  3. I can see a few things against UKCPS however I thought I'd start my own thread. Someone driving my car today receiving a "Parking Charge Notice" on the car for leaving the site, of £100 or £60 within 14 days. I've attached photos of the PCN and of the sign at Bristol Abbeywood Retail Park. I'm the keeper of the vehicle however I wasn't driving the car (I was at home!) so is there anything they can actually do?

  5. Hi All I got an NTK through the door from UKCPS yesterday. No ticket on the windscreen, I am assuming it was an ANPR generated ticket. It appears to be UKCPS standard NTK for a stay beyond stipulated time limit. Details below: For PNC's received through the post [ANPR camera capture] please answer the following questions. 1 Date of the infringement Allegedly 25 September 17 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date]29 September 17 3 Date received 02 Oct 17 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The P
  6. Hi All I parked on Private Land Car Park 30/04/2016 when I went to the cinema with my son and his mate. I worked out that the film should finish and give us time to get back to the car park in time so as not to get charged for additional parking ie £60. However on getting back to the cars we both received(my sons mates car) parking tickets. Well we were furious as the 3 of us checked the tickets and the time it was issued and it said it was issued at 19.22 and time first observed at 19.12 (tickets were 3 hours £2.80)and expiry was 19.11. my sons mate got his ticket at exactly th
  7. Aplogies as an absolute newbie here, however I was asked to create a new thread. There is another recent thread (I can't post links, maybe someone else could as seems daft to recreate a whole heap of stuff). I am in the identical situation at the same location I have just received an identical letter from UKCPS, all details completely as the above mentioned thread (same paperwork). My wife was driving my car that day, obviously she didn't spot any signage etc. 28 minutes over a 4hr limit..... Disgusted that companies can request such 'fees', she is disabled (was parked in
  8. Hi this is my first post...so apologies in advance if I'm not doing it right! I've done the research after getting a notice from UKCPS. I wasn't the driver at the time so they are pursuing me as the registered keeper. What Id like to know is how the Protection of Freedom Act is being used by them to circumvent Contract Law... My question is if I wasn't there and didn't read their signage how can I bound by their contract?
  9. Advice please my son parked in the parking garage connected to the flat he rents - his permit had fallen on the floor of his car and he did not notice when he parked so came back to a PCN from UKCPS for £100 discounted to £60 if paid within 14 days. He decided to appeal but has had this rejected and been told to pay within 14 days of the letter which is dated 16th August so has now passed. He is not the registered keeper of the car - my husband is - my son is the main driver. also my son no longer lives at the address as he has moved back home. Do we need to wait for
  10. i have received a parking fine for £60 or in 2 weeks if not paid £100 I was parked apparently on private land I was not aware of this at the time, it was from 1st aug. 11.40 till 1st aug 14.11, I was with my mum who is 84yrs old and disabled at which we displayed the blue badge, should I pay this by law, as i did look for a machine to pay so thought it was free, can you please advise?
  11. Hi I've just received through a county court claim form from ukcps. I currently pay and have done for a while £85 per month to park in a private Carpark for work. It was owned by the shopping centre but was then taken over and we were issued permits that we had to display. On the day I got the fine my permit had blown onto the foot well so I sent a letter to ukcps and stated this. They have carried on with court proceedings even though I have my receipts for paying every month and now I have no idea how to appeal this online but refuse to pay the £175 they are now aski
  12. Hi guys - really need some advice! I received a PCN for allegedly parking without a valid permit around three months ago, I foolishly disregarded this and thought nothing more of the matter. Imagine my surprise when I received the below correspondence - This is the first letter I have received with regards to this matter and was wondering how best to proceed?
