  1. That is my whole point - I don't want to receive a proper legal Letter Before Action of any kind, regardless of whether 100 or 0 demand letters come before that... There's no real solution here.
  2. Hi, I started on that thread and than moved it to a new thread. The information on that thread is just as inconclusive as the information given on mine. Even if the notice to keeper isn't compliant with POFA, there isn't anywhere that says they won't hound you to death with demand letters and threats of court. Whilst all of this is encouraging, it's almost impossible to see how it can be challenged.
  3. The problem is, I'm just a person. A person who lives 250 miles from where a parking contravention supposedly took place, which would cost me more than the charge again just to go down there and take photos as evidence. I'm just an average person who has no history of this sort of infraction and doesn't really want one hanging over their head either, much like most of the people who will be reading this and will generally be decent people. I have no knowledge of the industry or the people who influence it and it's perfectly fine to offer help but none of this is objective and I could just be leading myself into having something that is going to hang over me longer and create further cost in the long run. It's also fine to use acronyms when explaining something to save time, but it then takes me (or any average person looking at this with a plead for help) ten times the amount saved just to work out what everyone is saying. Time that then evaporates and in less than 24 hours I am staring down the barrel of a PCN that is double the cost it is now. I don't know what a Notice To Keeper should or shouldn't say, what a keeper liability needs to say, what vital phrases should be included, and I am relying solely on advice given here to completely ignore every sign that I should settle it and give myself the peace of mind that I'm not going to receive increased demands or worse, a court letter. I would much rather not roll-over, and reject a biased system, but what evidence do I have to go on!? Even if the PCN I have been issue with has the wrong wording, what is there that I can do with that??
  4. So the big question is, what do I do now. There's a lot of favour for not just settling the PCN, but what else can I do successfully?
  5. So what we're saying here is that the people giving oversight are in bed with the people they're giving oversight to and rely on their membership to survive, so will not act independently!? Conclusion being that there is no point in doing anything other than settling the Parking Charge?
  6. Not familiar with the term NTK but I assume you're referring to the terms on the back so I have posted up the letter, both sides.. 181011 Premier Park Ltd.pdf
  7. Dear all, Exeter Road Car Park, Braunton, EX33 2JJ - Parking Charge Notice I have also been subject to this rather off-putting Parking Charge Notice in the same place; Following the thread above I have completed the questions from the link below: 1.

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. Two photos of car. Two of numberplate [both dark]. 6. Have you appealed? [y/n?] post up your appeal]: - Not yet, but I have drafted it and posted below. Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up: - N/A - not yet. 7. Who is the parking company?: - Premier Park Ltd 8. Where exactly [carpark name and town]: - Exeter Road Car Park, Braunton, EX33 2JJ Draft online Parking Charge Notice Appeal wording: "Dear Sir/Madam, Please be advised that in normal circumstances I am law and rule abiding, in any case.
At the time in question this was no different, however, after recalling this journey to an area that I am not familiar with and which receives a significant amount of tourism traffic, I would state that the terms and conditions of the car park are not sufficient for the average visitor to use and create a valid contract. Specifically I am appealing against the availability of, and clearness of, the signage and how well lit the car park is to make this reasonably visible to any user in order to create an acceptable contract. At the time of the evening stated, and as can be evidenced from your own photographic evidence stated, it was almost pitch black dark if not for the light omitted from a vehicle itself. So much so that the vehicle make, model, colour or driver cannot be determined. If I recall correctly, at the given time of the evening, a bus also pulled into the bus lane outside the car park on Exeter Road, meaning that anyone would have to tightly pull in front of it to gain access to the car park, missing blocked entry signage and parking terms signage. The darkness of the evidence provided also does not display and make clear were my car was photographed and if it even entered the car park or remained stationary/unattended there for any period of time at all. 
Please can I appeal to good faith that if the displays were clear and visible I would have seen no option but to comply with the terms and conditions, but in this case, for multiple reasons, the terms were not clear enough for me to be made aware to do so at the time. There is also no evidence provided to the contrary that the car park is clearly displayed, including its terms, or sufficiently lit to substantiate the claim that any contravention was intentionally made at the time. If you do not agree that this penalty has been unfairly applied and reject my appeal, I will be left with no option but to further this appeal with IAS. I look forward to hearing from you Regards," --------------- Any help you could give here would be greatly appreciated?? and I hope that this helps others Thank you
