In a new statement, a spokesperson for PPS said: “Mr Corben admits that there are no legal grounds for disputing the parking charge and therefore he ought to have settled the charge at the discounted rate of £60, when he had the opportunity to do so.
“The time in dealing with (a) the appeal (including the IAS appeal) (b) the press’ enquiries and (c) instructing solicitors comes at a cost, which we have incurred as a result of Mr Corben failing to comply with our terms and conditions.
“Mr Corben is relying on us extending him a goodwill gesture to cancel the charge, which in essence implies that he is seeking preferential treatment over other motorists, who do take it upon themselves to familiarise themselves and comply with our terms and conditions of parking.
“Our approach as a business is predicated on consistency and we do not see any basis for cancelling the charge.”
