  1. 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-up garages and waste bins. It has 4 parking spaces nose to tail running from the entrance of the road. My passenger had a painful case of cystitis and needed to use the loo. Thankfully we saw a Starbucks and from the main road it looked like there were parking spaces free in the side street next to it. After turning into the street and letting my passenger out, I saw that each of the parking bays had a wooden pallet in them preventing their use. In addition there was a sheet of paper on the wall to the side of each space saying that access was required at all times in case of emergency, bin collection and deliveries and that the road is too narrow for parking cars and through traffic. This is certainly the case. Having entered this narrow street the only way out was too drive to the end of the L where there is just enough space to turn around and then drive back to the entrance. Unable to park I waited just short of the main road for my passenger to return. Although I had fully intended to pay, with it not being physically possible to park let alone legal, the whole place gave the appearance that parking was at least suspended if not cancelled. Hence it never crossed my mind that I would be penalised for stopping there. There is of course no one supervising to tell you. My passenger could have just run in to Starbucks, used the toilet and run out but being polite she chose to buy some tea. We had just left the vet after having spent an hour talking to one of their very kind nurses about the loss of our dog which has been heartbreaking. It was a very emotional time and with the cystitis as well I couldn't drive off and leave them; stopped by the entrance I could at least clear the road if for example an emergency vehicle required access. They returned after approx 10 mins and we left. What Happened PCN received for "Failing to Park Within a Marked Bay". Given the situation described above where I was physically unable to park in a marked bay, let alone do so without blocking emergency access I thought it was a [problem] and a quite ludicrous one at that. And for this reason I have not contacted One Parking Solutions. I have since received a letter from ZZPS Limited saying my unpaid PCN has been passed to them to resolve. The balance owed has now increased to £170. They have quoted Parking Eye v Beavis as a recent Supreme Court Ruling. I have spoken to them and they said I was parked for 12 mins. If I do nothing the matter will be passed to their solicitors.
  2. Hi guys, I have just received attached PCN . It was not me who was driving the car, but my partner on said date. The place of PCN is Fox restaurant, she was the customer at the said restaurant at that time. Can someone please advise if we should pay for this said charge? She did not see the signs around, however I am able to take some pictures if need be. Look forward to hearing back. Thanks 7.12.18.pdf
  3. Hi, (I hope i am posting this in the correct space and apologies to admins if im not) I appreciate any help this forum/users can offer in advance. I live in a new development (I rent been here for 4/5 years), I have an allocated space as per my tenancy agreement. Recently (September) the management company introduced a new scheme by appointmenting P&P Management Ltd to regulate the parking of our development. However the problem here is, instead of regulating the cars that park outside of bays (they don't have the legal right because the road is owned by the council) they now ticket cars in the private bays that don't display a permit issued by P&P Management Ltd. We received a letter informing us that unless we send back the display permit and send an email to opt out we would be accepting any rules set by P&P. Like most, work, life etc got in the way and i forgot to send back the permit and write an email. Low and behold i eventually received a ticket. I explained that I posted the permit back (must of got lost in the post....) and explained I didnt realise had to email as well. Nevertheless i also explained that I didnt give the management company nor the P&P to regulate my space, neither did my landlady. I followed their appeals process and they have written back to say in short, I owe them £60 going up to £100 if its not paid by a certain date. Ultimately what im trying to understand is can they chase me, if they can what are the chance of the courts finding this case in their favour. I've read that a Penalty Charge Notice is different from a Parking Charge Notice (Which is what they issued me with). I'm happy to tell them with a few choice words where they can go and see them in court, but I also want to know if its worth just suffering the £60 and them now understanding and knowing I no longer participate in the scheme (not that I did anyways) and the situation being done with. Appreciate this is long winded but thanks again in advance for your help.
  4. hi, i have received a pcn/ntk stating driver overstayed by 25mins. appeal sent stating letter received late. parking company- vehicle control services ltd (member of IPC) no ticket , letter /PCN/ NTK received through post - issued 11/01/19, received on 15/01/19 appeal emailed to them and they have replied and given me options, either give driver details, appeal on behalf of driver with their permissoin or pay reduced fine, dont really want to pay them, or give them driver details, there was no ticket left on windscreen, and i received letter on 15 jan. which is over the 2 working days they allocate for receipt , however, i cannot prove this as the envelope is not dated., and they state that the onus is on customer to prove late receipt. i have looked at a previous case about berkely precinct on this forum , where the claimant from wales fought the case for over a year, but unfortunately , lost at court. i would be grateful if any members could advise me whether its worth taking this further or shall i just pay and rid myself of stress. this is the reply i received after appealing We refer to correspondence received from you concerning the above numbered Charge Notice.You state that our Notice is not compliant with the Protection Of Freedoms Act 2012 on the Notice issued to you; however we have not cited POFA 2012 nor stated that you are liable for the Charge as the vehicle keeper].

