    • Pandemic will just accelerate the change that was already happening.   High Street Retailers will go bust, as they cannot compete with online warehouse operators. Government will have to reduce the business rates significantly and landlords who own the shop buildings will need to reduce the rents they charge.   Retailers will need to make changes to the layout of their shops to make them more attractive, as a leisure experience. If they are offering just racks or shelfs of goods, consumers may think they are not getting anything extra than if they bought online.   As more people work from home, they will be available for home deliveries, so online retailers will gain the sales. The high streets where these homeworkers  use to work close to will lose sales.   Travel sector including airlines will see many go bust, more so, if there is a second wave of the virus.  Holidays based in peoples home countries or in neighbouring countries will be more popular. Caravans, motorhome sales are going to see massive increases, as people want their own clean spaces. And caravan parks will see more demand as a consequence, but will have to update facilities.   Pretty much every sector of the economy is going to see the biggest changes they have ever gone through and in a very short space of time.

    • Small attachment to an iPhone that cost £288.00.   I know anything that relates to Apple can be very expensive, but what was the attachment ?   Did you return the attachment product in its original packaging ?   How often do you buy products from Amazon ?   How often do you return products to Amazon ?   Could Amazon believe you are buying products to simply try out for a period, with no intention of keeping the products ?
    • So I make a post and ask you some questions and you then go in and make a response which deals with something completely different and which ignores the questions which I have asked completely. I don't see how we can move forward on that basis
    • Thank you. First of all, this is not chronology so we don't have any sense of the timeline. It's still rather complicated – but maybe when you produce a chronology it will come more into focus. However, there are a few things that we can start to tease out. You say that you accepted £250 in an offer which was intended to reflect distress. Although you say that you accepted this offer mistakenly, it may well be that you have no further rights on this issue because of course it would have been up to you to understand the situation properly before accepting any kind of financial offer. However, it would be useful to understand the reach of this offer and so please could you post up the offer letter by uploading it in PDF format. You say that "high-volume messaging" is not explicitly covered in the terms and conditions – but there may be references to "fair use policy" and it may be an interpretive problem rather than looking for words which specifically match your situation. So it will be helpful to know what words Vodafone were relying upon and also what was the extent of your high-volume messaging. Did they give you any warnings. You say that they referred to terms and conditions which you did not sign. However, it isn't necessary to sign terms and conditions. We would have to understand more about the context – but generally speaking if there is an agreement which refers to terms and conditions from the outset and you then embark upon the agreement and use the services, then all the signs would be that you've accepted the conditions of use. Signed written terms and conditions are generally speaking only required in contracts for property or copyright or shares. You say that the contract was put in your sole name despite the fact that the company name was on the agreement. We don't have a chronology so we don't see how long this went on for and you don't explain why you didn't raise any objections to this – or maybe you did? You say that you have sent Vodafone and Lowell an SAR but "so far" you are waiting for a response. This suggests that you sent the SAR some time ago – but you haven't told us anything about when this might have happened. You are referring to obligations under the Consumer Rights Act but I'm afraid that these obligations refer to contracts between a trader and a consumer – and you are not trading as a consumer so these probably wouldn't apply to you. Finally, you are worried about expressing a claim in legal language. If you begin a small claim then you certainly don't need any legal language – and in fact that kind of approach simply gets in the way. Also, it seems to me that you are gearing up to bring a court claim – which is fine, in my book – but you haven't identified your cause or causes of action and you don't have a plan. I think we need to slow down and have a more careful and methodical look at the situation. Otherwise you're simply going to find yourself in trouble

CEL ANPR PCN - 16 mins overstay - kfc, Fenton,stoke on Trent

Recommended Posts

Hi I have received a parking charge notice for overstaying on kfc through the post from civil enforcements ltd.

I was 16 minutes over due to the fact that my little ones were playing up and not eating their meal.

Annoyed we left the restaurant and wouldn’t allow them ice cream

 

to cut a long story short by the time I’d put them in their car seats I’d given in, I drove through the drive in and collected ice cream to take home.

I was parked in a disabled bay with a blue badge I hadn’t noticed the new signs of limited free parking.

 

I was with friends who were on the car park longer than us and didn’t get a charge.

I have to appeal by Tuesday.

Do I appeal or wait? 

 

1 Date of the infringement 03/01/2020

 

2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date]

[scan up BOTHSIDES as ONE  PDF- follow the upload guide]  07/01/2020

 

3 Date received 13/01/2020

 

4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [Y/N?] Y

 

5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Not on letter

 

6 Have you appealed? [Y/N?] post up your appeal] N

Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up

 

7 Who is the parking company? civil enforcements ltd

 

8. Where exactly [carpark name and town kfc, Fenton,stoke on Trent

DO NOT APPEAL, CEL are the most dishonst parking co in the country.

their paperwork doesnt comply to the protocols of the POFA so you cannot be liable for the charge.

 

Now in the meanwhile

get on to KFC and ask them to get this cancelled but before you do check with the local council to see if CEL have planning permission for their signage and cameras. they do need it so dont be put off by some bod telling you it is deemed consent, it isnt.

 

once you have found out that therer is no PP, let the KFC know that you are going to sue them for allowing CEL to process your personal data as they are merely the agents of KFC if the whole matter isnt dropped. Try asking nicely at first and them tell them about the big stick you will use.

 

It will be KFC HQ, not the local branch that has the clout.

 

If they dont do something then dont sweat over it and wait foe CEL to send you some more begging letters.

You can get some pictures of the entrance to the land and the sigange there once KFC have decided not to play ball

 

And by the way, it isnt a fine!

 reason why you overstayed is immaterial but you can use it to explain to KFC that their mickey mouse parking co cant tell the difference between an overstay and  a visit to the restaurant and a separate visit to the drive through

Thanks for your reply, noted.

 

I have already been into kfc to speak to the manager and show both receipts I have,  but was  told ‘tough luck’ the signs are there, not his problem.


As far as I can see there’s been no planning permission issued since kfc applied for their new illuminated signs in 2016

look at the initial granted planning permission as you will find I expect free parking was 2 or 3hrs granted by the council n-one can change that either.

can we have the NTK as requested up as a PDF

All I can see on the planning permission is a disabled parking sign, parking and exit signs and a vehicles left at their own risk sign along with other kfc signs.Scanned Documents-2 2.pdf

 Here’s the notice to keeper hoping I’ve uploaded it right....

So they're talking about 90 minutes' parking? As dx says, you need to find out what the Planning Permission sets as the free parking time.

then that is to your advantage as well, they have to identify the land in question.

we need pictures of the signage there at KFC. Start by taking pictures of the entrance whether there are signs there or not and then pictures of every sign that is different in the car park with a note as to where they are, how big they are and whether they are illuminated by either their own lights or by being under a street lamp.

 

Dont forget that you arent going to contact CEL but you may have a few choice words for KFC as they are ultimately responsible
