    • Pardon late reply, had a busy last few days. I will make enquiries to the Council or Valuations Agency tomorrow when they are open. I am a little apprehensive about getting the dentist involved although I wasn't warned about the new parking system at the time. I have photos but  will need to reduce the mb size of them as 4.5 mb is maximum upload on here. They will also need editing to blot out reg numbers etc. I was given 28 days from CE to cough up after the POPLA decision and that will expire in a few days time. I intend to take this all the way and to save further action [e.g. debt collectors with the £100 rocketing to the thick end of a Grand]   write to CE and tell them take me straight to Court as all letters will be ignored. 
    • Hi, i am not sure if this has been discussed before, i have a feeling it probably has. My partner has claimed carers allowance for looking after her uncle for the last 3 years. She has also quite often worked part time. She has always told me she was allowed to work 15 hours per week and she has always stuck to this limit. However i have looked into it and found that the limit is how much you earn not how many hours you work. Her jobs have always been minimum wage so they have actually kept her just under the earnings limit. This is where i think this subject may have been discussed before, obviously in april 2019 the increase in NMW and the carers earnings limit increase resulted in someone working 15 hours at NMW being 15p over the limit. My partner had no idea she was earning too much until a letter arrived a few weeks ago from the carers people. They suspended her claim and she had to fill a form in  detailing her working hours and earnings etc over a certain period. My partner sought advice from the CAB who said this would be overlooked as it was such a small amount (15p). She received a letter on saturday saying she was not entitled to carers from april 2019 until sep 2019, (she stopped working in september and is not currently working). The letter does not say what they intend to do as she has already received her payments for this period. I have a feeling another letter may be on its way telling her to pay it back ? Surely this can not be right ? Another point to mention is that my partner had £2 per week took from her wages for her uniform, i put this down as an allowable expense but they have completely ignored this and not even mentioned it in the letter they sent out on saturday. As far as i was aware work uniform or equipment should be classed as an allowable expense, this in effect would take her below the carers earnings limit. Has anyone had a similar experience or can offer any advice ? I seriously cant believe they are doing this over 15p per week. Thanks in advance Steve.
    • You are onto something here... POFA s.4 states:   "6(1)The second condition is that the creditor (or a person acting for or on behalf of the creditor)— (a)has given a notice to driver in accordance with paragraph 7, followed by a notice to keeper in accordance with paragraph 8...   8(1)A notice which is to be relied on as a notice to keeper for the purposes of paragraph 6(1)(a) is given in accordance with this paragraph if the following requirements are met....   (4)The notice must be given by— (a)handing it to the keeper, or leaving it at a current address for service for the keeper, within the relevant period; or (b)sending it by post to a current address for service for the keeper so that it is delivered to that address within the relevant period. (5)The relevant period for the purposes of sub-paragraph (4) is the period of 28 days following the period of 28 days beginning with the day after that on which the notice to driver was given."   In the Claimant's WS, from para 54 onwards, they refer to p.9 of POFA regarding the issuing of the notice to the Keeper. They're relying on the wrong paragraph because, as they've issued a notice to driver, they should be relying on p.8, as I've quoted above. The notice to keeper can then only be issued once 28 days have passed. They're stating that it's 14 days, and that they have done this in your case.   Did you include POFA as a WS exhibit?
    • Thanks again!   With regards to evidence raised above, since the application is now scheduled for a hearing, what if I wanted to submit further evidence to support my case for the hearing.   How would that affect the already submitted Witness Statement with the application? (It was not originally meant for a hearing)

Hey guys,

I just received a parking notice,

the observation time is 10:19 to 10:27.

 

I went and saw the same cars which were parked right next to me, and they didn't receive a parking ticket, but I did?

I'm not sure how this has happened, it was a single yellow line, with no time restriction sign anywhere.

 

Please help.

Thank you in advance,

 

if there is more information required from please let me know

Cheers.

 

Hope you aren't having a bad day as myself.

Hi.

 

 

Can you tell us exactly where you parked please? That way people may be able to use Google streetview to look at the area.

Thank you for the information, that's helpful. Are there any signs on lampposts that tell you what the rules are?

I looked around, and there was no signs, or lamp posts.

But I may have possibly missed one if there was one behind a van or something but as far as I am aware there wasn't any.

Your link to the location takes me to the side of a road junction, and points straight at the lamppost with the yellow sign on.

 

 

Was this sign missing when you parked there? And what is the contravention code/description on the PCN?

There was no sign there.

I checked.

And as for the description where would that be?

as goggleyes shows a plate take a picture of the same lamppost without the plate and you are home and dry. Now if there is another lamppost with the same restriction plate on the same stretch of single yellow then the restriction is valid even if the plate is 200 yds away

I see a plate outside 50 Luckington rd and one outside 78 so you need to check whether all 3 have disappeared.

Where would what be? I don't know if you see what I see when I click the link, but it takes me to a photo which points almost exactly at the sign.

 

 

 

Ericsbrother says if if you take a picture of the same lamppost without the sign you are home and dry. That isn't quite the case - if you could prove there was no sign when the PCN was issued it would strengthen your case, but as mentioned, there could be another on the same stretch of line, further up. You would need to check.

 

 

Chances are, the Council has a relevant photo, so if you ask for a copy you can see what sign (if any) they think applies.

I did point out that further signs were visible on the same stretch of line but some distance away and that they still count so OP should check. Sometimes they disappear due to vandalism and sometime because there is/was a change of the prescribed hours and they havent got round to putting up the new signs.

Based on the evidence of Go Ogle i would be either looking for a new Traffic Order or just pay up rather than use the OP's current argument

Yeah, I get you. I was thinking more about proving the sign wasn't there at the time, rather than taking a photo to show it isn't there now. Time has elapsed since the PCN was issued.
