  1. Thanks again for the input guys, Another follow up letter from QDR attached 202108091014.pdf
  2. Thanks Honey bee, Have attached the letter after info redacted-I think I have deleted the original attachment ?? Can site admin please verify Thanks in advance 202108021104.pdf
  3. Hello all, So QDR have written and the outstanding balance continues to increase !!!! Been on holiday so only just opened it and it looks like the 14 days I had to make payment ends today- Letter attached 202108021048.pdf
  4. Good point re GDPR, if they are play by the rules- We'll e mail it over and see what happens Have mentioned the point about their misleading website Thanks as always for your collective inputs
  5. Thanks for your reply I thought the collective view was that it would be the surgery that has contracted PE to manage their car park facilities? On the surgery website, it does say they will help to cancel 'fines' as they describe them if the user had a legitimate appointment in 'their' facilties and not the other NHS clinic next door FTM Dave advised writing to the surgery for assistance in cancelling the charge to avoid further protraction/ court etc. When I phoned and spoke to presumably a receptionist who also referred it to a manager, they advised as you indicate that it's nothing to do with them if we weren't using their surgery I guess there is no harm in trying to appeal to their better nature with a letter but my concern was that if they were not willing to be helpful that by adding my wifes name could give them the driver info which could be passed to PE which I understood could be a bad thing?
  6. FTM Dave et al. Letter drafted to the surgery manager, just about to push send and wondered if my wife sending it by e mail would disclose her name and therefore the driver details? Could they pass this to PE who could use it against us?? Is it better to send the letter by mail anonymously ? Difficult to get any feedback if we go this route. Latest chase letter received- attached for the record 202107220950.pdf
  7. Hi All, Thanks for the housekeeping of the thread. latest missive from ZZPS on behalf of OPS, indicating they will pass to QDR solicitors if the increased cost of £170 is not settled. All standard stuff I assume and the advice is still to do nothing. 202107011452.pdf
  8. It can't hurt to send the letter as you suggest, We will give it a go Also, see attached what I can only assume is a reminder for the original charge, wording is pretty similar although tis dated on the 23rd, received on the 25th and only discounted if paid by today 28th ? 202106281253.pdf
  9. Hi All,, Just for completeness I noticed when driving past this car park the other day some additional signs at the entrance- attached for your review, - A banner above the entrance and a just park sign some way off to the left of the entrance Don't think it changes much and as previously stated no planning permission could be located for any signs or cameras Vantage point entrance Brighton.pdf
  10. Photos of 175 & 177 as requested in the attached files, At 175 the entrance sign simply says its a private car park, Only a few warning signs high up dotted around with writing so small you couldn't possibly read it. helpfully the 3rd photo shows a sign which could only be read on the way out. You can see the cameras centrally on the main building shot. 177 has no public parking so it seems, only staff but you can access it from the 175 car park and as said before they are both NHS facilities ?? 175 preston rd Brighton Parking eye Photos-converted.pdf 177 preston rd Photos-converted.pdf
  11. Called the surgery this morning, Extremely unhelpful, can't get involved because its manged by a private company and there was no appointment with them. Surely its all NHS so what does it matter, They smugly advised that the car had been parked in the wrong place and that we should take it up with the parking company. I checked on planning permission and Parking Eye applied for cameras and signage in 2016
  12. Thanks for your feedback, the wrinkle is that my wife was attending the clinic next door to this surgery- Number 177 and they say its their car park and they are number 175, as it mentions they will only provide evidence in support of an appeal to have the claim nullified by Parking Eye, If she was legitimately using the car park to use their surgery. She parked there inadvertently, it may have been stated on various signs whose car park it was but it was her first visit and she was in an emotional state. Is it worth contacting them to see if they will support in this exceptional case or fight it out with Parking Eye as you advise on other claims?
