    Should I appeal?

    Should I appeal? 4th Dec 17 at 4:57 PM
    Hi guys,

    Looking for reassurance really as Iím in two minds having read the advice in the newbies thread whether to ignore or appeal. What would you do?

    Basically I had a pcn issued by northern parking services. The alleged incident happened on 29 June and was for returning during a no return period. There was no windscreen pcn and the ntk wasnít issued until 11 september, so outside of the 56 days, therefore no keeper liability.

    No evidence has been provided that the driver did return to the car park within the no return period, there is just a single photo of my car parking up. I can clearly see from the photo that I was not the driver.

    I have missed the 28 day appeal period. My fault entirely, I simply didnt open the letter, for no better reason than I was busy and it looked like junk mail. The first letter I opened was a debt recovery letter, whack also looked like junk! Iíve had a subsequent letter from the debt recovery company headed legal recovery action and warning of the impacts of a ccj.

    I am torn between sending a late appeal to the operator , and ignoring the letters entirely.

    Does anyone know if northern parking services are likely to take this to court?

    as its too late to do anything as yet , I would ignore pending either an LBC or MCOL being issued

    if NPS use gladrags services, gladrags will probably push them into a court case

    try the BMPA zendesk for an idea on how likely they are to issue an MCOL

    Hmm maybe I should make a complaint about their threatening and misleading letter instead!

    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.

    Trading standards...they are purporting to be bailiffs and are not. Aggressive and misleading business practices...

    DCBL are both , check out the tv programmes

    in this case they are acting as scary (not) debt collectors because they have no court order , so no warrant of control, and no high court writ either

    these debt collectors do this 24/7/365 and despite complaints to all and sundry , including MP`s , nothing has been done about them , yet

    go ahead if it makes you feel better, but dont expect it to change matters

    your time and energy is better spent preparing for a possible LBC or MCOL

    as per the advice above .... the murky world of parking on private land does not have the normal ... who to complain to ....

    how ever


    this is a copy of a post by Bargepole ....

    "Some action at last:

    http://services.parliament.uk/bills/2017-19/parkingcodeofpractice.html

    This Private Member's Bill has Government and cross-party support, and stands a good chance of making it into statute.

    The full text of the clauses will be published nearer the date of the second reading, but my sources tell me it's something we should support.

    Now would be a good time to write to your MP urging them to support it."

    good luck

    Ralph
