Loading bay fine

I parked in a goods loading bay restricted to 30mins in Southampton high street
outside the shop which has a trade account with me to pick up 4 large stock items in a large 4x4 and was 10mins at most and got a 70 fine code 23 which means
wrong type of vehicle, ie not a van ! although I am a trade supplier to the High Street shop, do I have a case to fight or should I just pay up?

White dotted lines on the road with LOADING BAY wording and a small sign plate on an 8 foot saying goods loading bay 30mins

Get a letter from the shop stating that you are a trade customer & that you were collecting. Provide proof of your commercial credentials, VAT reg, company reg etc. & fight, go to court if necessary. Magistrates are generally on your side as long as you can give them something to go on. In the first instance, appeal to the local authority & make it clear that you will take it all the way & claim costs when you win.

Fight it you were loading and you have a contract with the shop, you did nothing wrong, they can't dictate what vehicle you use to do your job

Parking

Thanks for your support the keywords seems GOODS VEHICLE Loading Bay and not just Loading Bay but the definition of goods vehicle is a grey area after having a google about all this, just wondered if anyone has won a similar case?

Counsel's opinion here on similar cases may inform your decision...

Is your 4x4 a pickup or other dual purpose vehicle? E.G. defender, is it VAT reclaimable? i.e commercial?

Aren't most cars taxed as PLG private light goods anyway?
