Hi - are you saying that the council had not put up signs before you went on hols?
how long we were away??
They are right strictly speaking. The reason that they refer to the 24-hour period is that one sign can be issued within a 24-hour period for the same offence and so they are arguing that the motorists obligation is a daily one. Strictly speaking that is correct.
They do have a duty to advertise the suspension of any bay but if you were away for three weeks I suppose they may be arguing that they did and you missed the advertisement.
That said, they may well cancel this using their discretionary grounds.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Yes, always worth trying. Quite apart from anything else if you have limited history with them there is a good chance that they will
Exercise their discretion in your favour.
