    Default East Cambridge District Coucil - Parking Fixed Penalty

    my son come back from the gym with a parking ticket,

    I wonder how we can appeal, these are the conditions at the time,

    Ely ( cambridgeshire ) has free parking in ALL its public car parks,

    Son attended at Sports Centre / Gym Car park, which was full,
    Many people park there with NO intention of using the gym and walk into town, car park is for sport centre users only.
    No spaces, so son parked on a grass verge, and mentioned this to gym reception and they said should be ok, we know you are a regular user of the gym,

    Ticket was for :

    Parking in a prohibited area - they are no warning sign saying cant park on grass etc
    parking outside a bay or across 2 bays

    Son was not obstructing any walkway or any other vehicles what so ever,

    Seems very steep to fine £60 for a FREE car park,

    any advice?

    Thanks
    kevin

    Normally with FPN's, (unlike PCN's), there is no appeal mechanism - you either pay or plead not guilty at a Magistrates Court.

    Unusually East Cambs allow appeals:
    https://www.eastcambs.gov.uk/parking/parking-fines
    although other than saying there is no signage to the contrary and the gym staff said it would be OK, I'm not sure of any other grounds.

    Unlikely to succeed, but always worth a shot
