  1. Hello all. Apologies for yet another UKCPM parking charge question. But I would like specific help if you are able to. I would be very grateful. I went to a place called the vista centre and it took me about 30 mins to pay for parking. I arrived at Vista Point at approximately 14:30 for a 14:45 appointment. The site had a ridiculous payment system (via installing an app or calling an automated number - where the computer didn’t recognise my voice) and caused me to almost miss a Drug and Alcohol test for a new job. Not easy for any
  2. Hi All, Need a little advice as to where i stand and how to proceed. Myself and my partner moved into a new flat in July 2018 where the car park is managed by these clowns. We are one of about 10 who are fortunate enough to have a very big parking space where two cars can be parked back to back. We questioned this in the viewing and was told this was acceptable. The issues with countrywide parking started about a month after we moved in where we got a ticket on one of our cars for being parked incorrectly. This was appealed and of course, lost. It was then appealed to I
  3. Hello all, in January I parked my car in the car park I usually park in which for many years has been 3 hours free parking, unbeknown to me (until I received the parking charge letter) in mid December the time was changed from 3 hours to 1 hour. Where I enter the car park from the road there is the sign stating the terms and conditions but no 1 hour sign, they are dotted around the car park but when I leave the car park I leave via the same entrance and therefore don't see that they have changed the hours. There was and still is no sign anywhere stating that the hours you ca
  4. Hello all. First of all thank you very much for supporting this website. It has given me some hope in what to me appears to be a very dishonest situation. Summary PCN received after stopping for 12 mins at the entrance to a P&D car park in which ALL 4 Spaces were blocked by a wooden pallet each with a notice saying the road was too narrow for parking and emergency access. Details Broadwater Street West in Worthing, West Sussex is a short, narrow L-shaped side street running along the side of Starbucks and to the left behind it and other buildings, giving access to lock-
  5. I parked in a no through road which leads to the entrance to a supermarket car park and a derelict building site, which after many years of standing empty is finally being redeveloped. The road is accessed from a main road, where there are normal road markings and no signs stating that you are entering a private road and there is No Parking or any charge if you do park in it. Shoppers often park in this road for a short time whilst they go the supermarket, even when there are spaces available on the store car park. One day I parked in the road because the supermarket car park was f
  6. Hi, I set up in busniess 5 months ago, in a shopping centre which is privately owned. They have undeground loading bay and parking, the parking spaces are only for those who have it in their lease. I do not. I unload stock every morning, and after a while started to just leave my van there, no problems as it was out the way, and I found the security giards were just handing out the tickjets to anyone who did not have a business in there, no one used it really.. This changed in March when they brought in UKPC, I have since amassed 10+ tickets as I ave been leaving my van there, I have spo
  7. in a rush for a meeting today i parked in what i thought was a bay but on returning to the vehicle a parking charge notice had been attached to my vehicle stating "Not Parked in Allocated Bay" 1 The date of infringement 22/3/2017 2 Have you yet appealed to the parking company yet? N have you received a Notice To Keeper? (NTK) Not yet 5 Who is the parking company? Premier Parking Solutions 6. where exactly [Carpark name and town] did you park? Premier Inn, Southernhay Exeter
  8. My partner parked at a NPS (northern Parking Services) car park a few weeks back and the machine was not working. She could not pay for her parking. Today we got a ticket in the post. They have camera's there and must have automatically sent a ticket out. What are my options? Do I have to pay it?
  9. I received a parking charge dated 21 April 2018, I am just wondering do I really have to pay this and is there anything I can write back to refuted their claim, it seems like a bit of a joke as their is a sign on a gate which has been blocked up by a 2 tonne concrete boulder saying no parking as access is required at all times, or something along those lines... should I take this seriously? Scan attached. Best Wishes Billy
  10. My partners car was stationary in a car park on 06/01/2017. There is a fee payable of 50p for 1 hours parking. The driver of the car went to the machine, realised they didn't have change for it, and returned to the car. The car left. The Reg keeper wasn't driving. When they got back to the car, a plastic envelope with a piece of printed cardboard was inside with the name MyParkingCharge.co.uk on. It has a serial number on it and a date only, hand written. It has no offence date, time, day, location, penalty details, appeal details or registration number of the car. As far
  11. Hi all could someone please advise me on this matter. Today i have received a parking charge notice dated 26/09/17 stating my car was parked for longer than the period allocated and it states i was parked for 8hrs and 50 mins. My wife parks the car in this car park for work and quite clearly remember that on this particular day the machine was not giving out tickets but was accepting money as their was alot of people complaining. She phoned the number on the ticket machine but no answer so left a note in the car explaining the situation and no more was heard until today. No
  12. Hi, I inadvertently parked in a residents bay last Sunday at the Olympic park, unsurprisingly I returned to the car to find a £100/£60 PCN from Gemini Parking Solutions London. What's the collective advice with these people when I don't actually have legitimate grounds to appeal it for other than their notice being just that and not a fine? thanks JM