  13. Good evening. I am a newbie so be gentle with me please. Parked in a near empty pub car park in September with my 86 year old father in law to take him to the bank and for some lunch. The signs were very officious and said permission of the landlord of the public house. The pub is empty. We were gone maybe 40 mins on return found a parking ticket on the window and a large gentleman in a very small van with "parking control" on the side watching and grinning. I asked him why I had been given a ticket he said because I wasn't showing a valid permit. What
  14. Had a lovely holiday in Spain for my 40th! Booked the holiday through a travel agent including airport parking. Been home a month,and received a parking fine from UKCPS for £100. My car had been parked for the week on Skypark Liverpool and the reason for issue was WITHOUT A VALID PERMIT OR AUTHORITY. Apparently a notice was affixed to the windscreen of my vehicle, nothing on the car windscreen or was told about this by our meet and greet rep for Skypark. I have contacted Skypark Liverpool and their head office in Blackpool. No response from Liverpool but had a response from Hea
  15. hi new to this. I sold my car a year ago, and I have just received a parking charge from last month but I don't own the vehicle anymore any advice would be welcome. the person I sold the vehicle too said he would change the name over himself. stupidly I agreed. and now I received a fine for over staying my parking time. the thing is the vehicle was declared off the road before I sold it. what should I do
  16. Have read the other threads on site and else where about this car park. I read the parking notices like others and to be fair if it says for site users I missed that. The Biggest part says 1 hr only. Came back in less than 20 min and a ticket saying I'd been observed leaving the site, not sure how but I'm guessing there using CCTV as there were about 5 or 6 cars ticketed. Pay £100 fine but only £60 for paying quick. Well not much chance of that. There were only 10 cars in around a 100 space car park. Don't see that I have caused any inconvenience or affected trade for Staples and Maplin's
  17. Hello you wonderful wonderful people Let me cut straight to the chase I parked in a private land which i have done a number of times while going to the bank in town. I did not see any visible signs with terms and condition only a worn out red paint on the wall with the words private parking. I comeback half an hour later and lo and behold i have parking notice slapped on the windscreen of my car. As advised by friends and people on forums I chose to ignore it. Got a few letters and chose to ignore them as well. Then as usual with these private companies i got m
  18. Hello I'm hoping someone will be able to help regarding 2 parking tickets I have received on residential land and whether or not I should pay them. I was parked on double yellow lines in a residential complex visiting a friend as many other cars were parked in the same way as the visitor car park was full so I thought that this would be acceptable. I have done this many times before and had no issue and then received 2 tickets on separate occasions very close to one another. Foolishly perhaps I ignored the letters from them on advice of other people but have now re
  19. Hi, I am a blue badge holder and our car was parked in a private retail car park (free for all customers). A PCN was posted on the windscreen as being parked in a disabled bay without displaying the badge. AS this topic seems to be a bit of a minefield and having got no further in my decision of how to deal with this despite reading up on the subject for days, I was hoping that someone here would be able to help. As I understand it I need to wait for the NtK before proceeding but also I have read that I should appeal within the first 14 days. I do intend
  20. Hi all, Firstly, apologies for starting a new thread. I have read all the sticky threads and as much as I can on other websites/forums, but I'm still not clear on the best course of action. Any advice would be massively appreciated. I rent a flat, which has an allocated parking space. Unfortunately, I was not provided with a parking permit badge by the letting agent or landlord when I moved in. There are UKCPS signs in the car park, but as I was a tenant and had an allocated parking space, did not really pay them any attention. UKCPS have since issued three charges (charges on the w
  21. I received a windscreen invoice from UKCPS after being parked illegal in a private car park. The background to the case was that my elderly mother who is diabetic was having a hypoglycaemic attack. It was medical emergency. My mother is a Blue Badge holder but there was not time to display the badge. I completely ignored UKCPS demands for payment after reading advice on forums. I have now received the attached letter from Miah Solicitors. They have sent me Practice Direct on Pre-Action Conduct. What would action would you all advise me to take? Should I no
  22. Hi All, I would appreciate any advice on this. I am always very meticulous about where I park my car due to being stung in the past by parking wardens. On this occasion, I parked my car lunch time today by the side on the road on a private land in a shopping centre to queue up to withdraw money from an ATM machine opposite. Surprise surprise, I stepped into my car a few minutes later to discover Parking Charge Notice on my windscreen. Time of issue was 12.42, while time first observed was 12.37. Reason for issue states observed parking. H
  23. I received a letter from "The Miah Solicitors" debt recovery team about their client UKCPS. The details are: I parked out of a marked bay in a when visiting a friend who lives in a zone controlled by UKCPS, they put a ticket which I picked up on the windscreen. I parked in early 2015. The charge is £100, £25 UKCPS administration fee, and £150 legal costs. They also state in the letter "The supreme court ruled on 4th November 2015 that charges for parking on private land are enforceable, you should therefore arrange to make payment..." I have the following to say
  24. Hi. I wonder if anyone can help me. In June 2013 I received a parking charge notice at Chatham Maritime car park. It stated that I had been observed 'leaving the site', indeed I did leave to deliver a letter but then returned to the shopping centre where I purchased a few items. I wasn't aware that leaving the site was not allowed ( I used to regularly park in this car park and go to University) and did not notice the parking ticket until I got home. At the time I was all set to appeal and had written an email to send them but having browsed the internet
  25. Hi In mid August we got a parking ticket "observed leaving site" at a UKCPS car park. We took the advice here and waited for the NtK. So have not yet contacted them The NtK has now arived (within the time constraints) and now I am going to challenge the charge based on the following. I've used various templates to gather what I think is most relevant 1 the attendant did not attempt to mitigate the loss. 2 A previous court case (ie VCS vs Ibbotson) have ruled that leaving the site is not a breach of contract. 3 There can be no loss as the car park was half empty both
