MET PCN claimform - occupants left Southgate premises - Southgate Carpark Stansted


Recommended Posts

Hi, 
I have received a claim form from MET Parking regarding an unpaid parking charge from November 2019 at the Southgate Carpark Stansted.

From what I can remember I received a few PCN but assumed these were a scam of some sort as the driver was a paying customer on the carpark premises at the time.

The notices stopped for a few years but I have now received a claim form from The Civil National Business Centre in Northampton dated 22nd November. 

From reading previous threads I am unsure what my best course of action is from here?

Any help or advice would be much appreciated as this just doesn't seem fair at all! 

Thanks in advance.

DCBL are such ignorant idiots. The PCN is non compliant as the land is covered by bye laws so they cannot pursue the keeper. By Law the PCN not being compliant means that only the driver can be pursued.  So what DCBL ae going on about by saying that they can pursue you under PoFA 2012 is utter hogwash.

You're right that it is a scam - and has been exposed as a scam on national television.

However, the court claim is legit and needs to be defended.

The immediately important things to do are AOS and CPR as dx has explained.

Did MET send you a Letter of Claim or similar before they started court action?

CPR is a simple template letter asking for the evidence they are relying on in the court case.  It's designed to get things like the Letter of Claim which you may have thrown away and also to embarrass them when they fail to provide legal permissions like Planning Permission that they've failed to obtain.
