  1. Personally , for 2nd & 3rd, I'd forget about leaves obscuring the DYL's. In the council pics taken 10 days before yours, the DYL's can be seen and there is nothing like the amount of leaves as in your pics and they wll reject on those grounds alone. Far better to concentrate solely on "continuous contravention" as they then have no wriggle room and if they reject must justify why. Mention that their own photographic evidence from all 3 pcn's show the vehicle in the same position, confirming that the vehicle did not move for the whole period
  2. Previously you said the 1st pcn was on 10th Nov, if so the deadline is today
  3. As long as you challenge before 24th the pcns will be on hold until they reply. I don't know how efficient Richmond are, but it could be 5-6 weeks.(esp with covid) If rejected, as is likely, they will allow a further 14 days for the discount, so that's 7-8 weeks before anything has to be paid. As I said, it's only at that point will you have to decide whether to continue with all 3, thus losing the discount or accept you were in contravention, pay the discount on the first and be prepared to dispuute the continuous ones as far as adjudication if necessary. To get to adjudication
  4. You need to submit a challenge for each pcn (separately, but refer to the others) before 24th Nov. 1st one DYL were totally obscured by leaves, 2nd and 3rd 'continuous contravention'. They will reject, but re-offer the discount. At that point you will have to decide whether to continue with all 3, thus losing the discount or accept you were in contravention, pay the discount on the first and be prepared to dispuute the continuous ones as far as adjudication if necessary. You would be risking the full penalrty on both but there have been numerous Tribunal cases to suppo
  5. That doesn't tell us much! Show us. Have you looked the pics for all 3 pcns. Even if they don't back up the leaves an gle , they may help confirm the vehicle didn't move.
  6. You will certainly be able to have the last two cancelled on the grounds that, since the vehicle was not moved during the whole period, it was a 'continuous contravention', where the convention is that you cannot be punished more than once for a single offence. The council may well reject that, but you would almost certainly win at adjudication, particularly since DYL's are 24/7 , ie not an intermittent restriction and therefore you were in contnuous contravention for the whole period you were parked there. The first pcn is more contentious and would rely heavily on whether the
  7. What are the dates of the 3 pcn's? Are they consequetive days? Google street view does extend up Meadow Close, so post your photos
  8. Make an informal challenge on the grounds that the contravention did not occur. Explain that you were visiting your parents from xxxx(date) till xxxx (date) and clearly displayed a valid visitors permit each day, therefore your vehicle was not in contravention. In addition, between those two dates your vehicle was not moved at all , neither was the vehicle driven away at the time of the alleged contravention. Since the vehicle was present at all times between xxx and xxx, the CEO would not have been prevented from serving a Regulation 9 PCN and therefore by serving
  9. You have completely misunderstood the sign. You can park there for a maximum of 2 hours and cannot return to that parking bay within 2 hours of leaving. Any time must be paid for whether you are there for 20 mins or 2 hours and a ticket showing how long you have paid for must be displayed.
  10. Plenty of iffy points. a) HMCTS do not get invovled until the Charge certificate and Order for Recovery have been issued and the debt registered at HMCTS by the council b) PCN number should be two letters followed by 8 numerals c) Charge certificate cost would be full penalty +50% ie £50 +£25 =£75 not £100 d) contravention desciption is not one of the statutory descriptions e) Location should be a road or carpark not just United Kingdom f) Drive-away PCN's must be served by post
  11. You can pay on the day of travel or by midnight the next charging day.. Appeal to TfL on the grounds that you have already paid within the allowed time and enclose proof of payment.
  12. Congestion charge (£15)an be paid up to midnight the following day. However there is also the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) charge (£12.50) which covers the same area as the CC zone.
  13. This is a moving traffic offence and is dealt with by appealing to the council and subsequently to an adjudicator at the London Tribunals. There is no magistrates court involved and no chance of points on your licence. The crucial evidence is the video, which can be viewed on the council's website. Does this show you actually stopping ?
  14. PCN No:XXXX I challenge the above PCN on the grounds that the contravention did not occur. The PCN alleges that my vehicle was parked on Chapel St, Whaley Bridge, whereas my vehicle was parked on Chapel St, Newtown, New Mills Street whilst I attended the New Bodies Gym. This can be verified by referring to the councils own photographic evidence and the CEO's notes Therefore the alleged contravention did not occur and I look forward to confirmation that the PCN has been cancelled.
  15. You're right Derbyshire doesn't seem to make them available on-line, unlike the vast majority of councils. Doesn't make any difference to your challenge. In addition to pics , the CEO's notebook will show what roads he was patrolling and at what time, so they only need to look at these to realise he wasn't aywhere near Whalley Bridge.
  16. Yes, wrong location is wrong location. When the CEO starts to enter the name on his PDA, it will give a list of possible streets to choose from and he inadvertently clicked on the wrong one. The council cannot re-issue a corrected pcn, but keep te pcn safe just in case they try
  17. Yes, wrong location is fatal for council pcn's. The CEO will have taken pics, which should be available to view on the council's website. Write to the council: PCN No:XXXX I challenge the above PCN on the grounds that the contravention did not occur. The PCN alleges that my vehicle was parked on AAAA Street, whereas my vehicle was parked on BBBB Street as can be ascertained by the councils own photographic evidence. Therefore the alleged contravention did not occur and I look forward to confirmation that the PCN has been cancelled.
  18. You are over-thinking this. No background check will produce any result for a parking contravention. There is no procedure to get the name changed to yours. Just pay it, otherwise it will eventually escalate to bailiffs resulting ina demand for sveral hundredpounds!!
  19. All London bus stops are 'No Stopping At Any Time', which means you have no grounds for appeal irrespective of who is the registered owner. Pay the discounted amount and the matter is closed. It's a civil not criminal offence. There will be no repercussions for your wife in any shape or form.
  20. Once the penalty is paid the case is closed. Unless the OP can show that payment was deducted from his account or a text from PbP confirming parking was extended until such and such a time, he has no grounds to appeal. Best option is to pay the discount and be more vigilant in future.
  21. You can easily check by logging onto moneyclaims and entering the claim no. and passcode
  22. He won't care whether you've got a clean licence or otherwise or even if you have a licence at all. They don't do payment plans, if you lose you have 28 days to pay
  23. Except that the location reference nosare te same in both the still of your reg no. and video. The reg no. is capture by a separate infra-red camera. The only grounds I can see is 'de minimis', in that you are only stationary at the very edge of the box for circa 7 seconds. The council won't agree and you would need to go to adjudication, at which point the full poenalty is payable if you lose. TBH 7 secs is at the edge of what an adjudicator might allow
  24. Excellent. Appeal on the basis that the contravention did not occur. You were unloading heavy pack-flat furniture (include photos or receipts if poss) and although you have a resident permit, all the permit bays near your house were full and this was the nearest available place to park and unload. The CEO only observed your car for 1 minute which was insufficient for him to be certain that unloading was not taking place. You were only parked there for as long as necessary and once you had finished unloading moved your car to a permit bay furter up the road. Since unloading on
