  1. Just a brief overview.. I received a PCN from ES Parking Enforcement about 10 days ago. I attempted to make the payment a couple of days ago now, both by calling the number provided and on their website. It is saying that the number I have entered isn't recognised. They don't seem to make it easy to contact them, as they provide no email address (just an online form, which stated for business correspondence only. . and directs you elsewhere if you want to dispute the ticket - IAS? - but I don't want to appeal it I want the correct reference number!) I do
  2. I received a Charge Notice from CP Plus yesterday for parking in the Stirling MOTO Services (just off the M9) for 7 hours and 39 minutes. It advises that you are only allowed to park for 2 hours free of charge before parking charges apply which you are supposed pay for by phone on the day. The charge is for £100 however if I pay within 14 days they will accept £60 (how generous). Also it advises if payment is not received within 28 days an initial debt collection charge of £40 will be incurred. Unfortunately I didn't see any signs advising of this otherwise I wouldn't have parked ther
  3. Bailiff has called at door - TE7 to submit immediately - its Friday night and I am worried - advice please I am completely new to posting on a forum and somewhat stressed - I shall try and be as succinct as possible and would ask for the Site's parking fine guru's to reply before Monday am. In essence: Thank you for reading : *Nov 13 - 'free' Xmas shopping parking day announced by local borough council As a local resident I inadvertently parked for a few mins., in an area not included. *Apcoa issued penalty - £35 pay now or £70 in full *... sent a £35 cheque which was r
  4. Following advice from the forum from a few years ago I sent the recommended letter (template provided)to Gartnavel Hospital and copied in CP parking. I have heard nothing from the hospital but continue to receive increasingly threatening letters from CP. They say they have forwarded my case to Debt Recovery Plus who have written " if the amount is not paid by the date shown (24/07/2014),or if a payment pan has not been entered into by that date, we will recommend that court action be taken to recover the outstanding balance," Losing my nerve. Can take t
  5. Hi ,I have been looking at other posts and I am unsure what to do. On Friday I parked at Orpington Station car park and paid £6 in advance online for my parking ticket. It said my number plate will automatically be picked up but to be sure i printed out my receipt to leave on the dashboard. I returned to my car that evening to find a parking ticket! I asked the man in the station and he told me that they have special 'sections' that you have to park in before 9.30am. However throughout the whole online booking process i was not told this and the worked
  6. hi all, firstly im new to this so please bear with me. I received a Parking Charge Notice in Exeter from Premier Park. I bought a valid ticket and it for one thing or another blew upside down. I appealed the decision and it got rejected (from reading other posts this seems to be the norm). One error i seem to have made is that i put my name and address on the letter and said it was my car. I didnt say i was the driver. Do you have any advice. Should i appeal to POPLA or is this a waste of time. Do i ignore it? I have seen this mentioned a lot but these posts are a few
  7. I was parked in my boyfriends allocated parking space in newton abbot, but recently without me knowing Premier Parking Solutions had put up signs and you had to display a permit, my boyfriend didn't tell me until I got issued with a charge of £75 if you pay within 7 days or £100, I appealed and sent in a photocopy of the permit but they said I had breached the conditions of the notice and still had to pay the charge. I'm a student and really cant afford to pay it and my boyfriend is on minimum wage and cant afford to pay it either. It says on their website that they en
  8. Morning all I have been brought to the forum as a result of an unwanted and unnerving visit from TASK Enforcement to enforce a warrant for a debt of £202. This was as a result of an unpaid parking fine from Lambeth Council The car belongs to my sister but I was driving at the time. i made unsuccessful appeals to the council and then missed a deadline when replying to the courts who had increased the amount to the £202 it now stands at. Mt sister no longer lives with us but the bailiffs insisted the would seize goods unless receipts could be provided proving ownership. To the bes
  9. I'm new to the site but just came across and need some advice. I'm one thats usually very good with finances so this is all new and scary to me. Anyway, about 3 months ago I received a parking ticket, I didn't pay it as I was disputing it due to it being a bank holiday. The rejected my claim but stated I could dispute again, however, due to new job and finishing uni (excuses) I just kept putting it off. The original fine was around £70 and then went to £112. Anyway still putting it off I received a letter from Equita. I barely read it and stuffed it in a draw to deal with the ne
