Unhappy with our service POPLA

At POPLA we take complaints about our service very seriously. If you think that we have done something wrong please let us know so we have the chance to put things right quickly and effectively. Your complaint will help us learn from our mistakes and improve our service.

Sometimes the outcome of your appeal is not what you want to hear. Your appeal has independently been reviewed by a professional assessor taking into consideration the relevant law, regulatory rules, guidance and standards and the British Parking Association Code of Practice. You cannot challenge the outcome of your appeal with POPLA. Regardless, you should be satisfied with the level of service you have received free of charge from us. If you disagree with the outcome of your appeal, you will need to follow alternative routes.

We can only investigate complaints that involve allegations of poor service or performance, for example where we have:

  • treated you rudely;
  • failed to keep you updated on progress;
  • caused unnecessary delays;
  • failed to explain things properly; or
  • any other shortfall in service

If you have a complaint about the standard of service that we have provided, please send us an email to
