Motorist enquires and complaints

POPLA to adjourn consideration of appeals from Friday 27 November

The second UK wide lockdown has meant the shutdown of many businesses, which has a knock-on effect to the car parks serving those businesses. Given that the latest lockdown has impacted operator and motorist ability to deal with the appeals process, POPLA has taken the decision to adjourn consideration of appeals from Friday 27 November 2020 until 4 January 2021.

Our role as an Accredited Trade Association is to investigate alleged breaches of our Approved Operator Scheme Code of Practice where evidence can be supplied.

It is important to note we are unable to investigate complaints that are not covered by our Approved Operator Scheme Code of Practice and nor are we able to become involved in the appeals process or compel our members to cancel a Parking Charge Notice

Submit an enquiry or make a complaint about an Approved Operator Scheme member
