    Looking for advice 27th Apr 17 at 10:18 PM
    Hi,

    I had a parking 'ticket' through the post from New Generation Parking Management back a few weeks ago.

    To give a bit of background I had attended a charity event and mistakenly parked on land owned by the business premises next to the building where the event was being held. I genuinly had no idea I was breaking any rules by parking where I did.

    The notice I received in the post told me I had to pay £100 or £60 in the first two weeks. I ignored this letter and I have now received another in the post this week which is headed 'Final Reminder'.

    I've read the newbie sticky post at the top of the forum but I was wondering my best course of action now as I am now outside of the appeal window?

    is a a distinct issue.
    Just a typo.
    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:
    Top of the page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.

    So I've had a reply from WH. It appears they do not want to play ball...

    mmmm, the infamous TIM HAWKER who it seems cannot spell acknowledged

    it also lists ZZPS as the client , yet a PPC is the true client (NGPL) , not some sc@mming debt collection agency such as ZZPS

    its probably a ZZPS letter on WH headed notepaper
    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

    Yes, no surprise with that 'cop out' response.

    You need to sit tight now and leave the next move to them. You've made you position clear and you've sent them some strong messages which, if nothing else, will show them that any court proceedings will be robustly, and very competently, defended.

    Let us know if you hear anything else but, in the meantime, it wouldn't hurt to start working on your defence.

    Are they able to ignore my request for information in light of the new protocol that came into effect on the 1st?

    No, not if they intend to comply with the new rules. The fact they are not, obviously helps your case and you'll make a 'big thing' of it in your defence
