    Britannia Parking 15th Sep 17 at 5:32 PM
    Hi all,

    I recently parked in Beales car park after 7.30pm, which i ahve done many times before as i believed it was free after 6. I have recently been issued a ticket for not paying. It appears this has changed over to Britannia Parking and chargea are applicable 24/7.

    I received my first letter fining £60 if paid within 14 days. I have read a lot of forums and the vast majority say to ignore and after about 3 letters they will go away and its actually an invoice not a penalty fine.

    Most of these forum posts are a few years old now and i am looking for the latest information before i end up regretting ignoring the letters and get taken to court. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks!!

    its not a "fine" its an invoice

    ignoring has not been correct for 5 YEARS !

    you missed reading the NEWBIES FAQ sticky thread at the top of this very forum, so please read it

    it contains the latest advice for any private pcn, including yours

    follow the advice for your PPC, checking which trade body they use first
    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

    I love easy ones like this. As I said in this thread on pepipoo, where I post as SchoolRunMum:

    http://forums.pepipoo.com/index.php?showtopic=113956

    Britannia ones are a cinch to win. In fact I am disappointed when I go to Waitys and fail to collect one!

    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.

    We cannot provide you with a silver bullet to get you out of this. You have to be in for the long run, and need to involve yourself in research and work for you to get rid of this. It is not simple. We will help, but can't do it for you.

    Kind of thought the NEWBIES thread covered that in the section about POPLA, not written for fun!

    End result v Britannia = they give up at POPLA stage when they see our template words.
