  1. They should have snapped your hand off offering to pay. At the end of the day your choice, but I didnt know this was an un-adopted, private road because the signage is poor and has been for 4.5 years. I only parked here as the Tesco car park was full. So if you parked at 6.31pm it was already dark, the signs are not illuminated and in darkness and NPM would have taken their photos using a floodlight & flash. I have photographic evidence of this taken at the end of October, same time. My parents were there that night/time so if you need a witne
  2. Hi, I have just replied a second time to NPM's Letter Before Claim. I have stated the debt is denied as the PCN was disputed. I have given the reasons why and requested from them several documents and information. I await their reply and to be advised if they still intend to take me to court. They recently lost a court case for a claim for an unpaid PCN in this same road. When was your PCN issued because NPM were suspended from operating here in the middle of November and as far as I know they are still not operating here. What time of d
  3. Sorry for the delay in posting this update. Your website was down whilst being re-designed. The website is looking good,
  4. You would have thought they would have crawled away by now and if they had it would have been less damaging to them to have done so. My Father went through all their lies in detail for our MP and she forwarded this to the NPM MD about a month ago and so far no rely. However, they sent the LBC 10 days after, so that was a sort of response! Now waiting for a response to my rejection of their LBC. Will keep you updated.
  5. They have probably issued hundreds of tickets over the last 4.5 years since Tesco Express opened in this road and you are right they haven't changed their behavior or signs in that time despite many complaints, but I think the tide is about to turn and this case being dismissed is just another part of making this happen. It is still hoped by Tesco's staff that they have permanently lost the contract in this road, but their Landlord/Landowner is being evasive in confirming this. I am not sure how many cases have been taken to court for this location. This may have been the first one and a
  6. i think they will know I am aware of the case as NPM probably have spies on this forum and also the one that helped the girl to win her case. My Father has already made the landowner and Tesco aware that NPM lost the case to reinforce the complaint they received.
  7. Thanks. Had some good news today. The woman who was taken to court by NPM for not paying the PCN for her car being parked in this same location as I was won her case today. This was her second appearance in court. The first time the Judge adjourned because NPM were not properly prepared, but the Defendant was. Today the case resumed and the Judge dismissed it! Oh happy days!!!! This is a big boost to my confidence. Will they still bother to carry out their threat to take me to court especially when they have fallen at one of the same first hurdles as this case?
  8. Yes I agree with as to why they told lies to my MP, but she did not accept the these and has written to the MD again to challenge them. It is unlikely they will respond. I am not looking for reasons to fail and do not intend to do so. I most definitely believe that I am right, otherwise like many I would have already thrown in the towel. As Margaret Thatcher once said "The lady's not for turning" I worked out a few typos in your message but one I was unable to do so which is the word "orer" in the the sentence "I will be seeking full costs recovery orer under.....
  9. Thanks for your response. Was worried that there were no views yesterday. Obviously everyone was busy!! I have read that whilst the road is unadopted and is private it is the Landowners responsibility to maintain it. NPM have also stated in their response to my MP's complaint letter: "St Edmunds is an un-adopted road. An un-adopted road is a private road. It is a road that is privately owned property and is limited to the use of the owners who share the use and maintain the road without help from a government agency. Even though the road is un-adopted most reg
  10. Hi everyone. I have not been on here for sometime as I was waiting for the LBC, which has finally arrived. I will upload it later with personal details covered. Whilst waiting for the LBC my Father contacted Tesco Head Office about the issue of shoppers receiving PCN's in this road because the signage is poor (e.g. none at the entrance of the road, these refer to Land/Site, not Road & most do not face the driver) and consequently they park unaware that the road is Private/Un-adopted with no parking allowed. Also NPM have been breaking IPC Codes of Conduct, like alluring
  11. The document is a pdf from the Council website. The quality is poor. As they say you cannot polish the s word. Tesco property manager phoned me this afternoon. I am sending him all the complaint details and he is going to speak to the Landlord. If he gets a response it will be that the Parking Management Company is a member of the IPC and signs at the site approved by the IPC and Trading Standards. I have told him why to dismiss these statements. He confirmed who I know to be the Landlord and owner of the land.
