    • Hey,   so just received an email from CRS. Saying I have to prove I cancelled...yawn. Bearing in mind this is way over a month ago I sent them a letter! shall I just block them now? Not even respond?   this is regarding gymetc and I joined their gym online...   thanks!
    • What does it actually mean when some  one says" for clarity" you mean in your opinion really dont you?   HB Thanks, girl done well.   Acres of text to get through, are you sure I have not come across you before. Your addiction to point scoring is V familiar.   Anyway lets see if there is anything I have not cleared up already.   You say  "'ll just answer this for clarity (not for an argument). This applies to SDs made in a Magistrates' Court in order to set aside aconviction where the defendant was not aware of the proceedings."   So much for clarity. Below is what the section says information; and (b)within 21 days of that date the declaration is served on the [F1designated officer for the court], without prejudice to the validity of the information, the summons and all subsequent proceedings shall be void.   Notice "Shall be void. not set asidIf I am going to just be correcting basic reading i am not goiong tp conti   "When a person comes before a court to make such a Statutory Declaration the court must hear it if it is made within 21 days of the defendant learning of the conviction."   Noope The regulation says the court cannot interfere with the making of a SD,again completely different   Yes if it is, but unless the SD was made within 21 days of the action they are entitled to question it. As they do in the form you reproduced by asking how the defendant knew about the case.                         Said this alreay.   To answer your next paragraph, the court will not accept a lie, if there is one, they will have the option to increase the time however I doubt they would, or do you think they would just extend it? This is the test, of course.   Again you say SET ASSIDE, it isn't, the new case cannot be started if the old one is still pending of course.   Now having demonstrated your lack of knowledge. I shall move on. Your abstinence from posting is appreciated, either way, I will have you on ignore. Nothing personal I just dont think there is anything you can tell me.   One more thing the result does not compete with anything I have actually said, and everything I have said is correct, in relation to the legislation.                
    • Here is the reply from POPLA after I complained to its chief assessor -- completely rubbish!   ---   Your complaint about POPLA   Thank you for your email, which was passed to me by the POPLA team as I am responsible for responding to complaints.   I note from your correspondence that you are unhappy with the decision reached by the assessor in your appeal against Parking Eye.     POPLA is an impartial and independent appeals service and we do not act either for the parking operator or the appellant. It is important to explain that it is not our remit to source evidence and documents from either party in support of their submission and our decisions are based on the evidence received from both parties at the time of the appeal. We cannot consider further evidence after the appeal has been completed.   You have advised that the decision issued to you on 29 October 2019 does not address the crucial points of your rebuttal.   You have reiterated your original grounds of appeal. For clarity, I have addressed each point as follows.   Regarding grace periods.   While section 13 of the British Parking Association Code of Practice stipulates that a minimum grace period should be allowed, the grace period is only applicable in car parks are required. In this car park, the entrance signs states that the site is for permit holders and service vehicles only, as such, a grace period is not applicable in this instance. You would have been aware that you did not have a permit on entering the site and I am satisfied that the assessor is correct in determining that the six minutes that you were on the site was not a reasonable period.   You have advised that there is no evidence of landowner authority and have provided a quote from another POPLA decision.   POPLA deals with appeals on a case by case basis and as such, any external factors such as other similar parking contraventions or appeals have no impact on our decision making.   I have reviewed the assessor’s comments relating to this ground of appeal and also the document provided by the operator and I am satisfied that the assessor has correctly stated that the operator has the relevant authority to issue PCN’s on this site.   You advise that no contract was formed between the driver and the operator.   The assessor has advised that the signage on the site makes the terms and conditions of the car park clear which, after reviewing the images of the signs provided, I agree with. By choosing to remain on the site, you have accepted the terms and conditions of this contract and by remaining on site for six minutes without a permit, the terms and conditions were breached.   After reviewing the assessor’s decision, I am satisfied that the outcome reached is correct As POPLA is a one-stage process, there is no opportunity for you to appeal the decision.   As our involvement in your appeal has now concluded you may wish to pursue matters further. For independent legal advice, please contact Citizens Advice at: www.citizensadvice.org.uk or call 0345 404 05 06 (English) or 0345 404 0505 (Welsh).   In closing, I am sorry that your experience of using our service has not been positive. We have reached the end of our process and my response now concludes our complaints procedure. I trust you will appreciate that there will be no further review of your complaint and it will not be appropriate for us to respond to any further correspondence on this matter.   Yours sincerely Paul Garrity POPLA Complaints Team
    • Thanks for clearing that up Homer.  I was  in the middle of writing what DX100 uk has just said. I notice that no questions have yet been answered from the Stickies posted on either thread. We will need some info in order to  counteract any stpidity by Link to try Court. The PCNs can be produced later under CPR regs. so photos of the car park with the notices at the entrance, around the carpark itself-especially any that are different as well as the T&Cs on the payment meter if there is one would be a help. As would the reason for the ticket. In addition, you could look up the local Council website on planning permissions to see if Link have ever applied for permission to erect NOtices and ANPR cameras within the car park. This would come under Town and Country [Advertisements] Regulations. And if you have any recent PCN remiders from Link that might help a little.

