Ok. That is a proper parking fine then.
The short answer is that you need to check with the traffic management order.
If this is public road maintained by the council and the TMO enforces a prohibition at that location then they can enforce it.
If it is private or unadopted road then they cannot as it is not their domain.
The fact that it is not named is a non issue although it is one tell tale sign of an unadopted road. Another is the absence of street furniture and lighting.
They should send you a copy of the TMO if you appeal asking and if you do so within 14 days you will not lose your right to pay at the discounted amount as they will extend that.
Can I clarify anything for you?
