In a landmark decision a Parking Adjudicator (PATAS) has held that Camden Council parking department has acted unlawfully and failed to make full disclosure of evidence to motorists when cases are submitted to the Parking Adjudicator.

 

In a case brought by parking ticket expert Barrie Segal, founder of the parking ticket website www.appealnow.com on behalf of clients Barrie argued that Camden council parking had removed evidence from the evidence bundle which was required to be sent to all motorists appealing to the Parking Adjudicator.

 

The decision (Case 2100216116 - Hizer - v- Camden) states:

"Mr Segal represents the Appellant and argues that the authority has not served a complete set

of case papers to him and that prejudice has arisen and non-compliance with established

Parking and Traffic Appeals Service directions."

 

The decision goes on to say :

"I find that the authority has not complied with this direction, and that there has been prejudice

to the Appellant by the failure to make full disclosure; this is especially so when the authority

is aware that an Appellant is represented.

The appeal is allowed."

Barrie says, " I have complained about Camden Council's behaviour in dealing with appeals for several months but these complaints have fallen on deaf ears.  There have been cases where evidence in the form of copy parking tickets             supplied to the adjudicator but not submitted to the motorist have been different from the original parking tickets received by the motorist and the motorist was none the wiser." (Case 2090479625 - Hilton -v- Camden)

He went on to say, "It is not surprising in my view that Camden was the council with the lowest percentage of winning appellants (34%) at the Parking Adjudicator. The council's scandalous behaviour in this case and and others I have now won demonstrates that motorists have been treated unfairly particularly where they have relied on the paperwork received from the council.  I believe that motorists who have lost cases at the Parking Adjudicator and have not received the full evidence can seek a refund from Camden Council.
