I've received a £100.00 parking charge notice for parking at a Retail Park.



The maximum time allowed to park is 2 hours but I was parked for 2hours and 24min.



I went to the walk-in centre which is located next to the Retail Park as I wasn't feeling well.

I wasn't aware of the waiting time I had been whilst at the walk-in centre and

once I was called in to see the nurse, I must have been in with her for about 45min.



Unfortunately I couldn't say to the nurse my parking time was running out and I had to go move the car.



After the appointment, the nurse told me to go get something to eat as soon as possible as my sugars levels were extremely low.

I went to KFC afterwards which is still in the retail park, but only went through the drive through.



Can anyone please help me with any advice to help me get this cleared from my name as I cant afford to pay this

and I think it is very excessive for just 24min.



Many thanks in advance

Presumably this was a Private Parking Company against whom it is easy to win with a properly drafted reply so don't worry.



I'm just an occasional visitor but have won quite a number of these.

I'm sure the regular contributors will be back to you with advice on how to win.



The retailers you visited can get it cancelled for you as well but if you have any documentation from the nurse

it will help to give the parking company a valid reason to cancel.



They don't like to cancel on the many legal points that will be raised with regard to signing,

contract formed, genuine pre-estimate of loss etc.



In the meantime you can do a bit of research with:


Google "Parking Cowboys" site and take a look around to familiarise yourself with some of the terminology.


There's lots more info available and I'm sure someone will be back with some fairly simple solutions for you.


Good Luck


PS. Looking around the site a bit more i thing you've posted this in the wrong place, (as i did earlier) Look at "Private Parking Tickets" there's lots of other folks in the same boat.

Hi and welcome to CAG.


I have moved this thread to a different forum as from what you are saying (and the thread title) this is a private parking ticket.


I am assuming this is a Notice to Keeper that has come through the post.


Can you confirm that and the name of the company.

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

You owe nothing don't worry yourself over it, it's nothing more than an invoice that you don't have to pay.


Was the letter you received through the post a 'notice to keeper'?


It's only Parking Lie and they like to prey on the vulnerable who don't know their rights, ericsbrother will advise you how to kick them back under their little rock!

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

thought so, sounded very familiar. if you read the thread I've linked to you'll see a very similar situation, the signage at that carpark is atrocious with unreadable T&C's.

The experts will soon sort this out, you won't be paying a penny.

Thanks very much for your help. Will be drafting the appeals letter today and also send the confirmation letter from the walkin centre confirming the delay. Will keep you posted.

your appeal to pe can say pretty much anything, it's the POPLA code you're after which costs them money, in the other case they lost on no contract with landowner.

The land is owned by a church trust and run by a management co. so chances are they haven't got one.

also only reply to pe as the registered keeper, never identify anybody(including yourself) as the driver,

Just say as registered keeper you are not liable for this invoice and as the signage is unreadable no contract was formed with the driver so either cancel this charge or supply a POPLA code.

Is the drive through in the retail park by any chance? If so your appeal is that the veihicle was parked for a time allowed by the contractual terms offered and any time beyond those permitted hours were spent queueing at the KFC so not parked. If they do not cancel immediately you require a POPLA code and you WILL be making the story public via the local papers when your appeal has been upheld as it certainly will be.

If they dont cancel then there are numerous grounds to go to POPLA with and yes, get the local paper interested in the story about being fined for going to the local KFC. KFC wont be happy that they are seen as participating in robbing their customers so more pressure will be brought to bear on the landlord to get rid of these vultures.

Hi I've received a letter back from Parking Eye to say my appeal has been unsuccessful. Its been unsuccessful on the basis that I should not have parked on the retail park as I was at Moorgate Walk-in Centre which is separate to the Retail Park and also due to the signage which clearly states the 2hour limit. When I draft a letter to POPLA, should I include a copy of the letter I received from Moorgate Walk-in Centre as well as the receipt from KFC, even though I was at KFC drive through for about 5min? Thank you

No, dont bother with the letter, the reason your appeal was turned down is because of that despite it being completely irrelevant as far as parking where you did goes.

Your appeal to POPLA should be that You were parked less than the permitted 2 hours and the other time was spent looking for a parking space to begin with, trying to comprehend the awful signage that offerwed tyou a contract to park, queueing at the KFC (you can send a copy of this receipt if you wish but not absolutely necessary) and queueing to exit. All of this time beyound the 2 hours PARKING limit was whislt engaged in activities that meant your vehicle was not parked and so there has been no breach of that parking condition.

That in any case no loss has been caused by your action to either the landlord or the parking company and therefore the claim from PE is an unenforceable penalty and not a claim for an actual loss.

If you mention the health centre they may be minded to disallow your appeal, why you were there is not the business of the parking company or the appeals adjudicator but dont mention it and they cant use it against you.
