    County Court Claim Form - PCM at Heath Parade - NW9

    County Court Claim Form - PCM at Heath Parade - NW9 29th Dec 16 at 2:20 PM
    Hi there, pleased to meet you all!

    I have fallen victim to the predators Parking Control Management at the infamous Heath Parade - NW9 location.

    To give you a bit of history...

    - I have been accused of parking at the above location and am now being chased for a £235.50 amount
    - The evidence shows I was at the location for 1min 50 secs
    - My hazard lights were on, as shown in the evidence, as there was an issue with my brakes at the time
    - I have a letter from Chevrolet which confirms there have been issues with certain cars' break fluid and that they will change mine free of charge

    I contend that:
    - No contract was formed between myself and PCM as the terms of parking are prohibitive and offer no service (see PARKING CONTROL MANAGEMENT (UK)-v-CHRISTOPHER BULL), and/or was not in my reasonable control to breach said terms (brakes issue)
    - There was apparently no grace period, as stipulated in the IPC Code of Conduct, of which PCM are a member and have been since 2014
    - The £150 they claim in PoC is not an realistic estimation of cost, and resembles a penalty, unenforceable by law
    - IPC Code of Practice also states that companies should not engage in predatory tactics, of which this more than likely falls under

    What I have:
    • I received the notice to keeper in July
    • I have received the debt collectors letters
    • I have received the letter before claim from Gladstones
    • I did nothing each time (reasons I will divulge later)

    I am now going to send the acknowledgement of service but would love help piecing together a defence. Any help soon is welcome!

    P.s. Hope everyone's had a merry Christmas! I certainly won't let this dampen the end of the year for me =)

    Labour councillor, Gill Sargeant.
    Someone local should tell her the latest...and ask how this £1million will be refunded?

    sorry you are right, not PCM. But still very incestuous that the solicitor acting for the claimant PCM is also sharing a director with a supposedly independent parking adjudicator

    (but looking at the types of agent that turn up to represent them in court, it seems to me lots of inbreeding has gone on among this nasty gang of dishonest scammers)

So he left the court without a stain on his character & went on shortly afterwards to join Gladstones where his character continues to be unstained.

    Some good news! I have just checked Heath Parade and it has now been taken over by the Council. Part of the parking bay is restricted for Goods Vehicles at anytime, and the other part is for general parking between 0700-2300 (Mon-Sun), 30 mins parking and no return in 2 hours. The PCM notices are still there, but I saw 'Mrs Sunglasses' (currently without!), on the other road - see next post - and she confirmed the Council had taken it over.

    The nearby road where PCM have signs is Cherry Close,
    NW9 5FP (although that maybe for some older property on the road), the new flats which is at right angles to the main road, and includes Panavia Court, is listed as the main road, Bristol Avenue, NW9 4BS. There is also a gated car park alongside the flats in Cherry Close.

    Congratulations
    Do not pay parking control management or gladstones solicitors for Heath parade parking nw9

    I won case today at Clerkenwell and Shoreditch County Court on simple fact that pcm do not have authority of the freeholder.

    Contact me for land registry documents and defence copy.

    Watch the second reading of a bill which should put these clowns out of business,

    complain to your MP and your local Trading Standards Department (in writing), do not bother with CAB who are ineffectual.
    You never know how far you can go until you go too far.

    i did go and look at the other parking controls around the corner and they do appear legitimate, not a scam like Heath Parade, as they are on actual residents parking bays for private flats.

    from the records i can see the land appears to be owned by Choices for Grahame Park so it depends on whether PCM have authority from them to manage that parking area.
