On 1 October 2015, the operation of POPLA is passing from London Councils to Ombudsman Services Limited. As part of the transition process, the British Parking Association has asked London Councils to cease registering new appeals from 21 August 2015.
However, once you have been notified that we have received and forwarded your intention to appeal, no further enforcement action can proceed until after the appeal has been finally decided.
Any delay in appeals being registered obviously does not affect the strict requirements, including time limits, provided by Schedule 4 to the Protection of Freedom Act 2012, from applying. Equally it does not affect the requirements of the BPA Code of Practice regarding dealing with original representations within the timescales provided.

Assessors at London Councils will not determine any appeals after 30 September 2015, whatever date they were registered.
The statement of the Lead Adjudicator regarding cases adjourned pending handing down of the decision of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom (available here) remains in force.
