  1. Advice please - I parked in NCP Barnet on 27.12.18. No barriers and am not local, but local friend I was meeting assured me it was pay to park...….thought I'd take a photo of the location number, finally found a machine - weren't any notices, and then tried to pay at the machine. Was as number plate one and despite several attempts could only pay £1.50 ……..then received PCN to keeper last week. Anything I can do - I think I prob underpaid by £1, and I know its my fault, but £60 seems a bit steep! Any help gratefully received, Many thanks Date of the infringement 27/12/2018 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] Date of sending is 18/01/19 3 Date received 21/01/19 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [y/n?] No 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Yes 6 Have you appealed? {y/n?] post up your appeal] No Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up 7 Who is the parking company? NCP 8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] Spires Barnet For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. It says complain to NCP There are two official bodies, the BPA and the IAS. If you are unsure, please check HERE- BPA If you have received any other correspondence, please mention it here I have not received any other information but the letter does say that if payment is recieved within 14 days then I could pay £60 instead of th £100 they intend to charge. The letter also says that if I want to appeal I must do so within 14 days.
  2. I received this PCN a month after the event. The ticket was not issued at the site as I drove off before it could be attached to my windscreen. Is there not a time limit by which tickets have to be received? Plus £130 seems excessive. Allowing no option to pay 50% reduction fee- I thought they had to. Please advise.
  3. Hi, I have received a PCN back in October from Barnet council on Sunday evening 20:53. I only stopped for about 10 minutes to go into a shop and had no idea I had to pay on Sunday evenings. I kind of forgot about it and moved addresses now I received a letter from Newlyn PLC that I have to pay the multiples of the original fees. I never received any letter from Barnet council probably because I moved addresses. By the way there was pitch dark in the street I parked and it was raining heavy so there was no way to see the parking sign. Is there anything I can do? I can attach some pictures. Vehicle Registration Number -- Penalty Charge Notice -- Date 12/10/2014 Time 20:51 Colour Black Was seen in YEW GROVE (5836) Contravention 12® Parked in a residents' or shared use parking place or zone without clearly displaying either a permit or voucher or pay and display ticket issued for that place (residents' bay) Thank you
  4. Hi, I was attending a hair appointment in Hendon which was supposed to rum from 10 -11am and parked in Wykeham Road which had resident only restrictions between 11am -midday; however I expected to be back at the car for 11am. Unfortunatley the appointment overran and I didnt get back until 11:20 by which time I found a ticket. I immediatley rang the helpline and to be fair the woman was sympathetic and recommended that I get a letter from the hair salon on headed paper confirming that I was in their shop and that the appointment, through no fault of my own, had overrun. The lady gave me an email address to send my case through with along with the scanned letter. This was on 26th February. Having not even received an acknowledgement I resent the email on Mon 3rd March and this time received an instant standard response stating that they acknowledged my email. 2 weeks later and I had still not heard anything back so sent a chaser which again I received an instant response too. Today -38 days after my initial email I have received a response which is neo standard response stating that they after 'careful consideration' they had decided not to cancel the ticket which I half expected. However, what really concerned me is that they have stated that as over 14 days have elapsed I now have to pay the full price of £110! I have responded stating that not only am I very disappointed with the very standard response and the fact that they have not shown any acknowledgement of my actual situation that I disagree that I have to pay the full amount as all their holding emails stated that whilst they looked into the case it would be on hold. Whilst I am just chancing that they will ignore the 'appeal' - I have always been resigned that I would have to pay the £55 surely they cant now expect me to pay the full amount?? Have they contravened any of their own regulations? If I offer to pay £55 now within the 14 day window and they reject would the law be on my side if they took it further?? Any help or assistance would be appreciated. Thanks,
  5. Have received 2 x PCN notices for parking next to a dropped kerb. Had no idea that this was not allowed. I have attached the photos from the first PCN notice so you can see what the score is. The car is parked next to a dropped kerb. You will see from the photos that we took care not to obstruct the persons driveway. When collecting the PCN a member of the public on the street advised that the family which own the house have a disabled daughter and that is why the kerb is there. As you can see the drive is not obstructed. What can I do to appeal against this? £55 x 2 seems very harsh and I am surprised there are no signs warning people not to park there. http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/845/12372624.jpg http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/202/82000890.jpg http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/197/98961505.jpg http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/526/97379369.jpg
  6. Hi, I received 3 PCN for being in a bus lane at Cricklewood broadway. The 1st one received on 06/07/12 for offence commited on 29/06/12 then received on 10/07/12 for offence commited on 21/06/12 and finally on 13/07-12 for the last one (I hope) commited on 02/07/12 I did not deliberately go to the bus lane because I am a bad person. I just prematurely went as I saw the end of bus lane sign and I wanted to caught the traffic lights still on green. Since the end of bus line sign was right there I thought it would be ok to jump in only a few meters before it actually ended. I can guarantee since the 1st pcn arrived I never went there again so I learned my lesson in a hard way. If they hadn't waited so long to send the pcn I would have avoided the other 2! Also I challenged the fine as I read about the 20meters concession rule which basically says if you go to the bus lane prematurely but no more then 20m it is "acceptable". I also sent Barnet council many e-mails asking for the recordings but they've never sent me. I did this straight away on the day I received the pcn. I thought it was strange that they wouldn't even send an e-mail to acknowledge my e-mail so I was afraid they would just ignore me and I would have to end up paying the full ammount of the fine. I know it says they would still give a chance to pay half the amount if they refuse the appeal but I thought I might not be able to prove that I asked to see the recording - although I have the e-mails on my sent items so I decided to pay the fine after 13 days passed (as 14 days is the deadline). It seems that is what the council was waiting for. They waited till I paid the fine and then sent me a letter saying that they've considered my challenged but they've seen the recording and were satisfied that I did commit the offence. They also say in this letter that by paying the pcn I am implicit accepting liability when the truth is that THEY have implicit forced me to pay as they ignored my right to see the recording. It is absolutely unacceptable that they haven't sent me the recording after I explicit said that I WANT to see it and it is my right to see it. Why haven't they sent it with the letter? Is there anyway I can force them to send me the recordings? Who regulates the council? What should I do? Please help!!! Thanks.
  7. Dear all, This has been sent to my father, last week. My mother was driving in a bus lane, however, is it usual to not include photographic evidence of the alleged contravention anymore, or is that just me being old fashioned, and owners are expected to log in online to see themselves on grainy CCTV? Advise sought! Best wishes, Barnet PCN bus lane 14.06.2012 WEB.pdf
