“On the 20 May 2016 vehicle ‘reg correct’ entered the Marriott Huntington car park at 11:18:00
and departed at 13:36:24 on the 20 May 2016
The signage, which is clearly displayed at the entrance to and throughout the car park,
states that this is private land, the car park is managed by Parking Eye Ltd,
as a permit only / paid parking car park,
what parking tariffs apply and the parking charge applicable without the appropriate permit
or payment of the appropriate tariff when parking, along with other terms and conditions of the car park
by which those who park in the car park agree to be bound.
By either not purchasing the appropriate parking time or parking without a valid permit,
in accordance with the terms and conditions set out in the signage,
the Parking Charge is now payable to Parking Eye Ltd (as the Creditor).
You are notified under paragraph 9(2) (b) of schedule 4 of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012
that the driver of the motor vehicle is required to pay this parking charge in full.
As we do not know the driver's name or current postal address,
if you were not the driver at the time,
you should tell us the name and current postal address of the driver and pass this notice to them.
You are warned that if, after 29 days from the date given
(which is presumed to be the second working day after the Date Issued)
the parking charge has not been paid in full and we do not know both the name and current address of the driver,
we have the right to recover any unpaid part of the parking charge from you.
This warning is given to you under paragraph 9 (2) (f) of Schedule 4 of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012
and subject to our complying with the applicable conditions under Schedule 4 of that Act.
Should you provide an incorrect address for service,
we will pursue you for any Parking Charge amount that remains unpaid.
Should you identify someone who denies they were the driver,
we will pursue you for any Parking Charge amount that remains unpaid”
5) Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Yes
6) Have you appealed?
Not directly to Parking Eye.
I contacted the owner of the land Marriott Hotels on the 08/06/2016
and they contacted Parking Eye confirming I was a guest at a meeting
and requested the charge be cancelled.
Have you had a response? No
7 Who is the parking company? Parking Eye
For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under: Independent Appeals Service (POPLA)
If you have received any other correspondence, please mention it here
I received a further notice from Parking Eye on the 30th June
stating the charge had now gone from £65 up to £100.
And I had/have 14 days to pay it from the 30th June I assume.
The Marriott Hotel advised me I didn’t need to contact Parking Eye as they would deal with it.
After the second letter I contacted the Marriott again
and they again emailed Parking Eye asking them to cancel the parking ticket.
I am seeking advice on whether I should contact Parking Eye directly,
what have other people experienced when the landowner attempts to cancel the parking charge?
I am in the wrong in terms of the parking ticket I missed the multiple signs
(new arrangement with Parking Eye and I just didn’t realise)
Thank you for your assistance.
