The British Parking Association is currently investigating allegations of evidence tampering by parking operator, UK Parking Control.

In the meantime, motorists are advised to continue to appeal parking tickets in the usual way – firstly to the parking operator and then to POPLA if their appeal to the operator is rejected.  If POPLA recognises breaches to the Code of Practice we are notified so that we may take appropriate action.

Breaches to the Code of Practice carry sanction points.  Our scheme of sanctions is designed to raise the standard of behaviour of operators and by applying sanction points we have seen practices change for the better.

Further information will be provided in due course.

Our public advice website Know your parking contains advice and information for motorists wishing to appeal or know more about parking ticket types and enforcement.
