A nice POPLA win against ParkingEye

From: Patrick

Just wanted to say thanks for the great advice on the site. I recently had my appeal against a parking eye ticket accepted and the charge cancelled. The popla ruled that the operator did not have the authority to issue the ticket. Thanks.

Thanks for writing in Patrick. Your appeal is a good example of using multiple legal appeal points, since ParkingEye has to be able to refute each of them. In this case you queried whether they had authority from the land owner to operate and issue parking charge notices. In their response, ParkingEye claimed that they did, but not produce any evidence to back this claim up. Since the burden of proof is with ParkingEye, then on the balance of probabilities the assessor found they did not. As such they upheld the appeal.

Great job, well done!
