The documentation does not refer to the local council. The problem is because I sent my appeal to POPLA in an ordinary envelope with a first class stamp, the postage was insufficient - there is a yellow sticker on my returned letter saying that there was 11p of "unpaid deficient postage". Presumably POPLA was notified of this letter but wouldn't pay for the deficient postage, The letter came back to be over a month after I had posted it and I immediately resent it by Special Delivery. It is disappointing that a body such as POPLA set up to avoid unnecessary Court applications refuses to take the matter any further. I assume that I will no need to wait for some Court action from APCOA.
The fine was dated 1st August.
