  1. We live in a parking blackspot in Basingstoke. We have lived here for over 30 years and parking has become a nightmare for my husband and myself. If we drive anywhere during the day we have to make sure we return by 4.00pm at the latest and not at all at weekends or we are unable to park. It probably sounds over the top but it is having an effect on our lives. We have a residential parking permit for our car and a visitors permit, which is pointless because we can never invite visitors because they cannot park. It would seem that the "visitors" permit has become a 2nd c
  2. Hello CAG members I have recently had a new permit system put in place at my place of residents. I sent an email to apply for permits to both my company and private vehicle back in September 2015, I had a response saying that they will send them out. I did not receive them and I should have chased this up but I'm a busy man and work away from home a lot. It weren't until December when I got back from work that I found a PCN on my car, I sent an email to ask where my permits are and they sent me an email saying they will send them out but whilst I was waiting I received anothe
  3. Hey, I have moved into a new flat at the beginning of November, today have received a notice saying that parking permits will be coming into place on our car park (all of the car parks in the neighborhood, really!). I have two cars (one for me and one for my husband) as we both are courier drivers so we need them for work. Unfortunately we only received one resident permit, and one visitor permit, which is only valid for 12 days annually. I have called them, and have been told that they can't give us another resident permit, and I should just park 'else
  4. On Sunday 21 December 2014, I visited friends in Leeds. I parked, as suggested by my friend, in the courtyard of the block of flats in which he lives (ie private land). On returning to the car (roughly 60 to 90 minutes later), I found a note stuck to the windscreen. The note was a reasonable facsimile of a parking ticket - a yellow and black plasstic envelope containing a form headed "Penalty Charge Notice" - but issued by a private firm (City Permits) on private land. I admit that the car was parked on private land without authorisation, but there was plenty of space as there were v
  5. Hi all, I wonder if anyone can help me? I was issued some visitor parking tickets by Newham council and which were Zone U and should have been Zone S- I was sent the wrong ones. I put one of these on my girlfriend's car when she came to visit me and she got a PCN, because the tickets were for the wrong Zone. I do not drive and it was the first time I was using one of these, so I expected the tickets to be correct as I gave the council my correct address Stratford that I needed the tickets for. Disgusted, I took all the remaining tickets to the local council office and they swapp
  6. Hi, My local council has started to charge £25 per parking permit as the road I live on is part of a residents parking permit scheme. Up until now the permits were free, the scheme was set up to allow residents to be able to park outside there homes as employees from a local bank were taking up many spaces. The council voted at cabinet to charge residents who were already part of a parking scheme in order to make some money and cover costs of administering the scheme. There was no consultation on this and the first residents knew about the charges was at the start of December when the c
  7. I am considering the purchase of a flat in the centre of Bath. I have been advised that the property does not come with the right to a residents parking permit, although all of the neighbouring properties do have this right. This seems to be a fundamentally inequitable situation. Can the council arbitrarily decide which residents of an area are entitled to parking permits? Is there any mechanism to challenge this? Thanks Bacon
