  1. Hi all, I need some help. The defendant has been issued with a £100 'Parking Charge' by Parking Eye. The alleged offence occurred during the day time on a weekend, and was apparently brought to the attention of the plaintiff by ANPR cameras recording time-stamped photos with entry+exit times of the vehicle registered to the defendant. The plaintiff claims that the defendant spent just over 30 minutes in total at the car park. Answers to the FAQ thread are as follows: 1 Date of the infringement: Late January 2019. 2 Date on the
  2. May i just add a very important factor on how WE all teach these unethical business a lesson that will make then sit up and take note… Business, in particular hotels such as Holiday Inn operate in a highly completive market place where even small adjustments to their statistics have significant rippled effects on their margins. So much so they employ technicians to monitor downward curves on online statics If WE collectively spent just 2 minutes posting a 1 star NEGATIVE GOOGLE review you will drive their ratings down faster then their CEO could say “get those Pa
  3. Hi, i need some advise please. I too received a letter from PE with regards to parking on the Town Quay in October 2019. I didn’t really understand their payment system - do I pay before or after - so I asked someone who worked there, they said I could pay either way. So, I paid when I got back, entered my vehicle number - which didn’t say how long I had been there - the payment layout was difficult to understand, I think I had underpaid by £2, I paid £6.50. What do I do? I can’t afford the £60,
  4. Something similar was highlighted in London a few years ago. Beggars were travelling from the suburbs into London by train - Journalists discovered that the beggars were then returning to their homes at the end of the day, usually £300-500 better off !!
  5. Just starting a thread on Electric Cars. I have noticed a Taxi Firm in my town has gone fully Electric. Can you believe this news. As i looked around Great Britain to see what was going on other towns have done the same. Just a quick look around but sure i read that cost of electric v fuel was roughly 1500.00 Electric per year v 7500.00 for fuel a saving of 6,000 pounds.This was a Taxi and i will have to find the article again. Also that batteries are improving and most motorway service stations have recharging points now. Better put a couple of articles on as i have not
  6. Hi, Not sure where to post this but I am in a jam and need help getting back on my feet. I am 23 and for last 4 years I have moved around the country camping and surviving on busking but now I need to hang up my violin and concentrate on settling down. My first problem is getting a care of address in the city I have decided to make my home, is it possible to use an address for benefit purposes which is located in another part of country. If I have no proof of living anywhere for the last four years am I unlikely to get help with social housing as I have no local connection wit
  7. Let us imagine.I hear many things. In my day,when you bought a house you did it up over time and that was that. Looked for a cheap house perhaps a little run down and bought it. Then spent many years saving a little and spending on your home. But i hear whispers,ok cannot be proved and i have not the time to delve to deep. Many landlords may have contacts and when a cheap house comes up puff,it is bought as quick as that. The first time buyers have no chance.Does this happen,perhaps you can tell me. I am not in a big town but i spoke to one landlord who had one hundred p

  9. It seems in order for the post office to deliver their mail slightly cheaper, they have changed my postal address, not just the post code. I now no longer live in the town the house has belonged to for 150 years. Can they legally move my town adress as I thought boundaries had to be changed by statute? I am no longer on the voting/ Electoral role list for my town... or any other town. The insurance companies can't find me so can't insure me. The school is discussing whether my children will have to move. It is having a devastating effect on our family! Any
  10. The following story appears on SCOOP today: Officers from Camden Council were left red-faced after High Court enforcement officers gained entry to the town hall last Wednesday and began seizing thousands of pounds worth of local authority owned TVs, computers and printers to repay approx £7,000 owed to a resident. http://www.hamhigh.co.uk/news/court-crime/chaos_at_camden_town_hall_as_high_court_bailiffs_seize_council_computers_to_repay_debt_to_resident_1_3788428
  11. Hi guys. I'm a long time user (occasional poster) and have been daft and obtained a notice which was affixed to my car the other week. On the 18th August, I went to Lincoln and parked in a Smart car park (T/A T&C) and paid for 4 hours parking. Stupidly, I went over the 4 hours by a few minutes and as I returned to my car, saw a yellow striped plastic bag stuck to my windscreen, stating "PARKING CHARGE NOTICE.... Unauthorised Removal is an offence". I opened it and there was an invoice for £35 rising to £70 if I didn't pay within a week. Now, I know I'm at fault for going
  12. Just to mention that I have received two speculative invoices from Town and City Parking. In both cases I have sent the letter below and they have cancelled the tickets rather than pursued the matter further. I know the advice is to ignore but this worked for me with this company. Dear Sir I acknowledge receipt of your “Notice to Owner” reference TCX. I do not acknowledge any liability to company. Your document is no more than a speculative invoice. Despite your reference to a “writ” and a “summons”, your only means of enforcement is through the county court. To do this you
  13. Other forums are reporting that TCP (or Smart Parking as they are now called) have been banned from accessing DVLA records. It's believed that the ban relates to the confusion over signage after the company was taken over by Smart Parking. All signs still mention Town and City even though that company does not exist any more. So a motorist is being asked to form a contract with a non-existent company and not with the new company.
  14. Just had a "Notice to Owner" from these clowns. I will generally speaking, ignore them but I want to put them on notice that I won't take any cr*p from them. I've therefore drafted this email. I would appreciate any comments, particularly whether the DPA Section 10 notice is relevant: Dear Sir I acknowledge receipt of your “Notice to Owner” reference TCX. I do not acknowledge any liability to company. Your document is no more than a speculative invoice. Despite your reference to a “writ” and a “summons”, your only means of enforcement is through the county court. To do this
  15. Hi again all, I know there has been some changes within the parking system! This is for a family member, and I just want to put her mind at rest, as when you pay for parking you have to produce your other half of the Parking ticket to get a discount in store. Is this still just the case of ignore the letters that sent as per usual, as there is No Loss by the Lando owner, in this case Asda! Here is what was stuck to screen and inside. Look forward to the usual replies Uploaded with ImageShack.us
  16. I have just read an interesting article on Wreham. Com involving the perth based private parking company Town and City Parking limited. I understand that ASDA management were contacted and asked if the demands being sent are legal parking tickets or just speculative invoices and they replied“the car park management company issue a parking charge notice (PCN) which are not fines, but civil penalties.” Correct me if I am wrong but I understood that penalties are ulawful not only in England and Wales but also in Scotland
