Permission Granted for Judicial Review

A major parking law case supported by NMAG, has been granted permission for Judicial Review by the High Court in Manchester.

The case concerns standard wording on PCNs (Penalty Charge Notices) that was drafted years ago by the Joint Committee of England & Wales, PATROL and has been used ever since by most local authorities outside London.  If successful, the case will mean that literally millions of motorists may be due refunds of up to £70 per PCN wrongly enforced.

The Court has agreed that on the face of it, there is a case to answer that the wording on the PCNs doesn't convey the information that Parliament has explicitly stated must be on every ticket.

Watch this space for more information...
