NPM PCN claimform - overstay Un-adopted Rd entrance to old St Edmunds Hosp Northampton

Recommended Posts

I now have the correct planning application number and confirmed that the Tesco's landlord is the the same company, who own the whole site.

 

Also seen the deeds to the land.

 

Read the attached with interest.

 

Have they broken their agreement for the planning consent by not painting double yellow lines before Tesco's etc moved in or because the road is un-adopted is that a get out for them?

Reading that article, it states that part of the road is adopted and it is requiring, unless agreed otherwise, that a Traffic Regulation Order be obtained for double yellow lines etc. It may also explain the boundary marking of the road in your earlier plans, from the main road just up to the island and the two short 'spurs' - it certainly looks adopted in your earlier pictures.

We may have had some temporary success.

 

The NPM Cowboys, their floodlighting and flash cameras were not present last night when it was dark

they maybe lying low at the moment unless they were all at a staff Bonfire Party that Mt Gearly was holding!

I know who I would have liked to have seen as the guy on top of the bonfire :)

Sorry if that last sentence is breaking group rules.

 

i have continued to push Tesco's into taking action.

They have tried to fob me off and pull the wool over my eyes, but they apologised in the end for doing so and have stated this will be passed onto the area manager.

so a question about which part will be the adoptable hightway when completed.

The layout suggests all of the access road that is currently the part that is causing the problem.

 

Now the next para that you can hardly see in your post makes it clear as to where this does end and to my mind the actual tarmac already there is covered by this so probably adopted by the default position of planning being granted.

 

appears as though 2 departments at NDC arent singing from the same hymnsheet as they say in managementspeak.

I didnt think it was a done deal that the road will be adopted at all.

I would think like you that all of the part causing issues will be adopted.

 

Yes the tarmac and normal line marking are part of the problem.

It looks like a finished adopted road and as there are no signs stating otherwise obviously shopper are none the wiser until that PCN drops through the letter box!

It wont be adopted until the store opens for business but you can stuill rely on Dawood v Camden and the overriding fact that there is no contract to breach. Do not forget this last point as it is the only sure fire winner, the rest rely onpeople being convinced that a contract is void because... rather than no contract to start with

Unless there has been a Stopping order by the council, Market Street is an adopted road already, it was a through road from Wellingborough Rd to Kettering Rd. The construction site access road is a seperate spur and will likely belong to the developer.


My time as a Police Officer and subsequently time working within the Motor Trade gives me certain insights into the problems that consumers may encounter.

I have no legal qualifications.

Anyways, who is the landowner as it isnt Tesco Knowing this may be helpful re contracts and planning for signs

 

The document is a pdf from the Council website. The quality is poor. As they say you cannot polish the s word. Tesco property manager phoned me this afternoon. I am sending him all the complaint details and he is going to speak to the Landlord. If he gets a response it will be that the Parking Management Company is a member of the IPC and signs at the site approved by the IPC and Trading Standards. I have told him why to dismiss these statements.

 

He confirmed who I know to be the Landlord and owner of the land.

approved by TS? that is an out and out lie.

So who is the landowner then? You want to know how to find alternative ways of fighting this so spill the beans.

Just a quick note that I'm also being hassled by these people for payment of a parking charge.... just ignoring everything so far. But I did check their assertion that the signage at this location had been 'approved by Trading Standards'. I checked with Northampton County Council Trading Standards, since this seemed a bold claim. I received an email reply saying that this was not the case.

signs or their approval are nothing to do with TS, they are not ADVERTS

I'm not sure what your point is?

The parking company in question have asserted that trading standards had 'approved' of the signage at this location.

I am simply pointing out that this is not the case.

If it helps anybody, I recently found out from the Tesco employees that NPM lost the contract from the landowner for this un-adopted road around a month ago due to numerous amounts of complaints

Thanks for the info...

Hi everyone.

 

I have not been on here for sometime as I was waiting for the LBC, which has finally arrived. I will upload it later with personal details covered.

 

Whilst waiting for the LBC my Father contacted Tesco Head Office about the issue of shoppers receiving PCN's in this road because the signage is poor (e.g. none at the entrance of the road, these refer to Land/Site, not Road & most do not face the driver) and consequently they park unaware that the road is Private/Un-adopted with no parking allowed.

 

Also NPM have been breaking IPC Codes of Conduct, like alluring drivers to park where it is forbidden by parking their own vehicles there & using portable floodlights and flash to take PCN photos at night because their signs or not illuminated.

