About Me


  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
  2. Hi, I got slapped with pretty much the same PCN at the same car park. My wife was driving the car and she did pay the £2.50 after she arrived. However as we only got the PCN 22 days after the day she parked there the ticket is long gone. The date of the incident was the 6th of December and we got the PCN on the 28th of December. I have seen from the signs posted here that they say you don't need to display the ticket in the car but that you should keep it as a proof (who keeps their tickets?). The PCN claims we breached the 'contract' by parking without payment
  3. Hi all, I travelled to London on 12/02, returning on the 13/02. I have TWO parking charge notices on my windscreen, one for each day - for not parking within a bay. When I arrived at the carpark, there were no spaces available and several vehicles were parked in places that were not marked as bays, but in areas that did not cause any obstruction to the carpark in the slightest. If it was one fine I would probably suck it up and pay it, but the attendant could clearly see I paid for two days parking (obviously not returning to the car in the meantime) and has ticketed me on

  5. Hello I'm hoping you can help me. I received a NTK from NCP using ANPR for parking longer than paid for. Now the issue is that driver (not me) brought a ticket for 24hr parking costing £2.50 and i have a photo of this. The car park in question is protected by ANPR and the driver brought the ticket at 17:07 before leaving the car park 17:16. in my simple world there is nothing to worry about as we should win the appeal ? As i'm the keeper and not the driver who should appeal ? what would be in your minds would be the best approach ? 1 Date of the infrin
  6. I paid for 2hr and went over by 30 mins, do these parking charge notices to keeper have to be paid. What are the options What are the chances of it going to court and then debt collectors. 1) Date of Incident. 28/10/2018 2) Date of them sending NTK 09/11/2018 3) Date recieved 12/11/2018 4) Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of the protection of freedom act 2012 No 5) photographic evidence Pictures of front and rear date and t
  7. Hello all, I have been directed your way from an advice thread on reddit. I received a letter in the post from NCP the other day stating that I now owe them £100 (reduced to £60 if paid within 14 days) for parking in their car park without paying. However, the kicker is that I didn't actually park there. I entered the car park to pick somebody up and left 15 minutes later. I've logged in to check what pictures they actually have, all they have are pictures of my vehicle entering the car park and leaving 15 minutes later. They don't have any evidence of me walking o
  8. HI I drove into the NCP in Lincoln several times over the last few weeks to collect keys from an office behind. I park in the private car park at the back. You have to drive through the NCP to get to it. I have received a PCN for £100 as they clocked me going in and then leaving 19 mins later. I didnt park in their car park!!! I will get several more of these over the next few days so am livid. Surely they cannot charge you to drive through their car park, it is the only entrance to the private one at the back that they dont own. Also, now they photograph you arrivin
  9. My wife parked my car in an NCP car park in Ipswich for 15mins on 6th dec. She had some issues paying with her phone via Ringo. However, payment was made successfully as was confirmed by her bank statement. Yesterday we received a letter from Trace debt recovery for 160 pounds. We phoned NCP who said they sent letters (they didn't). We have finally managed to get them to allow us to appeal on their website, previously it was locked out. How should we appeal? I can attach a screenshot of the bank statement, but what explanation should I give. I've never
  10. Hi a quick question please. I waited in an ncp station car park when collecting someone from a station. didn't get out of the car but unfortunately my passenger was delayed as his coach broke down was there about 20 mins or perhaps a bit longer. didn't buy a ticket as I was just waiting in what I thought was a safe place. could just have easily waited on the street as it was in the evening. was shocked to receive a ticket by ANPR recording me arriving and leaving the car park. appealed but it was rejected have to pay £60 (rising to £100 if I delay pa
  11. Hi, Appreciate some advice on my situation. I am the keeper and owner but was not the driver for the following situation which I have ignored totally upto now. Circumstances of the charge and correspondence to date February – driver parked at London underground car park run by NCP. Paid for ticket but did not park correctly within the marked bay so Parking charge notice issued for £100 reduced to £60 if paid within 14 days. This PCN ignored. Forty days later I get the NTK letter from NCP which I don’t respond to. Thirty days later get letter from ZZPS stating the de
  12. Hi all, Looking for some advice regarding a parking charge received in an NCP car park for having an expired ticket. I park there every weekday for work, I pay for 2 hours as I'm in the office usually for about an hour before heading out again, but on this day I was delayed leaving and returned 20 minutes after it had expired to find one of their lovely bogus charges. I received the ticket stuck to my windscreen, with the time of year and seemingly countless work and personal life issues I didn't get round to writing an appeal. The Notice to Keeper arrived in du
  13. Hello All, thank you all for the advice that follows; My car has been photographed at the above station and issued with a PCN in the early evening but that PCN has an incorrect reg on it. I, like many others, just want assurance that the PCN is invalid due to the incorrect details being taken down and not to do anything with the PCN nor write to NCP. I always pay my parking, all the time, including this day pay by phone but I did this just before leaving London some 2 hours after the PCN was issued but by the time I got back to my car the dreaded sticky envelope was on my w
  14. I recieved a parking charge notice from NCP in the North Greenwhich 02 car park which is ANPR controlled. The barriers were open when I exited so I was not aware I had to pay
  15. Hi, I received a PCN for parking on the entrance to a train station car park but the PCN states I have "not parked correctly within the markings of the bay" Can anyone spare any thoughts as to whether this will be successfully appealed? First of all, I was parked before the barriers to the car park and secondly I wasn't parked in a bay to be not parked in it correctly? Yes, I probably shouldn't of parked there but as the car park was full, there was no where else to go. Besides, it`s not like I was causing an obstruction. Thanks in advance. D
  16. Hi Just interested in your views. The car was parked at NCP's carpark at Edinburgh airport, on returning a sticker was applied to the windscreen saying "OOPS you have parked outside the marked bay... this is a warning you may receive a parking charge notice is you do it again" or words to that effect The images is where the car was parked. I believe it was inside the bay, but more importantly the full bay marking was a short line on the ground, on the left side of the image you can only just see the mark and that was in the daylight. It was parked early morning while still dark.
