the defence for all airports and harbours will be the same
lack of authority to make a claim as byelaws apply.
not "relevant land" POFA doesnt apply so no keeper liability can be created.
signage is prohibitive so not a genuine offer of a parking contract ( dotn forget, you have to stop to be able to read and consider the offer on the sign!)
claim is vex as parking co know that their claim is an unlawful penalty as they have lost them all before at JLA for same reason
point 23 another thing to do if you have the time is to measure the width of the bay. The RTA states a minimum of 1.8m so although the law doesnt actually apply to private land it is easy to argue that the gold standard shouldapply to create equality with concil run car parks otherwise th marking of bays could be deliberately dome in a manner that is designed to force motorists to breach the conditions and thus force them to pay the third party parking co rather than provide a measure of parking management.
even asking ther rep wherther the parking spaces and signage conform to the specs drawn up by the DoT may well be enough, esp if you take evidence of what that spec is for all parking spaces and signage and that will save you from going out with a tape measure and forcing them to do that instead
basically quote the regs and have the references in your WS and all of the detail as additional evidence
also ask about the credentials of their rep, if it isnt an actual solicitor then they have no right of audience without someone from CEL present. If the judge allows them to speak dont challenge this ( judges powes allow them to decide who speaks in their court) but do ask the questions as to whether the person is a qualified solicitor on the SRA roll before it all starts and ask that the Ws is then discounted as there is no-one to answer to it.
If no-one turns up ask for a full costs recovery order under CPR 27.14.2(g) to include £95 LiP research costs. Quote the CPR and have somebhting in writing to give re loss of income, travel eyc as well as this money