Have received in the post today a PCN from Parking Eye for over-staying in a car park at a retail park in Dewsbury. Details as follows:

 

Date of the infringement: 31 August 2016

 

Date on the NTK: 6 September 2016

 

Date received: 10 September 2016

 

Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? Yes

 

Is there any photographic evidence of the event? The letter includes 2 time-stamped photos of my car registration plate entering and leaving the car park.

 

Have you appealed? Not yet - wanted to get advice from here first.

 

Have you had a response? See above

Who is the parking company? Parking Eye

 

I am aware that the advice on dealing with these PCNs has changed from the "ignore it, they have no legal standing" advice of previous years so wanted to get some advice on how best to respond.

 

I take it I need to appeal to Parking Eye, which will naturally be rejected, and then to POPLA?

 

On what grounds is it best to appeal? I did overstay in the car park by about 30 minutes (though tbh I can honestly say I have parked in that car park many times and never noticed the signs stating the time limit etc - am guessing they are probably high up (above eye level) on lampposts as that seems the favourite place to put them these days) basically because the appointments we had (with the bank and then in the mobile phone shop) took longer than expected.

 

The advice on the appeals and complaints procedure on the reverse of the letter says to include things like store receipts or proof of purchases etc. Do I include the store receipt from the mobile phone shop? So I bother the staff member we had an appointment with at the bank and ask her to send me confirmation of our appointment time etc? :/

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

how long were you there and how long is the allowed parking period?

 

 

Commonly, planning permission is granted for the builing of the development with a customer parking period set at 2 or 3 hours.

 

 

The developers cannot change this and nor can the parking co but they often do as it it the only way they can make money from a free car park.

 

Check with the local council, if the development is a recent one it may well be on their planning portal. If not, you will have to ask the planning dept about the application and consent.

 

 

Whilst you have thir attention ask them about planning permission for the signage and cameras under the advertising hoardings regs of the Town and Country Planning Act 2007.

 

 

They must have pp or they are committing a criminal offenec and that means no contract can ever be formed.

 

when we know about the above we will suggest a form of words to make an appeal to PE and then POPLA if necessary. if they are in the wrong they will cancel the demand rather than risk it becoming public knowledge and they have to pay back every penny they have taken fo the other unfortunates.

Hi all,

 

Really hoping someone can help me out with some advice.

 

A few months back my husband and I parked in a car park on a retail park in Dewsbury and subsequently received a PCN from Parking Eye for over-staying (by a whopping 20 minutes).

 

 

I didn't submit a POPLA appeal at the time because I'd never done one before and I wasn't sure on what grounds I should appeal

(I admit we over-stayed but I didn't see signage at the time and don't consider a 20 minute over-stay to warrant a large fine).

 

 

I did post on here asking for advice but didn't get any response and then the time ran out for submitting an appeal.

 

I was assuming they would send a few chasing letters and then let the matter drop, as these companies have done in the past, but

 

 

I have now received a County Court claim form so it seems they intend to pursue this.

 

I fully intend to fight this, as I am not going to bullied into paying these cowboys £175 just because we were delayed getting back to the car on our shopping trip.

 

Can anyone please advise me on what I need to include in my defence and how best to fight this?

 

Thanks in advance....

 

The particulars of the claim state:

 

1.Claim for monies outstanding from the defendant, as registered keeper, in relation to a Parking Charge, issues 06/09/16, for parking on private land in breach of the terms and conditions (the contract).

 

 

ParkingEye's automated number plate recognition system, monitoring Rishworth Centre Retail Park (1), Dewsbury, Railway Street, Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, WF12 8EQ,

 

 

captured vehicle [my reg] entering and leaving the car park, overstaying the max stay time.

