  1. No permitted parking to control? There is no parking or if you park £100 charge, if motorist were aware of this, which most are not because the signs are not clear, especially after dark. And i was mentioned about a 10 minute grace period and most shoppers do not stay more than 10 minutes and NPM take their photos as soon as the driver is out of sight (entered the store)! Is it worth wasting more time making a complaint to the IPC about all the codes of conduct NPM have broken?
  2. The boundry of the road was highlighted by myself in green to show which road is owned by the developer and is unadopted. the developer can take action for trespass and NPM the car parking, providing they adhere to the IPC code of conduct, which they are not doing so in more ways than one!!!!
  3. Just had the following reply from the Highways, Northampton: The highway status of a road can be checked by using our interactive mapping service (link below); http://www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/en/pages/mapping.aspx To turn on the relevant layer you will need to open the following check boxes; ADD FEATURE/ PLACE > TRANSPORT AND STREETS > HIGHWAY REGISTER The mapping shows that the road is still unadopted. The developer owns the land and it likely them that have instructed a company to manage the parking. I trust this explains the
  4. The GDPR was adopted on 14 April 2016, and became enforceable beginning 25 May 2018. My alleged offence was before that. I have all the planning documents for the site. I'll see if any mention about ownership of the land. No reply yet from the Highways.
  5. The Landowner/Developer has confirmed the NPM parking control area includes the unadopted road where I was parked. Just waiting to hear from highways to find out who owns this land (of the unadopted road).
  6. Here is the plan & email from the Highways. I have put your questions to them. I think they mean their green is their control! Wellingborough Road, Northampton8.pdf
  7. There is no contract between the Council and NPM to control parking. There is a contract between the site owner and developer and NPM to control the parking. I finally had this confirmed by them. NPM failed to prove this even to the IAS. They said they uploaded the Authority letter, but did not.
  8. @honeybee I certainly am, but from the IPC code of conduct we can be rest assured by this: Independent Appeals Service (IAS). The Independent Appeals Service is a service administered by the IPC which allows a person aggrieved by the issue of a Parking Charge Notice to have the matter adjudicated upon by an independent adjudicator. Whilst the IAS is administered by the IPC, the appeals process is provided at ‘arm’s length’. The IPC have no involvement or influence in appeals and are not able to become involved in issues relating to individual parking charges. The Independent Appea
  9. Yes I would say the lines were painted by the council and this was another part of my despute that the road looks like a normal one when you enter it. Also the guy who told NPM to take him to court and heard nothing from them for 5 months (last time I saw him), stated this would be part of his defence in court. The PCN states unadopted road and the council confirmed this to me. The article on unadopted roads states: The public usually has the right to freely pass along any unadopted road, which differs from private roads, where only the owner and those with permission can
  10. This defendant isn't going to pay unless I am told to do so by a Judge so they are wasting their time and money, as I have already told them and the debt recovery company. And when I win my case my Father, who has plenty of time on his hands, will certainly be spreading the word big time! Just seen the new red fencing and current sign location of this site can be seen on google, so you can all bee how inadequate they are by virtually entering and going around the un-adopted road. https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@52.2413478,-0.8824026,3a,75y,351.58h,89.82t/data=!3m6!1e1!
  11. If the new parking bill isnt going to stop this then seems it is going to be a complete and utter waste of time and our money! I thought it seemed to be informative too, but I didn't reach out directly to seek their help. If they are making a lot of easy money because of peoples ignorance why can't they be happy with that. But no they have to be greedy and chase every penny they can and in the process cause people misery and stress. The thing is, if they get exposed in the media, especially if they loose a court case, they will be shooting the
  12. I meant the website Parking Cowboys, not the parking management companies! Sorry for not being clearer. Thanks for the advice. Just the part that is between Tescos and the old hospital. Just been up to the site. The signs are still the same as far as I can see although at 18.30 it was already dark and hard to see them. Despite this I saw NPM parking attendants were still operating. There were two guys standing against the derelict building wall and as soon as each driver parked alongside it, left their vehicle and walked over to Tesco, out came their camera phones
  13. Had no Letter of Claim or from the County Court. Last letters and emails have come from the debt collector. Yes some advise from MSE is good, but what I took was poor. Out of interest what is your opinion of the Parking Cowboys? Obviously people on here are just names and I have no idea what qualifications or experience each of you have.
  14. I know now and as I previously stated on this thread I should not have gone through the NPM/IAS chocolate teapot/corrupt appeal process and just responded by disputing the PCN and telling them to take me to court. However I did so because I was wrongly advised to by CAB and Martin Lewis's MSE website, plus I was hoping to avoid wasting valuable County Court time. I am where I am now and have to deal with it. In a way I hope this goes to court and I win my case, because this will make great front page headline in the Chronicle & Echo and then watch the flood of drivers who wi
  15. The signs say Private Land. No Parking at any time. The only problem is drivers don't see the signs and those that do can be excused for believing they refer to the building site and not the road! So where do I go from here? There is probably no point in telling them anything now as I am sure they are reading thus thread and know exactly what trump card I should use. In the meantime can I expect the games of the debt collecter to continue and do I just ignore any further correspondance, including from their Solicitor? This I was planning to do and only react to a l
  16. That is very interesting Shamrocker. Thanks. So they can try to charge me for trespassing, but not for parking in a no parking site, even if the road is part of the site referred to on signs? I know parking on DYLs on Private land is not an enforceable offence, but at least Tesco custoners would have more awareness that parking in this road is not allowed than they currently have from the existing signs.
  17. It doesnt matter how long I was there. I don't know why this thread included overstay in the title. I did not overstay a period that I had paid for or a period you are allowed to stay free. The road is Private and there is No Parking, although I and dozens of drivers every day are unaware because of the poor signage (e.g. no sign as you enter the road. I have a receipt from Tescos that is within 10 minutes from the time stamp, but I have no idea how quickly the photo was taken. I would see immediately as I only bought a few items from the store, hence why I said 10 minutes.
  18. Sorry for the delay. I hope you now have all you need to offer useful advice that will help if this goes to court or I get nasty letters from the Debt Collector or their Solicitor. I suppose this is all good preparation for writing to my local MP and the media if I have to and I was thinking of contacting Sir Parking Bill himself, even though I am not in his constituency.

  19. There is no new sign as far as I know. There is just new fencing put up, same signs. I will visit the site and confirm this and report back. The one I posted here is the one uploaded to the IAS as evidence. Someone mentioned on here about a 10 minute grace period. I don't see that is relevant for a NO PARKING area. Yes there may be grace time on a parking time paid for to allow for difference in peoples time devices, which may be 10 minutes, although I read on I think this forum NPM gives 5 minutes. Sorry you think getting informat
  20. Just added a photo of the new red fencing that covers up the end of the building where there used be a sign. There is a new sign, but this is not facing drivers as they enter the un-adopted road. 4 .pdf
  21. I did answer most of them. Just need to sort out the documents to not have any personal details in one PDF To recap 1 Date of the infringement January this year 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] It was received after 3 days of the alleged offence 3 Date received Received 5 days after the alleged offence 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [y/n?] Yes it does 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Yes 3 photographs taken
