The 'Protection of Freedoms Act' came into force on 1st October 2012, which permitted the British Parking Association to set up a voluntary 'appeals' procedure for motorists who wished to challenge tickets issued by private companies on private land
Use of POPLA is free for the motorist and the result is not legally binding. The parking company does however have to pay £27+VAT and must abide by its decision.
One the face of it the 'service' sounds a reasonable and way to challenge 'cowboy' parking operators, some of whom have turned to ticketing as an alternative to clamping, which was also outlawed in the POF Act.
This website is designed to reveal the truth about POPLA and how the vast majority of private parking invoices are STILL completely unenforceable, as they've always been.
