  1. Whoops, I should have said Station YARD Twickenham. I have uploaded the photos and GSV link to my pepipoo post: http://forums.pepipoo.com/index.php?showtopic=124184&st=0&gopid=1435779entry1435779
  2. I have managed to upload the file to the pepipoo website on which my post has a similar title, so should be fairly easy to find. "Code 622 - Parked with one or more wheels on or over a footpath or any part of a road other than a carriageway (partly on footway)"
  3. Hello everyone Unfortunately, my husband has gone and got himself another PCN. This time it's one that was stuck on his car I haven't seen any photos of the situation yet - I think they will be uploaded tomorrow at the earliest as he only received the PCN today. I was trying to upload the pdf but this website says that I have the incorrect file extension Is anyone able to help me understand what I've done wrong? I tried following the instructions about uploading files. Thanks
  4. Boom!!! We won!! Thanks all! It was because of the generic response which didn't detail any reasons for the rejection :-)
  5. Hello The deadline for the reduced fee is tomorrow. Has anyone got any thoughts? I thought it was the case that the council should respond to all points made in our representations rather than giving a generic rejection? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks Oodly
  6. Hello all again We've finally heard back from the council...with a rejection. Please see the photos on the pepipoo website and any comments/thoughts would be much appreciated. Many thanks oodly http://forums.pepipoo.com/index.php?showtopic=121113&st=0&gopid=1407975entry1407975
  7. What do people think of the following draft informal representations? I wish to make the following informal representations against the PCN that I received on 21 June 2018. 1) There was no contravention of a prescribed order. The PCN states as follows: If neither payment nor representations have been received before the end of the period of 28 days beginning with the date of this notice, a Charge Certificate may be sent to the keeper which increases the amount of the full penalty charge by a further 50% to £195.00. If the Charge Certificate is not paid, the increased amount will be registered as a debt at the Traffic Enforcement (Bulk) Centre and a warrant may be issued for Civil Enforcement Agents to recover. However, the above is legally incorrect. I believe that a charge certificate cannot be sent to me before the end of 28 days beginning with the date of service of the PCN (rather than from the date of the notice). The relevant law is under Schedule 1 to the London Local Authorities and Transport for London Act 2003 (the “2003 Act”), including more specifically paragraph 5(1) and 5(2) which state that a charge certificate can be served if the PCN is not paid and no representations have been made before the end of the period of 28 days beginning with “the date on which the penalty charge notice is served” (para 5(2)(a)). Your legally incorrect wording means that you might send out a charge certificate to me after 10 July 2018 (this is 28 days from the date of the notice) whereas you are not allowed to send out a charge certificate to me until after 18 July 2018 (this is 28 days from the date of service of the notice – I received it on 21 June 2018). This is crucial because I am legally allowed to make representations until the end of the period of 28 days beginning with the date of service of the notice (paragraph 1(3) of Schedule 1 to the 2003 Act). However, I would be at risk of receiving a charge certificate before I had had the chance to submit my representations – for example, if I was going to submit my formal representations on 17 July 2018 (which would be within the 28 day period from the date of service which was 21 June 2018), by this time I might well have received a charge certificate as according to you, you can serve it after 10 July 2018 (which is wrong as mentioned above). In addition, your legally incorrect wording means that I am losing out on 8 days in which I could have spent writing and submitting my formal representations as, in light of the illegal wording, I would have to submit my representations by 10 July instead of 18 July to avoid the possible charge certificate being incorrectly (prematurely) sent out to me. Given that I am dyslexic, this policy puts me at a particular disadvantage compared with those who are non-dyslexic as I require additional time to read and digest what I am reading. Therefore, the council is also in breach of section 19 of the Equality Act 2010 (indirect disability discrimination) in applying this illegal policy of sending out a charge certificate too early and thereby shortening the time within which I can make representations. Furthermore, given that I only received the PCN on 21 June 2018, but I still only have 14 days from the date of the notice within which to submit informal representations, this has only left me with 6 days in which to read and compile my informal grounds of appeal rather than closer to 14 days had the PCN been sent out after it had been produced. Again, the policy of delaying the sending out of the PCN is indirectly discriminatory under section 19 of the Equality Act 2010 for the same reasons as stated above. Please could you confirm the date on which the notice was sent out and why you waited potentially 7 days before sending the notice first class (assuming it was sent on 20 June 2018). 2) Other compelling reasons I would add that this is the first PCN I have received in this council’s area and, at the time, I was dropping a colleague home from work, which I was doing as a favour. In light of the above, I trust that the PCN will be cancelled. I look forward to hearing from you.
  8. OK thanks, is the Notice to Keeper the same as the actual PCN? Sorry if this is a dumb question.
  9. Thanks for your replies. I have added a photo of the brake hose pipe on the pepipoo site if you want to take a look. It's a bit scary if someone has deliberately cut it Does anyone know what the "date of service of the notice" is? Is it the date on which I received the PCN? Thanks
  10. Turns out that our car's brake hose pipe was cut last night...is there any way someone could have made the redacted address visible on the pepipoo website?! Someone on pepipoo has said there is a major flaw with the pcn so I'm hoping we can get off on a technicality. I'm on maternity leave on basically zero pay so it would be good if the money could be spent elsewhere!
  11. Thank you so much for your detailed reply which I will look at properly shortly. In relation to the details on the photo, what is the reason for normally redacting them? I can't find how to edit or even delete the post on pepipoo
  12. Thank you for looking and for the google maps link. Should there not be a red no entry sign just before the road on the left like there is for the road in front which is also no entry? Also, looking at google maps just now, I can see how someone could mistake the white line which is part of the cycle lane for the usual white line on a two way road, if that makes sense? It's a bit misleading...had there been a red no entry sign perhaps it would have been clearer?
  13. OK, thanks! The world of posting has changed a lot in a few years. Unfortunately, I've got a screaming 6.5 month old baby on my lap so I can't now faff around with pdfs (plus the instructions don't seem to make any sense to me from a quick read). Thankfully, I've just managed to use my tinypic links (that took me ages) on the pepipoo website, so if anyone wants to help then you'll find the photos on there with a subject line mentioning "PCN 52M" Thanks for reading