 

 

The signage, clearly displayed at the entrance to and throughout the car park, states that this is private land, is managed by ParkingEye Ltd, and is a max stay site, along with other T+Cs by which those who park on site agreed to be bound.

 

 

In accordance with the T+Cs set out in the signage, the Parking Charge became payable.

Notice under the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 has been given under Sch 4, making the keeper liable. The claim is in reference to Parking Charge(s) [xxxxxxxxxxx]

Not yet, no. I wanted to ask for some advice first.

 

The form says I have 14 days from day of service to respond. So I have until 10 December.

 

If I respond only to acknowledge the claim, how long do I then have to file a defence? Is it 28 days?

 

Thanks for your response. :)

Is the place near to you,

if so get down there an photograph the entrance to the land from the public highway.

Make a note of the size and position of any signs that you see, including how big the font size is.

 

 

You are supposed to be able to read the small print from the drivers seat of a car whilst going past it for the contract to be considered to be enforceable

but some judges say that you are expected to wander about the car park looking at all of the signs

so detail is needed to make it clear whether they were easily visible under the conditions you were faced with at the time (ie, night, heavy rain, heavy traffic etc)

 

Also, check with the local council whether PE have planning permission for their signage.

If they dont, keep this quiet for the moment and be prepared to include this information in your evidence bundle.

 

 

Reason I say dont reveal this yet is becasue the buggers will apply fro retrospective permission and turn their criminal offence into a binding contract but if they only have a fortnights notice you intend to use this against them they wont have time to do the dirty on you.

 

Now as the site is a retail park they more than likely have a contract with the developer

but it is worth doinga CPR 31.14 discovery request to see who their contract is with as it may be a managing agent and that means they are unlikely to have the correct permissions. read about this iin other threads.

Thank you.

I did go back and take some pictures a few weeks back to check what the signage is.

The one at the entrance is up on a lampost and under a tree

- there is no way you can properly read it as you are turning into the entrance.

 

 

The ones throughout the car park are also high up on lamp posts and contain a section of *very* small smallprint

- the one nearest to where I parked is so high up that even when standing right under it you can't read the small print.

 

Sign at entrance:

 

Signs throughout car park:

 

Sign nearest to where I parked:

 

Photo taken standing as close as it's possible to get to the sign nearest to where I parked:

 

I will look into the planning permission and contract issues. Thanks so much for your help.

 

Am I understanding correctly that my only real chance of defending this is proving that they did something wrong (signage not correct, no planning permission, contracts not correct etc)

and that an argument of "£100 charge for overstaying for 20 minutes is excessive and unjustifiable" etc will do no good?

so, how big are the signs- how big is the font size on the signs.

You need to take a tape measure with you.

 

Your only defence at the moment is inadequate signage

so you had better be able to show that to anyone passing it that it isnt obvious what it is about.

 

We need to see very clear images of the signs,

especially any that are different in wording, size, colour etc.

 

PE will be telling the court there are 32 signs at least 2 metres across and without your photos and measurements they will be believed.

 

On the plus side the sign at the entrance refer to other terms and conditions that are not on that sign.

This means that the sign isnt an offer of a contract but an invitation to treat so read up on that as well.

 

parking co's have been defeated on several occasions over such things but you had better understand the difference beween them before you tell a judge that this isnt a contract and you dont ahve to accept the small print offered elsewhere.

 

So, not a contractual offer and no planning permission... things are looking up for you

Am at a loss as to what to do over this claim.

 

 

On principal I hate the thought of paying them anything because it's all just a massive [problem] and they make their money by bullying people.

 

 

from the information on this thread it seems the court will likely uphold their ridiculous claim for £175 for an overstay of only 20 mins and my only way out of it is to argue legal technicalities to do with the exact size and placement of signage and the difference between offer of contract and invitation to treat.

 

 

I really don't have either the time or the legal knowledge to be feel confident in arguing the case on this basis.

 

Can anyone tell me,

if I do defend the claim,

what's the worst possible outcome?

 

 

If I defend and it doesn't go my way, judge agrees with them, what does that mean?

Does it cost me more?

Do I have to pay their legal fees too?

Do I get a CCJ against me?

 

I'm feeling like I'm going to have to pay just to make this go away. :(

you'll get a CCJ by default if you don't defend

then go pay it and get fleeced.

I do genuinely appreciate people offering help and advice but wow, that's a bit harsh.

