    • Not sure about the lease read through all the documents i have and couldnt find anything about parking. Contacted the management Office to get a copy sent to me. When i complained to them about the ticket they told me to appeal so they clearly don't care.      and yes it's a gated underground parking area with key fob entry. 
    • The coronavirus pandemic has thrown many countries into recession - but what exactly is it and how could it affect you? View the full article
    • Oh and before bed   Officially leaked statements about a PHE report claiming that a UK study will say there is little evidence of children transmitting Covid.   Leakers stats look impressive until you realise he's on Johnson's SAGE so makes you think - huh - hows that then when all the science I've seen says different, and there are a number of reports of spreads in schools across the world from schools that had opened.   Then, little as the information 'leaked' is, you see   "largest studies in the world on coronavirus in schools" and then "The study was carried out in 100 institutions in the UK and is expected to be published later this year. About 20,000 pupils and teachers in 100 schools across England were tested to monitor the spread of the disease up to the end of the summer term – which runs from April-July in Britain."   Then you click. That averages 200 pupils and staff per 'institution' checked We dont know what these institutions are, but I think over 200 is the average for infants schools. Other schools tend to be FAR larger. Did they test everyone at each institution, or just some ??? we don't know yet - they are choosing not to leak that - Wonder why?   We currently understand that younger children (pre teenage) seem to present few/less symptoms  (statistically) but large increases in teenager covid has been reported as lockdowns ease and they start to meet more.   I know my OH's grandson (mother a nurse) has remained at school in classes one third or less that normal, with the majority of kids having front line worker parents - so well aware of the discipline and hygiene necessary. We know the schools maintain distancing, monitoring and maintenance which would be IMPOSSIBLE in normal class sizes.   So in a lock down situation, with class sizes significantly lower than normal (highly aware front-line workers kids mainly), increased distancing and cleaning made possible by SIGNIFICANTLY smaller class sizes - Has maybe resulted in no great evidence of covid spread perhaps?   Well Whoopy do. Lets ramp the class sizes back up to 30+ and see what happens ..     Lets let the mail lead the way Coronavirus infection rates are rising in ALL age groups under 65, Public Health England data shows with biggest surge in under-fives which 'should be watched very carefully' https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8615423/Coronavirus-infection-rates-rising-age-groups-65-Public-Health-England-data-shows.html     and the ONS stats showing how similar the stats are (a statistically significant  difference can be very little actual difference)   https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/healthandsocialcare/conditionsanddiseases/articles/coronaviruscovid19infectionsinthecommunityinengland/july2020     Notes: These statistics refer to infections reported in the community, by which we mean private households. These figures exclude infections reported in hospitals, care homes or other institutional settings.  
    • i understand and agree you should write a formal letter of complaint about the email by royal mail.   i also think you should totally dispute the arrears balance, esp as it goes back so long   send them an sar and add to the text in it that you want statements/bills dating back to the gb energy a/c.
    • When you see the reports coming out that serco was involved from the earliest stages apparently to give expertise   and that resulted in 18 million plus people coming back into the UK untested from hotspots .. and then even the general advice to self isolate after they had travelled across the UK home being withdrawn in the run-up to the lock down   That went well says cummings

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi,

 

I've received a PCN today from Euro Car Parks as my car was parked at their York store for 3 hours 31 minutes a few days ago, time limit is 3 hours.

 

Yes, the car was there for that length of time,

though I will not be stating here or anywhere else who was driving the car at the time

(there are several people it could potentially be).

 

The driver of the car did do shopping there during the visit,

but did also do a few other things in and around the site of the car park during that time.

 

 

I'm not sure yet if receipts are available to back this up,

although 2 of the potential drivers share a "Morrisons More" loyalty card which will show purchases registered during that time period.

 

The letter I have (as keeper) is "demanding" £85, or £50 if paid within 14 days.

 

The letter shows 2 photographs of my registration plate, with typed text below stating the entry and exit times.

 

I've searched the forum for similar Morrisons time period exceeded messages and most are old enough for me not to be sure if they contain the best current advice, so would be grateful if anyone here could give the best course of action I should take please.

 

I have an address/email address for Morrisons head office customer services if I need to go down that route (any set text available for making the best case direct to Morrisons?).

 

If its relevant, I've seen some messages here giving differing views on which associations Euro Car Parks belongs to.

This letter clearly shows them claiming to be members of the BPA if that helps?

 

Thanks in advance!

Ignore euro car parks. APpeal to morrisons with your reciept or bank statement showing the transaction. Theyll cancel it. ALso, unless its a brand new store, none of them have planning permission to issue PCN's, or even registered with council as theyd have to pay council rates.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

 

 

If my advice helps you, click the star icon at the bottom of my post and feel free to say thanks

Is this the Morrisons in Acomb?

 

No, it's over to the East of the city centre, at Foss Islands Retail Park.

Can I just ask a further question.

 

 

Is it still the case, as I believe it was a couple of years ago, that technically these companies can only legally attempt to claim compensation for the amount of money they lost as a result of the car being parked in that space (i.e. if it's a free car park, they didn't lose any money as none was due to be paid at the time)?

 

Thanks

sorry but I disagree with the advise here

you need to do your homework

firstly appeal for any reason your like

dog got stuck in a queue at the toilets.

 

 

you are after the popla code to appeal.

