    Smart Parking Ltd fine

    Smart Parking Ltd fine 14th Mar 17 at 6:36 PM
    Hi
    I received a letter form DRP regarding a CCTV parking fine via Smart Parking Ltd (13mins over the limit but was in the Waitrose shop cafe after food shopping). We never received the original letter from Smart Parking Ltd so were a little surprised when the DRP letter arrived. I immediately went online and appealed directly with Smart Parking Ltd and today received a rejection email as it's over the 28 days - obviously though as it was over that when we got the letter from DRP.
    Only found this forum today unfortunately so my appeal, although covered our reasons didn't wash and wasn't;t anywhere near as good as the ones I found today here(!)
    Any ideas on where we can go from here? just ignore them?
    Thanks in advance!

    have you been back to the Waitrose shop cafe and shown recepts and kicked off?
    Have YOU had to walk 500 miles?
    Were you advised to walk 500 more?
    You could be entitled to compensation.

    Post Four of the Newbies Sticky deals with DRP completely.

    Other than a shop cancellation now all you need to do is sit it out for six years or until you recieve a proper court claim.

    IGNORE drp like the newbies sticky thread tells you to do

    and if not so SMART rejected your appeal, they should have included a POPLA code, if so, start drafting your popla appeal and get it submitted to popla

    any complaints about DRP being involved in an ongoing appeal go to AOS at the BPA, as mentioned in the NEWBIES sticky thread

    if its too late for any appeals , just IGNORE drp and only come back if not so SMART issue court papers (an MCOL)

    why have you not complained to the landholder and got a cancellation ?
    Newbies !!
    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se

    Because as I said, I hadn't found this forum with all this great advice until the other day

    I didn't get a popla code in the rejection email. So will work on that. I will also be going to the shop to see what they can do today
