Dear CAG Team,
I received a ANPR PCN from National Parking Enforcement LTD for parking in the wrong bay for 6 minutes on 21/10/19. (Date of infringement: 16/10/19)
I sent them a letter explaining that I do not acknowledge any debt as that there is no debt to collect. I mentioned that there was no valid contractual offer and the amount that they are demanding amounts to a contractual penalty, unrelated to any loss incurred. I told them that I will ignore any future correspondence on this matter - other than a court summons.
They replied stating that they have rejected my appeal because they believe the PCN was issued correctly and told me to contact the IAS if I want to contest their decision.
Might there be a grace period to park because 6 minutes is not long? Has anyone heard of this company? If I should appeal, what's the best way or should I simply ignore?
As always, thanks for your help!
I have attached 3 letters (both side: front & back) and converted into one PDF as requested in the sticky.
I claimed £641, but £100 is lost in eBay voucher code so really it is £541. Currys offered £200 so another £341.
It’s probably reasonable to accept the offer to save the trouble of having to prepare for evidence/documents etc. I wonder if the offer is negotiable.

did you write to their head office?
you need to carefully explain that these are not fine and neither he his wife or their budgie wont end up in jail if he stands his ground.
if if if the creditor ever tried to issue a moneyclaim in county court to recover the supposed loss of extra parking time revenue they would lose hands down with any proof of local purchase .
there are also MANY way to skin a cat before that
but we need further info to outline these issues, like as you indicate the 90mins stay limit.
the original PP issued by the council will NOT have been 90mins, it never is and no private parking cowboy can change that permission .
I would also suspect that the signs and ANPR cameras don't have the required council planning permission either, nor that the contract with the landowner with the PPC is current and paid for.
can you complete this for atleast one of the 'events'
then we have a better idea as there are 100's of sites we already have threads on here..
Another mistake by Currys!!!
How much do you need to bring you up to your expected value?
By the way, the fact that they have now reneged on their £2000 offer in my view that the without prejudice protection that claimed for it, now fails.