  13. Having received a parking invoice for parking on private land from UK Parking Management LTD, I failed to respond or appeal. As I am unlucky enough to be subject to another private parking charge , I had confused the two and thought I had appealed but it seems I did not..... ..I have now had a letter from Debt Recovery Plus asking for £160. I called them upon receipt and asked for copies of the original invoice and some other information (such as the address of the parking company - so I could write to them directly). All of my requests were (quite rudely) refused
  14. Hi All, I am in a similar situation to Sean Miller https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?460082-Parking-Charge-from-Vehicle-control-Services-do-I-pay-help-please&p=5158775#post5158775 in that I received a charge notice. On 25/09/18, my car broke down and 02/10/18 I received a parking charge notice in the post for "stopping in a zone where stopping is prohibited". They have CCTV photos of me on the telephone standing beside my car waiting for the Recovery Services to register my breakdown. I had to be towed away and the
  15. Hi, Sorry but this is my first time doing this so bare with me. I work for a catering company in which I load and unload stuff everytime with my own personal car. There is one sign that mentions of a 30 min loading time and there is also a parking sign in the exact same area. On the Parking sign it mentions that you can park up to 1 hour. I have been given a ticket by ParkDirectUK within the period of 10 minutes so this does not make any sense to me. At the time I was loading and unloading taking things to and from the car. I think I have been provided this ticket
  16. Hi, can someone help please. I over stayed the maximum 2 hour parking in Tesco car park (private eye) a few times and now I’ve been sent a charge £250.00 or they will take me to court. Could someone advise me what to do please
  17. Hi, My girlfriend works at Arvato, Swansea. She received a 'Notice to Keeper' dated 10/5/18, claiming she failed to display her permit on 3/5/18. Claiming £100, reduced to £60 if paid within 14 days. She has a permit to park in the area in question (Arvato (103), Sandringham Park, Swansea, SA70EA. She can't recall not displaying it on the day. Normally displays it every day. The photos provided by Millenium don't show the left hand corner of the windscreen, so I'm not sure they are valid evidence? She appealed to Millenium, with photos of her valid pass, but they've

  19. Good morning. Unfortunately, on 03/10/2015 i was issued a Parking Charge Notice by Parking Control Management (UK) Limited for the sum of £60.00 whilst I was parked on a private car park. I had appealed on the grounds that the signs had been vandalised which of course was rejected by PCM and decided to follow it through with another appeal to The Independent Appeals Service and also this was dismissed. I have left it whilst seeking advice but PCM have now referred it over to Debt Recovery Plus Limited who are chasing me for the amount of £160.00 I'm not the best when it com
  20. I am the RK of the vehicle and received a letter with a parking charge. I have had two previous PCN's from a long time ago when the advice was always to ignore, which I did and subsequently heard nothing off a host of 'solicitors' that sent out begging letters. I think I'm right in assuming after reading many threads the situation has changed because of POPLA and the POFA?? situation in 2012 says I now as the RK have to disclose who was driving as said I am the registered keeper. My partner was the driver. She stopped in the above carpark, tells me she paid for a
  21. parkingbill2018, where are you with this case? I've got the same problem on the same location, but mine is on early stage, have only passed to the ZZPS LTD Could you please update when you get a resolution Thanks,
  22. Hi, I parked in a loading bay for what felt like no more than 15 minutes and received a parking ticket. See images attached. I couldn't see any signs that clearly displayed the time allowed or the terms and conditions. Is this legal? Please let me know if you need any information and thank you CAG in advanced!
  23. Hi, please people need your help. Received a letter from Gladstone solicitors. It refers to a parking notice. They said I owe £160 to DRP. To date I have ignored their letters but this is the first one from Gladstone. It mentions the case of Beavis It asked me to make full payment to DRP, if I dont in 14 days, I should keep them updated with address change so I can defend court proceedings. There have only supplied one photo which was taken from the shop assistant of the rear of the vehicle. No times or anything. The signs were very unclear and small. Do I pa
  24. Hi I received a Parking Charge Notice on my windscreen on holiday. We had purchased a ticket and displayed it correctly, but it was displayed backwards on the dashboard. I have a pic of how it was which, along with speaking to the next car, suggests it fell forward with the wind as the door closed. Yes, I know we should have triple checked but getting two young children out of the car and raincoats, bags on a miserable wet day we didn't. we now have a £100 charge notice. I have read on forums to wait for a Notice to Keeper (the parking company is member of IPC not BPA).
  25. Hi, I received a parking ticket for £60 if I pay it in 14 days and £100 if I pay it in 30 days from a PCM (Parking control management), I have a permit however it was on the floor of my car but visible through the windscreen, I still got a ticket, I appealed the ticket and I still have no reply. I got a letter in the post stating I now have to pay £160 because I haven’t paid, however I was waiting for the reply from the appeal I called and apparently if I hadn’t heard in 14 days from the appeal I should of called them and I was made aware that it said this on the bac
