|Four dozen (48) roses|
There were 1,166 new Appeals registered at PATAS in this week.
56 of them came from Barnet so that is 5% which is more than one should expect and is a sign that the motorist simply isn't going to roll over and pay when faced with a doubtful PCN.
There were 48 appeals heard and 32 of them went the way of the motorist which is a 67% success rate.
Only 3 appeals of note:
- in Brampton Grove the signs were not clear so the PCN was cancelled.
- a suspension sign was set at an uncommonly low level so that PCN was cancelled.
- A Notice of Rejection was sent out in an unstamped envelope, imagine having to pay the Royal Mail an extra £1 to find out that your PCN was not cancelled. This person didn't want the public purse to bear any further burden for expenses even though the adjudicator though the council's behaviour was borderline unreasonable. The adjudicator suggested the council should make an ex-gratia payment.
Keep those appeals coming.
