  1. 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.

  2. Hi all, sorry for the long post but never been in this position before.... we received an enforcement letter through the door last night in my old name ( i changed my name via deed poll) demanding £542 . after doing some ringing around we've established its for a part unpaid council tax bill in 2014 ( which we wasn't aware of until we got this letter yesterday) phoned the council who advised the amount outstanding is £192.04 and gave us the dates (it was an honest mistake at a crap time & didn't even realise it wasn't paid until now) they are saying they wont help now i
  3. Just got back from an appointment to find the parking arrangements have yet again changed. It's not my local hospital and I attend maybe once a year. Things used to be simple with a barrier entry/ticket then after your appointment put your ticket in the machine then pay before exiting. Then the barrier got smashed off and they relied on a person taking reg numbers and times giving you ticket to pay in the coffee shop before you exit. Today's visit was most confusing, with people waiting at the ticket machine not sure whether to pay before of when you exit. It appears most peop
  4. Hi All, I'm new to this forum but hope someone can help me out? I received a PCN through post yesterday from PCP enforcement agency (trading name of parkshield collection Ltd) Date of event (doesn't say offence)-30/08/2018 location - service/estate roads off anchor road,harbourside,Bristol,bs1 During period from: 22:20:55 to time of notice issue at:22:40:18 reason for issue- no valid permit Now the only problem with this notice is that I've never been to Bristol and the vehicle in question has been SORN off road for 2 years and is parked at my parents house except when i

  6. Aplogies as an absolute newbie here, however I was asked to create a new thread. There is another recent thread (I can't post links, maybe someone else could as seems daft to recreate a whole heap of stuff). I am in the identical situation at the same location I have just received an identical letter from UKCPS, all details completely as the above mentioned thread (same paperwork). My wife was driving my car that day, obviously she didn't spot any signage etc. 28 minutes over a 4hr limit..... Disgusted that companies can request such 'fees', she is disabled (was parked in
  7. Hi everyone, I am looking for some help and guidance please. In August 2017 i received an out of the blue phone call from a debt collection agency. They advised that they were acting on behalf of Bristol City Council (BCC) and they had been instructed to recover several hundred pounds in relation to three unpaid Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs). I advised the caller that i had never had a PCN in my life and in the event i did, i would have certainly taken care of it by now. I asked the caller to confirm the vehicle details and it transpires that the vehicle is my da
  8. I have had a long and frustrating situation with my car which has recently come to a frustrating head. 29/04/2017 - I bought a used Peugeot 208 Style for £8,399 with finance in the form of an unsecured loan. I was not informed of this at the time, the vehicle did not have a full service history, and I didn't know to ask, this being my first car, and my dad specialises in old cars, which are lucky to have any service history at all, so he didn't think to ask. Within a month, I was having issues with the car stalling and pulling to the right on larger, open roads where you act
  9. Dear all, My first post so apologies beforehand if I should follow a certain procedure. Congrats for the fantastic content and advice -- although at times not easy to follow. I got today on the post a £100 Parking Charge Notice from a PCP Enforcement Agency I honestly do not remember parking there; in fact, I don't even know where this is exactly. In any case, the whole letter seems to be written to deceive - maybe what you call a Speculative Invoice. I do think I may have parked in a spot with "clear signage" (eye for detail is not my thing, unfortunately).
  10. My friend I live with owes some council tax which he has been paying back monthly. He owes 246 pounds, and was supposed to make a payment on 15th month. He forgot, it was not a deliberate oversight. The bailiff came to the door, thought he was going to smash the door down. I went running down in my nightie wondering what the hell was wrong. This man just said you are being recorded and can I speak to so n so. I am working for the council, and I am from Bristol and sutor. I replied he's not in. Then he said can you ring him and I said no because I'm wait
  11. New Aldi has opened up in Portishead, Bristol - and includes ANPR cameras for Parking Eye, with an hour and a half parking limit. They have made two mistakes..... (1) They bought the store from the Co-Op who decided to pull out of the town due to increased competition (Waitrose, Lidl, Iceland, Sainsburys etc) but the original covenant when change of use was placed on the land and Co-Op got planning consent was that a minimum of 2 hours free parking is provided. (2) The planning application for Aldi to make various changes to the store appearance & to redesign the car park di
  12. I recently, [yesterday], spotted an advert for a 2014 Nissan note 1.5cdi Tekna pre reg with 10 miles on clock for an excellent price £11,449 in parkers and autotrader on line. I decided this car was what I was looking for so went to view and buy it. When i got there the sales man and I presume the sales manager did everything to put me off, the car was not ready yet, we cannot sell it yet till 30/10 2014, its now mid September even advising me to go to their competitors to buy one from them they could not get rid of me quick enough even though I told them I had a thousand pound in my

  14. Been treated badly by Bristol Street Motors? I have, and I plan to make them pay. I would welcome contact with like minded people who fancy a bit of direct action.