  17. Hi everyone, not sure how to make my own post, but need some help. Firstly I will say I am in the wrong for what I am doing but it is all down to a member of employment from the Ncp. I park in an Ncp on the regular, one day an employee told me to park in a disabled spot as there was no spaces, so I did this. On returning to my car I had a ticket on my window for parking in a disabled bay, even though I was told I couldy. I'll just say ever since then I have had a vendetta against the Ncp, and I basically drive out behind other cars without paying (stupid I know) well I've done this numerous ti
  18. Hi guys, you were amazingly helpful in the past, so thought I would try you all again. Been doing lots of reading on the forum, but to be honest, just confusing myself. I parked at Newport train station, rushed for my train and forgot about paying for parking (usually do it via their app). remembered about 2-3pm so though "bugger, probably too late now" so paid it. Came back from London at 7pm with a parking ticket. The irony is that the ticket was timed for about 10 minutes before I paid for it online. I wrote a letter (probably against all your advice now l
  19. please help. i paid and displayed a valid ticket at an NCP car park in April 2015. when i returned to the vehicle i had a parking ticket as the ticket i had displayed on leaving the car had fallen on the floor. there was no sticky label so it was left on the dash board. NCP were not interested in my appeal nor were POPLA both stating it was my responsibility to display. i now have a letter from debt recovery plus threatening court action if i do not pay. what should i do any advise will help
  20. Hi, I have received a PCN from NCP on 30/04/2015 It states Code F3 - Not parked correctly within the markings of a bay space The fee if paid within 14 days - £50 Goes up to £75 afterwards. The registration plate on PCN has got a '0' instead of 'O' in the second field. I have, unfortunately checked PCN on their website and typed in my actual VRN but that did not bring up a result. Should I just pay £50 and have peace of mind, or wait for them to send me a letter? Many thanks!!
  21. Hello, A friend of mine has approached with their PCN they have received from NCP for not correctly parking within the lines of the space. This is new to me. In my mind how can they make any claim for this, espcially having suffered no loss. Also the car park is poorly maintained and the white lines are in fact just very small T bar at the start of the bay. Can they claim for not parking correctly in a bay? surely this is something to be appealed like all other pcn I cant upload a copy of the PCN at moment, but it is a standard one stating £50 or £100. The car park is the NCP at
  22. Evening all, I was considering just paying the ticket i received recently but the more i thought about it the more i thought it was unfair / very harsh. So i thought i would have a dig around on the net and came across this place. briefly, the circumstances of how i ended up with a ticket are: I arrived at brentwood station car park run by, and google tells me, owned by NCP. It was fairly busy in one section of the car park, i am very picky about parking my car next / close to other cars so i bombed down to an area without many cars in it at all and picked a spot on the en
  23. Hi all, I have been pointed to this forum by a friend who was certain someone on here can help. Back in November, I parked in my usual train station car park, run by NCP. I arrived later than usual, so there was no spaces in my usual spot downstairs. I had to drive to the top floor, where i found plenty of spaces. I parked up and walked away, paying for my ticket on the 'Ringo' mobile app as I do every morning. When I returned to my car I was surprised to find that I had received a ticket, as had about 12 other cars around me. It turned out that the space I parked
  24. Hello guys i wonder if you could help me. I work at a hospital that has the misfortune of employing NCP to run the parking and have now retrieved 5 tickets (Monday to Friday) for parking in a parking bay near to the department that i work in. I have now received 5 notice to keepers demanding £60 a time that's £300 ! for 5 days parking. i have checked the entrance to the site and there is no signs stating that it is pay and display car park or that parking is in any way restricted (the bay that i parked in did have short stay painted on the ground next to it but no indication of how long th
  25. Greetings... I'm new to these parts having just come over from Austin, Texas to live and work in UK for the foreseeable future. I seem to be making poor decisions regarding these silly parking tickets so I thought I'd stop the bleeding and consult y'all. I've waded through the stickys and quite a few of the posts and still a bit unsure of my status/next steps, so I thought I'd engage you good folks for some friendly advice. Basically, on 19.05, I was heading into London for work and staying over night. I parked and paid/displayed in a NCP parking lot (Mark's Tey Station) for 2 days, o