 

As a result of this Tesco complained to their Landlord, who is the Landowner of the road and hence the NPM contract was suspended whilst investigations took place.

 

Management and staff at the store have assumed that the NPM contract has been cancelled because no one has been seen there for a few months now and one member of the NPM staff, who previously worked here, told staff that the company no longer manage the parking in this road anymore.

 

The NPM signs are still there except the one nearest the front of the store, which someone has removed.

 

However the Manager who was my Fathers contact at Tesco told us that the Landlord have completed their investigations and that the NPM contract is going to be reinstated after road repairs have been completed.

 

We cannot see that any repairs are required, & have not seen a copy of the investigation report.

 

The last 3 emails to this Tesco Manager have not received a reply, so he contacted Head Office, who have also been unable to contact this Manager.

 

instead they contacted the store and who confirmed their belief that the NPM contract has been cancelled & consequently they have made the following statement to my Father "I hope we have reassured you that this type of charge will not be incurred on our Customers any more and you can freely parkin the road when using this facility".

 

If this is definitely true we don't know why the other Tesco Manager misinformed us and then went silent on us. Something is not right, but my Father will get to the bottom of this.

 

My Father wrote a complaint letter about NPM to our MP, but she messed up and forgot to include enclosures with her first letter.

 

A second letter had to be sent which included these and a detailed reply was received, which sounded very good and believable, but a lot was untrue and are an attempt to wriggle out of the points of our complaint, so a third letter was required. This has not been responded to, other than receiving the LBC.

 

A complaint to the IPC about NPM breaking their code of conduct was hard work getting a response and turned out to be a waste of time as they just made up excuses for their member for each code that they had broken!

 

Parking Signs being approved by Trading Standards may be nothing to do with them.

However, over 4.5 years ago Gary Gearey, the MD of NPM was quote in the Northampton Chronicle & Echo newspaper that Trading Standards had approved the signs at this site, so if this was untrue I would love to have a copy of the email that supports this.

 

As promised here is the Letter Before Claim from NPM.

 

Does it legally comply?

It is interesting to see they have issued this themselves and not used a Solicitor.

I did have two QDR Solicitor letters before this and I saw that Gladstones messed up on one of their LBC's that caused issues with the court proceedings.

 

Any advice please on how to respond would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your continued support.

 

I have read Daewood V Camden (newspaper report). Camden Council won the case against the Dr Daewood parking on his own land so how does that support my case?

it shows that the council has rights over the land and that in return menas the parking co's authority is trumped as you would naturally consider that the road surface is council property or at least maintained by them so signage doesnt apply.

As for responding to the lba I would do so but keep it short.

 

Dear sirs,

 

I deny that any monies are owed as no contrcat was created so there can be nothing owed for a breach of somehting that doesnt exist. If yu do take the matter to court I shall be seeking a full costs recovery orer under CPR 27.14.2(g) for your unreasonable conduct as you know there is no cause for action and you have no authority to make such a claim.

Thanks for your response.

Was worried that there were no views yesterday.

Obviously everyone was busy!!

 

I have read that whilst the road is unadopted and is private it is the Landowners responsibility to maintain it.

 

NPM have also stated in their response to my MP's complaint letter:

 

"St Edmunds is an un-adopted road.

An un-adopted road is a private road.

It is a road that is privately owned property and is limited to the use of the owners who share the use and maintain the road without help from a government agency.

 

Even though the road is un-adopted most regulations will still apply.

As this road is private the landowner does not wish to mark the road with any type of linage, which they are well within their rights to do so".

 

With regards to there not being a contract they wrote:

 

"Drivers are allowed and given time to read NPM signage to determine if they wish to park on Private land or not.

If a driver chooses to park on the private land, then they agree to abide by the terms and conditions of parking.

If drivers park and leave their vehicle a PCN will then be issued".

 

In another part of the letter they wrote

"The NPM contract is entered once the vehicle is stationary, unattended or stopped"

 

I cannot see how you can read the signage without parking and leaving your vehicle!!!!

 

Should I respond to the LBC with just a letter or also complete the relevant sections of the Annex 1.

(i.e. My details at the top of page 10, Tick Box D I dispute the debt (using reasons you have given?),

Tick Box I and ask for more information like the Landowner Authority,

and sign and date Page 12 below Box I)?

Yes ignore their tick box malarkey, and send them the response in ericsbrother's post#126 exactly as is, that shows them you know that they know there is no debt but they would like to bamboozle you into paying.


We could do with some help from you.
