    Default Smart Parking PCN - Energie gym Sheldon Birmingham - now Gladstones Solicitors Letter Before Claim

    Hi All
    Im looking for some advice on this one.

    Back on 20/12/17 i went to park on a carpark behind some shops previously this was an actual carpark for use of shoppers.

    As i went into the entrance of carpark i noticed a sign on the wall on right hand side as you enter the carpark so i pulled to the left hand side to read it
    (The entrance is an ally way between 2 shops as shown in my Picture There is no signs visible until you enter the carpark)
    It said that the carpark is now for gymicon use and to check terms and conditions in the carpark

    I left my car where it was which wasnt actually parked in a designated space the carpark in a space and had a look for the terms and conditions but all i could find was the same signs as id already read.

    I walked round to the gymicon entrance but couldnt see any terms and conditions there
    So i just got in my car and turned around and left
    i was there for 7 minutes

    then on 11th jan 2018 i received a parking chargeicon notice which i ignored as i never actually parked in the car park just pulled over to one side of the entrance but the number plate reading system had clocked me as i entered

    on the 13th feb i received a letter from DRP asking for 160
    i contacted DRP and a sent them [I]CPR 31.14 Request

    I then received another letter from DRP on 26 fen 2018 thanking me for my communication but explaining that i couldnt challenge the charge

    I ignored that and heard nothing until a few days ago when Gladstones solicitors wrote with a letter before claimicon dated 4th feb 2019

    I understand that they will take it to county courticon

    Should i just wait for a county court claim and try defend this or is there another avenue.

    1st can you complete this:

    https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.u...-Viewing)-nbsp

    2nd you stayed less than 10 mins.
    you are allowed to take a minimum of 10mins to read things, as you did and decide.

    not sure why you sent a CPR?? there is no court claim yet.

    you need to send them the std snotty insulting letter you'll find in numerous threads here
    inc a bit about the 10mins grace period.

    can you please put all those docs/pix in ONE multipage PDFicon
    read uploadicon.

    I've removed your single page links else we'll be here all day downloading single pages.

    ah useless smart parking
    urm interesting
    you say no pixs on the NTK?
    then it cant be an ANPR capture then?
    but eitherway they are either out of time from the NTK if they claim it was ANPR
    or
    they are too soon, if they claim it was a vanishing windscreen ticket?

    I wonder if this is a local taking pictures under commission [naughty under GDPRicon] and sending them in

    can you get the NTK up please
    so we can have a laugh?
    before you do anything
    as ericsbrother can have a field day here with a good snotty letter for you..

    thread title updated

    Gladstones have asked that payment be made to Drips.
    That means the letter came from Drips using Gladstones headed paper. Just shows the kind of crooks they are.

    Tell gladstones that
    "no contract was entered into for several reasons and in any case their clients havent complied withe their ATA code of practice and allowed a minimum of 10 minutes grace period. Gladstones should speak to Will and John at the IPC and get them to tell Smart that they have no cause for action and any court claim will result in another epic fail for Gladstones for a multitude of reasons that will all be brought out at the time."

    you may not appreciate the context of this but they certainly will. Smart have failed to create a liability, the NTK isnt POFA compliant and the signage is pants. I would also bet they dont have the correct permissions to be there either.
