  1. Hello, we have only just discovered letters from both britannia and Debt recovery plus about a parking charge. the date of the charge states: 20/01/2018 Date of this notice: 18/05/2018 The creditor: Britannia parking Location: Swindon Lydiards field, swindon, SN5 8UY Reason for issue: Parking longer than the maximum time permitted We're pretty sure we were in costa at the time and had an issue with our daughter who had terrible stomach problems at the time and so we couldn't exactly run out of the building to move the car. We have been into costa and it states in several places within the building that they are not liable for any parking charges. In the letter they are suggesting that they are offering a "Final settlement offer of £136 to avoid court action" to be paid at a date no later than 01/06/2018. Which is a ludicrously large amount for a parking charge. We have been doing some research on parking charges and have seen varied thoughts on the matter. Many leaning towards ignoring the companies or corresponding with them to not accept the charge but have also seen a couple of cases with people having to pay court fees of £24,000 which is frankly terrifying. The letter also states that "a court judgement could affect your creditworthiness" I realise that it is the job of DRP to scare people but nonetheless we are extremely anxious and panicking about this situation and really could use some advice as to what action to take here as we seem to be running out of time. We would be incredibly grateful if you could please help us with some advice as we are debating whether to pay, but obviously we don't want to. Thankyou in advance!
  2. I have received a 'Parking charge notice' from Britannia for staying over the 1 hour time. This is the first time I have ever been charged in 3 YEARS as Costa themselves said before that the parking restrictions were not acted on. The car park is based at J16 of the M4 and is shared with Subway, Greggs, Londis and Costa (+drive through). There is no option to pay for extra time or at all.
  3. I have received a Parking Charge Notice from Britannia Parking for overstaying the maximum parking time. The car park in question is located next to a Costa, where I was in a meeting for 3 hours. The question is if I should pay the discounted charge, appeal the charge (if so, on what grounds?), or just ignore as it is a notice to keeper? The details of the notice are as follows: 1 Date of the infringement - 10/07/2017 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] - 17/07/2017 3 Date received - 22/07/2017 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? - N 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? - Yes ANPR with date and time signature of car (cannot see driver) 6 Have you appealed? - N 7 Who is the parking company? - Britannia Parking 8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] - Lydiard Field (Costa), Swindon IMG_4145.pdf
