  1. Hi Mandak, I've not been given a hearing date yet, so it looks like you will be in court before me! What I have found out so far, after a freedom of information request, is, ' The signage at Perry Barr One Stop in relation to traffic signs is excluded from Birmingham City Councils (BCC) direct control and therefore are permitted and do not require planning consent'. And, 'There is no Traffic Regulations Order issued by BCC' currently in place. I've got my fingers crossed for you and hope you have taken the advise given by the guys on here, looking forward to hearing you
  2. Hi Dx, EB, Oddfellow, I've been reading an awful lot of transcripts/cases on the Parking Prankster's site and the issues raised here on CAG over the last few days have come to the conclusion that these parasites, along with their sidekicks (in this case Gladstones), hope we'll remain ignorant of the law and the BPA's code of conduct and just pay up! Thanks all for your encouragement to fight on and your continued assistance....BP
  3. Hi EB, DX, DQ filled out and sent back to the court and duly served on the Claimant's solicitor. I have requested my local court for the hearing. My thoughts at the moment are to continue trying to get a definitive written answer from my local council regarding PP and to start getting a court bundle together. I could not get through to anyone at the council prepared to tell me anything regarding PP, so I've sent in a FOI request. As for the court bundle, I believe I should gather as much case law supporting my position as I can find! Having said that, I'm hoping
  4. Hi EB, Thank you for your continued support and advice, it is, as always, appreciated. I've just replied to their email as per your advice and will read up on CPR 27.14 to see exactly what's allowed...BP
  5. Hi Dx, Thanks for the response and your points taken on board. I reckon I'm more than happy to have an oral hearing at my local court... Is it the AQ stage next?
  6. Hi EB, Dx, Earlier today I received an email from Gladstones, your thoughts on this would be appreciated: We act for the Claimant and have notified the Court of our Client’s intention to proceed with the claim. Please find enclosed a copy of our Client’s completed Directions Questionnaire, which will be filed with the court upon their request. You will note we intend to request a special direction; i.That the case be dealt with on the papers and without the need for an oral hearing This request is sought simply because the matter is in our Client’s opinion rela
  7. Hi Ericsbrother, I appreciate your help with this, I'll be a little bit more forceful when I call them again, thanks...BP
  8. Hi Ericsbrother, I have tried in the past to talk with an actual person, without success, but based on your thoughts I'll keep on trying! What is the correct PP that they need to have in place?....BP
  9. Hi ericsbrother, I 've requested proof of planning permission and I've been in touch with my local council's planning department for the same, awaiting any response. BP just checked through my junk mail and found an email from my local council showing how to access the PP info. It gives the document ref, date of application and briefly states : 'Landlords advertising for the shopping centre directional signage along Walsall Road and within car park'. It goes on to state that this was approved. I checked through all planning permission applications for t
  10. Hi Dx, Thanks for that, I've updated my request and will be posting out today...BP
  11. Hi Dx, I've had a bash at putting a CPR 31.14 request (loosely based on the template in the library, I'm just highlighting here the bits I've changed) together to send to Gladstones, could you take a look and let me know if I'm in the right arena or if I'm barking up the wrong tree? ....BP CPR 31.14 Request. On 17 June 2016 I received the Claim Form dated 15 July 2016 in this case issued by you out of the County Court Business Centre. I can confirm that I have returned my acknowledgement of service indicating my intention to contest and counter claim your entire claim. Pl
  12. Hi Dx, Thanks for taking a look, I've read the thread you outlined and its almost identical (I'm keeping an eye on it for updates) and several others too. I've acknowledged service, ticked defend in full and sent back (signed for) via royal mail. I will update as and when further info available....BP
  13. Hi All, I'm hoping that someone will be able to guide me through defending the following claim.