 

 

that will cost them more money

you need to get down there and photo all the signs and their positions.

 

 

do not ignore it.

no, that was clarified by the Beavis decision. Basically the parking co doesnt have to show its costs or losses and may collect penalties for the breach of contract as long as these are "not unconscionable" and that ruled that £100 wasnt outside this meaning.

Also, Morrisons booted out all of the parking co's so I bet there is no contract between landowner and parking co. Complain to Morrisons and DO NOT contact ECP at all.

Great, thank you!

 

 

I have a draft letter to Morrisons typed up at home. I may post it here tonight to see if it's worded properly or if anyone would recommend alterations if that's OK...

You could ask them about their relationship with ECP at that store as part of your letter as you "thought" that you had read they had been given the heave-ho. They will then have to explain their position on this

Thanks. If Morrisons have ended their relationship with ECP, does that mean they no longer have any authority to get ECP to cancel charges (invoices) though?

Yes they do as they're issued on their property. Follow advice given and it will be sorted

Here is the text of the letter I intend to send to Morrisons today. Does anyone have any advice please on parts I should change/add/delete?

 

 

 

Hello,

 

On the 25th October I received a Parking Charge Notice from Euro Car Parks, relating to the 15th October 2016, when my car was parked at your York Foss Islands Retail Park store for a little over the 3 hour parking limit. We have bank statements showing that we did shop at this store that day.

 

Euro Car Parks have sent this speculative invoice to me as the owner of the car, I do not recall who the driver of the vehicle was on that particular occasion, and there are multiple named drivers on my car.

 

As a family (myself, my wife, and our daughter who is at University in York), we shop often at Morrisons. My wife and daughter have recently obtained a shared "Morrisons More" loyalty card and have been keen to try to add points to it by regularly shopping with you in both York and Leeds.

 

In the interests of customer service, I wish to request that you arrange for this Parking Charge Notice to be cancelled and issue confirmation to me that this has been done. I am aware that as the landowners you have the authority to do this. I am also a little confused about the relationship between yourselves and Euro Car Parks, as I have heard from informed sources that your business relationship with Euro Car Parks had ended, so I'd like to know under whose authority they are able to issue these speculative invoices.

 

I realise that Euro Car Parks claim that "a contract has been agreed and entered in to" by the action of a car being parked in your car park, however in the interests of safety neither I or my family are in the habit of agreeing to or entering in to contracts based on large swathes of text that are intended to be read whilst driving. Do you expect drivers to concentrate on the road and the many pedestrians in your car park when entering, or on reading large quantities of text instead?

 

I would like to remain a customer of yours, however it is no inconvenience whatsoever for my family to visit alternative supermarkets where we have never had issues with parking. Between us in Leeds and York we have plenty of options of where to shop. If you are compliant with my request, I assure this would be a one off request, as I will make sure all named drivers on my car are aware that my car is not to be left on these premises for longer than the allotted time limit.

 

Please find the following scans attached:

• The front page of the Parking Charge Notice

• My wife's "Morrisons More" loyalty card, linked to my daughters account with you.

• Bank statement showing the shopping transaction with you on 15th October (transaction went through on 17th October)

• Another recent statement showing a much larger transaction with yourselves at the same store. If we remain as customers of yours these are likely to be fairly regular large shops throughout my daughters 3 year stay in York.

• Photo 1 of the signage outside your car park. There are 3 signs here, not able to be read by a driver on entrance if they are to also drive safely.

 

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

IMHO that's too long?

Might get binned or stop reading by the end of the first para????

So you think I should just go with something basic along the lines of "I got a charge while I was shopping at your store, please cancel it or we shall take our business elsewhere" and pretty much leave it at that?

you are making a complaint about a parking co that Morrisons told its shareholders was no longer employed so clarity on this point and a cancellation please

 

 

rather than long winded story about what ECP claim,

that is not the issue,

nor is the interest of safety or anything else that you use to mitigate why you were there for a fornight rather than an hour.

 

 

It is all irrelevant so stop thinking you have to justify your actions,

just moan about ECP and politely ask that Morrisons get it cancelled.

Update: My letter to Morrisons (and possibly subsequent twitter rants in their direction) appears to have worked!

 

 

I have just received an email from Morrisons Customer Services stating that as a gesture of goodwill they have arranged with the parking company for the charge to be cancelled.

 

 

I have replied asking if I will receive confirmation of this cancellation from Euro Car Parks, awaiting reply.

 

 

Do I need to make sure that I do get something in writing from Euro, or should I now just sit back and do nothing?

 

 

Thanks for the help so far....

make sure that your email is kept, ideally copy it to a file somewhere else just in case the idiots keep pestering you. For the moment let them write to you and tell you the matter is closed. If they dont confirm this then you could ask them for a POPLA code in a month's time, that will hack them off.

Am I only able to get a POPLA code if I'd had an appeal rejected? I haven't appealed to Euro yet as I went down the Morrisons route first. If that hadn't been succesful I was going to put an appeal in before the time limit for doing that expired.

I know,

the point being is that if ECP dont send you the letter cancelling

then they will have to offer this service and if that happens they will have to pay POPLA a fee just to admit the charge was cancelled by their superiors and there is nothing they can add to that.

 

This is all about making them do the work at their expense rather than you chasing them so they can then email you for free.

 

 

Sod that, make them post you a written letter in their own good time or suffer the consequences
