  1. we have always had pre-payment meters as they are easier to run being on a low income a year or so ago, could be longer, we had an eon smart meter put in for the electric, at the time we had the old style key that you had to take to a shop to top up, the key goes back into the meter and that tops it up so a smart meter was in, and we could "top up" online, pretty good. around two weeks ago the smart meter was just showing "000s" everywhere, for the time, and all readings over the last couple of months the eon website was really terrible to use too, payments were being ma
  2. My energy supplier is Eon Energy. They have been very aggressive to try to provide me a smart meter. They come and visit me and want to talk to me but they never make an appointment. They call me all the time. I am most upset that they also decided to get in touch with my psychiatrist. I have no idea how they even know the name of this person and the contact details. Needless to say that I am horrified. I have sent Eon Energy a SAR request but no reply at all. I have contacted them by sending them letters and complaining about their behaviour but no reply. I have chatted with them online
  3. Hi, I received a PCN recently and I'm not 100% sure if a ticket was purchased for the time in the car park. The driver was in the ten pin bowling alley, which the car park is outside, with son for his birthday. Just wondering how I, the registered keeper, will go about handling this. 1 Date of the infringement - 10/2/19 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] - 18/2/19 3 Date received - 20/2/19 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [Y/N?] - N 5 Is there any photographic evidence o
  4. Hi all! I have received a parking charge - I had no idea I need to pay there, as it is a retail park and those are usually don't charge for parking - I am never shopping there again, that's for sure! We have been in the shop for about 35 min. And now they are asking for £54 or £90 if I don't pay by 14th October! PCN's received through the post [ANPR camera capture] 1 Date of the infringement 22/09/2018 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] Date on the letter 01/10/2018 3 Date received - I don't know, hubby o
  5. So I take care of Gas/Electricity switching for my grandmother, so her account is linked to my e-mail address as I submit meter readings online for her and such since she's basically a technophobe for anything more than a TV, and when I checked my e-mails this morning I had one from EDF saying "Thanks for booking an appointment to have Smart Meters installed" I hadn't made any such appointment online, and my grandmother had made no such appointment on the phone either, so EDF had simply taken it upon themselves to book a Smart Meter installation for her in 2 weeks time. Fortunately I wa
  6. It appears a number of Gas & Electricity Companies will not offer the best tariff if you do not have a Smart Meter.....Blackmail FS
  7. Some advice please. My severely disabled daughter (uses an electric wheelchair) and her carer used a car park in Exeter in a Smart Parking car park, but the carer only entered the last 3 letters of the car reg. This is most probably because in our local council car parks you only need the last three letters. The letter states we did not purchase a ticket or it was insufficient time. I still have the ticket and photographic evidence that we paid and parked, so I appealed on their behalf. The appeal was on the grounds that we did not enter the full reg and they are upholding the
  8. Hello. today i received a letter from zenith collections saying they want me to pay £160.00 for an unauthrorised parking charge. the address this was sent to is my old address not where i am living now as me and my wife separated in June 2017. i think the other letters from smart parking have also gone there, which ive never seen or been aware of. they are asking me to pay the £160.00 by 17/12/2018 or theyll start court proceedings and ill have to pay solicitors fees court fees etc. i parked by a local health centre not knowing it was smart parking for the health centre
  9. Father in Law received the PCN (speculative invoice) through the post. The date of the alleged offence was 22/09/18, date of PCN 01/10/18. Interesting scenario. In Laws are Blue Badge holders and have used the car park before with no issues. They remember seeing signs on the wall saying where disabled parking were and parked there. When the PCN came through they went back to check signage to find they have all been removed. Interesting article from their local paper about the car park. Article and redacted PCN attached. I assume usual procedure of ignore! Article from pape
  10. After parking in the rooftop park of the Gateway Shopping Centre in Trowbridge (Boots, New Look and Next), my wife received a parking charge notice from Smart Parking. At the time she parked there, she went looking for a machine, and found one with a cover saying "not in use". She went further and found a second, identically covered. She assumed all the machines were out and without walking the full area of the car park trying to find another machine, went about has business in Next for about 30mins. The charge would have been 80p. I appealed the charge to SP on their website (as her