  5. 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
  6. Sorry if this has been covered. CHAMBERLAIN BUILDINGS. Driver received Claim Form. Claimant EURO etc... Address for documents: GLADSTONES etc... Top right hand page: COUNTY COURT NORTHANTS etc .. This will be defended but firstly who should I respond to, if anybody? Parked for less than 5 minutes outside of bay(no ticket required) Insufficient time to read signage detailing 'contract' Operative had no id or uniform and proceeded to take a couple of pics of vehicle. Unsure who he was initially. Then POC £100 for PCN; £60 Contractual costs and then statutory interest . Grateful for any advice please.
  7. Hi, I wonder if you could give me some advice about a PCN I have received today. Having seen one of your previous responses I have answered the same questions in order to assist below: For PCN's received through the post [ANPR camera capture] please answer the following questions. 1 Date of the infringement 30/12/2018 @ 13:59 (Letter calls this contravention date) 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] Issue Date 15/1/2019 (it says 'posted' ? in brackets at the side of issue date) 3 Date received 17/1/2018 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [y/n?] No I cannot see this on the PCN 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Yes 6 Have you appealed? {y/n?] post up your appeal] NO I have not appealed at this stage. Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up 7 Who is the parking company? Vehicle Control Services, VCS. (I think the address is 2 Europa Court, Sheffield Business Park, Sheffield S9 1XE 8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] Berkeley Centre, Sheffield, S11 8PN For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. It says on this PCN that any appeals would be handled by the IAS There are two official bodies, the BPA and the IAS. If you are unsure, please check HERE- BPA If you have received any other correspondence, please mention it here I have not received any other information but the letter does say that if payment is recieved within 14 days then I could pay £60 instead of th £100 they intend to charge. The letter also says that if I want to appeal I must do so within 14 days. I am not sure whether or not I have any sort of recourse here, it would be great if you could please give me some advice. Many Thanks, John.
  8. Hi there i have a letter before action from Gladstones Solicitors regarding a PCN, which happened 16th October 2017 outside a sandwich shop, this was the only parking spot available and i was having dizzy spells and needed to eat. When i came out of the sandwich shop and noticed someone taking pics of my vehicle, i approached them to explain the situation but they simply ignored me. The parking restrictions were not clearly displayed. They have given me 30 days to respond from the date of the letter - 15th November 2018 and the 30 days fall on Saturday 15th December 2018. I would really appreciate some advice on this as a matter of urgency. Thanks in advance, Roland
  9. Hello, I would be grateful for some support on a PCN issued by Norwich Traffic Control on 2017. The car park is also for a DR's surgery that I was attending. I parked my car in a car park that was being enforced by NTC on 12/05/17 The entrance for the car park is only wide enough for one car so if you are maneuvering to allow another car to pass, you are not able to read the signs as you enter the car park. Upon parking my car, I went over to the pay and display machine to see if there was anything reading the Dr's surgery, there wasnt, just the usual generic sign. I then went into the Dr's surgery to ask them about the pay and display. They informed me that there were allocated parking spaces and the sign detailing this was only at the entrance for the car park. They also said that I wasnt the only person not to see the signs. I went back out side to move my car however I was met by a NTC Warden who had already issued a parking ticket. I had been away from the car for 1 minute. I explained to the NTC warden and the fact they must have seen me go into the Dr's.... I was informed that it wasnt her problem. Later that day I emailed NTC and explained the situation, they informed me that ticket was still valid. I appealed via the IAS and highlighted that i believed NTC had not complied with the Code of Practice for the IPC as follows; IPC Code of Practice Part B, Clause 2 – Signage Clause 13 – Professionalism Clause 14 – Predatory Tactics Clause 15 – Grace Periods BPA Code of Practice Clause 9 – Professionalism Clause 12 – Requesting registered keeper details Clause 13 – Grace Period The IAS dismissed the apoeal by stating the following; "Whilst having some sympathy with the Appellant, once liability has been established, only the Operator has the discretion to vary or cancel the parking charge based on mitigating circumstances. For the reasons given, the appeal is dismissed." I have today received a County Court Claim from NTC's solicitors claiming £246.06 for the parking ticket. I still believe that NTX did not comply with the Code of Practice for all of the reasons detailed above however I would be grateful for anyone's assistance with this. NTC are notorious for things like this and there are numerous complaints about their methods of operation. Photos.pdf
