  1. 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 turned it down on 12/6/18. I'm a little worried about that, as I thought we had more time to appeal to the IAS, Reading it now, it appears we only had 21 days, which would be 2 days ago. Thanks in advance, Joe
  2. 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 ticket after entering the reg number in the machine and displayed the ticket on the dashboard. She has used this carpark a few times. we're suprised to get the speculative invoice and hoped for some advice on how to play it Many thanks 1 Date of the infringement....10/4/17 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date]...14/04/17 3 Date received...20/4/17 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012?

PARKING EYE 8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] BRITANNIA ADLPHI, LIVERPOOL sorry I should also have added that on ther back of the letter it says... On April 10th the vehicle entered the car park at 9:58 and left at 11:03 (!hr 05mins) This is 'backed up' by photographic evidence on the front of the letter. I asked the better half if she'd maybe just paid for the hour, because judging by other threads you are allowed a 10 minute overstay as per BPA, but she says she paid for 2 hours
  3. 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 back of the parking ticket, however they claimed to have sent a letter declining the appeal on the 2nd of February which I still haven’t received, I appealed on the 1st of February and the ticket was issued on the 30th of January. What shall I do? Thanks
  4. 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 full. I parked for less than 10 minutes behind a car that was already there and didn’t think anymore of this until I received a PCN in the post from a private parking management company. I was shocked that this stated I had parked in an un-adopted road which was no parking allowed and had a £100 parking charge. The council confirmed the road is un-adopted whilst the site is being developed. The company had taken photos of the car I was driving, which was parked alongside a derelict building in the road. The signs stated Attention Private Land – The site is managed & operated for No Parking at anytime and that there is a parking charge of £100. These signs are not in the line of sight of a car driver and when you leave the car to go to the entrance of the supermarket they are behind you and there are no signs in your line of travel. You might see the signs on your way back to your car, but that is obviously too late. The signs are on the perimeter of the building site, which the derelict building is part of, and they refer to “Land” and “Site”, so you would assume they refer to the building site being developed, and not the road. If the road is included then there should be a sign at the entrance stating this is a Private Road and the terms and conditions that apply, as was in the Supreme Court case Parking Eye Vs Beavis. To make matters worse the signs on the derelict building are not illuminated and are less visible at dusk when I parked and when it is completely dark they cannot be seen at all! I disputed the charge with the management company because there were no signs at the entrance of the road and the ones on the building alongside which I parked had not been visible and referred to the building land/site. This was rejected because the IPS had approved the signs and location of them. I tried to appeal to the Site Owner/Director of the company who are developing the site, but he ignored my letters. His company finally did respond after my Father wrote to them. They confirmed that they had appointed a parking management company to control misuse of their land. I and other shoppers, unaware of that this is a private road with no parking, are hardly misusing the land by parking here for a few minutes! Even Police have been seen parking here and I am aware that at least one unmarked Police car was issued with a PCN. The management company have had many requests from the Supermarket store management and people like me to improve the signage and/or paint double yellow lines, to remove any ambiguity, but they have repeatedly refused. One store manager even complained that an employee of the Management company was parking by the derelict building, adding further to the misleading situation. In fact I am sure it was one of their employees whom was parked in front of me when I was issued with my PCN. It certainly was the same type and colour of car that I have seen driving around checking for parked cars. My Father did a study and saw 13 cars park there in one hour one lunch time, including an armed Police woman! I foolishly tried the IAS appeal process, knowing that I only had a 20% chance of being successful, because it is well known that this is not independent at all. True to form my appeal was rejected, even though I had pointed out and given proof that the evidence given by the management company was incomplete and the site plans and photos showing the signs were over two years old and not what were in place when my alleged parking offence took place. The Arbitrator dismissed these facts and still rejected my appeal and asked me to pay the charge within 14 days. I informed the Parking Management Company that I did not accept the decision of the IAS and the reasons why. I stated that I would not be paying the charge and requested that they followed the correct legal process and take me to court and not waste time and money passing this onto a debt recovery company. My letters, including to the MD were ignored and the charge was increased to £160, to cover admin charges. I heard nothing for four months then out of the blue I received a letter from a Debt Recovery company asking for the £160 to be paid. I have denied the debt, and asked them to ask their client to take me to court, so that this can be decided fairly. Their response states if the account remains unpaid it will progress to the legal stage and be passed to the solicitors. I would welcome further advice to what I have already received. This situation has been very upsetting and stressful for my family and I, especially when I am an honest, law abiding citizen, who has not committed any parking offences before. In the meantime, roll on the passing of the Private Parking Bill!
