  1. Second letter from Zenith offering to settle out of court....an 'extra time to pay' and 'the chance to pay by instalments'....how generous of them! I have until 22 May before they 'discuss starting legal action'. Zenith 08May19_Redacted.pdf
  2. Not a bad guess! This time it is Zenith Collections - with a deadline of 07 May to pay before they 'consider taking legal action'. Zenith 23Apr19_Redacted.pdf
  3. Latest letter from DRP just arrived. They are "kindly" offering me a discount if I pay up now before their client 'considers taking legal action'... I have until 18/4/19 to consider, so await the next letter with interest! DRP 04Apr19_Redacted.pdf
  4. Next letter received. Another one from DRP (Debt Recovery Plus Ltd) threatening 'intended court action' and again referring to a Supreme Court ruling in November 2015. Next deadline is 03/04/2019. WIll wait and see what comes next! DRP 20Mar19_Redacted.pdf
  5. I have just received a letter from Debt Recovery Plus Ltd dated 28/2/19. They have upped the parking charge to £160 and say that I am liable for it. As no NTK was issued and I have not responded to say who was driving can they do that? They also quote a Supreme Court case that upheld private parking charges. www.supremecourt.uk/cases/uksc-2015-0116.html - I have had a look but it is very long and technical and I cannot spot any salient points that would indicate whether this was similar. Copy of the letter here: DRP - 280219 redact.pdf They say I have until 14/3/19 to pay or they will 'recommend to our client that they take court action against you'. Any advice appreciated. Thanks.
  6. I have now received a 'Reminder Letter' and the cost has gone up to £130 (see attached). The previous letter of 28/1/19 stated payment of £100 due within 14 days which would have been by 11/2/19. This reminder has been issued on 12/2/19 and they are giving me another 14 days which takes it to 26/2/19. "Failure to pay this charge may result in enforcement action which could include County Court proceedings and which may incur additional costs'. They also mention in Appeals, that a Notice to Keeper was sent (it wasn't) and my right of appeal has ended. I assume it is best just to sit tight and see what happens next? No point in appealing or any other form of challenge? Thanks Rob. UKCPS Reminder 12Feb2019_Redacted.pdf
  7. I was hoping to load photos inline so I could comment on each but it is not letting me so have had to upload as a PDF. I will reference my comments by page number. Page 1 - This is the only camera I can see, mounted on a post on the nearside as you enter the car park (note comments on page 6 about previous camera/sign arrangement). Page 2 - As you enter there is only one small sign on the offside of the main access road. Whilst it does have a blue "P" it doesn't really draw your attention to the fact that this is a time restricted/camera monitored car park Page 3 - When you turn left into the car park, there are 3 signs on consecutive lamp columns. The fact that you never walk in front of them and cannot read them from your car may be a factor. Page 4 - The aisle between the end of parking rows and the shops has 2 signs along it so it is entirely possible to walk from a parking space to the shops without passing a sign. Page 5 - The other end only has one sign between the bays and the shops. Page 6 - Going back in time on Google, they used to have different cameras and a nice sign highlighting that this was a time restricted car park, prominently pointing out that they had collected your number plate and telling you when you had to leave by. Presumably this either led to too many motorists complying and therefore a lack of income, or GDPR said that displaying the number plate was invading privacy(?!!)

  8. Thanks for the reply. It is reassuring to hear how dodgy they all are. The signs on site are pretty small and you cannot read them from your car. There are plenty dotted around the site and luckily Google has Streetviewed the whole car park! I went back and took a photo of one of the signs. They all seem to be the same, but I didn't get a picture of the cameras as I had not seen your post unfortunately. I don't think I can use hyperlinks yet so will put together another post with all the positions of signs and cameras. Thank you.
  9. I don't know as the Notice only has the exit time. Presumably the NTK would have given the entry time and photos but of course I haven't had that.
  10. Thanks for that. I guess it is possible the Royal Mail failed to deliver as it would have been in the Christmas buildup but I am certain we never received anything. You would think that they would send the NTK recorded delivery if they were serious about things.
  11. Hi this is myfirst post This is a verysimilar situation to another on this site from mechsman on 4/10/17 so I assume a lot ofthe advice there will apply to me. I have not received a Notice to Keeper and this notification letter(attached) is the first I have heard of it. Details in redas per other posts: For PNC's received through the post [ANPR camera capture] please answerthe following questions. 1 Date of theinfringement >Allegedly22 December 2018 2 Date on theNTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] > No NTK received; this is thenotification letter and dated 28 January 2019 3 Date received >29January 2019 4 Does the NTKmention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [y/n?] >Yes 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? >None provided or mentioned, butI'm assuming they must have entry/exit pictures from ANPR? 6 Have youappealed? {y/n?] post up you appeal] >No Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up 7 Who is theparking company? >UKCPS 8. Where exactly[carpark name and town] Bristol Abbeywood For eitheroption, does it say which appeals body they operate under. > It says there is no chance toappeal as it is beyond the 21 day period. I never received the NTK they claimwas sent. It mentions the IPC under complaints section. There are twoofficial bodies, the BPA and the IAS. If you are unsure, >please check HERE If you havereceived any other correspondence, please mention it here: None I am minded towrite and complain that I have not had the original NTK so: hadno chance to pay at a reduced amount. Donot know the time of entry so unsure if/how long the time period was exceeded Wasnot the driver (my wife was) They are sayingpayment is due 14 days of this notice, so 11 February which doesn't give memuch time to talk to them (no email address so only phone or letter). The previousexample with this company advice was do not respond and they will give up. Thisseems to have been the case and he had stopped getting letters 7 months lateralthough no further updates since to know whether this is still the case. I would appreciate advice on what to do please. Many thanks. Apologises for the font/spacing. I tried posting a couple of times and it got rejected so I copied a post in from Word rather than type all again and the formatting has gone astray. UKCPS 28Jan2019 redacted_Redacted.pdf
