    • Hi   I hope this is the right place for this post. I dont know a great deal about eviction so I'm seeking some expert advice if possible 🙂 My daughter has received a 6 months section 21 notice which, as she has just given birth to my granddaughter, has caused her stress hence me trying to help her out. Today the landlord has also asked for one months notice if we do manage to find her another place. Is this correct? She currently has a fixed term notice that ends in february and I assume she'll then go on a rolling contract so I'm assuming that it is 🙁 TIA 
    • If I have the correct local authority check these links :    https://www.richmond.gov.uk/services/roads_and_transport/roads_and_road_works/road_and_pathway_maintenance   https://www.richmond.gov.uk/services/roads_and_transport/roads_and_road_works/road_and_pathway_maintenance/road_and_highways_obstuctions   second link has the following :   Builders' skips – check if a skip is licensed before reporting Scaffolding or hoardings Builders materials Temporary works including traffic lights - check if temporary works are scheduled before reporting Overhanging tree branches, hedges Mud/debris on the road Mixing concrete or mortar on the highway Unauthorised vendors or traders Encroachment of highway boundaries * Discharge of water onto the highway Blocking "Rights of Way" Plants and bushes Illegal signs
    • I would challenge all the way ! Check one of my posts as I had a similar issue with my local authority , tree branches and bush covering sign. Took photos same day and a week later lo and behold the branches were cut back. Not my issue the council does not maintain the highways. Looking at your photos how could you tell there were any lines? Of course the council threw it straight back so I appealed and went to the next level and submitted my photos as evidence , they backed down then although still did not admit defeat and stated it as a goodwill gesture... I got some great advice on here so don't be stressed or worried follow the guidelines on here. Either way they are going to try to force you to pay so don't give the @$$ holes an easy ride....
    • Morning Caggers. Hope everybody is safe and well.   Ok will try to make this brief as possible !  Got an early xmas gift from Minster Bay watch in York while working on a site on a retail park, Vehicle overstayed max period (2 hours) . Basically had a short contract with the NHS delivering and installing IT equipment to one of their offices based on the retail park above one of the retail stores. The signage stated two hours max parking , spoke to receptionist who said he would put me on the exclusion list while I was there. Basically has me entering at 8.12 and exit at 15.00 ( to grab some lunch )  although I was there until 6.30pm at night still working. So in theory 8.12am till 18.30pm To add into the mix the car I was driving was just purchased on the 7th Nov and the charge letter dated 10th Nov so again in theory the transfer of ownership was not in my name then , I notice on letter it states we may have obtained your details from DVLA. I actually got the V5 today stating acquired vehicle on 7th Nov   So in the letter column on left is as follows:   Charge notice no ***** Date of contravention - 10/11/2020 Vehicle reg - My current vehicle Vehicle make - - Current vehicle Vehicle model - Current vehicle  Charge value - £100 Date of issue - 20th Nov  Location - Heslington Retail Park - York - YO10 5LA   I have attached a pic of the main body of the letter they are of course offering a discount of £60 ....how jolly nice    So best course of action?   1) Tell them I was driver\owner but working for the NHS with proof of site visit and exemption and lay it on thick about being NHS worker?  (although I imagine it won't make a difference)  2) Deny all knowledge as technically I was not the owner at that point and ask them to prove it  3) Totally ignore and wait for the toilet paper...sorry threat o grams?   I have now left that contract but still have my NHS badge as proof of employment   Thanks NTD...

Hi,

 

I have received a Civil Parking Charge Notice from Athena ANPR Ltd for exceeding the parking time limit in a Lidl car park in Barnsley.

 

I registered my VRN in the store to validate my stay - I did not realise there was a one hour limit.

 

There are signs around the car park but I did not park near one of them and I did not read them.

The signs were not big enough to be read from a distance.

How do I proceed with this?

Do not contact Athena for the moment, how long was the overstay?

There should be a minimum 10 minute grace period to allow someone to exit the car park if there is a queue etc to get out to the road, similarly it might take some time to park after entering the car park and being logged by the Mickey Mouse ANPR these muppets tend to use.

 

Others will be along soon, but 1 hour seems a trifle mean and insufficient time to do a proper shop and clear the checkout, load the car and depart.

 

These enter registration number terminals are another issue and are diabolical, as well as causing delays as shoppers rush to enter their reg no, often making mistakes and getting an unenforceable charge for a wrong entry.

We could do with some help from you.

Hi Brassnecked,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

The overstay, according to their notice, was 30 minutes and 9 seconds long.

Some of this time was certainly spent driving round the car park waiting for a space to become available and, as you rightly guessed, there was a queue to leave the car park.

 

I am not in any hurry to contact these muppets so I will see what other advice I get from you guys first.

Probably best to wait until they send a NTK and avoid risk of identifying the driver

 

can you please complete this:

go look at the originally granted planning permission on the local councils website

VERY rarely is there anything under 3 hrs free stated.

and no PPC can change that.

 

dx

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

 

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

 

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

First approach should be to Lidl. Letnthem know about how long it took you to shop and get in and out of the car park and let them know that you wish to return all of the goods purchased as paying £100 to collect them wasnt part of the deal explained to you in the store. You will happily hand the stuff over in the presence of the local paper reporter who wants to make a story of this.

 

If they have any sense they will then tell Athena to cancel. have your receipt handy so they can check it against their computer that stores every bit of customer information they can grab.

 

If they dont agree to cancel tell them you wnat the CCTV images of you from the day so you can use it as evidence in the court case Athena will inevitably bring when you refuse to pay their "spending money at lidl" tax.

 

Also chase up the planning permission aspects, I bet Athena doesnt have PP for thei cameras and signs, a criminal offence

Hi EB,

 

I am chasing this up with Barnsley MBC. Condition 5 of their planning consent charges Lidl with the development of a final management plan for the car park which must be agreed with the council. Amongst the items to be agreed is the charging regime. That should make interesting reading!

so waht did LIdl say? the longetr yu leave approaching them the less chance they will do anything as it will appear that you arent really that upset by it all.

 

By all menas mention what you have got on them and try suggesting that you will ask teh council to shut the store due to the breach of planning whilst the whole lot is investigated. However, the CS person you speak to will be very low down in the pile so getting the ticket cancelled may be just about within their powers so save that argument for when you get to talk to someone higher up.

I have tried to get in touch with someone at Lidl who can help me, but I seem to be going round in a circle and getting nowhere. I am going back to the store when it is nice and busy, (tomorrow or Saturday should do nicely), to discuss the matter in a loud voice with their manager.

and read up about all of this. Start off with reading a load of threads about Lidl and them follow to wherever you are lead. Get to understand things so you dont get fobbed off by the first person you speak to.
