Awesome, FINALLY I have received my first ever PPC invoice.....:cheer2:

 

I'm due to go back there and will get some photos of the signage later, but I can categorically say that the signage is woefully inadequate, as you can only see it at the entrance from one direction, this is going to be so much fun! (hopefully?)

 

Plus I will try and find out from the council if the 45 minute max parking rule is legit or not.

 

1 Date of the infringement 01/10/2018

 

2 Date on the NTK 05/10/2018

 

3 Date received 08/10/2018

 

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

 

5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Yes

 

6 Have you appealed? No

 

7 Who is the parking company? Parking Eye

 

8. Where exactly Gosport Retail Park

 

For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. BPA

Booty, we will need to see the signage and an indication of the car park layout before commenting but yes, ask the council planning dept about any terms governing limits of parking in both the planning application and consent. Tehn ask about planning permissioj for PE's equipment.

 

 

Also, most retail developments are owned by large companies or pension schemes so find out who owns it and see if they use a managing agent to look after the place. Sometimes more leverage can be had if it looks like mistakes have been made and the managers are going to get the public flak via local newspaper etc so they will then tell PE to wind this one up.

 

My other half got one from Highview just under a fortnight ago, They had PP for signage but the land ownership was rather complicated with 3 owners and due to 2 councils having a boundary through the site. Made hay with that as first sign was in 1 council's land whilst PP was granted by the other. The retailer tried to wash their hands but I was insistent it was going to go pear shaped for them ( they had broken the lease and planning consent in other ways) so they told Highview to cancel.

Yeah, this is going pete tong!!

 

How can something so simple be so ruddy difficult?????

 

In a nutshell, I approach the car park from the right hand side of Halfords, where there is only one sign, which you can see in the first photo, yeah, the one on its side....Then there are two signs like the one attached, clearly stating 'Customer only car park' 'For use only whilst on site'.

 

What if I wasn't a 'customer' and left the site?

 

Any joy?

 

Jeez, I give up, printed off how to upload instructions and still failed!

The first sign says 45 mins max stay, it doesnt say that you have to pay them a zillion quid for overstaying so if this is a contract then they cnat now add a charge for being naughty and if they rely on other signage to form a contract then this is an invitation to treat and you can decide if you want to be bound by their terms after you have parked as you are still being invited to park there.

 

If you decide their contract isnt for you then the landowner may ask you to leave and you must. As that didnt happen the overstay is of no interest to PE.

 

Now the real problem is they wont say " it is a fair cop" and give up on this, they have paid about £49.99 for their camera system and wnat their money back form someone, hence the stupidly short allowed time in the first place.

 

Planning dept next stop.

 

as for the extra terms and conditons for disabled, that falls foul of the Consumer Rights Act as they arent even visible so an unfair contract. That means you may rejest the whole contract under s62

Thank you EB, I rang the LA earlier and they said they have no idea who owns the land, check with the Land registry but im loathed to part with money to obtain that info.

 

I have emailed the LA and asked them about any planning permission applied for and obtained and what it states regarding waiting times.

 

I shall hold fire on responding just yet, when I've knocked up a suitable response I shall post it up here first. Ty...

the Vlauations Agency have proven to be helpful in the past. Local council collect business rates so they do know but you can ask planning dept for details about the development application and that will tell you. The PE planning will be separate and more recent, somethime using the online planning portal is worthwhile and then phone them if you cant find it just in case.

This happens to be the only PP I can find for this particular area...... https://publicaccess.gosport.gov.uk/online-applications/simpleSearchResults.do?action=firstPage

 

The reason why could be to do with the fact that ''Gosport Retail Park'' doesn't actually exist, or at least each time I put that name in Google, it can't find it?? But I think my puter is on the blink??

 

I'm still waiting for the LA to get back to me regarding ownership and any PP they made to erect their equipment.

The Postcode for Gosport Retail Park is PO12 1SP if you want to view it on gmaps.

 

Looks like signage is at the entrance and within the carpark displaying the 45 mins

the NTK must identify the land so a vague place like Gosport retail park that doesnt actually exist as such will fail this test.

Another example would be "Sainsburys car park London" as there are dozens to choose from.

 

Again, this is something to ask the planning dept of the council or ask Valuations Agency.

If they dont have a record that matches then the argument over the place name is won

Yes cheers Stu, if you dig around enough you can find the po code, just that the NTK only refers to "Gosport retail park" which when you google it doesnt appear to exist.

Quick question, do I need to be disputing this whilst I wait for the LA to get back to me?

 

 

They're going to get me the info asked for by the 23rd, and with reference to my defence, I think I'll just go with the ''no such place exists'' argument.

Ok the response from the LA, "I believe the signs would fall under Deemed Consent under the Advertisement Regulations Schedule 3, Part 1 under Miscellaneous Advertisements. However, without knowing the sizes of the signs I am unable to give you a definitive answer. I have shown the Regulations below with the link at the bottom:

 

 

 

2. An advertisement displayed for the purpose of identification, direction or warning, with respect to the land or building on which it is displayed.

 

(1) No advertisement may exceed 0.3 square metre in area.

 

(2) Illumination is not permitted.

 

(3) No character or symbol on the advertisement may be more than 0.75 metre in height, or 0.3 metre in an area of special control.

 

(4) No part of the advertisement may be more than 4.6 metres above ground level, or 3.6 metres in an area of special control.

The LA are going to get back to me next week, l said that they need their own PP for their signs and eqpt, and the response from them indicates that they don't have it and are therefore acting unlawfully.

 

 

The enforcement team are now looking into it, as the only PP on their website is that of Halfords obtaining permission to erect a lit sign, back in the last decade.

    • The “fact”, and I use that term guardedly, is that you allege a breach of contract so significant that it justified your resigning - "constructive unfair dismissal". That is the fact that you are claiming. You are discussing evidence here - something that proves the fact. Evidence does not need to be included in the ET1, and few would include anything more than a cursory overview. The tribunal does not "hear" your ET1.  They hear your evidence supporting the allegation you made in your ET1. Do you understand the difference? So evidence may still be collected and may come to light. Technically, right up to the hearing, although, in practice, you need permission to include any evidence not disclosed in the exchange of bundles.    If you have already exchanged bundles, although seems unlikely, then you would need the permission of the tribunal to add further evidence. 
    • You were of course quite within your rights to ask questions with regard to the member of staff’s authority over you etc, and all you legally have to supply is your name and address. It sounds as though he thought you were being difficult? This doesn’t help your case of course, but that’s how it sounded Reading your post.    I suggest awaiting any correspondence from the train operator and go from there. You mentioned you were read your rights, or words to that effect? You were cautioned, but it sounds like you chose not to answer any questions. This is of course your right, but in refusing to answer questions, you can’t really submit any defence for your actions should the matter go to court. That’s the whole idea of the caution.   reading your post, it sounds like you want to hold your hands up anyway, so is and when a letter does arrive, I’d suggest a ‘damage limitation’ approach and send the default grovelling reply asking to meet their reasonable admin charges to keep the matter out of court.

      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
