|Brampton Grove, NW4|
It was a short week due to the Bank Holiday Monday and so only 832 new Appeals were lodged at PATAS. Of those 64 emanated from Barnet which is 8% or, put another way, twice as many as there should be.
There were 26 Appeals allowed, 6 refused and 2 recommended for cancellation. That was 81% of PCN cancelled which is higher than usual.
There were only 4 notable cases.
1. There was no evidence to support the claim that the motorist drove away. there are a lot of these sort of cases. If you didn't see the traffic warden then appeal all the way.
2. NSL, for the council, wrote that they were unable to cancel. This is not good wording. they are able to cancel but they have chosen not to. Please appeal these all the way to the end.
3. In Brampton Grove, which is ironically quite close to Hendon Town Hall, some signage was found to be confusing.
4. In another case the council (NSL) didn't "properly engage" i.e properly consider, the representations. this is a procedural impropriety. Make sure you set out a clear argument and if the council don't tackle it properly then keep appealing to the end.
Keep those appeals coming.
