Dear owner/manager's name or Sir/Madam,
Re: [insert the PCN reference number here]
On [insert date] I parked my vehicle [insert vehicle registration mark] at [insert location of car park].
When I returned to my vehicle I discovered a parking charge notice affixed to my vehicle. The parking charge notice stated that I had [insert the contravention code or description i.e parked without displaying a valid pay and display ticket].
I believe I am not in breach of this contravention for the following reasons;
[insert evidence or your version of events for example
- I had purchased a valid pay and display ticket
- There was no signage
- The signage was not clear enough to show that the maximum stay was 2 hours/the area was reserved for permit holders only etc.
- The bay markings are worn so it is was impossible to see if my vehicle was within the markings]
Please find enclosed copies of photographs taken at the time/of the scene and a copy of my pay and display ticket which was valid at the time the parking charge notice was issued.
In light of the above it is clear that I am not liable for the parking charge and I request that the parking charge notice is cancelled accordingly.
[Insert your name]
