Today I was shocked to receive a letter from a company called Newlyn, out of the blue, saying I owed L B Waltham Forest £203. Apparently this is for making a "prohibited turn" on 4/5/2019.

 

First of all, this is the very first notification I've had. I have received zero communication from Waltham Forest. 

 

I had to do some digging and found that I was indeed in the area way back in May.However I know the particular area well and truly have no idea what this letter is talking about. If I had received a letter from the council at the time with some evidence of supposed contravention I most likely would have just paid. 

 

I don't want to speak to the bailiffs as I know they are nasty people but I really want to get to the bottom of this. I find it strange that no council letters whatsoever have come through and it's jumped straight to the bailiffs 6 months later.

 

Any advice please.

moved to the bailiff forum.

100's of threads here on unknown PCN's 

 

have you moved since or when you last moved before did you fail to update your V5C?

I will guess this letter is a notice of enforcement giving you 7 days at a fee of £75?

Ah ok, that's probably why. Just recently updated the V5.

No, this letter is for £203 from the bailiffs. I'm guessing the council letters would have gone to the old address. Sp this is the 1st I've heard. 

Not sure what to do.

contact the council PCN enforcement dept tomorrow

explain you only recently updated your V5c so everything they sent prior has gone to an old address.

 

they should advise and help and might even put things on hold

it will probably result in you having to file a statutory declaration which costs £5 I think.

then everything should be reset and the bailiffs called off and the fees removed.

but you must act quickly.

 

was the letter a notice of enforcement?

Actually yes, looking more closely at the bottom it says compliance stage fee £75. Total £278. Such a pain at any time but especially as I knew nothing about it. I still have no idea which road they're talking about so that would be useful to know. 

 

Anyway I will contact the council today. I'm guessing the original fine would have been relatively smaller.

Thanks for your help.

No, I'm not in the habit of collecting pcns! I called the council and apparently I made a right turn out of McDonald's car park. I don't recall seeing any signs otherwise for sure I wouldn't have. First time in the car park and not relevant but I don't eat McDonald's and was just passing through to get back on the road.

 

I now need to appeal.

Hmmm, just googled and see that this is a popular cash cow for the council. 

Unless you happen to see the obscure sign in the car park there is no reason to believe that turning right on the road is an issue.

I'll be looking into this.

 

Meanwhile I have to appeal to fend off the bailiffs first.

Very inconvenient as I have to get the forms witnessed at a county court, week days only.

Such an unjust system.

The bailiffs will be let off the leash on 10 December unless I put in an appeal. The email from Nottingham court says I  need to have the forms witnessed at a county court. A solicitor would be more convenient.

None near to me but oh well. Jumping ahead, do you think I have a chance of winning an appeal against the original fine?

HI.

 

Have you posted in our local authority parking forum about about the fine?

If it is the McD's at the Tesco on High Rd Leytonstone, are you really gonna tell the court you didn't see any right turn prohibitions ?

 

 

 

And yes, the van in the picture is preparing to turn right. If you look closely his right indicator bulb is lit.

Let it be known I would not risk throwing away my money to the council. I didn't see the sign whether that's believed or not.

I don't need to see a picture that has nothing to do with me.

You may scoff if that makes you feel good but no one in their right mind would knowingly "contravene". I most certainly am in my right mind.

The fact is I obviously needed to turn right but definitely would not have risked a fine if I had seen the sign. I'm not into donating my hard earned money to greedy councils.

Incorrect advice I'm afraid.

In most cases, the forms are witnessed by a solicitor. A fee of £5 is charged.

Actually it was Northampton court who advised the county court. The county court I tried said it was by appointment only so I ended up going to a solicitor.
