    • I think it will be very helpful to let people know more detail about these debts. Who is the original creditor? How much was the debt for? When was the debt incurred? When did you last make any payment or acknowledgement of the debt
    • Hello and welcome to CAG. Thank you for the information, it will help the guys to advise you. Please don't do anything until they've had a look and possibly asked questions.   While  you're waiting, you have other VCS airport threads for Liverpool and Southend, possibly others. It would be worth a read to understand how they operate.   Best, HB
    • What part of never use email Never communicate with a powerless dca hasnt been understood?   If you want to do anything which you should as it also protects your backdoor if the debt were to be sold and a DCA were to litigate as it stands..send our sb letter from the debt collection section of our library   Thats goes to the oc as they still own the debt
    • Good afternoon - I've received a parking charge notice from VCS - grateful for any advice - do I ignore/appeal? Can VCS enforce the restricted zone in this way, covered under bylaws (I think)?   Driver didn't notice signage, vehicle wasn't actually stopped by double red lines (as pictured)   1 Date of the infringement 25/11/19 2 Date on the NTK 29/11/19 3 Date received 4/12/19 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? No 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Yes 6 Have you appealed? No 7 Who is the parking company? Vehicle Control Services (VCS) 8. Where exactly Bristol Airport - on "privately operated access roads", just outside car park barrier, not car park itself - stopped for 5 seconds to pick someone up, didn't pick them up and drove away when the camera van arrived. Operate under IAS   Thanks in advance!  
    • Hi,    Thanks for any advice I receive in advance.    If I am honest I haven't really cared about my credit file until recently and am just looking for some advice after signing up. I was in a stupid financial position a few years back, i was a fairly typical teenager who didn't care about debt etc but fortunately I have grown up and am looking to improve this.    I have three defaults on my credit file, from February 2014, June 2014 and May 2015.    My question is about what happens when these are removed. I understand that the defaults are removed after 6 years?   But let's take the February 2014 one as an example. In a couple of months time the 6 years will be up on this. At the moment on my credit file it has a default for every single month since that date. In February, does the whole thing get removed or just the first "little red default". So will it actually take 6 years for all these defaults to come off or does the whole debt get removed?   Thanks S

Premier Park ANPR PCN BW PAP letter - for Parking and Leaving Markham Retail Park

Recommended Posts

I have received a PCN from Premier Park at the Markham Retail Park from November 2017 for Parking and Leaving Site.

 

I'd gone to Pizza Hut and my son had nipped into JYSK.

I received a letter a week later.

At no point did an attendant speak to me (not sure there was one) and all I got was a letter with a couple of photographs on it.

 

I responded to their first letter explaining what I had done and that their claim was erroneous and without merit.

Got a reply a week ago saying my appeal had been rejected.

Just replied to that saying that if they write to me again (unless notifying me its been rescinded) I will consider it harassment.

 

Quiet prepared to go all the way with this.

I take it I just ignore everything from now on unless its from a lawyer or court?

 

Thanks in advance.

For future reference come and ask for advice first rather than putting your foot in it by responding to their letter,

you have now made most of the POFA irrelevant

whereas if you had said nothing at the time you would be walking all over them when they started making demands.

 

As it is a different company then you can do something useful,

get photographs of all of the signs at the retail site that are anything to do with parking.

need to see the letter you got a week later to determine if they have any right to claim from anyone so no need to think about paying up yet.

 

Also no judge will think that leaving the site is provable, what do the employees of the parking co do? follow everyone around and break the DPA and the requirements of registration for the company and individual with the SIA or justy make thigs up.

 

However, anyone reading this post should learn something

- dont be your own worst enemy by writing to these muppets and tell them that you did do anything.

It must be understood, they have no legal way of collecting any evidence so whatever they say on the matter is irrelevent, only YOU can drop yourselves in it so dont.

 

In the OP's case there is no compulsion for all of the occupants to consider the contract so if your son went to a shop and that was the purpose of this visit then that is enough and the driver is acting as the "servant" otherwise no taxi co could even enter the land and as they dont have a bloke on a barrier to quiz people.

Also VCS v Ibbotson says that such a restriction is nonsense and unenforceable

Hi

My opinion only! This site is in Chesterfield (found after some searching). Markham Retail Park is on one side and Ravenside is the other. One side has JYSK as well as SCS. The other side has HobbyCraft, B&M and many others. The HobbyCraft site is controlled by Euro Car Parks and the JYSK is controlled by Premier.

 

The signs on the approach indicate the turning into Markham retail Park but nothing else. It doesn't say that the site on the other side is NOT part of the same retail park. In fact, there is signage further along the Markham Road and at the 'proper' entrance to Ravenside so how is the average member of the public expected to know.