  12. I didnt think it was a done deal that the road will be adopted at all. I would think like you that all of the part causing issues will be adopted. Yes the tarmac and normal line marking are part of the problem. It looks like a finished adopted road and as there are no signs stating otherwise obviously shopper are none the wiser until that PCN drops through the letter box!
  13. We may have had some temporary success. The NPM Cowboys, their floodlighting and flash cameras were not present last night when it was dark they maybe lying low at the moment unless they were all at a staff Bonfire Party that Mt Gearly was holding! I know who I would have liked to have seen as the guy on top of the bonfire Sorry if that last sentence is breaking group rules. i have continued to push Tesco's into taking action. They have tried to fob me off and pull the wool over my eyes, but they apologised in the end for doing so and have stated thi
  14. I now have the correct planning application number and confirmed that the Tesco's landlord is the the same company, who own the whole site. Also seen the deeds to the land. Read the attached with interest. Have they broken their agreement for the planning consent by not painting double yellow lines before Tesco's etc moved in or because the road is un-adopted is that a get out for them? planning.pdf
  15. I started by looking at planning applications and luckily before I purchased a land registry document I discovered the planning department were looking at the wrong address!!!!! Phoned them back and as this is complicated I have had to submit my request by email.
  16. Not sure I am understanding the significant of the red and blue borders on this site plan from the planning documents. Anyone else understand what they are showing us? I can make assumptions. site plan from the planning documents.pdf
  17. Yes I know complaining to the IPC is a waste of time. I foolishly used their corrupt IAS appeal process and despite flaws with the evidence given by NPM, which I highlighted to the Adjudicator, my appeal was rejected and the IPC would not accept my complaint of how this was handled because it would affect the independance of the Adjudicator (LOL). The purpose of the petition and contacting the press is to highlight what a rogue company NPM are and the more people who are aware that they are not following even the IPC Code of Conduct the better, then more like myself will refuse to pay.
  18. Response from Tesco: I am very sorry that you and other customers have received parking charges for parking on the unadopted road entrance by St Edmunds Hospital. I can only imagine the inconvenience and upset caused by this. I have looked into this and unfortunately we do not have any jurisdiction over the car park or the company that hands out these parking charges as this is separately owned, we do not own the car park here. The only thing I can suggest is that you contact the company directly but I can see that you have already done this. I am very sorry but there is not much that I
  19. My friend knew that from comment on here about trespassing, but when you are within inches of a big black guy do you continue to argue? At least he didn't take my friends camera away! He caught my friend when he was looking through the photos on thr corner of the street. He told my friend he was weird as he had been hanging around for 42 minutes. At first the NPM guy suspected my friend was there monitoring them so they drove round without stopping a few times. Hence why he was there so long!
  20. My friend did get right in their face, but dearn't take a photo of the guy as he was getting aggresive saying it was private land and he would expel him off the site, even when he moved to the front of the Tesco store. He said the landowner was the Landlord of Tesco, so this was still private land! My friend did get photos and they have been included in a petition that has been started. I posted a link to it on this group but it was removed. Only one photo was used. Not very clear as it was dark, but you see enough. The local paper have a full
  21. Tonight someone went on site to get photographic evidence of NPM taking photos of cars when it is dark and the signs on the building that drivers park alongside are in darkness. They hand hold a powerful floodlight in front and behind the cars and take their photos with flash. The IPC code of conduct states: "If parking enforcement takes place outside of daylight hours you should ensure that signs are illuminated or there is sufficient other lighting. You will need to ensure all signs are readable during the hours of enforcement as they form the legal basis of any charge. Be clearly
  22. NPM were supposed to have uploaded the "Landowner Authority" to the IAS for the appeal, They stated they had done so, but had not done so. I asked to see a copy of this even post the appeal being rejected and this was not supplied. The Landowner in an email confirmed NPM had authority but this was just an email not a signed document. Yes the IPC may be Gladstones, but they have a created a Code of Conduct and if a complaint is made against one of their members they should investigate this as per their set out process and if the operator is found guilty they should have penalt