 

You obviously all have lots of experience of this but I have NONE so questions like

"If I defend and lose is it going to cost me even more money?" are really important ones for me.

 

I literally haven't had a day spare in the past 2 weeks to drive over there and measure the signs.

I am not confident that I will be able, in the next 2 weeks, to even understand

- let alone argue in court

- the difference between offer of contract and invitation to treat.

 

 

Can you not see why I am stressed and scared over this and struggling to understand if I even have a chance of winning this or if defending it is going to make things worse and end up with me having a CCJ against me?

Defending will NOT make things worse, but you need to get all of the evidence first.

 

They prey on people like like you as they know you're easy money.

 

The fact that you were shopping on this site, and undoubtedly have receipts for purchases from retail outlets, speaks volumes of just how much the stores value your custom by using cowboy parking companies.

I doubt I still have receipts from that shopping trip as it was months ago.

Will that make a difference in court?

 

Am trying to read around on the threads on here to get some understanding of how to go about defending this but there's a lot of jargon that I don't understand and I keep coming up with more questions..

. e.g. will it go against me with the judge because I didn't respond to the original PCN/do a POPLA appeal? (I did post on here at the time asking for advice as to on what grounds I should do the POPLA appeal but I didn't get a response and the deadline for appealing ran out)?

 

I've tried googling for information on invitation to treat

- as that (and sign placement/size etc) seems to be my only avenues to defend the case

- and I'm struggling to make sense of it.

 

 

I also can't find any information online as to whether there are specific requirements regarding size and placement of signs that the parking companies have to abide by.

.. so does it come down to me arguing that the signage is insufficient and them arguing it is sufficient and the judge decides who he agrees with?

if you pay the CCJ within 28days IF they succeed it wont get registered on your file.

so don't worry there.

 

as for court, it might not get there

defending wont make things worse for you

 

is there not a friend neighbour mate or someone that can go take some for you?

yes it must be stressful not having the time to do things away from work hours etc

 

but its worth a shot, to defend

Thank you for the reassurance.

 

 

I will try and find time to drive over there tomorrow.

My husband works away during the week so Mon-Fri I am looking after 2 kids alone and have to fit everything in around school runs and appointments and after-school clubs and PTA meetings and lord knows what else..

. and this time of year is crazy busy with school and family and I've had things happening every weekend day for the past few weekends!

 

Okay. So I am going to defend.

I'm going to go online and do the AOS and that will give me a further 2 weeks to submit my defence, yes?

Then I'm going to go and take measurement photos of the signs tomorrow.

 

If anyone can help me out with how to word my defence

- especially e.g. that the lack of T&Cs on the sign at the entrance constitutes invitation to treat rather than offer of contract, I would be eternally grateful.

 

Thank you so much for answering my worries and reassuring me.

Had a nightmare trying to register on the site earlier... it would give me an account number and then, instead of going back to the main page, it would spool and spool and fail to load and then say the website was unavailable! Argh!

 

Got it sorted now though. Now just need to put together my defence.

 

Can I ask... are there actually any standards/requirements for signage that the car park companies are supposed to adhere to? Or does it come down to the judge's opinion on whether the signage (size and placement etc) is sufficient?

Is it worth mentioning in my defence that, as well as the size and placement of the signs, the small print t&cs on the sign nearest where I parked is so small it's impossible to read it even when standing right under the sign? Surely I can't be deemed to have agreed to T&Cs I can't even read?

Thanks hugely for all your help and for merging the threads.

Not sure why I didn't get the notification of the original reply.

 

I will send off the CPR 31:14 asap.

 

Should I try and find out about planning permission myself before mentioning that though?

It was mentioned above that otherwise they might apply for retrospective PP?

Where do I even look to find out about planning permission, the council?

 

Do you know where I can find details of the strict sign design requirements, so I can assess these signs against them?

 

Sorry if I am asking stupid/obvious questions... this is all new to me!

 

I swear I used to be a reasonably intelligent person before I had small people to constantly run around after...

 

I've obviously misunderstood the claim form guidance notes because from reading it I understood AOS to be only if you were acknowledging and want time to submit defence.

 

It doesn't say you can AOS and then have time to pay...

it says if you want to agree with the claim and need time to pay you have to submit form N9A.

 

Sorry I am so rubbish at this. Your help and support is hugely appreciated.

 

Ah, I've just managed a bit of googling to find out how to search planning permission registers and it looks like they do have planning permission for "Erection of signs" (doesn't say how many or where) granted in May 2014.
