    Highview parking charge letter!! 8th Jan 18 at 8:06 PM
    Hi, the keeper received a charge notice from highview parking today. The driver shopped at the Beacon Retail park Bletchley Milton Keynes for 3hrs31mins, when they were apparently only allowed 3hrs. The driver was with their daughter and 1yr old granddaughter. The driver shops there regularly as there is a number of shops they enjoy and a Gregg's for a much needed coffee in-between!! Tbh the driver has never taken any notice of parking charge signs so can't say where they are or how clear they are to read. The driver is gutted to have this charge as they are usually a careful driver/parker( NEVER PARKED IN DISABLED OR MOTHER/BABY BAYS). The keeper would love to ignore this charge but is a little fearful of any additional charges or court fines. Could anybody SIMPLY(as I need it explained simply) advise them on how to proceed?
    Cheers Bec ����

    follow the procedure in the NEWBIES FAQ sticky thread , post #1 for now and use the blue text template with no alterations

    edit your last post to remove any hint of who was driving on the day

    THE DRIVER drove on that day (so THE DRIVER shopped and only had 3 hours)

    THE KEEPER is the person who has received this pcn

    keep it that way from now on

    if HV reject your appeal , you will have the option of a popla appeal , dealt with in post #3 of that NEWBIES FAQ sticky thread

    also complain to the landowner and get it cancelled

    in future , read the signs , otherwise you will receive a lot more of these , in retail parks , supermarkets , hospitals , doctors surgeries , airports , railway stations ,

    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

    Send the blue text template from the NEWBIES FAQ sticky, post #1 (do not add or change anything) and HV will cancel. The fastest HV cancellation was within 2 hours - go beat it.

    Tbh the driver has never taken any notice of parking charge signs so can't say where they are or how clear they are to read.
    Then the driver needs to smarten up their act, otherwise they will be increasingly facing £100 penalties and we’ll be working overtime to get them off their tickets. No one should rely on us to do all the work for persistent ignorers of private parking signs.

    The keeper would love to ignore this charge but is a little fearful of any additional charges or court fines.
    Wouldn’t it be great. You’re lucky this is just HV, because there are endless other PPCs who would be lining you up already for court proceedings and looking to squeeze at least £250 from you.

    Could anybody SIMPLY(as I need it explained simply) advise them on how to proceed?
    This isn’t a ‘simple’ issue. You’re embroiled in a legal process and you need to get yourself out of it. We’ll help, but won’t do it for you. You will need to do research of your own to understand why you’re in this mess and how to get out of it.

    Luckily, as I’ve said, it’s only Highview. Simple enough?
    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.

    Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; show him how to catch fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.

    It's Highview! Don't overthink it. Easy peasy, I love their ones.

    You could have searched the forum for the word 'Highview' and discovered the fun game of trying to beat the 2 hour record (recently beaten down to 1.5 hours I think) whereby Highview skedaddle when they see the template appeal from the NEWBIES thread.

    We get posters to vie with each other to submit the forum appeal in working hours and count the minutes until Highview give up! Join in...
    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.
