Is a parking charge notice legal? Do I have to pay?

Yes. As long as you were in breach of the conditions of parking, as long as these conditions were properly posted and as long as the penalty is "reasonable", which means up to £60 if paid within 2 weeks; up to £120 if payment is delayed. Beavis v Parking Eye, Supreme Court, November 2015.
