Saturday Night Parking Ticket

While no ASOP supporter received a parking ticket/penalty charge notice (PCN) at our meeting in Whitby a couple did receive one for parking their motorhome on Marine Drive, Scarborough.

Motorhome - Marine Drive

I have agreed to be the appointed agent for the couple. My informal appeal to Scarborough Borough Council (SBC) can be seen below.

Informal Appeal To SBC

From: Andy Strangeway

Sent: Monday, December 7, 2015 4:33 PM


Subject: Informal Appeal – PCN Number: SJ02434901

Dear Sir/Madam,

PCN Number: SJ02434901

Date: 5 December 2015

Registration: xxxxxxx

Could I please refer you to the email below from the owners of the above vehicle requesting me to be their Appointed Agent?

As the Appointed Agent I believe SBC must withdraw the PCN as:

  1. There is no signage in the area in relation to motor caravans.
  2. There is no signage in the area in relation to a Class to permit the use of PCN Code 91. Motor Caravan is a type not a Class.
  3. The PCN Code relates to a Class of vehicle not a type, whereas the Order does not, it relates to a type not a Class.
  4. The area where the motorhome was parked does not appear on the map in the Off Street Parking Order for Marine Drive.
  5. I am informed that the motorhome did not contain a table. As such, as the EU Directive states a Motor Caravan “which contains …table”, this confirms the vehicle not to be a Motor Caravan.

Kindest Regards,

Andy Strangeway
