who issued you the fine and letter?
Is the road a private road or is it adopted by the council?
Who owns the road, your friend?
If your friend does not own the road, then he has no legal right to give you permission to park on there double yellow lines.
It appears to be a private issued ticket, so not a legally enforceable parking ticket like would be issued by the local authority.
A private issued parking ticket is basically like an invoice.
As you possible had no legal right to park there, if the legal owner of the road has employed a parking enforcement company to "police"the road, they can issue tickets.
Your options are to either pay the ticket, or refuse to pay and see what they do next.
Their option would be to take you to court for non payment, this would be the small claims court as the amount would be seen a s a debt.
