    • Thanks for the welcome Andyorch   dx100uk - I have had 2 previous addresses since coming back to the UK.   Does this mean I should not ignore?   
    • I would be inclined to rip their WS apart. That way, I doubt that VCS would wish to proceed to Court.  In paragraph 5 VCS claim they have full compliance with their Code of Practice for Private Enforcement and Private Land. Really? Can this be the same VCS that was issuing PCNs between 2013 and 2017 knowing that the signage there had not been agreed by Liverpool council and therefore the signage was illegal. Here is an open letter from the Parking Prank   Tuesday, 19 November 2013 An open letter to Simon Renshaw Smith of VCS parking regarding Liverpool John Lennon Airport   19/11/2013 Dear Mr Renshaw Smith,   I wish to draw your attention to the procedural impropriety in your operational activities on the approach roads within Liverpool John Lennon Airport.   You are actively operating under contract to issue civil penalty tickets (PCN’s) for traffic offences on the roads such as stopping at the roadside, whether for seconds, minutes or even longer, or for parking on the roadside verges.   You are doing so based on an allegation of contractual agreement for a breach of parking conditions and are actively sending out a notice to keeper in each case where you ask for the name and address of the driver. You are doing this under the provisions of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012.   As you are no doubt aware, due to your many years of experience in emptying people’s wallets, where land is governed by byelaws the remedy for any breach of conditions of those byelaws is through the criminal courts, such as a magistrates.   Not only that, since the byelaws set an amount of penalty for failure to comply with them; a further amount based on your own assessment is unlawful at best and perhaps even fraudulent.   A set of the byelaws for the Liverpool Airport have now been obtained from a reliable source, Liverpool City Council,  which sets out the airport’s stance on roadway use, or misuse. It also lays down a penalty upon summary conviction for a breach of the byelaws of £5 for the 1st offence and a further amount of 40 shillings for a continued daily breach.   I put it to you that these byelaws govern the airport’s penalty regime for the alleged contraventions you are enforcing. In fact there is no penalty for stopping at the roadside. There is no offence committed so there can be no penalty unless it can be proven in a magistrate’s court that this action amounted to a failure under para 14: “Driving or placing a vehicle carelessly or dangerously or without due consideration for persons using the airport”   Para 18 gives notice that a “failure by the driver of a vehicle to comply with any direction for the regulation of traffic given by a constable or any person acting on behalf of the council or a traffic sign” will be subject to the penalty regime of the aforementioned £5 plus 40 shillings per day afterwards.   The mention of the traffic signs and the council's part in the overall monitoring means that the signs must be compliant to the TSRGD which are those shown for the public highways; not the ones arbitrarily stuck at the roadside by yourself which are meaningless in the context of the legal status of the byelaws.   Furthermore, POFA 2012 3(1)(c) states that Schedule 4 only applies on land on which the parking of a vehicle is not subject to a statutory control. It further states (3)For the purposes of sub-paragraph (1)(c) the parking of a vehicle on land is “subject to statutory control” if any statutory provision imposes a liability (whether criminal or civil, and whether in the form of a fee or charge or a penalty of any kind) in respect of the parking on that land of vehicles generally or of vehicles of a description that includes the vehicle in question.   The byelaws state at para 2.19 that the following act is prohibited. The penalty for this is a fine not exceeding five pounds.   POFA 2012 therefore does not apply, and you may therefore only pursue the driver and not the registered keeper. Moreover, you may only pursue them for the sum of five pounds.   Knowingly pursuing the registered keeper when POFA 2012 is an offence which the DVLA take extremely seriously and may ban you from access. The BPA wrote to you in their electronic newsletter this month reiterating this.   I put it to you, Mr Renshaw Smith, that your company is operating unlawfully at the Liverpool Airport site and ask what you intend to do since this has now been brought to your notice.   May I remind you that since this is an unlawful operation, you may well be required at some later time to recompense the amounts of the PCN’s already paid by drivers, and perhaps face tough questions in a court of law, not just a civil court.           Happy Stopping Briefly At the Roadside   The Parking Prankster   The Prankster would like to thank his source for the above   I am sure that you will find other examples of VCS not complying with Code of Conduct or the Law.   And of course VCS do not have the ability to take you to Court because you were a trespasser and only the land owner can take a trespasser to Court.          
    • Yes ...you have it confirmed by the court above that they requested a copy of the Order/Consent on the 2/08/2019....and then requested judgment on 21/08/2019 .
    • blimey J&P   I wonder how many more solicitor firms UAE creditors will try and use as a cheaper alternative to IRDWW and their cohorts that appear to have cost them £1000's in fees for nothing in return.   if this is not a letter of claim  pers i'd ignore them unless you have previous UK addresses since coming to the UK?
    • Thats the idea.....any further flaws with the reconstituted agreement ? They will be able to rely on a recon given that the agreement is post April 2007 but it must be accurate and a true copy of the agreement used from that date.   Andy

I had my WHD applied back in Oct and this actually caused me more problems that it solved.

