hello, here are a few facts on parking the parking managers did not want you to know.
no1 parking attendents (pa's) have to give you 10 minuites after you pay and display ticket expires before giving you a ticket. 5 mins grace period and then a further 5 mins. a few months a go the parking manager told pa's to only give you 5 mins after your ticket expires before giving you a pcn (penalty charge notice)and quite a lot were issued after only 5 mins expiry of a pd ticket, however 2 months later the manager said the concil told us not to do it anymore and that we should not have done it in the first place, so if you got a pcn after just 5 mins, you should appeal it.
i will tell you more facts if people ask.

the loading/ unloading rule is, if a parking attendent sees a car which is on lines, or without a pd ticket, they will have to log your vehicle for 5 mins, if they see no signs of loading even if their is a sign on the front of your car saying im loading, they can give you a penalty charge notice. if they see you loading they can give you up to 20 mins to load, if they think you only have a 5 minuite job they might give you only 5 mins then give you a ticket, its really up to the parking attendents on how long you get. but if you are seen loading constantly, say bringing stuff in and out of your car every 5 mins. they cant give you a ticket for up to 20 mins. if you want to load for more then 20 mins, then you will need to get a dispensation from the parking shop.

fact 2. on cliffe high street where the loading only markings are and the no parking road markings are up to bills cafe, parking attendents must give you 10 mins along there, unless your causing an obstruction, so if you have had a ticket up along their in under 10 mins you can appel it. it was the councils decsion make sure pa's give you 10 mins observation along their before giving you a ticket. however on the bridge outside argous, the parking manager said to only give cars 5 mins, so if you just poping into town quickly park on cliffe high street and not on the bridge for an extra 5 mins time.

Assuming you are a trader "Grumpy trader"...
Not so long back I was a trader in Brighton so am well aware of parking problems/ the authorities generally unhelp dealings with local traders not to mention the bustard business rates... or extortion as some may call it.

At least this person is giving out some useful information, the only other thing we need to know is the legalities of shoving a parking tickey up their arsÚs

Hi, Today I received a Notice to owner for being parked after the expiry of paid time...My ticket expired at 11.53 and the ticket was issued at 11.57, additionally no ticket was ever attached to the car as I arrived while the attendant was there and she simply walked away...so I thought no ticket was ever issued, I am confused...are they allowed to do this and what grounds would I have for an appeal?