  5. 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 can park have recently changed which in my opinion is a little unfair I could in theory have checked the signs on Monday and seen 3 hours, parked again on Tuesday without looking and they could have changed it to 1 hour, a bit like entrapment in my opinion. I appealed to POPLA and they rejected my appeal and I have now received a letter from Civil Enforcement demanding payment stating if it isn't received in 28 days they will have no option but to start proceedings against me and will charge for costs, interest and fee's. Do I have a leg to stand on regarding there was no prior advice when entering the car park that the terms had been recently changed or do I just pay up? And just as an aside I now live in Saudi Arabia and would like to write to Civil enforcement requesting they write to me here as I have only seen these letters from pictures my wife has sent from the UK.
  6. 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
  7. Hi, First of all, thank you for the support you all provide through this site. I have received a Parking Charge Notice from CPM (UK Car Park Management) for 'Unauthorised Parking' in a small car park. The bays are unmarked and the signs are barely readable attached high on the walls in small prints. I am the registered keeper but not the driver of the time. The issue date was last year June 17 and was for £100 or reduced to £60 if payed in 14 days. It was sent to me in post with two pictures of my car in the letter. The reason was 'unauthorised parking'. Since then, I received another letter called 'Formal Demand' roughly after 40 days of the first letter where it says to pay £100. Then I started receiving 3 DRP letters (2 in sept and 1 in Oct 17) asking to settle payment of £160. Following that, I received a letter from Gladstone Solicitors in Nov 17 asking me to settle payment of £160 and then another 'Letter before claim' in June 18. Taking advice from other forums, I decided ignore them and I never contacted or reply to any correspondence thinking that they will stop. Now (Sept 2018), I have received a Claim Form from County Court Business Centre, Northampton asking to pay CPM £174.67 + £25 court fee + £50 legal rep fee total of £249.67. I have kept all evidence of letters and pic of the car park including the sign they have up. I need advise on what to do next. I have read different threads and you tube videos and all saying this is fake court. The court logos are blurred out and looks like the letter has been copied. Is this a actual court? The letter contains moneyclaim.gov password. Please can you offer me advise om what to do next? I have 14 days to acknowledge of service then submit my defence. I can upload pics of letters and photos upon request. Please speak to me in layman's term as I don't fully understand the process. Questionnaire: 1 Date of the infringement - 23/06/2017 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] - 10/07/2017 3 Date received 13/07/2017 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [y/n?] - not anywhere in the letter far as I can see 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? - They took two pictures of my car and printed them in the letter 6 Have you appealed? {y/n?] post up your appeal] Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up - I did not respond at all 7 Who is the parking company? CPM 8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] - 93-101 Greenfield Road, London For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. - BPA If you have received any other correspondence, please mention it here - as mentioned above Thank you in advance
  8. 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). From my research I think the right thing to do is: *Wait for Notice to Keeper, which should arrive by day 56 *Appeal, but do not disclose the driver *Appeal with Independent Agency, as AS parking are likely to deny the appeal Have I got this right? I do feel quite anxious waiting when I have the ticket to prove I paid so am I better to appeal now? IT does clearly state on their signs that ticket has to be displayed correctly, but it isn't a sticky ticket so Im guessing this problem has occurred quite often. I have private plates which I need to put back on my car- will this effect the parking companys chance of getting details from DVLA? Many thanks inadvance for all your help Nic
  9. Long story short, I used the car park and then paid before I left however I still received a parking charge notice. Is there anything I can do to appeal this? I have not contacted Horizon Parking as of yet, I haven't appealed either. Below are some info you might need: The parking works by you entering your reg number to a parking metre/display before LEAVING and then paying the amount it states on the screen. I paid the amount it said and then left within 5 minutes of paying. I paid by cash so I don't have bank proof. I don't have any receipts as I accidentally misplaced them. My reg number was correct as I always double check and it tells me the sum on the screen. The entering/leaving time on the letter are correct. I am yet to appeal, the only communication I have received is the letter I have attached to this. Is there anything I can do to win an appeal? Will ignoring them work? I would appreciate any help. Thank you very much. imagetopdf (5) (1).pdf
  10. Hey guys on 19/10/2018 I have parked my motorbike next to the car bay in Olympic Park, the ground was not marked by yellow crossing lines there, while I am pretty sure it was in other places, so I assumed it is not a problem to park there. Received a PCN on that day and waited for NTK which arrived on 21/11/2018. The Parking Charge is 100£ at the moment. If not paid in 29 days, I am informed (threatened) that charge will go up by another 60£ I will try to scan and redact the NTK once I am in the office and will send it here as well Questionnaire: Date of infringement: 19/10/2018 at 13:15 Not appealed to PCN Received NTK: 21/11/2918 The NTK mentions Schedule 4 of Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 Parking Company is Gemini Parking Solutions Location is Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park London