  10. 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 and as evidence they just show that the car entered and left the car park. That is only evidence that the car parked there, not that it wasn't paid for. As we don't have the ticket anymore we can't tell when the ticket was issued or whether the registration number was entered correctly (always a change of typing it wrong). In my opinion they would need to prove that you didn't pay. So they would need to show an audit trail of tickets issued during the period and list which tickets that were issued do not match any cars that entered the car park. If e.g. 1000 cars parked during the day and 1000 tickets were issued they can't really claim that someone did not pay. The Levenshtein distance (how many letters you need to change to go from one string to another, E.g. Hello to Hillo would be a distance of 1 as you have to change one letter) between the reg numbers entered on the ticket machine and the reg numbers of the ANPR system would show straight away if some reg number had a typo. If a type was the cause for this PCN then another question is if the system knows at any time which cars are in the car park, why does the parking ticket machine not reject numbers that are not in the car park? So what is the best way forward. I've read that you should not appeal. Why? I fully understand that they will reject the appeal as this is their business model but can't you use the appeal to put them on notice already? I am not a lawyer but I would request the following: -Proof that the parking charge was not payed -Ask them to reserve the CCTV footage (if they have) of the ticket machine for future use in the court of law as that would show my wife making the payment (making clear that you won't be bullied) -Provide a list of tickets issued during the period which do not match any of the numbers of the ANPR system and their Levenshtein to our registration number. -Audit trail of the ticket machines. Are there any gaps in the ticket issued? My wife has her father as a witness that she paid and there she helped an elderly couple at the ticket machine (but we don't know them). So what do you suggest we do? Wait until they write they are going to court? What would the worst case be, it goes to court and you have to pay. How much would that be? I know that that is what they bank on that people are scared of going to court and lose especially now that they won a few (or at least one) cases in court. PCN attached Signs (thanks to User999 for getting all those pictures) One of the signs is saying: "Please ensure you enter the full and correct vehicle registration number of the vehicle you've parked today. Failure to do so may result in the issue of a Parking Charge Notice (PCN)"
  11. 1 Date of the infringement: 03/01/2019 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 24/01/2019 3 Date received: 25/01/2019 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [Y/N?] No 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Yes 6 Have you appealed? [Y/N?] post up your appeal] Yes Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up Yes 7 Who is the parking company? NCP 8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] Portland St East, Cheltenham For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under? BPA I paid for parking at this car park, stupidly when asked, I input 'No' to a receipt. After my cash was taken, the machine didn't print out a windscreen ticket. I also checked to see if my coins were returned, but they were not. So I have no evidence to show that I paid for parking. I realise now that perhaps I shouldn't have, but in my appeal I stated that: I was the driver, and that the machine was not printing on the day of my incident. I asked NCP to provide evidence that the machine was working properly, and to provide parking records during the time/day of the incident. My appeal was rejected, with them stating that they have checked that the machine was working and that they have no record of payment for my vehicle. However there was no evidence sent to me. They have asked for payment within 28 days again. In this car park there is more than one machine, and I do know that the other payment machine was working on that day, as I saw another driver walk away with a printed windscreen ticket after paying. I did think at the time that it was a bit odd that I hadn't got one. Since I have no proof that I paid, should I ignore or is there any hope to appeal to POPLA? Will they be able to help? I feel like I shouldn't pay the charge just on principle because I know that I paid on the day. Any help please!
