  1. Thanks for the replies. It follow a previous letter where they said they would start a Claim if not paid by 23rd Jan (today!). So I'm guessing this is what they'll do?
  2. Here we go. convert-jpg-to-pdf.net_2019-01-23_14-30-19.pdf
  3. I got this response back. Not feeling very hopeful. What's my options?
  4. I've just written to Costa saying I would name them as co defendant. I'll keep you updated on this. I've also written this and will be sending it to BW LEGAL. Any changes I should consider before sending? "CC.: Brittania Parking CC.: Costa Ltd It is denied that any monies are due to your client as there is no keeper liability in this matter and no contract was offered at the time. I was not at the location on the day in question and have not received any initial correspondence let alone a notice that could create a keeper liability under the PoFA. Furthermore, it is well known that there are massive problems with the signage at the site as these have been widely publicized. It is not possible to read the small font of the signage Additionally, it appears that no planning permission was issued for any of the aforementioned signage, ANPR systems or even a limited parking duration for the Costa. What's more, the claimed £160 legal fees is considered extravagant considering the alleged duration of the parking was exceeded by only 12 minutes and 37 seconds, according to your own ANPR systems. It is also well known that Brittania and BW Legal are aware of this so this claim is not a genuine attempt at recovering monies allegedly owed to you but merely a poor attempt to coerce me into paying money not owed and that this continues as an abuse of the Civil Procedure system as a method of unregulated debt collection activity. Any such action will be resisted and a counterclaim for breach of the DPA may be issued for failing to adhere to the KADOE contract terms. Please ensure all future correspondence is directed to the above address Kind regards," Thanks!
  5. I have the timestamps from their camera - attached below. I've scanned all the documents. They're in the PDF attached. I'm new to this and welcome your recommendations. Thanks so much. letters .pdf
  6. Hey Dave. Cheers although I did (stupidly!) admit to overstaying by 10 minutes. I did get on Costa on a possible levels and they sadly aren't moving. Is there a difference between the two types of letter?
  7. Hey guys. Just got this letter of claim through. What to do next? Thanks!
  8. Thank you - I'll wait and keep you updated of any further communication.
  9. Thank you so much for your replies! It's good to know I have some recourse. Since I last posted, they have sent me various letters every month. Today, they say they have transferred my file to this legal firm and wanting payment within 16 days. I'd love to heat what's your opinion on this, and what are my options? Thanks!
  10. Ok. I've spend some time reading the planning application for the Costa and related facilities. I can't see any mention of parking cameras or any sort of enforcement. Has anyone looked at this? On the Wiltshire council planning portal...
  11. I knew about the 10 minutes grace period. I wasn't aware of the 15 mins one. I'm searching on the planning website it's ridiculous I can't find the planning perm. I'll contact the council.
  12. Hi, I've received a DRP letter yesterday. This was for a visit at a Costa from two months ago so I was very surprised, and annoyed. I contacted Brittania directly (see my correspondence below) before I had found this forum. I can't understand how DRP can successfuly send me a letter while Brittania can't. Is there grounds there for ignoring them? They have sent me timestamped photos of my car with an overstay of 13 minutes. I've read many similar threads with the general advice being to ignore the debt collection and parking agencies. Given that I have contacted them via email, have I compromised my situation? I have not yet formally appealed - I think. Please find more relevant info below. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this. Many thanks 1 Date of the infringement 01/06/2018 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] I have never received an NTK - only a DRP letter 3 Date received As above 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [y/n?] As above 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Brittania have sent me timestamped photos. I exceeded the allowed parking time by 13 minutes. 6 Have you appealed? {y/n?] post up your appeal] Y To my great surprise I've received a Debt Recovery Plus ltd letter saying you have sent me a letter for a parking charge which was not answered which is completely untrue. I have never received a letter from yourselves and therefore wasn't able to contact you and appeal it. I was meeting clients at the Costa immediately next to where I had parked my car. I was with the clients for no more than 90 minutes. Is this worth noting we all were paying customers at the Costa. I find it completely unacceptable to have to pay the £160 fees for staying at a cafe for a mere 90 minutes. I was conducting my business and using the parking facilities reasonably. As such I hope this parking charge will get cancelled without me having to escalate this matter further with the owners of the Costa I frequently visit. Kind regards, Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up Y Thank you for your email.