  10. My wife parked in the Priory Fields Retail Park in Taunton which is isolated from the town centre. She spent 3 hours 26 minutes shopping only at that retail centre and had not realised there was a limit of 3 hours. I find it highly unlikely that this would stand up in court as we can prove by receipts that she never left the retail park. ParkingEye have clearly been employed to catch out people who just use the car park. My wife is considering writing a letter of appeal to them but I feel that we should write and tell them that we will not be paying as we can prove she
  11. Hi I was wondering if someone could give me some advice on my problem...I received 2 parking tickets within a week of each other about a year ago I am unemployed due to the fact Im mentally disabled I have Bipolar and ADHD anyway I couldnt afford to pay either of them and because Ive been very unwell this last year I will admit I have just tried to forget them as it was all too stressful. Anyway I have been receiving Letters from Equita but they are addressed to the wrong surname I think this is because an error was made on my registration documents a long time ago...I have re registered th
  12. Hello, A few months ago I visited this forum as I (well my wife did as she was driving the car) received a parking notice through the post. I took the advice of the forum and basically ignored the letters. Then I basically stuck my head in the ground! It has now got to the stage that another company have got involved which are demanding £178.13, the company is Newlyn. To say I am worried not is an understatement as they are saying in their 2nd letter about going to County Court and (in bold) stating 'Considerable further cost to you'. Are they allowed to do this? The cheek of
  13. Please advise! Hi all... Worcester council Parking ticket was issued which i didnt want to pay (less than a third of my car over hanging double yellows in my dead end street) and the ticket went from £35-£110. This then went to Bristow & Sutor who sent letters... i think. At the time i had no income and didnt open my mail as i had lots of debt with other creditors. I am now on tax credits (£50 a week) which is my only income as my business is not making a profit yet. The fee's went to £320 in no time as a ballift left a letter at the door one morning at which time i mad
  14. At this moment in time I am not 100% sure but I think my brother was driving the vehicle at the time which is owned by me, the 'contravention' occurred on 26/11/10, it is now 15/01/11 they "ticket" was issued one day earlier. The letter I have received from "PMSL PARKING" which is a joke in its self.. states I have received this ticket as a road "Legra Avenue" in Hoddesdon was "accessed" by my vehicle they also state that numerous signs and posters were placed there notifying the driver of the consequences, however after checking myself on Google maps street view I can see the makeshift signs
  15. I recently received a parking ticket for parking in a red route bay outside my house in south east London. However, I am convinced that when I parked my car there it was not inside the red route bay. In other words, I believe that the bay has been extended around my car while it was parked there. Looking on the road, there is a clearly visible line where the bay used to go up to. I'm very conscious of this are as it's right outside my house. I challenged the ticket on this basis (firstly, that the car was not in a red route bay when I parked it there; secondly, that as a resident
  16. @font-face { font-family: "Cambria"; }p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal { margin: 0cm 0cm 10pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }div.Section1 { page: Section1; } Yesterday I received a parking charge notice from UKPC in a cinema car park. I have paid for 2hrs parking and on my return, to my horror I have seen the ticket on my winscreen. There was no upright plate to indicate that it was a dissabled bay and only when I have moved my car I have noticed not very clear sign painted on the ground. When i parked it was dark and wet and I honestly not noticed it and coul
  17. Hi all, I came across this site via an online search and thought you might be able to help me. I've just received today a letter from Waitrose in Brentford prompting me to pay a fine of £70 for parkign there last week. Apparently I had over-stayed at their carpark by an hour. Now when parking there I was under the impression that the carpark was free as there were no obvious signs notifying me of the 2 hour parking limit. I hardly feel that paying this fine is fair at all and only just realised I over-stayed because of the letter (I haven't had a chance to read the letter becau
  18. I have just received a PCN for “62- Parked with one or more wheels on or over a footpath or any part of a road other than a carriageway”. The parking signs on the road actually said it was ok to park on the footpath but only in marked bays. I parked on the road but not in the marked bays. Unfortunately I didn’t see the latter bit as other roads adjacent to the road didn’t have the “only in marked bays” bit. I wasn’t parked on a yellow line or anything, neither was I causing an obstruction, I would have caused one if I hadn’t parked on the footpath like other cars as it is a very tiny roa