  11. 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 unfairly and I think it is ridiculous, I also spoke to another person who works within the same units me saying that he had also been provided a ticket 7 days ago for the exact same thing. I will provide pictures which I hope will give you a better understanding. If you need anymore information please let me know. Should I pay? Should I ignore it? Should I contest it? Any help would be appreciated. Regards, Ridoftickets

  13. Hi all, can anyone recommend who I should structure a PCN appeal given this situation? One half of the road (where I usually park) had its resident parking suspended temporarily for works, so on Friday I parked on the other end of the road. Having returned to my car for the first time today they have re-opened the usual half and suspended the half I was parked in. Because I hadn't been to my car in 4.5 days I had no idea they had moved the parking suspension. My partner and I are absolutely certain there were no suspension signs where they are now currently - we made a point of looking to check both halves weren't suspended. All they have done is taken down the suspension signs on Friday from the first half, sellotaped a new piece of paper on them and stuck them to posts on the other half of the road (I have a photo to prove it). We live in East London, so we have to park 250m away from the apartment to get a residents bay. We don't check on the car and the availability of the bays daily - that would be nuts. 1. How can I structure an appeal to say that I was parked there before the parking suspension signs were even put up? 2. How much notice does the council have to give its residents before suspending parking? Thanks in advance for any advice and support!
  14. Hello, Me again! I received a charge notice for parking on their clients property for a CHARGE NOTICE from Highview Parking, Bradfield Road Car Park, Sheffield S6 2BW Date: 18.12.18 Time: 19:47 Time left: 22:27 Duration: 2hrs 40 mins I had been for a meal at the Italian restaurant for my managers retirement hence the late time of arrival. The car park was empty and so presumed it would have exceeded the time period with it being unsociable hours. Having spoken with friends and family, I decided to ignore the first letter but have received a second one today to state the charge is now £85 instead of the reduced amount of £50. and if not recieved within 14 days an initial debt recovery charge of £40 will be incurred???? Can I please have advice on what to do next as I don't know how best to go about these sort of things- I do think it is disgusting and the owners should not be allowed to charge these ridiculous amounts. I am concerned that I will get taken to court etc??? Please help?? Many thanks in advance
  15. 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 there was no way that I could have moved my vehicle without assistance. They state that there are signs clearly marking it is a no stopping zone and I should have notified them that i had broken down. I didn't notice any signs, and I certainly didn't see that i had to call any numbers. I was busy worrying about what was happening to my car and making sure I was towed to safety. I passed my test about a year ago and I had never been in this situation so you can imagine I was scared and worried! It has gone through the so called independent appeals service and they have, of course, ruled in their favour. I have written to Watchdog and i was just wondering if anyone had any tips about how i can handle this? On principle I refuse to pay this charge, £100.00 is a hefty price to pay for something I completely disagree with! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks to everyone reading.
  16. Hi My daughter has received a "Speculative Invoice" from Civil Enforcement Ltd. I have seen somewhere about rules for the protection of freedoms act and have sent an email today to the DVLA to see when her details were requested and confirmation of who requested it. Once i get this information where do we go from there? The parking notice does not mention POFA at all. Are they required to mention it?
  17. Hey, chaps, quick one. I received (out of the blue) a letter from Gladstone claiming instruction of legal proceedings against an alleged parking charge. This is the first I've heard about this. They're demanding £160. 1) Luckily, their solicitor letter went to my parents, as I moved address (and updated this back in 2018). 2) Their letter is dated 25 Jan 2019, alleged charge was on 24.02.18 3) Looking at the date, and thinking back to that time, yes, I was 100% parked on their car park. However; - I recall what the event was (local Rugby match) - Parking was in fact paid in full at entry (on match days, they had a parking attendant in a high vis taking payment at entry and handing out 24 hr tickets) - they do also have machines, but this is something they have done for a very long time - Of which, I've paid the front-man and never had a problem. - I had 3 people in the vehicle who also saw full payment. I've contacted ES parking online 15.2.18 (disputing this charge and noting all above)... and as of yet, low and behold, no reply as of yet (I'm now going to send recorded delivery). Obviously, almost 12 months later I'm not going to have the ticket, so I feel I'm being royally stung. Do I have a leg to stand on?

