POPLA to adjourn the consideration of appeals from Friday 27th November 2020 – 28th February 2021
UPDATE: Due to the impact of COVID-19 to many businesses across the country, POPLA (Parking On Private Land Appeals), the independent appeals service for Parking Charge Notices, has taken the decision to adjourn consideration of appeals from Friday 27 November 2020 until 28 February 2021.
- All cases received after midnight on 27 November will be placed on hold
- Apellants must submit an evidence pack for pre-existing cases with a deadline on or before 27 November 2020 – if they don’t, the appeal will be decided based on no operator evidence
- Pre-existing cases with a deadline after 27 November 2020 will be placed on hold (unless the apellant has already provided an evidence pack)
- POPLA will also adjourn any appeal where the motorist wants to comment on an operator evidence pack but says they are unable to do so
- Motorists will still be able to register new appeals on the POPLA website and by post after 27 November 2020
- The motorist will be informed that they will have the opportunity to submit further appeal details and evidence at a later date
- POPLA will contact motorists to invite them to provide further details when we resume consideration of appeals
- The cases will then be dealt with in line with our standard process
- Please note: If an appeal has been adjourned, please do not provide an evidence pack until POPLA say they have resumed consideration of the appeal. Providing the evidence pack earlier causes the system to progress the case.
- POPLA will contact motorists with a recently registered appeal (where the operator has not provided a response) and let them know their appeal is adjourned
- POPLA will contact each motorist when a new appeal is placed on hold to confirm the process
- POPLA will ensure motorists are aware that they cannot be pursued for payment while their appeal is registered with POPLA
- POPLA currently have a stock of appeals ready for assessment and will consider these appeals as normal
