    PCM ticket what can I do ? 2nd Oct 17 at 11:54 PM
    Hi all.

    Thank you very much for this Fourm which is an amazing to help all people

    I got on a ticket from PCM - Parking contrrol managment (UK) Ltd for my car which i just rent it for one day. It parked on a road which is Semi-enclosed residential complex.
    Is there a deference between PCN and Pcm ?

    I red some advice in this fourm about how can write an email for private parking company.
    can I use the below text to send it to Pcm ? I thinkI have to change the words which is in red colour ?
    * I tried to attachment a copy image of the ticket but I can not. Sorry as a new user you are not allowed to post with links. This is done to stop spammers clogging up the site. Please edit your message below to continue.

    Dear Sir,

    Parking Charge Notice [0123456789]: Vehicle Registration [AA11ABC]

    I refer to the above-detailed Parking Charge Notice (“PCN”) issued to me by Highview Parking Ltd (“Highview”) as a Notice to Hirer. I confirm that as the hirer of this vehicle, I am its keeper for the purpose of the corresponding definition under Schedule 4 of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 (“POFA”) and I write to formally challenge the validity of this PCN.

    You will no doubt be familiar with the strict requirements of Schedule 4 of POFA to be followed in order for a parking operator to be able to invoke keeper liability for a Parking Charge. There are a number of reasons why Highview’s Notice to Hirer did not comply with POFA; in order that you may understand why, I suggest that you carefully study the details of Paragraphs 13 and 14 of Schedule 4 in particular.

    Given that Highview has forfeited its right to keeper liability, please confirm that you shall now cancel this charge. Alternatively, should you choose to reject my challenge, please provide me with details of the Independent Appeals Service (POPLA), their contact details and a unique POPLA appeal reference so that I may escalate the matter to POPLA.

    Thank you for your cooperation and I look forward to receiving your response within the relevant timescales specified under the British Parking Association Ltd Code of Practice.


    Yours faithfully,
    --------------------------------

    Thanks alot

    PCN = Parking Charge Notice

    PCM are the initials of your Private Parking Company (PPC)

    read the NEWBIES FAQ sticky thread at the top of this forum

    use the correct template in post #1 of that thread , depending which AOS your PPC is in

    acronyms are in post #9 of that same thread

    DO NOT REVEAL WHO WAS DRIVING , not on here, not in any correspondence , DO NOT phone anyone up
    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

    OK, but you didn't need a new thread until court claim stage because it won't just be cancelled.

    We win these at small claims court stage, so come back then.

    Ignore the fact PCM will reject the 'appeal'.

    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.

    But come back if you get a letter from Gladstones Solicitors called a 'Letter before Claim'.

    You would be wise to edit your original post too.

    Replace your second sentence of your second paragraph with:
    My car was parked on my road which is Semi-enclosed residential complex.
    As Redx said earlier:
    DO NOT REVEAL WHO WAS DRIVING , not on here, not in any correspondence...

    One of my neighbors advice me to talk to the complex management and they will talk to the parking company management to cancel the ticket.

    I sent him an email and thy answered me the below text:

    "Ordinarily we will not get involved with parking disputes whereby penalty notices are issued on the basis that a valid permit has not been displayed, if a vehicle is parked in an incorrect bay or outside of a designated parking area. This information should have been made known to you at the time of moving into the property, whilst there is ample signage across the estate to warn of parking penalties if a valid permit is not clearly on display. You are also able to contact the parking contractor by way of the advertised phone numbers with any queries, before taking a course of action of parking a vehicle on the estate.

    I will need to look into this matter further with my colleague on return to the office and one of us will revert back to you thereafter with a definitive response.

    If I can be of any further help then please do not hesitate to contact me
    ."

    The problem now is tomorrow is the deadline after that the ticket price will be go up from 40 Pound to 100 Pound.

    Am I had a mistake when I sent the email to him?

    Are you now considering paying £40 simply because it is less than £100?

    The choice is yours, but before you decide, re-read some of the earlier posts:

    Ok thank you very much. I will Waite if they want the court I will be there

    Another questions:
    A large number of neighbours have a parking permission from the parking management company in this private land. They pay 30 Pounds a year. Do I have to get a permit and pay the same amount as the rest of the neighbours ? Is the council approved and is this legal? Especially that there is no specific parking for each person who comes first stand first and the numbers of perking are inadequate !
