Specific grounds of appeal for this contravention

You should remember that the contravention is failing to comply with a sign indicating a prohibited manoeuvre and not making a prohibited manoeuvre. The authority will need to demonstrate evidence of before, during and after the contravention. Specifically the vehicle approaching the sign, making a prohibited manoeuvre and continuing. In one case the council provided still photographs and a  video but no, no right turn signs were actually shown. You can usually view the video clip and if this does not show you actually passing a sign there is no way that an adjudicator will find in the councils favour as the council must prove the offence. This does not apply if the contravention does not say failing to comply with a sign although the enforcing authority must still show that clear and correct signage was in situ at the time of the alleged contravention..
