G24 ANPR PCN - Matalan, Heathcote Rd, Longton, Stoke-on-Trent ST3 2NU


Recommended Posts

I've just received a parking notice from these utter villains. I've been going to this Matalan since I was about 17 and never had an issue. Now I've been given a parking charge notice. 

 

I've been going this place for years without incident. At some point during the pandemic, ANPRs went up. I assume it's recent because I actually went tail end of last year.

 

I spent over £100 in store, was parked for 19 mins, received the parking charge notice today. 

 

I've spoken to Matalan who claim they have no authority to reverse the charge. I've threatened to take all the stuff back, which I might do anyway out of principal.

 

The notice has photographic evidence. I've not appealed. I phoned the company and had a row with them but they just said appeal. 

 

Please advise :(

 

What is the current approach here?

 

I've just threatened to take all the stuff back and Matalan are adamant that they can't reverse it and it's up to the company.

 

Help.

  • dx100uk changed the title to G24 ANPR PCN - Matalan, Heathcote Rd, Longton, Stoke-on-Trent ST3 2NU

might be an idea to pop up on the relevant councils website planning portal, i severely doubt any parking times were limited to 30mins upon granting planning and ofcourse no-one can change that without council permission.

 

sit on your hand until/unless you get a letter of claim.

The good news is you're the sixth motorist who has put a thread on CAG over the last few months about this car park and these "utter villains" as you quite rightly call them.  No-one has paid.  No-one has been taken to court.  In fact the fleecers haven't even sent a Letter Before Action to anyone.  

 

Good try with Matalan.  The problem is, they might be right.  If Matalan run the car park, then they can call G24 off.  If Sports Direct do, they can.  But if the car park is run by a third party as a retail park, then Matalan and Sports Direct are powerless.  We haven't been able to find out yet who runs the car park.

 

 

We could do with some help from you.

E-mail Matalan's CEO  [email protected]  and demand they call the fleecers off.

 

This may get you nowhere as we don't know if it's Matalan's own car park, but it has to be worth a try. 

 

In any event it would be useful for you and others in the same position to know who runs the damn car park.