 

The other thing is the fact that your son did use the store on the site. What were you expected to do? Go with him? Stay in the car? I think it's perfectly reasonable to walk elsewhere to get something to eat.


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

I’m going to copy the letter tomorrow and up load it (after redacting) and fill in the form in the link too.

 

In a way I had to admit to being on the site as ‘my” car is in fact a company car and they wanted to deduct the charge from my wages so I fezzed up.

 

Thanks for your replies so far.

Dear Sir/ Madam,

I am writing to formally challenge the above Parking Charge Notice.

 

On 27 Nov 2017 my vehicle was issued with a Parking Charge Notice for the reason of Parking and leaving site.

 

In accordance with the Road Traffic Act 1991, my challenge is on the basis that the contravention did not occur. I parked my car inside an allocated parking bay and left the car park approximately an hour later. I took my son for a birthday lunch at Pizza Hut and at no point did I leave the site.

 

For this reason I look forward to receiving notification within 28 days that the Parking Charge Notice has been cancelled.

 

Yours faithfully,"

Dear Sir/ Madam,

I am writing in response to your letter dated 22nd January 2018 ref Parking Charge Notice.

For this reason I look forward to receiving notification within 28 days that the Parking Charge Notice has been cancelled. If I receive any future communication aside from a withdrawal letter from either yourselfs or your agents I will be regard it as harassment.

Another vague opinion!

 

The signage on site does not differentiate between driver and passenger. The passenger used the store on site so (IMOP) that would negate the signage.

 

PP also state that Markham Retail Park have no option to intervene in parking matters. If that is the case, who is the landowner? I would imagine that JYSK may be able to inform you of who the landowner is OR PP is lying and stores CAN intervene on behalf of their customers. The original NTK didn't show any information about PoFA 2012. Was there something on the reverse?

 

You have done yourself no favours by naming yourself as the driver but I do understand the reasons behind it as it was a company car. I would ask your bosses to consider passing any NTK over to you and not to reply to any PRIVATE parking company in the future.

 

IF it is the case that the first letter has not mentioned PoFA 2012 then they shouldn't be allowed to rely on it in any subsequent letters.

OK your response now marks you down as a mug for several reasons.

 

Using the term "without prejudice" in an inappropriate place and quoting the RTA when it doesnt apply are the 2 that will leap out at them.

You also then continued to shot yourself in the other foot by offering a mitigation when all this does is drop you in it deeper.

 

Now you have to read up on contract law as it is used in parking to start to understand why they dont have a claim.

You have been pointed to a couple of good cases that are relevant and also to info on the signage.

 

If the land on the development is contiguous (owend by the same entity) then you havent left it, even if these bandits dont operate in the other car park.

That is one of the reasons they are trying to chisel you out of money but that will also be part of their undoing.

 

You will be complaining to the landlord when this is over an they are usually disinterested in such matters but wont want to lose tenants and tenants need customers but no-one needs parking cowboys so it will make a difference if you word that letter correctly

Thanks for the reply.

 

I’m confused, which cases have I been pointed to?

 

Something I’ve just thought of.

 

The photographs are taken by a person on site, so shouldn’t that person have tried to stop me from “leaving” the site or at least inform me that I was leaving?

VCS v Ibbotson is the leading persuasive case for this.

 

What you say about the person with the camers is called "mitigating your losses"

 

so yes, they are obliged to tell you but then if they did how are they going to rip you off?

 

The point about this is that it is rarely raised in an appeal and when it is the parking co's ignore it and just state that you entered a contract as though their word is the final arbiter on the law.

 

Thanks for the reply.

I received this yesterday (great timing the dad after my dad passed away).

 

I take it I just ignore it?

 

in fact what options do I have?

 

Sorry I just don't have the capacity or time right now to spend any time on this.

Continue to ignore.

DRP are just another "step in the chain" of trying to scare you into paying / entering into "letter tennis" with them.

For instance, their language is debatable.

 

a) They say "If we don't hear from you, we'll take it to mean you agree you are liable for it". THEY may take it to mean that, but YOU don't have to, and a court likely won't, either! (as they can't impose a new unilateral contract or obligation).

 

b) They quote the Beavis case. They say "The Supreme Court ruled the parking charge was lawful".

This is indeed true, the Supreme Court ruled THAT specific parking charge lawful....... that doesn't mean the Supreme Court ruled ALL parking charges lawful, only those that arise with the same circumstances. If you can show different circumstances, it can be argued that the Beavis ruling then doesn't automatically make THAT parking charge lawful ....

 

I bet some of the regulars here will be able to tell you what letters to expect, and within what timescale.

When they are exposed as a predictable sequence of events threatening "I'll huff, and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house down", they'll become a lot less scary.