  13. Hi everyone Having recently returned from a lovely holiday in Devon. I have received a parking notice charge from those lovely people at Smart Parking! After pulling into the car park at Haven Banks in Exeter I was handed a paid parking ticket by another motorist which still had one and a half hours left on it which i gladly accepted (What a mistake) Unbeknownst to me not being a native of Exeter the car park is covered by APNR cameras showing entrance and exit times of the vehicle. I was parked there for 1 hour and 5 mins according to this. Having been handed the tic
  14. Hi there, I'm new to this site. I received a parking charge notice of £90 for parking there on the 27th April 2018. I only received it today, and it says I need to pay this by 28th May 2018. I'm not sure what to do about this as I think its quite excessive, and from what I have read elsewhere, they are not the council so can not "fine" me. However, I would like some advice from here as to what I should do about something like this? the penalty is under my mum's name, but it was me who had taken the car to Exeter. I've attached the letter they sent me. Any advice
  15. Appealed online against a Smart Parking PCN - I emailed asking them to confirm they'd received the appeal. They responded. I emailed again to inform them I was travelling so could they email me the outcome. A month later I emailed them again enquiring about the outcome. They confirmed it was still in the process of being reviewed. Heard nothing. Then I was contacted by the debt collection agency 2.5 months later requesting £160. I contacted SmartParking. They claim they emailed me the outcome a day after my last email enquiry to them. I told them no email was recei
  16. Hi Every one, Please help/Advise. I was photographed entering the haven banks car park on the 22/dec/2017 at 11.42am. Paid £1.00 for 2hrs /120mins parking at 11.46. Was then photographed leaving at 14.03pm on the same day. Unfortunately I entered the last two digit's of my registration wrong ****LKX when it should of been ****LXK. So received a parking charge letter on the 01/01/2018 stating that I needed to pay £54.00within 14 days ,if I was to appeal and fail this would go up to £90.00. I of course contacted Smart Parking and forwarded on the parking ticket

  18. Hi there, My pregnant wife and I parked in the Haven Banks car park in Exeter on a Sunday afternoon and paid the parking charge for 2 hours. We have subsequently received a Parking Charge Notice showing images that say we left the car park 2 hours and 15 minutes after entering and so we are required to pay up to £90 (£54 with early pay discount). I am new to all this but see from the forum that this is not the first time their charges have been brought into question. My wife is over 6 months pregnant and so is obviously slower at moving than normal and also takes time to

  20. Hi all, we were Future Energy customers, before they folded last year. Shortly before the collapse, they fitted our home with smart meters. Now I was never happy with the gas meter and how it didn't fit in the existing box, resulting in the lid being left unlocked and open (see photos). Now we have been moved over to a new supplier (Green Star Energy), I am wondering whether they are liable for rectifying the problem? If not, who is? Thanks,
  21. I received a PCN for spending 21 minutes in a car park in a town I don't know well. I had pulled into the car park to answer a phone call on my mobile - I was in my daughters car so didn't have hands free. As I was then pulled over I rang home to check on the kids, and then rang my husband to see where he was _ I was suppose to be picking him up from town. He didn't know where he was so said he would find a road sign and ring me back. I drove round the car park a few times - tried to get my bearings - find the exit, work out what road I was on. He finally rang me back, gave me inst
  22. Hi I'm hoping that you can help me... A few days ago, I received a PCN from Smart Parking as the registered keeper of our vehicle, relating to an "unauthorised parking" of our vehicle on 24/01/2018. There are photos of the car entering the car park and leaving the car park. It seems to be fairly standard to come on here and ask about not paying the fine etc. but I have a slightly different enquiry - we actually have the ticket from Havens Bank car park on that day which shows that my husband paid to park in the car park. The ironic thing is that it's known to be noto
  23. Hi On 27/1/18 I parked in this car park operated by Smart Parking. The closest machine was out of order so I walked across the car park to obtain a ticket, which I am sure more than covered the period that I was parked - BUT, I no longer have the ticket. I received the attached notification on 2/2/18. I have no intention of paying this but I'd be grateful if you could advise of next steps. Should I raise an appeal or leave to run its course ? Thanks SPrinter3418020617320.pdf
