Camden council have been found guilty by a parking adjudicator of deliberately removing evidence from the information given to motorists at appeal.
As a result of the council not making a full and proper disclosure the motorist’s ticket was cancelled by the adjudicator. This has happened on more than one occasion and it is thought may apply to many thousands of cases where the motorist lost at appeal.The motorists position was prejudiced because information which the motorists could have used as a basis of appeal had been removed be Camden. Ironically Camden has one of the best records of winning at adjudication!In a landmark parking tickets decision a Parking Adjudicator has held that Camden Council have acted unlawfully and failed to make full disclosure of evidence to motorists when cases are submitted to the Parking Adjudicator.
In a landmark parking tickets decision a Parking Adjudicator has held that Camden Council have acted unlawfully and failed to make full disclosure of evidence to motorists when cases are submitted to the Parking Adjudicator.
The case was handled by parking expert Barrie Segal who has had many successes in exposing councils who have acted wrongly or even illegally.
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.
There have also been cases in Camden where they provided copy parking tickets to the adjudicator that were different from the ones issued to the motorist. One such case is case number (Case 2090479625 Hilton v- Camden).
