Help!? Can a Council reverse a decision it has already reversed?
I recently contested a PCN issued by Weymouth Council for parking my Bike outside my flat & won! Woo Hoo right!! Well I Wasn't suprised by this because I had a Valid Parking Permit clearly displayed in a holder attatched to the helmet hook which they are aware of because they gave me a ticket last year & I returned there photographic evidence back to them, circling the White permit standing out like a sore thumb against the Red of my Beautiful Bike. However in a letter explaining the cancellation this time they stated that 'due to the administration costs involved in issuing a PCN, it is unlikely a similar charge will be cancelled in the future'. I'm confused because I don't see how it is fair to say a future charge cannot be cancelled even if a Permit is clearly displayed & the charge is issued in error! Well foolishly I asked the Council to Clarify there reasoning on this because I don't wanna be fearful of parking outside my own flat & getting a fine because a parking official doesn't see my permit (how they can't I don't understand... it's not hiding) anyway you know what there answer was?? To Cancel there Cancellation & demand I pay £50 again!!
I clearly don't want to pay the Swine Fiddlers anything but am worried if I do nothing they'll just put the fine higher. Does anyone know if a council can reverse a decision like that? Can I appeal a 2nd time? Any advie will be gratefully received :-/
