  1. Thank you all for your help. I will email them today and ask for a copy of the plan.
  2. Thanks both, just to clarify they said I was parked in 'King Edward Court' which is a pedestrianised shopping centre with flats above it. I was parked in a service road which does not have a name underneath the shopping centre. I have asked them whereabouts in the TMO is King Edward Court or the un-named service Road named. I scanned all 55 pages of it, no mention. Their reply was ' The traffic regulation Order does not contain list of roads covered by the regulation , Traffic Regulation Orders apply to the whole Borough. Traffic Regulation Order sets out the law that council enforces in relat
  3. Thats what I thought! When I asked them to direct me to the TMO which covered the un-named service road, they came back sarcastically saying if I didn't know the name of the road.... It wasn't I didn't know, just that it doesn't have a name!! The ticket refers to 'King Edward Court' which is the shopping centre above however in an email reply recently where I asked them to direct me to which of the 55 pages of the TMO mentions the above they said I was parked in 'King Edward Court Service Road' which is not what my ticket says. The current state of play is I made an informal appeal w
  4. I have a link to the councils website where the traffic order is. It doesn't mention any streets by names, is that correct? I would have thought that streets covered would have to be named? In the 55 page document it names streets where parking/business permits are mandatory? At night people are double parked all the way along this service road but tickets are never issued as well as on DYL's in residential areas elsewhere in the town. Lastly the street name on the ticket now differs to what they have referred to it in an email. They have added 'Service Road' on the end of it.
  5. Many thanks Sam. Your help and advice has been very helpful. I just wondered if the fact they put the name of the shopping centre rather than service road on the ticket had any bearing and/or roads had to be named? If you looked on street view as you near the end of the service road, just around the corner there are 2 spaces on the right hand side facing some shops. These were clearly parking spaces at some time. The DYL's are broken and I have photos of these. Going back to my original post I hope that some or all of the arguments will be sufficent for my appeal. Thanks again. Paul
  6. Thanks guys, not run off at all, just been tied up over the weekend. Also I used to get emails saying when someone has replied, checked last night (emails) and nothing. Logged on here today and 8 replies!! Anyway. The service road is beneath King Edward Court Shopping Centre in Windsor. I often park there when shopping as all the yellow lines are incomplete are therefore as I had been told previously, not valid. This is the first time I have got a ticket. I'm told off the record that the council are cracking the whip so their enforcement officers are ticketing everything that isn't moving!
  7. Hi all, I have a PCN for parking on double yellow lines which are broken. Thats the reason I parked there as as far as I knew this meant they were inactive and certainly advice I've seen on here in the past supported that. When did that change and what is the regulation that says they do have to be continuous and barred at each end? The council recently repainted all DYL's around the town that were broken or worn and painted in all the gaps that had been left where repairs had been made to the road. Some of these were only 1-2 feet! The lines where I parked were not re-painted and are in
  8. I did mean they have to have a bar at the end of each section (part of the road they're on) but didn't think I needed to state the obvious?!!
  9. What about his argument that the line has to be solid? I've seen that advice given on here previously and posts from people who have challenged on those ground and won? When did that change?
  10. Does anyone know which regulation it is that says the lines have to be continous and joined up? I've seen it on here before somewhere! Many thanks.
  11. Thanks for this. I have previous experience of the FOS, good and very bad! 2 seperate cases. I fully intend to reply asking for a copy of their recommendation and ticking the box to say I don't accept their decision. What I'm really after is, is there anything specifically I can say in relation to their duty to find dormant accounts? I thought I had read a few years ago that there were now guidelines/code of practice to assist relatives in tracing lost accounts and some sort of tracing service? I thought there was certainly a stronger obligation on them to investigate properly. I just get
  12. Hi John, Good advice above. What you have to understand with employment law is that it is different to criminal law. If an employer has 'Reasonable belief' that you and/or others stole this can be good enough to dismiss you and others!! I don't understand 2 either, please explain. Concentrating on the disciplinary. If you are a member of a union you should ask a union rep to accompany you to the hearings. Most companies won't let you bring a solicitor except in cases as quoted above. You should ask a work colleague to come with you and to take notes at all stages. Don't sign anything you
  13. Hi, I wonder if anyone can advise? I have an old current account with the Co-op which I opened in the 1980's. I did use the account but not for my main banking as the store which had a bank counter in it was closed down so the nearest branch was 16 miles away. There was no internet banking then so having a local branch was essential. I last used the account around 1992. The account still has a small balance and I have decided that I now want to use it again, as my main bank. I wrote to the Co-op who said they could not trace it. I then found my old bank card (Electro