 

Because it was applied so early when the weather was mild and my heating wasn't even turned on until late Oct...

it meant that Eon kept my DD artificially lower and then just before Xmas decided to double and the entire WHD was sucked up with the autumn bill and of absolutely no use during the cold winter months.

 

So my question is...

how to stop that from happening again this year.

 

I can't afford to have my DD more than doubled especially when my heating is turned off from mid/late April until around Oct and the only gas I use is for hot water.

 

My other alternative is to switch back to EDF who at least paid the WHD around Feb/March when the winter quarter bill is actually due.

 

Hello Heckler and I'm afraid I can't give you a specific answer to your question. We haven't finalised the details of the 2018/19 scheme yet.

 

Last year we handled a considerable amount of applications and payments for Warm Home Discount. Given the size of this task, we need to stagger payments and these went out between September 17 and March 18. I suspect a similar thing will happen with the 2018/19 scheme.

 

You can, though, take more control over your monthly payments by using an online tool called the 'Direct Debit Manager.' Provided you've registered with our website, you can use this tool to change the monthly payments to better suit different circumstances. If the account is billed up to the latest meter readings, payments can be changed by up to 20 per cent up or down. By up to 5 per cent up or down without readings. Before confirming the new amount, we'll let you know by how much we think the account will be in credit/debit by the annual review if the payments are changed but usage doesn't alter as expected. There's more about this tool on our website.

 

With this type of payment arrangement, we aim to achieve as near as possible to a zero balance by the annual review. The 'Direct Debit Manager' plus other information on our website is there to help customers keep an eye on their accounts and to make sure things are on track for a zero balance. They help avoid sudden shocks too.

 

Sorry I can't be more specific Heckler but hope the 'Direct Debit Manager' is of interest.

So your answer is do cancel the DD and lose out on the discount which I think is about £45 a year?

 

Sorry Heckler, missed this bit. Just to confirm, customers who pay with a Monthly Direct Debit have lower daily Standing Charges. This is a saving of around £45 per year when compared with customers paying by any other means. It's not a discount as such. More a payment adjustment through a lower daily rate.

 

Hope this explains.

I think the point others are making Heckler there is absolutely no connection to your usage or DD...its a one off payment to assist with your fuel payments...so in reality its irrelevant whether you get it Jan feb or July Aug...its simply a credit to your account ?

 

That's right Andy. Warm Home Discount is a one-off payment to help our more vulnerable customers with their winter bills. As above, for the 2017/18 scheme, we started making payments in September 17 and are making the final ones now. All customers eligible for the payment will have received it by the end of this month.

Sorry Heckler. This should read a saving of around £45 per year PER FUEL for customers paying with a Monthly Direct Debit as compared with those paying by other methods. This makes around a £90 annual saving for dual fuel customers paying with a Monthly Direct Debit.

Afternoon all and a quick update about our 2018/19 Warm Home Discount scheme.

 

 

We're starting to pay the Warm Home Discount to successful applicants now. We can't give specific payment dates and are looking to make all payments by the end of March 19. Provided, that is, customers don't change electricity supplier or move home before the payment is made. This is for those successfully applying to us through the Broader Group route.

 

 

It's a bit different for customers eligible through the Core Group (as identified by the Department of Work and Pensions). If they were our customer on the qualifying date of 8 July 18, we'll make the payment regardless of if they've changed electricity supplier or moved home since.

Hope this is of interest. Let me know if anyone has any questions or needs more information as happy to help.

Malc

PS/ I'm out of the office for a few days after today so apologies in advance if I'm late replying. In the meantime, drop an email to our address at WebForumAdvisors@eonenergy.com and my colleague, Helena, will pick this up in my absence. Thanks all and have a good weekend.

Hello everyone and just a quick heads up about our 2018/19 Warm Home Discount scheme.

 

We’re planning to close the scheme to new applications on or around 31 January 2019.

 

After 18 January 19, customers won’t be able to ask for paper applications. Online applications will still be available until the official closure date. If anyone thinks they’re eligible and hasn’t applied please do so as soon as possible. Online is quickest.

 

All Broader Group (where customers need to apply) applications are handled on a first come, first served basis. Once we’ve reached our quota, we’ll close the scheme as above.

 

Most customers are likely to receive their payment within 3 months of their confirmation letter. The last payments will be made by 31 March 19.

 

Hope this is of interest. Please let me know if anyone needs more information as happy to help.

 

Have a good weekend.

Hope this is of interest.
