  1. All - thanks for your detailed responses. Let me respond below. It is a typical new build estate with freehold properties where the estate roads and common spaces are managed by an estate management company instead of the council. We have to pay them an annual fee for park keeping, road cleaning etc. In the covenants the 'rent charge' holder (currently the builder) can appoint a management company to manage the estate including parking regulations but the precise rules are not in the covenants. The estate has marked bays and some folk have driveways but nowhere near enough space hence people park on road too, which led to the letter in 2019 as many complained. This is because people's visitors had literally nowhere to park if they followed CPM's signage - even on Xmas Day lol. I was parked opposite my own driveway, not in a marked bay but not 'blocking' the driveway - i can easily in get in and out with my large SUV even with my other car parked opposite and HGV delivery vehicles and refuse trucks regularly go past unimpeded - so i believed i was parked in accordance with the estate mgt co. letter and I have been leaving it there 24x7 for more than 1 year. I will write to the estate management co. as advised but perhaps with a little more diplomatic language In respect of appealing to CPM and IAS, i see your comments and i realize the possibility of being successful is tiny. However, wouldn't a court later look favorably if i can show that i have tried all avenues to resolve the matter and that not responding is looked at unfavorably? And why is it a disadvantage especially if i dont give away all of my defence points? I also read your comments on POFA2012 in respect of times on the PCN and early issuance of NTK and that windscreen PCN is required (unless ANPR). I will look further at the legislation to see if i can find the supporting language. Thanks again and i will add more as things develop. One general question - if the keeper names a driver in response to the NTK and the named 'driver' then denies back to the parking company that he/she is the driver, then the parking company cannot prove he/she is actually the driver so what would happen next? I want to edit a post above as i was not the actual driver on this occasion, so when i say that 'i' was parked it means the car registered to me was parked, but not by me. But i dont see an edit button?
  2. dx100uk. Thanks. I am just trying to find in POFA2012 where it says that a warden must issue a windscreen ticket.
  3. dx100uk - many thanks... -Photos attached pretty much the same quality as they are on the PCN. One photo has the signage but its too poor quality in the PCN to read. -No windscreen ticket. Warden simply goes around with his/her mobile phone camera. -Location street name on the PCN is incorrect (its redacted but its not the road the car was parked in) -PCN is dated 1 day after capture and received by me 3 days after capture. Is this what you refer to as NTK? -Can you pls advise what part of the legislation says they have to have a windscreen PCN or ANPR. Seems quite common that these companies do it by stealth. - I uploaded signage too in case its useful Pics.pdf Signage.pdf @lookinforinfo - the 'incident time' is mentioned twice - both the same time - once in the box in the top right and once in the text. Yes i redacted it as the date/time/area combined collectively identify the PCN. Not sure why the exact time matters? - suffice to say the warden got up before breakfast. The photos do have date/times in the top left - tbh they are too small, dark, blurry in the PCN to see.
  4. dx100uk - i called the management co but they just say they cant get involved, UKCPM make the decisions about what is a parking violation and i have to deal with them
  5. For PCN's received through the post [ANPR camera capture] (must be received within 14 days from the Incident) Thanks for your responses so far. Here's requested info and attached PCN and Estate Mgt Co letter redacted... 1 Date of the infringement 10 May 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 11 May 3 Date received 13 May 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [Y/N?] Yes 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Yes (very dark/almost unreadable on the PCN) 6 Have you appealed? [Y/N?] post up your appeal] Not yet Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up N/A 7 Who is the parking company? UKCPM 8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] Private estate road in Gravesend, Kent (road named on PCN is incorrect as was actually in a nearby road) For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under.

  6. Received a PCN from UKCPM - nothing on the window; just sent in the post to me as keeper. In 2019 the management company of the estate roads sent residents a letter relaxing parking conditions and saying UKCPM had been instructed to focus on ticketing inconsiderate parking e.g. blocking drives, pavements, junctions etc. but otherwise ok to park on the roadway. This letter referred to residents complaining about excessive/unreasonable ticketing from UKCPM. Letter goes onto say tickets are at UKCPM's discretion. UKCPM's pre-existing signage remained in place after the letter, saying no parking on roadways at all, at any time. Following the letter, the car was regularly parked for more than year in the roadway until it suddenly got a ticket. In addition, the PCN has an incorrect location, naming a nearby road as opposed to the actual road that the car was parked. Please can someone advise if parking rules/guidelines in the estate management company's letter take precedence over UKCPM's signage and given the PCN was issued for simply parking on the roadway? - not blocking anything or violating the rules in the estate mgt co. letter. Also, if the incorrect location in the PCN is relevant to an appeal/defence? I prefer to appeal now (UKCPM/IAS) as I dont want to wait many months for small claims case as i want to continue parking in the roadway and want to avoid the potential for hundreds of PCNs going to court, which could be risky. Happy to upload the letter and PCN redacted if useful.
