  1. Unfortunately, due to both my parents who reside in Cyprus being unwell I wasn’t in the country from 18 July - 12 September 2021 which is the period when the notices were issued, I’ll submit the TE7/9 forms as advised. If as you say the enforcement order stands is is the level of the fee that jumps from £203 to £513 from the 7-20 September 2021 correct? The sudden step up isn’t broken down to explain the nature of this addition.
  2. I received a visit yesterday from Newlyn and handed a letter of intent on taking goods Stating that a notice of enforcement for £513 was issued 16/9/21 and were representing Camden council. This was for a parking offence on the 8 March 2021 at 08:36. The contravention was code 21 which is namely that my car was parked wholly or partly in a suspended bay. I’m parking the car I did notice there was some placards on the picture signpost I noticed that one head stated that the suspension was lifted at the end of the 5th of March 2021. I have parked the night before, a Sunday night around 10pm In my attention was yours focused on what was immediately in front of me rather than what was all around me down the street as the counsellor pointed out in his response to my appeal. So much so that I was conscious that the parking charges will recommence on the Monday morning and indeed paid via the Ringo app £17.34 for a parking session commencing 8 March 2021 08:05 a.m. and completed at 12:30 pm - the ticket was issued on the 8 March 2021 at 08:36. My appeal was sent on the 19th of March 2021 and I received a response on the 31st of March 2021 attach a copy of the redacted version. The truth is I had thought I referred the matter to the London Tribunal within 28 days of the rejection but I can’t find any record of it. I have submitted a TE9 to the TEC and held off Newlyn for a day or two. Of note however is the climb of the demand of money from them. At the stage of the order For recovery of unpaid penalty charge the amount was for £203 pounds dated 10th of August 2021 and then on the 7th of September 2021 notice from Newlands races the amount owed to £278 with a £75 compliant stage fee. A hand delivered letter on 30 September 2021 from Newlyn states the outstanding amount to be £513. LBC_PCN858A 08-03-21 REDACTED_compressed.pdf

  4. dear cag i 'm standing for the recovery of the parking charge and i would like your help in getting this sorted. you'll see from the images that the roads in canary wharf are all restricted and the signage doesnt indicate where you can park. i also think its a money making racket especially when in that area there is harcly traffic jams and very few cars around. at 04:30 there is practically not a car in sight. so what is the reason for these over the top parking restrictions? i havent responded to these letters at all.

  6. Apologies for the delay: An ANPR camera did indeed capture the ‘OVERSTAY’ as stated on the initial notice as the reason for the penalty (the allowance for which is 0 mins and the only way you are eligible to ‘park’ is to obtain a ticket from the machine or register your registration which is in the lobby of the hotel which I was not given access to due to COVID-19). 1 Date of the infringement: 4/7/2020 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date]:11/8/2020 3 Date received: 13/7/2020 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012?

  7. Occurrence: Courtyard by Marriott Airport Way, Luton I have received such a huge penalty of £100 for a legitimate enquiry about room availability. I was given by post a PARKING CHARGE NOTICE for parking at the front of the hotel car park last year (07/2020). It was just after 3 am that I was at Luton airport looking for a place to stay as I had unexpectedly been recalled to be on standby for potential work at a hospital in the area. I was unable to book anything online for that night because of the time and so therefore I drove up to the reception area of the hotel and attempted to speak to the receptionist who would not incidentally speak via the intercom or come to the door. Eventually, I got his attention and I was not allowed into the building as it was during lockdown. Trying try to communicate through the glass door obviously took a lot longer than it would’ve done normally had he let me in. I was turned away and I was in the drop off area with my partner present in the car the entire time for no more than a period of 20 minutes. The parking lot was fairly empty which is understandable given that this was due in lockdown and even in central London on a red route there is an allowance of 20 minutes and nationally parking fees were suspended let alone the issuing of fines. Firstly, at a time when the country was coming together where councils across the country was the suspending parking charges and assisting key workers in facilitating the ease of movement to work the Marriott Hotel group ignore this fact in their response to my complaint. They have referred me to the sub-contractor Parking Eye, who refused to consider my letter of appeal saying it’s too late. In fact, my appeal was sent to the Marriott who have acknowledged receipt but failed to respond as the manager of the hotel had left soon after it was received. On chasing this up with the Marriott group they yet again refer to Parking Eye. They in turn have referred it to the Enforcement Officers who have sent me a text to say they will be visiting me at home. Is there anything that I can do?
