About Me


  1. Hi, I have received a Civil Parking Charge Notice from Athena ANPR Ltd for exceeding the parking time limit in a Lidl car park in Barnsley. I registered my VRN in the store to validate my stay - I did not realise there was a one hour limit. There are signs around the car park but I did not park near one of them and I did not read them. The signs were not big enough to be read from a distance. How do I proceed with this?
  2. My husband has received a Civil Parking Charge Notice, it's dated 20th November but we received it today!! He was parked for 1:45:12, so 15 minutes and 12 seconds more than allowed. My issue is that we have recently bought an electric car and are lucky that in our local Lidl there is a charging point for 2 cars. Unfortunately there aren't any signs as to what it is and any time I go in I have to wait to park. I have had 2 people kindly telling me there are other spaces, when I point out that I can only use 2 they say 'oh, I wondered what that was'. My husband was parked for less th

  4. Lidl - Athena Civil parking charge notice received. I admit I'm probably very late dealing with this but just had a lot on. I did shop in Lidl that day, its a new shop and it was the first time I had been in there since it opened. I have attached the parking charge notice and photos of where I'm supposed to enter my reg number. The picture coming down the escalator to the car park there is one small sign and screen. No sign at all on the doors leading from the car park into the shop, perhaps to tell you that you have to enter any reg numbers into a machine. The pi
  5. Hi all, Received an NTK about a civil parking charge notice from Athena in the post today, I've done some reading on the forum so haven't contacted them and will not disclose who the driver is. Car was parked at LIDL for 50 mins but the driver did not register at the terminal for the 1.5 hrs free parking. The driver did a full shop with debit card (we have receipt as well). LIDL address is: LIDL Walthamstow 43-49 High Street, Walthamstow, London, E17 7LD (google says 7AD but notice and other sites say 7LD) What's the best course of action? Letter to LIDL CEO depar
  6. Hi I've just received a overdue reminder from them for the same thing now demanding payment within 7 days of there reminder letter I've just been ignoring them not quite sure what to write back as also it's been way over 28 days for appeal can anyone help?
  7. Hello, I have recently come across this thread and at my wits end. I'm someone that has always paid whatever fine possible and tried to stay away from these wicked exploitation which brings me to my recent dilemma. I received a 'civil parking charge notice' by the above mentioned body of Athena APNR Ltd. It details the Incident date : 5/3/16 Issue date: 9/3/16 Parking charge: £90 With no mention of a law under any section by the way. The problem is the time I have used the parking space. I parked there due to the fact that the store was closed which was at 2:47 am. My
  8. Hello everyone, I received the above notice through my friend over the weekend demanding £90 subject to a discount of £45 if paid within 14 days. The incident took place on Saturday 05/03/16 at the LIDL car park in Waltham Cross, I was driving my friend’s car at the time so the notice was sent to him as the registered owner of the car. The issue date of the notice is 09/03/16. I apparently stayed for 22 minutes at the car park while the allowed time according to the notice is 10 minutes. I have since gone back to check and the allowed free time at the car park for customers is 90 minutes!
  9. Hi, I'm a regular Lidl customer and can prove it from receipts. On 25/07/14 I parked in Lidl as my wife had a hospital appt (a 20week pregnancy scan) and the hospital parking/on street parking nearby is a nightmare. I intended to return within the 90mins allowed to shop in Lidl (I did shop in Lidl afterwards but it was after I left the car-park (exited car-park 13:31, time on receipt 15:07)). We ran a bit late (as the baby was not in correct position!) and I didn't want to miss the scan by running back to Lidl so we were 17mins 52 seconds over the allowed 90mins. I now hav
  10. Hi there I would like to ask for advice re unfair parking charges at Lidl / Athena car park in Eltham SE9 Thanks Ross
  11. My girlfriend(RK) received a NTK(attached) from Athena ANPR Ltd for 'Exceeded Free Parking Duration' at Lidl. The limit was 90 minutes but we exceeded by 12 minutes. Incident Date is 08/09, NTK issue Date is 10/09 and it hit the doormat on the 12th September. I was driving that day. As many times in the past, we waited for our daughter to finish her guitar lessons nearby, after we done some shopping at Lidl. My girlfriend(RK) paid for the shopping with her Credit card. She doesn't have the Lidl receipt but the transaction shows up on her credit card statement. Is it worth appealing?
  12. Hello there, I know this will have been asked time and time again, but I just wanted to get the latest on where we stand with our friends Athena ANPR Ltd. Basically I got a ticket while parking in Lidl last week for longer than ten minutes as I thought it was still under the 90 minute ruling. I don't have the money to pay this - hence I paid somewhere I thought was free... It seems the advice to ignore it has now changed, so what is the best course of action? This particular Lidl seems to require you to give your number plate in at the till, however no receipt is issue
  13. I'm hoping this will be straightforward - I see there are many similar posts in this forum. I received a Civil Parking Charge Notice 'Notice to Keeper' from Athena ANPR Ltd for 'Exceeded Free Parking Duration' at Lidl. The limit was 90 minutes and this was exceeded by 25 minutes. The Incident Date was 22/11, NTK issue Date is 25/11 and I received it 27/11. The car had been parked in Lidl whilst I did some shopping for a friend I was helping to move into a flat nearby. I entered the car park at 13:26, have a till receipt for 14:04 (28 mins later), took the shopping to my friend &
