As you can see, the best appeal reasons have nothing to do with mitigation and are purely based on legal reasons why a parking charge notice should be cancelled.

However even if you raise some of these legal arguments, if you then name the driver, some of these arguments can become null and void because the law would not apply if the driver is named.

Submit Appeal To Horizon Parking

Use Parking Mate UK to write you appeal, we will give you the simple instructions needed to submit the appeal correctly and avoid any mistakes.

Horizon Parking have designed their appeal forms in a way that will invalidate your appeal if you select a reason that voids your legal rights.

For example, on some parking companies they have the following options as the reason for appeal:

  • I paid for parking
  • I did not see any signs
  • I did not realise that I had to pay for parking
  • my permit fell off the windscreen
  • I displayed my blue badge

While these options seem helpful, they force you to admit that you were driving, and as a result if he selected one of his options, it would invalidate any legal arguments you put forward.

So we highly recommend you follow our instructions to submit your appeal after you finish getting your legal letter.

Remember, once the appeal is submitted, do not contact the parking company to check for updates as this could result in them sending a response to you quicker.

Horizon Parking Fine Appeal Points To Remember:

Send Your Appeal To POPLA

If Horizon Parking rejects your appeal, you can forward the appeal to POPLA for a final decision.

This will be the final opportunity to use the appeal process to challenge your ticket. You simply have to submit the appeal letter we prepare and the appeal checklist to the adjudicator to make a decision.

The decision from the tribunal is binding on Horizon Parking, but it is not binding on the motorist. Therefore if your appeal is based on legal arguments and if the tribunal does not make this in your favour, it can still be contested in your county court based on the same legal arguments.

Both POPLA and IAS are known to refuse legitimate appeals, however if contested in the county court, the same arguments have been successful in winning the court case.

POPLA appeal points to remember:

  • We recommend paying a parking charge if the final appeal fails unless your appeal is based on legal arguments.
  • The IAS will not consider appeals based on legal arguments, so we recommend defending your case in court if your appeal is based on strong legal arguments
  • The operator have to dispute all points raised in your appeal letter, 1 point is enough to get the parking charge dismissed, so the more points you have, the better.

Our credible legal letters and clear step-by-step instructions help you present your case to Horizon Parking in a professional manner, to improve your chance of winning your case and avoiding parking fines.

Horizon Parking Parking Fine Scotland and Northern Ireland

If you live in Scotland or Northern Ireland, you should not appeal to POPLA because they will ask the driver to appeal. Therefore, you can ignore the parking charge if you made the appeal to the operator as the registered keeper and did not name the driver.

Similarly, residents of Scotland and Northern Ireland who never provided driver details, can make a subject access request to find out if the parking company have processed their keeper information without legitimate reason to do so.

In this situation, they can then make a claim for Breach of Data Protection Act 2018 and the compensation could be up to £750 for single cases.

We recommend you use Parking Mate UK to defend your case and we will help you address this issue.