  8. As advised I called the court it transpired after being told why the amount was so high that my change of plea from not guilty to guilty wasn't considered I have written to them to ask that the case be reviewed in light of this omission. I have not yet paid the fine and I have since received a further steps notice so hopefully will get a reply before the end of the month. Thanks for the advice
  9. @Man in the middle: Can you please let me know what you would advise me to do as I didn’t attend the hearing and I’m not currently working and not claiming benefits. Furthermore, I was told to pay a fine initially but decided that I would appeal.
  10. I was the owner of the car, at the time, it was registered in my name. It has since been transferred into my fathers name as he uses this car 95% of the time and I had only borrowed it for that journey. The appeal decision was taken after the adjudicator adjourned the hearing for 14 days so that it gave Newham Council chance to state their case against my appeal. They failed to respond and do the decision was made on the basis that they had no arguement against my appeal and therefore my appeal was upheld. As for the additional costs, the adjudicator felt that the council didn’t act vexatiously and thus thought the impoundment was done unlawfully.
  11. I parked in a shared residents bay and received a PCN as my stay exceeded by 10 minutes what I had paid. Twenty minutes after the PCN was issued the car was towed away. It wasn’t causing any obstruction or preventing other residents from paring as there was 65% remaining capacity when I returned to the scene 40 minutes after the parking ticket expired. Once at the pound (£15 cab), I had to pay the fine to release the car (£200 pound + £65 PCN). However, I was driving as Third Party cover from my insurance taken out on my car. The pound refused to let me drive the car 50yards to pounds boundary stating I wasn’t covered. I asked if the person who drove it/parked it could bring it to the gate but they refused to help. It cost £225 insurance to drive it 50 yards. in my appeal, the London Tribunal adjudicator upheld the PCN, refunded me the pound fee £200 on the basis the council didn’t respond to my challenge but didn’t feel the council acted vexatiously so didn’t instruct them to refund my mitigating losses, namely the insurance £225 plus cab fare to the pound £15. If I wo the appeal, surely by refactor these should be reimbursed because I don’t believe I should have even towed in the first pace. If this was conceded, it would follow these are expenses that I wouldn’t have incurred? I don’t know of any other council that tows cars not for at of the reasons which authorises the towing after 30minutes. The council must have authorised its removal minutes after the PCN was issued. This I consider vexatious as well as refusing to bring it 50yds to the gate. Is there anything more that can be done to retrieve these funds?
