    • With regard to your question on post 207 if you bring in the points that I made on the validity of the contract they are supposed to have with Peel holdings then mention that there are already doubts about the validity of the contracts that are being used by the PPCs and the OPS is a classic example. Once you are on there you should then try and get your other point in after that.   if it is in connection with the extra charge of £60 remind the Judge that the charge has been defined by many Court across England that the charge is an abuse of process which was covered in PE v Beavis at point 198    " The charge has to be and is set at a level which enables managers to recover the costs of operating the scheme"  IE the £100 charge covers all their expenses so nothing should be added.   as their WS claims an extra £60 that could be judged as perjurious since it is an additional sum that should be known by VCS and the author of the WS as a double recovery. Especially as they have already lost in Court for the same reason.   Another cause to prove that they do not comply with their Code of Conduct. file:///C:/Users/User/Downloads/CamScanner%2008-05-2020%2016.34.59.pdf  Byelaws are statutory not arbitrary as their WS said on no .42 .   Best of Luck.   The above URL does not work but this one does http://forums.National Consumer Service.com/index.php?showtopic=133001    [20.1 is where  VCS  lost then 20.2 where they appealed and lost again .

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Hi

 

I've just received N24 General Form of Judgement.

 

It says my hearing will be heard on the telephone.

 

I'm booked in for 23rd October.

 

I guess this is the stage now where I need to prepare my case for the judge?

 

Any advice you can offer appreciated as always.

Hi DX 

 

The previous letter gave all that. This letter begins with "This order replaces any previous order".

 

As far as I can see, there is no other things left for me to do on this current letter, other than send the stuff over 14 days in advance.

Hi DX

 

I've had a start at looking at this tonight. It seems like such a mountain to climb now.

 

Wrt to the WS, is the 'no stopping' the most appropriate for me, or more general parking ticket 'offences'?

 

The ones that I have looked at seem to refer to a different type of scenario which is worrying me a little.

 

It just seems like a case of not seeing the wood for the trees. I'm sure it will all clear up with time.

a very important piece of info that ...

type in peel investments in our search.

think you'll find as with all peel investments sites in Manchester/Liverpool etc

they are all port authority land covered by byelaws that no tinpot parking company can over ride.

 

vcs as with all airports sites

sc@m parkers out of money when they have zero locus standi 

 

dx

 

 

thought so.

 

which is why i said use no stopping as other ws's wont inc the very important byelaws bits.

 

don't forget they are EXAMPLES

YOU have to adapt to your situation and your filed defence.

 

which might inc various bits from various WS's.

 

but as you've been here since 2016 and have been reminded numerous time in this very thread to always be ahead of the game and get ready for the next part before you are advised of it

i'm sure your self help is already advanced on WS's.

I've just discovered a colleague successfully appealed with POPLA against VCS, back in Dec 14. Details of the appeal can be seen below...

 

Would referencing this in the court case assist me do you think?

 

Reasons for the Assessor’s Determination

 

It is the operator’s case that a parking charge notice was correctly issued, giving the reason as: ‘parked without displaying a valid ticket/permit’. The operator submits that a parking charge is now due in accordance with the clearly displayed terms of parking.

 

The appellant has made a number of submissions. However, I will only elaborate on the one submission that I will be allowing this appeal on, namely that the parking charge of £100 is not a genuine pre-estimate of the operator’s loss.

 

In order to justify that the amount is a genuine pre-estimate of loss, the operator submitted a breakdown of the losses they incurred as a result of the appellant’s breach. Amongst other things, the operator has included costs such as the debt recovery process and final reminder process costs which cannot be taken into account as the operator has not incurred this loss as a result of the appellant’s breach.

 

I am not minded to accept the debt recovery process as part of the justification as not all parking charge notices will go to the debt recovery process stage. I also find that the operator cannot claim the “2nd Stage Process” to be a separate heading of losses incurred as a result of the appellant’s breach. This is because the procedure for dealing with an appeal is not structured in a way so that the appellant can re-appeal to the operator.

 

Therefore, I find that it is not reasonable for the operator to pre-estimate this as a loss.

I find that the list submitted by the operator does not substantially reflect the loss suffered as a result of the appellant’s breach. This is because it appears that a substantial portion of the costs refer to the debt recovery process and the “2nd Stage Process”.

 

Considering carefully all the evidence before me, I find that the damages sought on this particular occasion do not amount to a genuine pre-estimate of loss.

 

Accordingly, I allow the appeal

No sadly that doesn't work now-not since Parking Eye v Beavis.