  12. Hi, I'm looking for some advice on a PCN that was issued last year 07/09/2017 for parking at Croydon Poplar Walk car park. I did park there on the 7th September, and didn't make the payment as I think my phone had issues (or I forgot) and called up the number the next day when I remembered on the PaybyPhone site/board to ask how I can pay for the previous day as when I checked the website I couldn't find any other contact number. The operator told me she couldn't help me as there was no mechanism to make a back dated payment. I've parked in the same car park multiple times and always made the payment. When the first letter came, I remember vaguely I called to say I tried to make the payment the next day, but they wouldn't have any of it, and said the notice in the car park says clearly that the payment needs to be made within 30 minutes of parking. I tried appealing on the call saying I had tried to make the payment the next day and explained I'm more than happy to pay the parking fee with an appropriate interest for it but the fine of £60.00 seems a bit steep, but they didn't budge. I tried to search up the actual legal owners of the car park, but couldn't find any details for them. Subsequently, I got a few letters from Civil Enforcement where the money owed kept going up, but after trolling through a few sites which recommended ignoring these letters, that's what I did. Then I got a few letters from ZZPS which had threatening tones (and amount kept increasing, all of which I threw away) and then got a couple of letters from QDR solicitors, the last one dated 25/5/2018 threatening stated they would obtain a CCJ, which I kept. I didn't do anything, as after looking up similar letters the general advice seemed to be to ignore them. Last week I got a Claim form from County Court Business Centre, Northampton dated 11/10/2018 which looks very legitimate as it has the county court stamp (albeit a bit faint). The amount now states £331.59!! Feel like I should've just paid the £60.00 last year. It seems a bit unjust that a £5.00 parking fee should end up having such a huge fine!! What should I do? Any help will be greatly appreciated. I've attached the first page of the claim form (it has 4 pages in total with page 2 being a 'Response Pack', page 3 is "Admission (specified amount)" - lots of sub-sections and is double sided ending with a declaration. Page 4 is "Defence and Counterclaim (specified amount)" - also double sided with lots of sections. I've also attached a scanned copy of the letter from QDR solicitors. Please help me.. feeling very anxious now! Kind regards Al
  13. Hi this is myfirst post This is a verysimilar situation to another on this site from mechsman on 4/10/17 so I assume a lot ofthe advice there will apply to me. I have not received a Notice to Keeper and this notification letter(attached) is the first I have heard of it. Details in redas per other posts: For PNC's received through the post [ANPR camera capture] please answerthe following questions. 1 Date of theinfringement >Allegedly22 December 2018 2 Date on theNTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] > No NTK received; this is thenotification letter and dated 28 January 2019 3 Date received >29January 2019 4 Does the NTKmention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012?

Where exactly[carpark name and town] Bristol Abbeywood For eitheroption, does it say which appeals body they operate under. > It says there is no chance toappeal as it is beyond the 21 day period. I never received the NTK they claimwas sent. It mentions the IPC under complaints section. There are twoofficial bodies, the BPA and the IAS. If you are unsure, >please check HERE If you havereceived any other correspondence, please mention it here: None I am minded towrite and complain that I have not had the original NTK so: hadno chance to pay at a reduced amount. Donot know the time of entry so unsure if/how long the time period was exceeded Wasnot the driver (my wife was) They are sayingpayment is due 14 days of this notice, so 11 February which doesn't give memuch time to talk to them (no email address so only phone or letter). The previousexample with this company advice was do not respond and they will give up. Thisseems to have been the case and he had stopped getting letters 7 months lateralthough no further updates since to know whether this is still the case. I would appreciate advice on what to do please. Many thanks. Apologises for the font/spacing. I tried posting a couple of times and it got rejected so I copied a post in from Word rather than type all again and the formatting has gone astray. UKCPS 28Jan2019 redacted_Redacted.pdf

Alcock Crescent (Vickers Green Estate), Crayford, DA1 4LX Ticket says they operate under BPA ……………………….. Hi received a windscreen ticket from UKPC for parking on the road. In a residential estate, but on a road, not a car park. No markings, yellow lines on the road and wasn't blocking anyone or any entrances. 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
  15. 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 comes to this sort of stuff, and hope someone would be able to advise me further about the whole situation and where I stand. I have linked in an album as there are too many images to display on here of my PCN, Evidence and also the appeal that i submitted to TheIAS which can be viewed here: http://imgur.com/a/Eld1V Any help would be greatly appreciated as I do not want to pay these people a penny as they do not deserve it.
