PCN - incorrect contravention location - Please help 2 days left!!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, i've been trying to register to other forums (more than 14 days!!) but cant even register, thank this website i was able to register and post for help!!


I have a PCN here with correct picture and vehicle registration number, but the contravention address is not printed clearly, cannot even read it. The stated junction does not exist; Colney Hatch Lane with Alexandra Road.


The juniction with Colney Hatch Lane is Alexandra PARK road, not Alexandra Road. Although Alexadra Road exists near Colny Hatch Lane, it is not a junction with it.


google maps coords: 51.603039, -0.142909 (this is Alexandra Road, Colney Hatch Lane is near it but not a junction).


I don't have permission to post links or images as i'm new here, but basically on the letter the only part of the location is readable is Colney Hatch Lane j/w Alexandra £$£$@£%^$%. That last part is jumbled up like that, also no postcode. The online details held also states Alexandra Road N10, which is wrong.


Do i have grounds for this? i believe i do with the incorrect location but i don't know how to word it. I have like 2 days left (thanks to the other forums). Many thanks.

First, If you can do it in time, I would check with the council what the official name of "Alexandra Park Road" is, and that it is distinct from "Alexandra Road". There will be a department called Highways or something who will have maps and so on, who will be able to tell you.


Then appeal on the basis that there has been an impropriety. Explain what you have said here, and that no such location exists.


I'm not sure how this will pan out, but you have a decent chance.

thanks guys for replying so quick!!



I totally missed that one!! thanks.



I didn't have time to go to the council or phone them up, but i found some details from their website:


"The register lists all streets within Haringey, who is responsible for maintaining them and whether the road has been adopted or not."


When i search for "Alexandra Road", this is the list returned: (i've only copied the ones with N10)

Search with "Alexandra Park Road":

Well, with the first image, Grosvenor Rd connects with Alexandra PARK road (coords 51.598833, -0.137501) if thats what the search result is referring to (aarrggg!!), it is route B106 but not stated in the search (a bonus?).


I have never challenged a pcn so how would i word it? What would be gounds for appealing be? something like this at the end will be ok? or a bit overkill? Found this on the net:


Should you reject my appeal please be warned that i will constitute any further unwanted contact as harassment and will sue as per Ferguson v British Gas Trading Ltd [2009] EWCA Civ 46 (10 February 2009) , Roberts v Bank of Scotland Plc (Rev 1) [2013] EWCA Civ 882 (11 June 2013) and Bank of Scotland v Johnson (Rev 1) [2013] EWCA Civ 982 (19 June 2013).

Take a screen shot.


Forget the harassment rubbish.


Appeal on the basis that the contravention did not occur in Alexandra Road as alleged on the pcn

Ditto what Michael said about the harassment stuff. Totally counter-productive.


When you write an appeal, it doesn't have to be anything complicated or legal. Just explain in plain English you received a PCN in xxxx. However the PCN gives the street name as xxx which is in a different location. Therefore, the PCN is invalid - and please would they cancel it.


Just a letter along those lines, quoting the PCN number and your name and address.

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

      Do you have a mortage arears claim to make? Then post your story on the forum here

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
