  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

  4. Hi I’m after a bit of advice please , my wife had to visit an emergency doctors practice last week , she parked purchased a ticket but over stayed by 14 minutes, she has received a parking notice for £60 , is there any thing we can do ? Thank you
  5. Hi. I had a problem with a PCN from Indigo a few years ago and received excellent advice from here to "sit tight". Was successful. Thanks. However, we now have another similar case and someone told me that recent case law has changed things, so I wanted to check that sitting tight is still the right course of action. My wife parked at a Southern Railway station car park recently and used the automated phone response service to pay for a day's parking. Unfortunately, the regstration number used on the automated system was incorrect - one letter was accidently missed off. There was no win
  6. I have received a PCN for an alleged offence at the same location, https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?487668-G24-Parking-charge-while-shopping-B-amp-M-Stores-Falkirk&p=5170354#post5170354 dating the parking offence as 30th November. It alleges the driver overstayed the permitted 2hours by 11 mins I now live in England but as the alleged offence happened in Scotland am I correct that Scottish Law applies, so pursuing the keeper is illegal?
  7. Noting the branding on a cinemas car park, I parked to watch a film. Not noticing any clear notifications to pay, they clearly are there. Naturally this is a Br2ttaN3a managed carpark. I now have two letters. 1. Letter before action from the dubious BW 2. A final 16 day demand before court. I have done the following but have had no response. 1. Recorded delivery letter to parking management company, asking for evidence, print outs, and offence. 2. Recorded delivery letter to BW asking for data restriction. ( they replied saying not applicable ) 3. Lett
  8. Hello all. Regarding there being no £10 fee for SARs, I want to send HSBC a SAR (because I know that I had loans with them that had PPI but they've previously said that they don't have records that go back that far), other than there being no fee, is there any change to SARs, please?
  9. So here we go again at Abbeywood retail park. For PCN's received through the post [ANPR camera capture] please answer the following questions. 1 Date of the infringement 21/11/2018 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 28/11/2018 3 Date received 30/11/2018 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [y/n?] No, but says ANPR - made under POFA 2012 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Yes, see attachments 6
  10. Hi Between myself and my partner we've had 5 parking notices from a problem with a railway car park. In all cases we have paid a fee using the app but a couple of problems: 1. Due to poor internet connectivity and busy trains we were unable to pay whilst on the train - we got to work to try there but after distractions forgot to pay BUT paid on the day and before we returned to the car. However due to the way the app works it charged the off peak rate and wouldnt allow a backdated payment on that day - we even phoned but they said couldn't be done - but we made sure we paid. Eve
  11. Good afternoon fellow forum users, apologies in advance as I've never posted before and want to give as much info as possible but there is a bit to tell and I don't want to bore you all to death so I'll try to be as brief and concise as possible. Yesterday I received 4 parking notices from a company claiming to be PCS and one penalty parking charge from the London Borough of Newham for a 52m - failing to comply with a prohibition on certain types of motor vehicle contravention. In total the bill is currently standing at almost £500 ( 4 counts of £60 from PCS and £130 from Newha
  12. Can anyone help. In 2016 we received a letter from Park With Ease to say we were being fined for failure to pay for parking at Ferry Meadows in Peterborough. After contacting them to inform them that their letter was outside the 14 day period and therefore not legal the matter was closed. 18 months on on and we are now receiving letters from Equita regarding the matter, telling us we owe an substantially increased amount and will be taken to court etc, drawing our attention to a 2015 case in the Supreme Court. I’ve tried calling but just end up on hold for ever and n
  13. OFCOM have upheld a case against Channel 5 regarding the TV series Can't pay, we'll take it away. This case starts at page 41 of the OFCOM bulletin http://tinyurl.com/ycwlnaev In this case it would appear that although consent was given, OFCOM found that there was no 'Informed Consent' meaning that the complainant had not been given sufficient information to make a concious decision.