  13. Heres the summary data completed below, PCN issued 4 days after the event, Doesn't explicitly say what they charge is for but it is implied I guess on the back page, (2nd scan on my first post) that by not buying a tickwet etc that the charge is payable For PCN's received through the post [ANPR camera capture] (must be received within 14 days from the Incident) Please answer the following questions. 1 Date of the infringement 10/06/21 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 14/06/21 3 Date received 17/06/21 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? CAMERA SHOTS OF ARRIVAL AND LEAVING 6 Have you appealed? [Y/N?] post up your appeal] NO 7 Who is the PARKING company? PARKING EYE 8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] 175 medical centre paitients,, BRIGHTON, BN1 6AG For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. POPLA
  14. Hi Guys Another parking ticket, this time my wife who went for a sensitive medical appointment and naturally parked in what she thought was the clinic car park, Turns out the medical centre referred to the Doctors surgery next door to the clinic she was visiting. Innocent mistake esp under emotional circumstances. PCN attached from Parking eye. I note it says charges are not applicable if you book in at the doctors surgery which clearly she didn't do as she was at the clinic next door, their website reads as follows: Parking at Stanford Medical Centre . The car park at 175 Preston road has a camera controlled car park management system To use the car park you MUST enter your registration number into one of the screens at the reception desks or on the ground floor. For more information click here . . If you have come to the surgery for an appointment and forgotten to put in your registration you will have received a fine. You must appeal that fine and when Parking Eye ask you for proof we can provide you with evidence that you were here at the surgery. You can then attach this to their online form which is available here or you can send this with your appeal in the post. . Please note if you were not here for an appointment or not one of our patients we cannot provide any evidence for you. Please do not use the car park for the services at 177 Preston Road or for Preston Road. So it seems if she had gone to the Doctors surgery and forgotten to log in then they would defend her claim but not for visiting another medical establishment next door !!!! What are your collective thoughts- I could fill in the std questionnaire if needed and obtain photos of signs and check planning etc. ParkingEyePCN.pdf
  15. Hello All, I did wonder if I'd seen the last of this claim but not to disappoint, the saga continues with seeming escalation to a debt recovery company ZZPS- Letter attached, As it does not state a Letter Before Claim/Letter Before Action. Do I assume the advice is to continue to ignore it ? Thanks in advance as always Not that we are serial non paying parkers, but my wife has received another parking ticket from a doctors surgery which she took to be the car park for the clinic she was visiting next door to it, I'll post this on another thread 2021-06-14 ZZPS.pdf
  16. Appreciate your quick review and feedback, Yes the entrance sign is the last one in the file. it does indeed appear that there is a disparity with the pay point signs and others. Totally agree that the suggestion that users should consult the internet before complying is an unreasonable expectation. Do these facts as well as the font size all go towards building sufficient defence and therefore rejection of the claimed charge? Thanks in advance
  17. Please see requested photos of car park signage attached Vantage point photos.pdf
  18. OK, I'll get some photos and upload them I've had a look at the council planning application website and cannot find any application's either current or historic for signs using the name or postcode of the car park- I take it that's a good thing
  19. Hello All, Thanks for your input so far Having followed your collective advice to do nothing, Today I received a final demand in the post for £100 from OPS. I imagine you have seen these letters before which essentially says it needs to be paid within 14 days or they may pass the debt to a solicitor for legal action and possible additional costs What's your advice as to my next move ? Thanks in advance
  20. appeals don't work, I guessed as much as you are really only asking for lenience or some compassion to the specific circumstance and I assume their stock answer is to hide be their rules stated on the notices in the car park. They indicate in the event of non payment it 'may' result in enforcement action which many include debt recovery or court proceedings. I don't fancy the idea of debt collectors at the door or court proceedings damaging my credit scores etc. When you say wait and see, what are the likely or typical outcomes in these cases, I assume the charge will rise to at least the £100 they state plus additional costs Thanks
  21. dx100uk, Thanks for your feedback, Didn't notice the reference numbers in multiple places, Hopefully I have redacted all of them in the attached version? understand that your advice is not to appeal, Look forward to your ideas to resolve Thanks again 202104261359.pdf
  22. Hello, I was suitably disgruntled when I received the attached NTK from the notorious OPS who I see have been taking people for disproportionate sums of money for several years especially in and around the Brighton area. On this occasion I used their facility to safely unload and load a bike to the nearby cycle store which took longer than it need to due to COVID distancing measures meaning I needed to queue and adhere to one customer in the shop rules in order to complete the handover, What should have taken 5 mins turned into 17 mins. I can understand that they are doing their job and if you blatantly use a facility for longer term parking purposes and don't pay then a fine is probably appropriate but this seems excessive and has prompted me to join this forum and ask for any help to counter the charge. Thanks in advance. Form completed below and NTK uploaded For PCN's received through the post [ANPR camera capture] (must be received within 14 days from the Incident) Please answer the following questions. 1 Date of the infringement 14/04/21 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 22/04/21 3 Date received 24/04/21 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? CAMERA SHOTS OF ARRIVAL AND LEAVING 6 Have you appealed? [Y/N?] post up your appeal] NO 7 Who is the PARKING company? ONE PARKING SOLUTION 8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] VANTAGE POINT, BRIGHTON, BN1 4GW For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. Cant see that if references either of the 2 options you indicated but it does mention POPLA In either case scan up bothsides of any letters/tickets in or appeals made out to ONE MULTIPAGE PDF ONLY please do not put JPG Picture files into your post
