  3. I have lived in a block of 10 flats for 10 years, there is a residents management company of which I am a director along with the other 9 owners. I have just been told that at an AGM 11 years ago it was agreed (documented in the minutes) that parking is restricted to certain times of the day in a specific place and that as I parked there at night I must not do it again. There is nothing in the lease about parking anywhere at any time but my concern really is that I didn't know that I would have to abide by some majority decision made 11 years ago of which I knew nothing
  4. Would be grateful for some advice pls. LA in middle of carrying out works inside residents homes that were given no choice in the matter whatsoever. Their contractors doing decorating but only the area they had to do work on, other area in same room left undone therefore the room looks unfinished decorating wise. Can they do this look awful partly decorated which means residents has to finished it and cannot afford to do it. Can council do this ?
  5. The following is an extract from a press article today. Westminster Council already have a similar system in place. If only other local authorities could follow this example. http://www.camdennewjournal.com/council-tax-exemptions THOUSANDS of people in Camden are set to be made exempt from paying council tax to save the Town Hall cash on chasing for money they do not have. Labour council chiefs are looking at a plan which would see around 11,500 of the borough's poorest residents no longer receive the bill from the Town Hall. The proposal will go out to a public con
  6. Dear All, This is my first ever post on the forum and hopefully someone can help me. In August I parked in a residents' bay on a bank holiday. The sign said Mon-Sat 0800-1600. I thought Sunday restrictions would apply on a bank holiday so I could park there. The pay and display bays on the same street are Mon-Sat 0800-1600 and do not charge on a Bank Holiday. I am now appealing to the adjudicator. Any tips on how to make my case? I am also trying to find a electronic copy of the relevant TRO. It's called Birmingham City Council (Jewellery Quarter Birmingham)(Controlled Parking
  7. Now that it look's clear that a conservative government is going to be running the UK, I am very concerned for my future. I cannot work and have been unable to for four years now, and housebound for much longer than that. What I would like to know is am I likely to be treated more fairly and be more welcome in an other EU country. Or any other country for that matter! I understand this is not the usual topic, but I'm just wondering if anyone knows about this. I don't have enough ties here to stop me moving, and I imagine everyone in my situation is just going to suffer here.
  8. Hi All, I just received a council PCN for a missing parking permit and I was wondering if I had any grounds. I purchased my car not too long ago and have not yet attached a tax disk holder / resident permit holder. I had therefore temporarily removed these from the dashboard when I had the window open to avoid them flying off and had parked the car without putting these back - which wasn't clever. The contravention was for "Parked in a residents' zone or shared use parking place or zone without either clearly displaying a valid permit or voucher or pay and display ticket issued

  10. I have uploaded all the files for viewing to my dropbox which can be accessed by the following link. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/30ay5qiynaugl9p/AADand9mVR4yeqIcMqQrbbT7a On 02/05/14 I drove northbound up Southampton Row, and turned left into Bloomsbury Place WC1, and saw a parking place directly on the left hand side. Upon parking the view from my windscreen was a P&D payment box, and next to it a sign. I sat in my car and made payment by phone, following instructions on the sign I was looking at. Upon returning I didn’t even notice I had been given a ticket, was
  11. Hi everyone looking for some advice, I have not had a ticket here but nearly did till I saw the residents only parking sign. I then looked much more closely at the road markings for this particular bay, please use street view to let me know what you think, as I believe the line markings are non compliant, but cannot find the "legal" markings for this type of bay. I was visiting a friend for a few days and think that the local council are issuing tickets in these bays when they are not compliant. see here please https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@51.550452,0.728156,3a,75y,162.69h,
  12. Hi everyone, been looking over various posts on this forum and think it's probably easier to ask advice than on my specific problem I was issued a Parking Ticket at my (previous) residence in Manchester, it was a private residents car park which was policed by UKPC. I had a Parking permit for the Car Park and displayed it every time i used it. On the day i was ticketed the permit had fell onto the floor so was not visible When i looked at the ticket the attendant had filled out the form but had marked the registration of my car incorrectly, marked as an '08' rather than an '09' model