A not very obvious sign parallel to the road saying "No Unauthorised Parking" which looked like they were for the parking bays, but on closer inspection after receiving the ticket say 'no roadway' parking in very small letters. They have photos showing car with a blurry sign in the background on other side of the road, plus a close up photo, taken at an extreme upwards angle (blurry, can't really read what it says - my own photo is much better) Considering whether its worth an appeal or not, any help appreciated. Thanks
  19. 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!
  20. Hello, I've received a notice to keeper today for exceeding the maximum period allowed by 17 minutes. Although I was driving the car, I was not the keeper as it's my fiancé's (so the letter was addressed to her but I won't let suffer for it) My initial reaction was to ignore it but I decided to play it safe and ask for guidance.

  21. Hi, I received a PCN recently and I'm not 100% sure if a ticket was purchased for the time in the car park.

Where exactly [carpark name and town] - Havens Bank Retail Park, Exeter Appeal: I dispute your 'parking charge', as the keeper of the vehicle. I deny any liability or contractual agreement and I will be making a formal complaint about your predatory conduct to your client landowner and to my MP. There will be no admissions as to who was driving and no assumptions can be drawn. Since your PCN is a vague template, I require ALL photos taken and an explanation of the allegation and your evidence, i.e.: - If the allegation concerns a PDT machine, the data supplied in response to this appeal must include the record of payments made - showing partial VRNs - and an explanation of the reason for the PCN, because your Notice does not explain it. - If the allegation involves an alleged overstay of minutes, your evidence must include the actual grace period agreed by the landowner. If you fail to evidence the actual grace period that applies at this site or suggest that only one period applies, this will be disregarded as an attempt to mislead. In the absence of evidence, it will be reasonably taken to be a minimum of twenty minutes (ten on arrival and ten after parking time) in accordance with the official BPA article by Kelvin Reynolds about 'observation periods' on arrival being additional and separate to a 'grace period' at the end. - in all cases, you must include a close up actual photograph of the sign you contend was at the location on the material date. Formal note: Should you later pursue this charge by way of litigation, note that service of any legal documents by email is expressly disallowed and you are not entitled to assume that the data in this dispute/appeal remains the current address for service in the future. Yours faithfully,
  22. Hello, I had exactly the same problem. Parked at Southgate Park Stansted, went to McDonalds then got a parking charge letter. I stupidly appealed it and therefore revealed myself as the driver, and the appeal was of course rejected. However the PCN letter came well after 2 weeks from when I parked there. Is this good grounds to appeal to POPLA? Hello, I've been issued with a parking charge notice by MET for parking at Southgate Park Stansted. The parking bays looked like they were there for the adjacent restaurants (McDonalds and Starbucks) I went to McDonalds, left after 12 minutes, 26 days later got a parking charge letter. Apparently I was not allowed to leave the car park on foot while I was parking there, and because I strayed more than 50 feet from the car I must now pay the charge. No obvious signs stating this, not something I would ever expect. I stupidly appealed it and therefore revealed myself as the driver, and the appeal was of course rejected. However the PCN letter came well after 2 weeks from when I parked there. Is this good grounds to appeal to POPLA.
  23. Good morning, I hope that you are able to assist with a parking charge issue notice that I believe has been unfairly issued. Apparently the reason for issue is that the driver left the premises (Code SPC) in that they walked 50 feet to a McDonalds on the same site.

  25. Hi, I entered the Damside Street Car Park in Lancaster on 09/09 2018 at 11:57:47 with a 5 years old daughter in distress. While my partner took care of her I had to go around to find a place where to change money because I didn't have enough loose change to pay for a parking ticket at the ticket machine. Therefore I bought a parking ticket valid for 1 hour at 12:10 (just over two minutes after the 10 minute grace period finished). I left the car park at 12:13:02. In total, I stayed there for less than 16 minutes but purchased a ticket allowing me to stay for 1 hour (plus the 10 minutes grace period). A few days later I received a Parking Charge for £125. I tried to appeal with the HX Car Management and with the Independent Appeal Service but with no success. A few days ago, I received a Letter Before Claim from Gladstones solicitors threatening with a legal action if I don't pay £160. I'm not sure what to do. Shall I pay or shall I go to the court? Do I have any chance in the court with no legal experience? Thank you for your help Miroslav
