Expert:  Jo C. replied 2 years ago.
Ok That is suspended bay.
Sorry if I am missing the point but I'm not sure on what basis you are hoping to reclaim? You seem to accept there were signs?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

on th basis that , it was my first time visiting the bourough, and the paking attendant saw me while i was buying my ticket to park, he didnt tell me that i cant park in the bay.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 2 years ago.
I'm really sorry but that is not a ground.
If the traffic management order allowed and there were signs up then the bay is suspended.
I'm afraid it is motorist to check that his parking his lawful not to bring it his attention. If the signs were visible upon reasonable inspection then it is not parking attendant to remind you.
Sorry but I can only give you truthful information.
