I have just received a parking charge for not buying a parking ticket. Can I appeal this charge. Yours sincerely. R.Scott

Thanks for the information

It rather depends what signs at the location say. Usually they prohibit parking and you would not be in breach of that.I suppose that they may argue that you were there for a length of time that suggests that you were parking. Its so they could say that is for you to prove that you were not.

It would be worth arguing these things.Apart from anything else they read sue

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.
