About Me


  1. Hi all, I have recently moved to the Winterthur Way development in Basingstoke. I rent a property which includes a parking space. It wasn't until I moved into the flat that I was given a parking permit and told to use it when parking in my allocated space (This was something that was not mentioned in my tenancy agreement!). After moving in I received 2 x £60 parking charge notices for using visitors spaces (Returning within a 48 hour period) to drop off my furniture. I used the visitors space as I had to use a different car of a suitable size to drop the furniture off.
  2. My partner's residential permit expired two weeks prior to getting a ticket 19R. They did send a reminder to her previous address-also within the borough. However not only had she already changed her driving licence, registered her new address for Council Tax and applied for and and now possesses a blue Disabled badge. She is obviously at fault at missing the payment date. However they know she has lived at the new address since the last week of August because of Council tax and later her application for a disabled badge. One would have thought that the Council should have wor

  4. Hi there, can someone please give me some advice, I test drive cars as part of my job, I recently did a test drive for Kia in Marlow and Henley-on-Thames in Buckinghamshire. I am from the north so pick up my first car drive out of the Danesfield House Hotel car park turned left following the sat nav directions. I went to put the radio on and knocked the sat nav off I carried on driving on the main road until I came to Henley on Thames and panicking not knowing where I was I tried to find somewhere to pull over to fix the sat nav. I ended up going into a loop and r
  5. I recently found a PCN attached to my windscreen from UKPC even though I was displaying a permit. The PCN stated that I was not displaying a valid permit, although the out of focus pictures taken by them, and displayed on their site, show the permit on my dashboard. I have appealed the PCN and asked that they stop harassing me, as this is the second time I have had a ticket whilst displaying a permit. What I find frustrating is that rather than cancel the first PCN, they simply waited 2 months for it to expire, and my guess is this one will probably go the same way.
  6. Hi first time poster after advice and assurance ! My daughter is a student in Derby and moved into a rented city centre flat in July 2016. There are no parking spaces allocated to the flats but the roads around the area state they are 'pay at machine' or 'permit holders'. She visited the local authority with her tenancy agreement and proof of car ownership and was issued a residents permit, which she was charged for, valid until July 2017. She has parked regularly in these streets without problems 19th Jan 2017 when she received a PCN. She then received
  7. Hi, Ive just got a parking ticket on monday night outside my mates flat, i was parked in his bay as he doesn't drive, he doesn't even know if you need a permit or not, Im guessing you do seen as I got a ticket and it says without valid permit, parked there loads of time aswell over the years, had no idea Is there any grounds to not pay or tell them to contact him over this issue, if he doesn't tell me how am i suppose to know The other point that that may be better grounds for appeal is that they ve got the wrong location on the PCM, it says Ravensworth court, I was at Palatine place,
  8. Hi Guys, Really hoping someone can help me with this as have read several forums now and I'm really confused/worried on what I should do next. I'll give an overview of what's happened and have also answered the questions suggested in other threads below.. .if someone could please help me with this I'd be really grateful: A few weeks ago on 2nd June I parked on what I thought was a side street, there were double yellow lines on the main road and the double yellow lines stopped at the entrance of the side street. There was an office on the left to where I parked
  9. Hello all, A friend has referred me to this website as I've got an issue with a PCM parking fine. We have a car park that requires permits to be displayed last week my car was issued with a parking fine outside my home. Unfortunately on this occasion I had forgotten to put my permit back up in the window and the next day the car was issued a fine. The permit is not stuck in my window as we transfer it between cars. I move the permit onto the car floor when driving as I cannot drive with the reflection of the permit on my dash in the windscreen.
  10. I have been invited to pay a parking charge notice £60 pounds if i pay within 14 days or 100 after. on 24/1 I parked in a car park that must be for residents only I was only there for about 10 mins and when I came back I had this notice on my car. i think the man must have been already in the car park. on closer looking there are some signs on the wall but they are covered in spray paint. I know you can fight free parking but can I fight this or do I just pay? tanks
  11. Please help advice me. The permit expired on the 3rd , I received a PCN on the 11th. I never got a reminder as it is anew sheme in my area in Haringey, it was said to have been put in for spurs and help us resident prevent pp parking in our roads during match days. I do not remember seeing any clear directives in the consultation process or the 1st permit isued to me about ensuring I renew and telling or giving me guidance that I have to renew and if I don't what the consequences are. I appealed he 1st ticket and it was declined and I then got a notice to owner and the fe
  12. Hi all, Our LA is proposing to change waiting restrictions in our neighbourhood, supposedly on the prefix folk use our area to collect kids from school, which is not the case at all, however we do get a lot of white van man up the next road and some local business parking from 7am to 3pm ish.. maybe a few station parkers but nothing too extreme. But my main concern is A) the cost to me and B) the state of the footpaths and lighting locally, and C) this will push the parking to the next available road that has a width restriction to its already narrow entrance that goes out of the e
  13. Hi folks, New user; just signed up to see if anyone has any input on this scenario! Hopefully someone can enlighten me a little. I just purchased, off my father, his old car. He's a GP and his car has a valid (until the end of July) residential parking season ticket displayed in the windscreen that relates to the car registration. This car registration is actually his own personalised plate, which he is in the process of getting transferred to his new vehicle. My street has residential parking restrictions on it. It is my intention to apply for a residential permit on
  14. I am a resident of UK. I came to UK from India 2 years ago in April 2012 on work Visa. I work for a car manufacturing company in UK. On 14th Dec 2014 I was driving my company car and caught speeding by a speed camera for exceeding 40MPH speed limit(Recorded Speed:51MPH). The police contacted my company to get the driver details as the car was registered on my company and they got my address from my company and sent me the “Notice of Intended Prosecution” I have my Indian Driving License; I got the International Driving Permit during my last visit to
  15. Problem with permit parking zone and council. We live in an unadopted road and on our deeds the land up to the centre of the road is ours. Because we live close to a school we agred to give the council permission (in 2003) to introduce a permit parking scheme. This was in the hope that they would police it at relevant times (drop offf/pick up). This has never really happened. Wardens do occasionally make an appearance but they won't confront parents in their cars and just hang around hoping their presence will be enough, then they go away and we don
  16. I received a parking ticket in August 2014, from ANPR ltd. My work's car park was operated by ANPR. I lost my permit the day before when my car was cleaned. I didn't notice it was missing and got a parking ticket when someone came round to check. I had been working for the company for 4 months prior to the ticket, parking in the same spot with the same car, as my company had been allocated a certain amount of car parking spaces. I was entitled to the spot. I swiftly got a visitors pass and used it until i left the company mid september. The car is in
  17. Hi, We have a residential parking area which is policed by wardens quite regularly. I have had a valid permit since the inception of this policy. I ndeed we were 1 of the original members of the meeting when this was being planned and took part in all discussions when decisions were being made. Monday morning a week ago, a neighbour knocked drawing our attention to the fact that my car had a PCN on windscreen, for 'not clearly displaying said permit'. As mentioned, current permit is valid and always has been. What had happened is on Sunday afternoon

