 penalty charges on the 13/06/14 the offences occurred from15/11/13 going back to24/04/13.


On the 13/06/14 this is the first time I had heard of the offence.


As you can see it has taken a long time to issue these.There is camera evidence that I am in a loading bay and every picture is taken with my van in exactly the same spot.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 years ago.
OK.

But are they all PCNs?

They are entitled penalty charge notice?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

yes they are all pcns

Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 years ago.
If that is right then they are out of time.

These are summary only contraventions. They have six months to lay complaint before an Adjudicator save for certain exceptions.

If they have just issued these fines so far out of time with no reason to do so then they are probably just hoping you will pay.

They may reject your appeal but just keep appealing until you get to the adjudicator to whom they should not be able to appeal because of the time delay.

Can I clarify anything for you?

Thank you for the info, it is what I thought that there is a 6 month period to be issued. I am now filling all the forms out to appeal.