 

What  does work  is 

 

1] the area is covered by its own Bye Laws so POfa is not relevant

 

2] the signage is forbidding so no contract can be formed

 

3] without a permit showing you were trespassing and only the land owner can sue for trespass therefore VCS has no Locus standi

 

4] the signage shows the BPA logo not IPC logo 

 

5] the maximum amount that can be charged is £100. Anything over that is double recovery as VCS know well since they have lost cases already by claiming too much

 

6] by taking you wrongly to Court they have breached your |GDPR and are liable to pay around £500  these days for that breach.

 

6] as they have not responded to your CPR  you do not believe that they have permission from the local Council to erect their signs under Town and Country [Advertisements]  Regulations.

 

not to have that necessary permission is a criminal offence and a breach of their own Code of Conduct and they have to comply with that Code to enable them to obtain your data from the DVLA.

 

If you get all that in with examples from this Forum and other cases from the Parking Prankster it should be a piece of cake should VCS be stupid enough to go to Court.

Thanks LFI and DX

 

The other question I have relates to the Byelaws.

 

I know the Byelaws sign is at the entrance to the car park, and I have pictures of that.

 

Do I need to supplement this with a copy of the byelaws? The only copy I can really find is a 2020 draft copy that was submitted in May, below...

 

The 2020 makes a reference to parking vehicles during night. Will this copy suffice or not as the date proceeds the offence? I'm sure it superseded a previous set of Byelaws but they seem difficult to find.

Ive found a 2017 copy the same, but that too had DRAFT written all over it.

 

But can't really find much earlier than that.

I note they give details of someone you can contact who will give you your own copy of the 2020 bye-laws for £1.

 

Might it be worth contacting this person to ask if they can supply you with a copy of the 2015 bye-laws?

 

 

We could do with some help from you.

Thanks Dave, I'm on the case with your suggestion.

 

If it's ok, do you mind if I send a quick first draft over of my WS? I've spent days already on this now, preparing and researching and my head is hurting off it. I realise I am crying it in, but it would just be really useful for me to know if I was on the right tracks, before I further waste time!

 

You can see it's heavily copy and pasted, but the bits I don't feel are relevant I've kept in Italic, but left them in purely in case you think that actually they can be of help, even though I don't think they can be...

Thanks DX, corrected.

 

I'll take another look at it tomorrow with a clear head.

 

I've started the process of obtaining the Byelaws, and I have been passed on to port police who have been inquisitive to my request. I'll see what they say when they get back to me.

Sorry I thought that first bit wasn’t very clear. I was just trying to push I had a valid Peel Ports ISPS Parking Pass (green one).

 

This can be seen clearly in the car window in their photographs.

 

The Woodside Business Park pass is the pass I did not display that night. 
 

I guess I was just trying to link my port pass, to the Byelaws...although I probably didn’t make that very clear in my intro?

 

Edit....this Peel pass was issued by port police though.

 

Edit 2! The Woodside pass is issued by the property manager or secretary of Peel L&P group management ltd.

eh?

 

you have some form of authority issued to you from the port authority that you must hold/use/display to be even on the land - that totally blow any need for anything else. 

 

you to roll all the byelaws stuff into one statement,

 

your conclusion being

- it is obvious the land is owned by an airport authority governed by their relevant byelaws,  as i must display/use/hold a permit from them to enter their land.

 

Any parking infringements would be by way of prosecution under those byelaws after the issuance of a PENALTY CHARGE NOTICE.

 

A Penalty Charge Notice cannot be adjudged in a County Court but only within the Magistrates System as they are Legitimate Fines and not merely a claim of breaking some imaginary contract under contract Laws be one in existence or not in the County Court .

Well it is a bit messy isn’t it.

 

For my job I drive all around the port, to various docks and quays where I leave the car. This is what I need my green ISPS Peel pass for. I don’t ‘need’ it for Woodside.

 

The Woodside business permit is self explanatory.

 

However, like you say you would think the Peel one would override the Woodside one, but I guess our friends at VCS are only concerned with the Woodside pass?

 

I did make it clear to them from the beginning I held the port pass, which you would have thought granted me an exemption??

they dont care dave and will say anything which is why you never bother to appeal in the se cases

but the judge will.

 

you are thinking the wrong way in your WS.

and don't forget it is in SUPPORT of your stated defence which mentioned such as we adapted it to Inc the byelaws issue.

 

so ..

 

forget you even NEED anything to park in woodside

it is obvious ALL the land is gov't by byelaws, youMUST have a pass to be on the land 

 

write as i do above.

Thanks DX I've put those notes into practice.

 

Just to be clear, the case is held on the 23rd.

 

I believe the best way of sending the pack over is by post/email to the court, and post to Simon, is this correct?

 

Also, for the 14 days, just to be clear, as I don't want to give Simon the extra day if I miss calculate, is my 14 day deadline Friday 9th 4pm?

 

Again, trying to give Simon minimum time to view my bundle, I suppose the best way of doing this is posting the day before by Special Delivery?