I am hoping to get some advice, my son went to help his friend decorate a new flat he was moving into, he left a note in the windscreen stating 'working at No * ' he was given a however ticket which says he was parking in a permit space without a permit. contravention code 16. Can anyone give me any advice re appealing? Thanks
  19. Hi there. I'm after some advice. My wife has a private parking permit for a parking space she uses for work. Yesterday, she received a 'parking charge notice' stuck to her window because her permit wasn't displayed. The truth was that the permit was visible but it wasn't in it's holder (normally stuck to inside of windscreen) because the windscreen has recently been replaced and the holder was damaged. she has been having to remember to place the permit on the dashboard the last few days until she gets a new permit holder. The reason why we are incensed at the char
  20. hi. not sure where to post this thread sorry if its in the wrong place. i am a cabbie and work out of a local railway staion that used to be free. over the last three years we have had to apply for a yearly permit from meteor parking to wait in the station for business at a cost of £185 a year. are they entitled to do this as the land almost certainly belongs to BR although they probably have to apply to BR. as work is pretty rubbish at the moment and my permit is up for renewal this is another expense i and other cabbies could do without .thanks in anticipation
  21. Hi all, First post on here, so please go easy on me. My situation: Currently residing in family flat (NOT the owner), and finally bought a car. (Full time student at the moment.) The flat owner (aka my parent) has access to ONE off street parking space in the complex car park. Applied to the council for a residents permit to park on my street, where most of the bays are always empty. Told that as this is the inner town zone, and demand is high, there is a 6-12 month waiting list. In the latest email, they are now refusing me a permit in this zone (the inner town one),
  22. I am undecided on my course of action and wondered if anyone has been through a similar experience. This is the second time that i have had a parking notice from ukpc. I work for an organisation that leases several parking places in a car park monitored by ukpc. I was given a parking permit to use a specific space in the car park in July 2012. In August I forgot to display my permit and received a parking notice for £90. The human resources manager at my workplace sent an appeal on my behalf verifying that i had a permit. I assumed this was being dealt with so thought no more about
  23. Hi All just wanted some advice...... I am contemplating writing to my CEO at the trust I work at without becomming somewhat a trouble causer because nobody else wants to speak out or are too scared to, although I am known to them due to the recent thrashings of Roxburghe in court but isnt that what whisleblowing is about ? The crux of the matter is this....The trust has announced it intends to go through with its parking plan in 2014 which means that staff parking permits will sor from £180 per year to an average £500 dependant on salary. In their defence the trust say staff ha
  24. Hi all, Wondering if anyone can help, I parked in a bay that is supposed to be for the businesses in my area and have received a PCN for it. I honestly didn't see the sign as I was going by a map of the controlled areas I was given on the day i bought my permits. I had parked in the exact same spot the afternoon before, then later that night I went back to the car to display a new valid permit. Usually I can manage to park down the ally way where my flat is. I had looked at the other signs and even read a notice on the pole that shows the business permit sign but i didn't look fur
