We have been issued with a PCN for stopping our school minibus

Customer Question

We have been issued with a PCN for stopping our school minibus in a borough bus layby in order to allow the children to board the bus. Other coaches and minibuses park here on occasions and we had two buses park but only one was sent a penalty notice. Should we contest this. The layby is directly outside our school gates and is a convenient place to pick up and drop off the children. We had always thought that this was allowable as we are a bus.
Could you advise?
Thanks you

Thank you for your question. My name is Jo and I will try to help with this. When did the offence take place?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
20/11/13 at 12.26 but we use the bus lay-by every day to take the children to and from our dining facility so they could have photographed us on numerous occasions.

Just a quick reminder, there is an information request here from the Expert. This means they need to know more details before they will be able to give you a full answer.
