  1. Hello all,

    I borrowed a family member's car to attend a flat viewing.


    The viewing was at 17:00 on Thurs 17th June 2021(I have email to confirm this)


    I was a little early as was the estate agent. 

    I initially couldn't have been longer than 20-25 minutes before returning to the car and waiting, as the estate agent had to return to the office to obtain the correct key.

    I waited in the car for a approximately 15 mins (after after the photos were taken) and then had the full viewing.


    The land is in a private, gated development.

    I received the attached PCN (Parking Charge Notice) today on Wed 23rd June 2021.

    It's hard to work out, but the 2 photos were taken at 16:59:08 and 16:59:40. I believe the photo was taken by someone on foot/Moped - Please help!


    1 Date of the infringement Thursday 17th June 2021 [17:23]

    2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 19th June 2021


    3 Date received Wednesday 23rd June 2021


    4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? Yes

    5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Yes

    6 Have you appealed?  No

    Have you had a response? not applicable

    7 Who is the parking company? UKCPM


    8. Where exactly Heritage Walk, Brentford, London, TW8 0RN


    For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. ISA

  2. Claim Dismissed


    but, the courts messed up the court time.


    However, UKCPM notified the court that they weren't going to turn up.

    The judge was not the original person assigned, so he only had a small amount of time to review the case.


    I sat with him and briefly explained my summary of events.

    We sat in silence and after a while he said he was going to dismiss the case considering the distance required to get back to the car (i suppose this would relate to a sufficient grace period).


    I'm a little upset that he didn't seem to consider the other points (such as no locus standi, improper conduct) and he wouldn't allow my summary of costs to be reimbursed as "this is a small claims court" he mentioned. 


    I'm a bit underwhelmed, but I suppose I won.


    Thank you to you all.

  4. i see, thanks


    I can actually claim up to £95 for loss of earnings!

  5. Ok...i think i'm there.


    I've read other peoples' successes and what happened on their hearing date.


    I've printed out a copy of the IPC and BPA code of practices (organised in a separate folder, highlighted and with referral tags for easy location of text).


    I've also prepared a summary of costs including (i'll take this with me):

    • Litigation in person costs (8hours)
    • Printing costs
    • Travel costs

    This totals £170.45


    Hopefully i have everything covered?

    I'll practice what i'll explain to the judge as my summary of events.

  6. All - WS posted last week (as well as email to the court).

    Let's see what happens - the court date was supposed to be Wed 6th May, but have not heard anything.


    Also, I posted letters to all companies on my credit file for the last 7 years to inform them of my change of address (as this was discussed previously). Driving license and V5C already updated.


  7. ok @brassnecked.


    The WS is due today.


    I've prepared 3 copies for the

    • Court,
    • Gladstones
    • and myself.


    However, the court is suspended for staff and the public (obviously due to COVID-19) - I was planning on leaving it at the court, but that's not possible.


    I suppose I should just carry on as usual. I'll have to post them at lunch as i'm working from home and it's the only chance i'll get.

  8. ok all - 


    I've completed my final WS (witness statement) - Please see attached.


    It's due at the court tomorrow (wed 22nd April), but I will post in the morning.

    In another discussion, I understand that should be ok.


    Please note:

    I did not add the reference for the illegal contract being a criminal offence, as I could not find the correct reference.

    I'm quite happy with the the document as it stands.
