NCP/BW ANPR PCN Claimform - double dipping - Ipswich Tacket Street, Ipswich IP4 1AU


Recommended Posts

Where to start?

Last year I had a PCN from NCP regarding allegedly parking in Tacket Street car park, Ipswich.

I could have sworn I appealed but on checking my email outbox, it seems the appeal was never sent!

 

having had a few threatening letters from BW Legal about the matter,

last week some paperwork from the court came through the door and they (BW Legal) have issued proceedings against me on behalf of NCP.

It was issued on 09/08/18 and today I have been online and submitted acknowledgement of service.

 

The question, how do I proceed with this?

Bearing in mind I failed to appeal to NCP and POPLA.

 

They are saying on 28/08/17 I committed a parking contravention, no mention of what contravention or the time it was alleged to have taken place.

 

I had driven in to the car park, dropped off my step daughter and her friend and then returned roughly 30 minutes later to collect them.

They have ANPR images of my vehicle entering and leaving, but not of leaving the first time or re entering later.

I dropped them off, returned home quickly then returned to collect them.

 

I'll try and post copies of the paperwork when I get home.

The claim is signed by BW Legal as opposed to an individual.

 

So, best way to proceed with this?

defence will be an outline of what you want to rely on so for example no breach of contract so no cause for action by claimant

 

You can then add that there were separate 2 parking events and claimant were made aware of this. You then lay it on with a trowel in your witness statement should they continue.

 

 

In the meanwhile you ask then for all of your personal data under the GDPR and make it quite specific that you wnat them to provide the images taken at ( give times of both entries/exits or any CCTV that shows your vehicle remained there for the intervening time.

 

 

In the menawhile dig up anything that shows your vehicle was elsewhere so any receipt/witness that you were likely to be somewhere else will do. parking co are unlikely to actually chanllenge a receipt form a store 20 miles away in court but are likely to say before that time that you could have left your car there and gone on the bus!

 

 

 

Such assertions get short shrift but they do it to get you to fold and pay up without actually attending the hearing. dont feorget, their lawyers conveniently forget that they have a duty to the courts and will try and grab money when they know it isnt owed as they get to keep a bigger slice. They still charge for their services and will push both parties for their own ends but generally drop the matter at the last moment hoping you dont get an order for unreasonable behaviour costs

Little update, I've still to file my defence, this will be done over the weekend as the 33 days ends on Tuesday.

 

I've had a reply from BW regarding cpr request.

They've supplied copies of notices from NCP, and it seems I did lodge an appeal with NCP which they of course refused.

 

They haven't provided anything regarding planning permission for the signs and have refused to let me see a contract.

Their words being that "I am not obliged sight of the contract and their client will not provide me with a copy".

simple, they know they are onto a loser and hope that you waver and agree to apy them something. At this point they dotn care how much as their reputaion as the parking worlds second worst solicitors is in danger of outdoing Gladdys for top spot. they will also gausge how scared you are when you speak to them so they can set their tariff accordigly.

 

They are only aprtially correct about the non production of documents because thsi would be true for the small claims track but that hansnt been decided yet. for example, you may have a disability discrimiantion aspect you want to raise and that could change it to fast track where they would have to furnish the documents.

You can beat them up over that when it gets down to witness statements and they will either have to put up or go home

did you file your defence?

 

Defence was filed, direction questionnaire received and returned as well.

 

 

In the mean time I've had 2 letters from BW, one is an offer to settle out of court for a reduced sum, as they believe my defence is unlikely to succeed, so assuming that's scare tactics. The other seems to be a fishing exercise, and apart from explaining their clients contractual rights, they're asking me to prove the vehicle did in fact leave the car park and return later. They've requested I send them this info by 09/10/18, postmark on the letter is 24/10/18...

Typical response from a desperate company who knows that they have no chance of success. If they believed your defence wouldnt succeed, then why go for a smaller amount. Theyd be rubbing their hands at an easy win.

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..