  14. Hi Looking for advice. Family members were visiting friends and paid and parked for 24 hours in a SIPs car park. placed the ticket on display several people could of been the driver of the said car, and then left before the 24 hour expiry. Today a a letter has been sent to the household house, from SIP stating the who ever was diving the car didn't pay or display a the ticket. NO notice was placed on the car on their return so this is the first that anybody was aware. infant the section on which they were parked its not even clear if SIPs have any right on this section. However t
  15. This is the second case from the OFCOM bulletin and starts at page 78 http://tinyurl.com/ycwlnaev This case is (in my opinion) more serious than case 1 in that NO consent was obtained. Also it has disclosed that the Body Worn Cameras transmitted live audio/video to the film crew. The BWC were supplied by the production company so all copyright material belonged to Channel 5 rather than DCBL.
  16. Hello everyone Unfortunately, my husband has gone and got himself another PCN. This time it's one that was stuck on his car I haven't seen any photos of the situation yet - I think they will be uploaded tomorrow at the earliest as he only received the PCN today. I was trying to upload the pdf but this website says that I have the incorrect file extension Is anyone able to help me understand what I've done wrong? I tried following the instructions about uploading files. Thanks
  17. Hi guys, I'm new to this forum and I am not sure where to begin but I am a tad confused about a PCN I received on 18/11/18. I found myself at the Peel Centre in Stockport (first time I've ever been there) and there was an A4 sheet of paper over the parking meter that stated it was free parking on a Sunday. I thought to myself top banana and carried on with my shopping, after an hour or so I find this red notice from MyParkingCharge.co.uk plastered on the windscreen of the vehicle in question. I deduced that rather than walking away maybe I should have entered the reg of th
  18. Hi All, I hope someone will be able to help me, as we got ticket and I am refusing to pay it, as we did nothing wrong. Back in May, 5th of May 2018 we went to Willen Lake (this is somewhere where we go at least once per week, this time, for some STUPID reason, we have parked at Napier Willen Lake, North Car park, which is a new carpark and not our usual parking spot. we drove in, went to pay, but seen that at this particular car park we need to pay on our way out, as such. we went to park for just under 3 hours, came back, went to the ticket machine, entered our car registrat
  19. A recent report claims that the costs of alcohol use to the government in England – including the NHS, police, criminal justice and welfare costs – amount to just under £4 billion a year, while tax revenue from alcohol comes to over £10 billion. So for all the deaths, misery and ruined lives they still manage to make a 6 billion pound profit on this drug, no wonder its legal, now if the country wants to get back up on its feet here is an idea. Legalise a far safer and less anti social drug namely cannabis. Allow people to grow cannabis in their own homes so that can they sell
  20. Hi If a party fails to carry out a direction ordered by the judge and Other side has, should I write to the court and advise them? Can the court sanction the other side ( it's not on the smalls claims track)
  21. Hi Please, can you help me? I got into terrible debt many years ago. Abbey tried to repossess my house after a court hearing, but I sold it in time for not much profit. I had loans and credit cards outstanding and I got a CCJ for one of my credit cards who charged me a lot of PPI. It is seven years down the line and my Experian credit score shows clear. What I want to know is, can I reclaim PPI on all my mortgages and loans and credit cards from over the years? I know my CCJ is still enforceable, but this card was the main offender. Thanks
  22. If anyone could help I’d appreciate it, We went to Birmingham to collect a friend and driving down to the 30 minute free wait the car started to jerk and pull the engine management light came on. Which forced us to pull over as was not safe to continue. We clocked their sign saying no stopping to collect or drop off. We never did we in fact stopped for two minutes maximum. Enough time to switch the engine off an start it again. The engine management light stayed on but the car seemed a slight rough but wasnt pulling or jerking. We drove up an down for a while the

  24. I'm doing this on behalf of my other half (she's not on here) and if you have to move feel free Now I don't know the exact history of the account but her brother had a credit card (at least I think it was) Lowell have constantly been on the phone to them telephone harrassment bla bla the usual drill their solicitors (the so called solicitors) sent a letter apparently saying they we're going to go for a CCJ (but not sure if that's just a theratogram) the few other problems the person getting harrassed by them does have special needs (which won't be curable obviously)
  25. I need serious advice please! I bought online a mattress for kids but wrong size, so had to return it at my cost to the seller. I used an online platform http://www.uship.com to advertise for the delivery job. I got a driver quote and paid deposit to uship. The driver came to pick up mattress i received him well, very likeable guy. After a few days, he cut off communication and so i had to approach uship. They tried to get in touch but no response. The whole project cost £300. I have texted him,emailed and phoned in vain. Yesterday, after 3 weeks o
