Hi, I have received a PCN from Premier Park for parking in Exeter Road Car Park in Braunton, Devon. I parked in this carpark for 20 mins at 19:06 and it was dark. I did not realise that it was a paid car park as the notices were not that clear and lighting was low. 'Contrevention date': 2nd November, 2017. The issue date of the PCN: 8th November, 2017. The PCN requests £60 if paid by 14 days from issue date or £100 afterwards. I have googled around and this car park seems to have a history of this issue. I do not live any where near the car park, I cannot get images etc. From what I have read, Premier Park provides images in daylight or with a strong flash to 'prove' that they have enough lighting. I cannot provide this evidence, but even in the images that they have provided on the PCN form shows how dark it is. Could you provide me with any advice for a potential defence. Also, if I apeal to Premier Park (which I expect they will turn down) and then go to POPLA, will this mean that if I am refused, they will charge £100. Any advice is appreciated.
Recently had a direct debit presented to my TSB account when there were insufficient funds. However, I knew that a BACS transfer from my employer (they had short paid me this month) was to reach the account the next day. I rang TSB and explained the situation, they stated that "they couldn't see inbound payments, regardless of where they are coming from" I don't understand this at all because under the BACS scheme, the fund would have been already with TSB ready for payment to my account the next day! Indeed every bank I've previously had an account with has always been able to see an inbound BACS payment the day before. I then asked if they would consider making the payment and they told me that I didn't qualify for an overdraft and there was no flexibility there (computer says no syndrome) I then asked them to confirm for certain whether or not the payment would be returned, to which they told me they couldn't and it was "up to the computer" later that afternoon?! Surely it's not unreasonable for me to expect the bank to be able to tell me for certain whether or not they are going to return a payment? Had they confirmed for certain, i would have cancelled my meetings that I had scheduled and borrowed the funds from a colleague and taken them to the branch by hand to pay in. However because they couldn't tell me I decided to take the chance.. . Obviously it didn't go in my favour! My question is, are TSB talking rubbish about not seeing BACS payments and not being able to tell me if they are going to make a payment or not? All seems very 1990's to me and a world away from my experiences of First Direct / HSBC