  13. Hi all, For approx 8 years now I have had a space in a council locked car park which I pay a weekly rent for. There are numbered spaces which you have allocated to your vehicle. you must provide MOT and owner info showing that the vehicle is roadworthy etc. You are given a permit and in the entire time of my occupation it has never been either checked or indeed enforced. ( We have always had issues with access being blocked by twats parking in front of the gates on a yellow cross hatching and double yellow lines etc. They get away with it frequently on an almost daily basis. Th
  14. 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),
  15. Hi I received a PCN the other day for parking in a residents only zone in Bury, Greater Manchester BL9 0RS. I had no idea that it's a resident only zone as there were no signs or marking on the road that I parked. There was a sign two streets away as you enter that area that said residents only parking, but I didn't see that sign as it is obscured and angled in such a way that from the direction that I came from you just couldn't see it properly - as shown in the attached photos. I emailed them all this info to NSL but they rejected my appeal and said I can appeal further if I
  16. I recieved a parking ticket today whilst displaying a pay and display ticket. I had drove along the road (Arley Hill, Cotham Bristol- new residents parking scheme set up nov 2012) looking for a space and noticed a bay opposite the pay and display meter, I parked, paid my money and merrily went on my way however on returning to my car I noticed the dredded yellow ticket, stating contravention 16 : parked in a permit space without displaying a valid permit. I had mistakenly parked in the sole residents parking bays (between 9-5) instead of the dual use bays.
  17. Hi Everyone, Sorry if I do anything wrong whilst posting this....this is my first post!! I received a PCN (on 28/11/2012) for parking in my own parking bay without displaying a permit, after reading though a few websites and some of the topics in these forums (a belated thank you!!) i felt relatively confident that i wouldn't have to pay the fine. With all the information at my fingertips, I sent the following letter (on 04/12/2012) in the appeals section on the PCM (uk) website thinking that it would be end of the matter. Dear Sir or Madam, Speculative Parking Ch
  18. Hi I am an owner/occupier of a flat where the management company has decided to re introduce parking permits. There are new signs around the car park stating that you must park in a marked bay and display a permit or you will be liable to a parking ticket of £100. This came into force on Monday 19 November. I went away on Friday 16 November,not using my car which I left in the car park in a marked bay, and returned today. When I went to go out in my car I noticed I had a "Parking Charge Notice" on my windscreen for not displaying a valid parking permit.. .I
  19. I visit many residents in a residential home for the elderly folk. The residence is " advertised as Sheltered accomodation and Retirment homes for the elderly" However the residents have now aquired a new person who is 59 and is working full time. He goes out to work at 5 30 am in the morning and is bacjkaround 9 30pm. His works van is parked directly outside some of the residents flat windows and is restricting their views of peacful gardens. Many residents cannot go outside and this is all they have to look at. Also many residents a woken at 5 30 in the morning by the slamming o
  20. Dear all, I have have scanned the previous threads but i am unable to find a similar scenario. To park outside my home in the street I need a Residents Parking Permit. My existing one had expired so I went to the local council offices to purchase a new one. I was told there would be a delay in sending a permenant permit (one that I can stick to my wind screen and forget about). I was given a printed A4 sheet of paper to act as a temporary permit. I folded the A4 sheet so it displayed the necessary information. The permenant permit took 6 weeks to arrive, a lot longer than t
  21. Dear All I was absolutely amazed to receive a notice to owner by post few days ago. I stopped on residents bay to make a phone call (no other places to stop). A minute or so later a parking warden jumps out of nowhere, photographs car from the front, quickly jumps and photographs my tax disk. I was astonished and lost for words! I knew if i come out I would make trouble (I cant keep calm with them) so I just drove off on the assumption that he is just playing games and just wanted to make a scene. I also remembered that in any case he has to put a ticket on the car- apparently not an
  22. Have you been issued with a PCN (Penalty Charge Notice) because unbeknown to you your residents parking permit had expired? Did you know that it is your fault as you agreed to Camden's terms and conditions saying it is your responsibility to renew your permit even if the permit carries no indication as to the renewal date and if you didn't receive notification from the council that it was due? Do you think this is fair? What happens if you don't have access to the internet and can't check your permit? Did you receive a 'sticker' telling you the expiry date? Do you still have the ema
