    PCN Ticket IBIS Crewe Quandry

    PCN Ticket IBIS Crewe Quandry 21st Sep 17 at 9:43 PM
    Hi Everyone,

    I've read the newbies post regarding the parking tickets and just wanted to post this situation to see if you can help.

    The car was parked in the Hotel carpark which is next to the place of work. It has reserved parking spaces marked for the company but apparently the Hotel no longer supports this. The car was parked there on the third and fifth day from start of the job, at the time a ticket was not purchase due to the "reserved company parking spaces" - PCN(s) were received through the post some days later.

    When we received the first one, I googled what was the best course of action and came across the post on this forum. I decided to appeal as per the BPA post. Afterwards we received the second PCN, which I have not appealed or done anything with yet.

    The first appeal has been rejected, so I guess my question is:-

    Due to the fact that a ticket was not purchased because of the reserved parking, and that the appeal has failed - what is the best course of action now?

    Many thanks for any help that you can give.

    Unfortunately, the second appeal has been unsuccessful, what are the next steps that we can take now?

    You now do nothing.

    As described in post #4 of the NEWBIES FAQ sticky thread, ignore all debt collector's letters.

    Only react if/when you receive a Letter Before Claim or official court papers.

    Thanks KeithP, and ignoring it now doesn't affect credit rating etc?

    you would have to lose in court not pay the judgment within one month and let it slide into a CCJ before any credit rating is affected

    it is ignoring the court judgment that trashes your credit rating

    so if it hasnt been to court ....................

    if this is Parking Eye , they have 6 years to issue a court claim, so bear in mind that if it remains unpaid they probably will issue an LBC and then an MCOL

    so if you are prepared to go to court , get all your ducks in a row and save all evidence , statements etc for any court case for 6 years

    Well, the payment that they are requesting is far greater than is acceptable - if they were merely requesting the payment cost for the day, which I believe is something like £5, then it wouldn't even be an issue.

    ParkingEye v Beavis and the Supreme Court rather destroyed that argument.
    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.

    Presumably the date of the "infringement" is 2017? It seems clear that the signs on the site have changed. The entry sign on Google images may be inadequate (on the RHS of the road only)

    Were you parked in a marked bay (i.e. was it painted on the space that the bays were reserved for the adjacent company)?

    Yes the incident happened this year, also the car was parked in bays that were marked for the adjacent company.
