Can I appeal a Parking Charge Notice? was created by Lindsay Heyes
You can appeal a Parking Charge Notice (PCN) if it was wrongly issued or for a minor keying error of your vehicle registration This information has been amended after changes in the British Parking Association Code of Practice, implemented on 6th January 2020.

Our customers are not exempt from paying for parking. When all is said and done, it is the driver's responsibility to declare their Vehicle Registration Mark and to make timely payment for the full duration of their stay. Users who paid for the full period they were parked with PaybyPhone, or whose vehicle had a valid seasonal Park & Choose Permit should contact the vendor for assistance.

The Car Park Operator is ParkingEye Ltd Wye Valley Visitor Centre is neither appointed nor qualified to provide an Alternative Dispute Resolution; ParkingEye cannot disclose evidence of infringement under Data Protection Regulations - so it would not be right for our staff to intervene in a dispute between ParkingEye and its customer. Our company and staff do not take the side of ParkingEye against you, nor take your side against ParkingEye.

How to get Alternative Dispute Resolution
The appeal process is explained in a video from (Welsh language version available on the page).

The details for the Wye Valley Visitor Centre Car Park are:
  1. Appeal to the Operator ParkingEye Ltd is in the Approved Operator Scheme of the British Parking Association , the Accredited Trade Association (ATA) which ensures that the checks and balances required by the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 are in place. See the Parking Charge Notice for instructions or log in to the ParkingEye Driver Portal .
  2. Appeal to the professional, impartial and independent Alternative Dispute Resolution Provider for arbitration if your appeal to the Operator fails. The ADR Provider appointed by the BPA is PoPLA (Parking on Private Land Appeals), a branch of Ombudsman Services which is certified under the Alternative Dispute Resolution Regulations 2015. PoPLA is not in the pay of either operators or appellants. Instead, PoPLA charges the BPA a set fee regardless of the outcome so that appeal outcomes are not driven by commerciality. See the Operator's rejection notice for how to appeal to PoPLA.
Appeals to the Operator or ADR Provider do not prevent you from pursuing your issue through other channels, such as complaining to the ParkingEye in writing (which does not actually appeal the PCN), or the courts.
