Hi and welcome.

Can you lay out the reasons why you or the driver got the tickets.

 

Were they windscreen tickets?

Was this at night?

Were there any signs at the entrance to the car park?

Did you stay at the Travelodge?

 

I have looked on Google and it seems the pictures show no sign at the entrance and the three signs I could see are not lit.

 

It seems strange that PPM are using PoFA as most members of the IPC don't bother.


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

From what I recall the entrance as you turn in has no signage and the access road serves more than one place so it is difficult to determine where the small signs on the walls further along actually refer to.

 

This should be the main point of your defence along with a lack of planning permission for the signage (check with council).

 

As you didnt respond to the original notices it may well be possible that they are not compliant with the POFA to create a keeper liability so we would need to see them to help us form an opinion on this.

 

 

However, ignoring everything can get the backs up of judges as they dont like to listen to cases where there is an altenative disputes resolution procedure that hasnt been used.

 

 

Tell us everything about the event and we will do our best

AUGUST

Early evening of 22/08/16 Partner moved car to area to rear of hotel to unload 3 children and luggage whilst I was at reception.

 

 

The car of which I am the registered keeper was parked in an area to the rear of the hotel on an unmarked block paved area.

 

23/08/16 Approx. 18:00 discovered 2 x PCN’s (Dated 22/08/16 & 23/08/16) affixed to windscreen of vehicle.

 

SEPTEMBER

 

Received 2 x Notice to Keepers (dated 24th September 2016 & 25th September 2016)

07/11/16 - I sent a letter disputing the debt and asking for a letter compliant with Practice Direction Protocols.

 

Letter received from Gladstones dated 21st November 2016 saying Annex A is no longer part of the practice direction

 

DECEMBER

as they are relying on the POFA then the maximum they can ask for is the £100 and not £150 per event.

They know this but hope that you dont and likewise the judge isnt au fait with the details of the POFA.

 

Also the wording of the signage should make it clear whether the money is due as a contractual charge or for breach of contract.

 

 

The summons says for parking charges so that means it is a contractual sum.

the signage should then say

" by parking here you agree to pay some bandit £100 if therse conditions are not met"

I bet they have the 2 confused so you can make mileage of this and if the judge is on the ball you will win just on this point.

 

 

However, if the signs say

"permit holders only"

then any other parking is prohibitive and that is not a contracual matter.

 

 

Again we dont know this until we see the signs that make the offer.

 

As for what you were doing,

it is totally irrelevant so dont waste any time explaining any of that.

You are being sued as the keeper.

 

As for Gladdys refusing to show their client has a cause for action and locus standi you should explain that they have failed to do this and therfore it is not possible to offer a proper defence as they refuse to produce this evidence of a right to claim and therefore you ask that the claim be struck out under CPR 16.4 and ask for full costs recovery under CPR 27 if the matter does proceed to a hearing.

I took a photo of the sign at the time the PCNs were issued but it is not great quality and difficult to read. I have found an almost identical sign online and crossed out the only differences between the 2.

then a simple defence is that

 

 

1.the claimant has not shown a cause for action nor locus standi

 

 

2. the signage is not a contractual offer but one of prohibition and therefore only the landowner may claim for damages for trespass.

1. The claimant has not shown a cause for action nor locus standi.

 

2. The signage is not a contractual offer but one of prohibition and therefore only the landowner may claim for damages for trespass.

 

3. The claimant has failed to show a cause for action by failing to*respond to a CPR 31.14 which was sent on the 23rd December 2016.

this defence will make them now put up or shut up

 

You need to do your homework now regarding position, size and wording of signage.

Measurements useful as far as how far from public highway signs are,

 

can they be read BEFORE you enter the private land they are applicable to,

 

how big are the signs,

 

how high up are they,

can they be read from the drivers seat of a moving car etc.

 

Content of the signs also important,

 

do they offer a contract or are they prohibitive?

 

Is the money claimed a contractual condition, breach of contract or just a penalty or deterrent?

Hi all

 

I have received an email from Gladdys with a 19 page witness statement attached.

 

Apart from preparing myself to be ready to appear next week in Court is there anything i need to send to the courts and to the claimant?

 

I was planning on working on it at the weekend but now wondering if there is any thing that i need to send in to court prior to the hearing.

 

Thanks

Pip
