Medway Council Parking Blunder

This is another paperwork blunder by a local authority.

On the left is a Notice to Owner issued by Medway Council. This is the document that you get after 28 days if you do not pay (or receive) a Penalty Charge Notice (Parking Ticket).

The Notice to Owner has to be correctly worded in order to comply with the legal requirements of the 1991 Road Traffic Act.

In this instance Medway Council have made a rather large blunder meaning that everyone who has received such a document can immediately ask for the Penalty Charge Notice to be cancelled.

Parking Appeals is a campaigning website that will not only tell you exactly why the Notice to Owner is unlawful ... and how to appeal it, but will also expose any local authority which

believes it is above the law.

It only costs £9.99 a year to support what we do. Simply click on the Parking Appeals logo below to become a member (and get an extra month free from this link).

If you then want to then find out why this Notice to Owner is non-compliant and therefore unlawful, once you are a member simply go to
"Had a Ticket"
then to
"Penalty Charge Notice" and it will all become clear when you check out the 'Common Paperwork Mistakes' section.

I am sure that you will then say how on earth could they get something so simple so wrong?

This is typical of many local authorities around the country and once you are a member of Parking Appeals you will have access to all this information. Can you afford not to join?