  14. Hi TaurusLeo & Amradillo71 re: http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?452149-Civil-Parking-Charge-Notice-by-Athena-ANPR-Ltd-for-Parking-in-Lidl&p=4823265#post4823265 I just received the exact same letter for parking in Lidl from Athena ANPR Ltd, I was 13 minutes over the 90 minute 'allowed duration of stay'. I have a receipt for purchases in store. I just wondered which template you sent to them as an appeal? There is so much information out there about how to go about it, but your letter obviously worked! Many Thanks
  15. My partner went to lidl and was there for only 38 minutes has received a penalty for not registering her car with lidl, she is from Poland and has a limited amount of English understanding, as she could not read the signs properly she went by the photos which she understood to be no1, park your car, no2, do shopping, no3, push button but she could not find a button to push so she drove out because she was within the specified time of 90 minutes, when I looked at the parking sign the button she referred to was a picture of a finger &am
  16. Hi everyone, My first post. I have read through many of the sucess and ongoing stories in relation to these shenanigans, and must say you guys are quite amazing giving up our own time to help others. I am almost sure now how to proceed with this, but I wanted to be sure. I recieved my 1st letter today 05/09/15. The contravention was on 29/08/15. The charge was issued on 03/09/15. They have changed the parking restrictions to 10 mins unless you have your car reg validated by Lidl staff. I was totally unware of this until today and no staff told me about it. I hav
  17. Hello to everyone reading this which is also my first post, Earlier today i received a "CIVIL PARKING CHARGE NOTICE" from parking in a Barnsley LIDL car park a few days ago. The charge is £90 at a discount of £45 if paid within 14 days. I was 31 minutes and 58 seconds over the 10 minutes free parking. The situation - In all honesty i wasn't even aware the parking was only for 10 minutes free as i could barely read the sign from where i was stood but i'll go back and check tomorrow so lets disregard this for now. I parked up, popped down the road for maybe 5-10
  18. This is a copy of the email I've sent to Lidl. Looking on line there are many others who are very unhappy. I am writing to express my extreme dissatisfaction with the way I have been treated by Lidl regarding a parking fine I received by post on 29/08/15. The CIVIL PARKING CHARGE NOTICE arrived just when I had returned from my weekly shop at your Streatham branch on 29/08/15. After paying I was asked for my car registration and given an explanation as to why this was needed, previously I had been asked but no explanation as to why my registration was required had been given, so I ref
  19. In September 2014 I received a parking penalty reminder, from Parking eye, 5 weeks after a car of which I am the registered keeper, and with 4 named drivers, allegedly overstayed in Rheidol carpark, Aberystwyth by 15 minutes. This was the first communication received from the company. I responded to that communication and heard nothing more until June 2015 which was court proceedings intention. Again I responded to that letter. Today I received a county court claim pack of 47 pages, which includes copies of documentation they apparently sent to me, but which I
  20. I have used your site for many years on different matters; always using your letter templates and always achieving a successful outcome, so thank you to the excellent advice you give. However, I currently have a situation with Athena ANPR and would be grateful for any help or advice any of your members could offer. On 7th May, this year, I received a Civil Parking Charge Notice, due to my vehicle overstaying the allowable free parking time in a Lidl Supermarket Car Park in Liverpool, on 1st May. The reasons behind the overstay are really irrelevant, but needless to say, the sign said 90
  21. I am expecting a civil PCN to land any day now after being told it had been received by my employer (I drive a company car). I have read quite a lot of previous posts but seem to see half saying ignore the PCN, and another half saying don't ignore it, appeal it. As a lot of these previous posts go back months/years, I dont know if the best way of handling them has changed so am hoping for a more up to date suggestion of a response. I pulled into a car park (Lidl) while on a hands free phone call, knowing it was going to go on for ages so thought it best to just stop and pick it up. 25
  22. I recived a Civil Parking Change Notice from Athnea ANPR showing photos of my car entering and departing Lidl Crowthonre on the 03/06/2015. The Charge is £60.00 with a discount for paying early of £25 The Issue Date was 05/06/15 Photo shows my car entering at 09:22 on the 03/06/15 Next Photo shows my car exiting at 11:37 on the same day. This would have exceed the posted 2 hour "Free" parking period by 15 minutes, total time in car park 02:15:14 What should i do?

  25. My wife recently received a PCN invoice from this company, after over-staying in a Lidl car park beyond the permitted 90 minutes. I have written and posted an appeal letter to Athena on her behalf, which I posted one week ago. Unfortunately, I do not have proof of posting. Should I follow this up with an email to them or just wait for a response. My concern is they may claim they never received the appeal. I appreciate your advice. Boofie.
