Hi,

 

I have just recieved a debt letter from baliffs regarding a parking ticket I recieved on 07/09/2009.

I sent 3 emails to Nottingham city council contesting the tickets and never recieved a reply and unfortunatly forgot to chase this.

According to the baliff I actually recieved two tickets for the offence and each are now at £257.11 giving me a total of £514.22 to pay in 48 hours!

Aside from the fact that the council never replied to my emails, what I need to know is can I recieve two tickets for the same offence in one day?

I have dug out a letter from the council stating the offence of " parking in a residents or shared use parking place without clearly displaying a parking permit" there was one ticket on my car at the time however the follow up letter from the council states one ticket was given for the offence at 09.06am and another ticket for the same offence at 14.42pm the same day.

Am I in my rights to contest this and minimise it to the one payment or is this correct and I was just unlucky!

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks Dan.

Did you receive documentation entitled "Notice To Owner"? If so what did you do with it?

If you were parked in the same place under the same restrictions then you should have only had 1 PCN. If the restrictions changed then you can get two tickets (say for example in a CPZ parking is restricted 8am-11am and 2pm-7pm you can get two tickets if you were parked from 9am to 3pm).

 

My advice to you is to pm "tomtubby" and post these details in the bailiffs section. You need to fill in some legal forms which I have no experience of so cannot give accurate advice. Basically I think you have to make a statement that you didn't receive either charge certificate or order for recovery (if truthful). That should help you out. Whether you get the opportunity to pay at NTO rate or with the 50% uplift I don't know.

 

If at the NTO rate you may get the opportunity again to appeal - if there are reasons to do so but that is for another day.

 

Best of luck.

....or left and reparked

 

I would try contacting the Council on the phone first and tell them to call off the baliffs and take it back to cc stage but if they play hard ball you need as BTB stated to fill in some forms asap.

ok thank you very much for your help, I will contact the council today :-)

 

Tell them that you have not received charge certificates and order for recovery for both PCNs thats 4 letters that seem to have disapeared, 1 could be down to the Postie but 4 means someone somewhere has messed up, assuming you have not moved since you sent off your v5 (logbook).
