  1. Ok, thanks for confirming. I'll update when they get in touch again.
  2. Hi all. Had a reply from ParkingEye today, saying they still think I have to pay, giving me 14 days to do so, and including an FAQ sheet. I've attached it as a PDF. Do I just ignore this until the next step, or do I need to reply again? jpg2pdf (3).pdf
  3. Thank you to you both, I appreciate the help. Letter being sent today (the shortened format in FTMDave's post above), I'll let you know what reply I get.
  4. Thank you. Letters are from PE, not a solicitor. They both ask for £100. They also say a court case will incur further costs of £50 for solicitors fees and £25 for court fees.
  5. Thanks for the replies. The NTK did arrive within the time limit. I can't remember the date now, but I did check it at the time following earlier advice in this thread. I haven't been able to get back to KFC, but I did email the retail park management company, with no reply as yet. I have drafted a snotty reply. I worry that it might need changing because 1) it's not snotty enough and 2) I give too many details about my defence. What do you think?
  6. Hi all. An update. After chasing with a couple more letters, I have today received a 'Letter Before County Court Claim' (well, two of them, one for each of the days I parked there). They say 'the requirements of schedule 4 of POFA' have been met. It says I have 30 days from 24th December (date of letter) to reply if I wish to. They also quote that beavis case you guys mention. There is a form for me to complete, asking if I dispute or accept the debt and asking for a financial statement, which I am guessing they have no right to. Is this the letter I need to reply to, or am I still in the waiting phase? Thanks again for your help, I'd have probably caved and paid both charges by now without it.
  7. Thank you. So the advice is ignore them unless I get a court case? Happy to do that
  8. Pictures attached. Make it clear its 1 hour free, but then says not outside of those times. pix.pdf
  9. Yes that was a typo. Received 09/11/20. OK. Will contact the local KFC manager if I can, and also try to find planning permission details. Will let you know what I find. Thanks for all the help
  10. OK thanks, I will try and get signage tomorrow. Sneaky as Oh flip to have a small part of a wider retail park under private parking restrictions. Is it worth contacting the KFC directly to try and have them cancel it, or does that count as acknowledging the charge and make parking Eye more likely to chase me?
  11. I assumed my choices were to appeal or pay, and I definitely don't intend to pay. If I don't follow the appeals process, will it not go against me if it goes to court? It's not local, but near a site I've been working at. Might be able to get a photo tomorrow of the signage.
  12. Thanks for the response. Details below. 1)Date of the infringement 02/11/20 (Also expecting one for 03/11/20 but not yet received) 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 05/11/20 [scan up BOTHSIDES as ONE PDF- follow the upload guide] Uploaded PDF. 3 Date received 09/12/20 4 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 6 Have you appealed? [Y/N?] post up your appeal] No, but I want to. Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up N/A 7 Who is the parking company? Parking Eye Car Park Solutions 8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] KFC, Ellesmere Centre, Walkden For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. Independent Appeals Service (POPLA) Thank you for your help.

  13. Hi. I wanted to ask for advice before I act, so I do this right. Today received a parking charge from Parking Eye for parking for 33 minutes on KFC car park from 8.36am, when the allowed time is zero. Ellesmere Centre has free parking for 2 hours, but I hadn't noticed that the KFC parking is considered separate. I've uploaded screenshots of the Walkden Town centre website, which says it's free and even has a map of the retail park that includes KFC and its car park. I've since learned that KFC doesn't open until 11am. I am going to try and get a picture of the signage, but i don't have it now. My worry is I am going to get another one of these because I know I did the same routine the day after. Is it right that they can charge you for parking when it isn't even open? I assume you can park there if you are a KFC customer. Can I argue I was waiting for it to open, assuming it it would open at 9am, and then left when I saw it hadn't opened? I've downloaded the formal challenge letter template that asks for their contract, signage etc so I can decide how to deal with the matter. Should I send that right away, and is there anything else I need to do? layout.pdf