  12. Thank you for your comments. I appealed to the DVLA twice and they rejected them on both occasions. I don’t recall being offered a fixed penalty but I’ll need to check that. This was the content of a covering letter I sent to the court: I have appealed to the DVLA twice that the car was purchased from an online auction for salvage cars and that it was not roadworthy nor driveable as evidenced by the pre-inspection purchase report by an independent mechanic that was submitted to the DVLA and was received from the merchant with an MOT though no insurance or SORN. It was in effect in-trade and was recovered by the mechanic for inspection and then a couple of weeks later to my address and remained on the drive and thus off the public road. Since the Court Order has been received I have sought legal advice whereupon I was I was informed, having not known at the time, of the change in the law that the car had to be insured even though it wasn’t on a public highway and was not in any condition to be driven. This is essentially the basis of my plea change. When pleading not guilty, there were several mitigating factors that existed that led me to believe that the car could only be insured once the repairs were completed. I had in fact checked with my current broker what the cost of insuring the car was before purchasing the car to calculate its running cost. In its current state there wasn’t a single insurance company willing to insure the car and he had said that it would be more difficult once repaired but certainly not impossible but at a higher premium. Therefore, it wasn’t an option as far as I was concerned. Furthermore, given that the damages to the car rendered it immobile I again thought that the necessity for insuring the car would be at the time the car was brought back to road-worthy condition. Arrangements were made for the car to be inspected by two body repair shops and at the time the notice was served it was indeed with a mechanic. I have informed the DVLA of this fact and provided them with the name and address of the mechanics who had the car in their possession. Unfortunately, to verify with which mechanic the car was with the DVLA have not provided me with the exact date and time and address of the alleged offence despite requesting it two times. The DVLA were invited to contact the mechanics to verify my claim that it wasn’t in my possession and that the car had been recovered from my address to the mechanics as it is in a non=driveable condition. I have pointed out that I always wish to avoid breaking the law and as a precautionary measure I renewed the road tax as I was concerned that whilst out of my possession the car might be placed on a public highway and to avoid breaking any law I put this in place. Therefore, there was no intention of circumventing any law or attempting to save money. I do acknowledge that I was regrettably unaware of any change in the law stating that a car must be insured regardless of whether it is driven or not unless a SORN is in place. Once I did become aware of this fact, I immediately declared the car off road and a SORN was put in place. After receiving legal advice and informed of the facts I am now changing my plea to guilty and I accept full responsibility for failing to comply with the law and I am very sorry for not seeking advice and/or not having reviewed current laws. This is my first such offence and my first purchase of a salvage car from an online site. I am a Medical Oncologist by profession and therefore have no experience in the world of motor trading and repairs. Since the incident occurred I've have a SORN in place and have received a quote for its repair. It will of course be registered for road tax and insurance once these are completed and this offense will never happen again. I have been off work for 3 years due to mental health and now have fully recovered. I have volunteered to return to the NHS to assist in the current medical crisis but until I do return to work I have no income nor am I receiving any benefits. I am currently living in the parental home in order to save money and all of my savings are accounted for in daily living expenses, contribution for my stay and towards continuous professional education and subscriptions/registration fees. Please take this into consideration when reviewing my case such that you kindly reduce my fine or any additional penalties under these mitigating circumstances. I’m sure I filled in an expenditure / income chart showing the costs of daily living exceeds my income. regards
  13. January 2019 I purchased from an online car auction a car written off category NS. I was unaware that the car had to be classified as being on a SORN once the TAX had ran out and it remained on my drive until I had the funds to repair it which was done last year in August 2020. Unfortunately, whilst the car was with a Mechanic for a quotation which required it to be towed to a couple of them for the estimates to be obtained, it must've been picked up by a police ANPR camera. I say this as I have never received an answer to my question of where it was and at what time as it definitely wasn't with me when the alleged contravention occurred. I had a statement written and sent to the DVLA to say this and the mechanic was happy to verify this was the case. Nevertheless, whilst I pleaded guilty to the fact that I wasn't aware you needed insurance as formerly it was acceptable to not do so if the car was on private property and it wasn't fit to drive. I challenged the penalty on the basis that this was my first offence, I was unaware and the car couldn't have been driven even in my absence and would have been on private property of the mechanic. The hearing got posponed several times due to COVID-19 and then on the 30 April 2021 the magistrate court decided the sun fine was 220 + 20 for victim support + 200 court costs. I have explained that I am out of work though not claiming Universal Credit at the moment as I am using personal savings. Nevertheless, I think this amount is unfair and want to know if this could be appealed? No information is provided to say that I can.
  14. I did get a good outcome by appealing the Newham fine but only in regards to the removal of the vehicle to the pound. This was because the court didn’t hear back from Newham when notified of my appeal for this case. The court ordered the repayment for the equivalents mount the removal and impounding.