  16. Hi there, I’m hoping someone may be Able to point me in the right direction. My son received 3 parking tickets last year from Brittania parking. He has ignored all correspondence from them. Today he has received a letter from bw legal which states they have been instructed by Britannia parking Ltd to commence legal action. The total they are claiming us £575.37 I believe the car park is one which takes pics on way in and out. The letter is giving me the options to : agree he owes the debt owes some of the debt but not all of it doesn’t know whether he owes the debt disutes the debt. then it’s for income and expenditure forms with it. I do do not believe he has just deliberately ignored the letters. My son had a stroke last year (his 20) which has left him on a lot of medication and problems. I am his appointee now for dwp as he isn’t able to manage. I just wanted to know if anyway could give me some advice or point me in the right direction. Many thanks for your time.
  17. 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
  18. Hi Guys, posting for a friend who needs more than my advice to be reassured what to do, she is on the verge of paying these people! Windscreen ticket in a marked bay for council flats, marked bay was allocated to the resident who was in the car, google nosey neighbour doesn't show the flat's car park as it's gated. The driver was giving the resident a lift home with a baby and helped them into the flat and came out to a PCN, there doesn't seem to be a 'from' and 'to' parking time and the driver says she was only there long enough to drop the baby and shopping off and come out, so possibly over 10 minutes. I have scans of the NTD and NTK in a word document with pictures of the car in the bay and the signage which is too high to see from a car, but I cannot make them into a PDF as I do not have the software or the know how and my PC is on it's last legs so I can't download any new programs. Happy to PM the word doc to anyone willing to help, but it's not redacted either so I will trust you! I suggested doing an appeal that the driver was parked in a marked bay allocated to the resident with the resident's permission which trumps any agreement they may think they have. Advice please guys? 1 Date of the infringement: 01/11/2018 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date]: posting date 03/12/2018 notice date 05/12/2018 3 Date received : 05/12/2018 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [y/n?] Y 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event?: yes - photos on www.paymypcn-uk.co.uk 6 Have you appealed? no - need some advice from you guys 7 Who is the parking company?: Parking Control Management (UK) Ltd, SL1 2XF 8. Where exactly?: Capstan Drive RM13 Google maps doesn't show the car park for the flats, car was parked in allocated bay for the flat it was visiting I managed to find someone under the age of 30 to do the PDF conversion on their laptop, please see attached for all the NTD, NTK and other info PCN info for CAG 01_11_2018_01.pdf
  19. Just received a NTK from these chancers for allegedly Stopping in a Zone where stopping is prohibited. It was near Scun thorpe Football Club. I certainly didnt see any signs highlighting this. I have read numerous posts on here about ignoring however, I dont want any negative marks on my credit file. Any guidance would be appreciated.
  20. 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
  21. Had several letters from NCP, ignored as usual, then had several from JW Legal and did the same. Now had a letter pack from Nothampton count court business centre looks offical with photo copied stamps etc, but doing some research found this to be a fake county court any advice would be welcome do I put my defence in as requested because there is no way Im paying this . Thanks in advance
  22. Hi Guys need a bit of advice please. I got a Penalty Charge Notice the other day from Wirral Council, I popped onto the website to pay but couldn't get the page to accept my details, thats when i notice that they have put the wrong VRN on the PCN. my Reg is DB12*** they have put DB18*** Looking at the VRN they have put on the ticket it doesn't exist with DVLA When i put the wrong VRN details into the Wirral Parking website i can see that they have a picture of the correct VRN but the picture is just a close up of the VRN and doesn't show the vehicle illegally parked. whats my best way round this?? I was going to log on and dispute the PCN under the grounds of the wrong VRN that is on the PCN within the first 14 days and get the inevitable ball rolling?? or is it best to do nothing for now and wait for them to make the next move? Eagerly waiting your reply's Cheers Steve
  23. 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!
  24. I'm livid - today we have received a £100!!!!! 'charge' for parking 'longer than the maximum period permitted' (which is 60mins) on the 9th Feb 2019. We went to see an evening performance at Theatre Deli and parked in the carpark directly outside the theatre, which is on a small retail park (it used to be a carpet shop). A theatre performance is obviously going to last more than an hour, and as there were no pay machines we presumed it was free to park (especially on an evening). The notice is dated 21.2.19, the envelope does not have a post mark. The PCN is from VCS Ltd who are members of IPC. Happy to provide more info if needed. Please help me sort this as quickly and easily as possible.
  25. Good evening Guys Please see attached pcn I received couple of hours ago. I think it's unfair because it was momentary stop to pick up stuff from a friend. Any advise on how to challenge this would be massively appreciated. Thanks
