Can anyone help.


In 2016 we received a letter from Park With Ease to say we were being fined for failure to pay for parking at Ferry Meadows in Peterborough.

After contacting them to inform them that their letter was outside the 14 day period and therefore not legal the matter was closed.


18 months on on and we are now receiving letters from Equita regarding the matter,

telling us we owe an substantially increased amount and will be taken to court etc,

drawing our attention to a 2015 case in the Supreme Court.


I’ve tried calling but just end up on hold for ever and now my other half just wants to pay it because she’s worried about CCJs etc?


Surely this can’t be right, can it?

Can we argue it?


We didn’t pay for parking on the day in question (a 40 minute stay during our lunch break) because neither their machine nor website recognised our number plate!

Based on normal rates it was about £1 and we always pay to park if the machines allow us to!

Don't worry! The experts will be on soon to ask for details and to give their help. But a few things.


Firstly, it's not a fine, only councils or the police can fine people, not a private company.


Next, think about it, if they want to take you to court why don't they do it, instead of faffing around for 18 months and getting powerless DCAs like Equita to write to you? It's actually positive that these nobodies are sending you their (not very) scary letters.


The only way you could get a CCJ is if they sent a proper LBA, then started court proceedings, then won, and then you refused to pay - and you're nowhere near the first step yet.

We could do with some help from you.

STOP TRYING TO CALL THEM, you know they are in the wrong so all you are doing is encouraging them to think that by sending your threatograms they stand a chance of collecting somehting for their chistmas party. They know they dont have a cat in hell's chance of actually winning a court claim so have to use coercion and threats to try and get some money
