PCN change of address

Hello helpful people,
I received a PCN from Ocean Parking in April 2023 which i unsuccessfully appealed. No surprises there. In July 2023 i moved to a new address and updated all my address details with the DVLA. I have access to my old address occasionally and now picked up a few letters of demand from Debt Recovery Plus and  a letter from CST Law (dated 3 Nov 2023) acting on behalf of DRP, suggesting i keep my address details updated with DRP.
If it gets to court stage, i don't want to miss actual court letters, but at the same time I don't want to communicate with DRP/CST. Do i update Ocean Parking with my new address via email/post? Or will they contact the DVLA again to get correct details? Many thanks,

    Yes, you update the shysters with your address but that is it. No other chit chat of any kind.

    Parking companies are only allowed to access DVLA data once, and always use this data unless you instruct them otherwise.
    Send a rectification notice to the DPO of Ocean Parking, instructing them to erase your data and replace it with your current address for service. Either do the same to the powerless debt collectors or tell Ocean Parking to instruct their agents to do it.
    Repeat the process if you move again within six years of the date of the alleged event.
    Make sure you use the word I have highlighted as it has a specific meaning where data processing is concerned.

    Meanwhile, Plan A is to complain to the landowner and your MP, and it is never too late to do so.

    You MUST tell them to erase the old address.
    PRIVATE 'PCN'? DON'T PAY BUT DON'T IGNORE IT (except N.Ireland).
