    Surely by now the SRA must be aware that this company is bringing their profession into disrepute.
    You never know how far you can go until you go too far.

    Hi sorry to jump the thread but is this a big enough find for a another 'golden ticket' opportunity to be caught at the POPLA stage? if so does anyone have any legal jargon I could test this with? If successful I can share on the POPLA threads?

    Is what a big enough ........... and yes it is poor etiquette to hi-jack someone else's thread apart from being very difficult to give different advice to two different posters on the same thread.  You could read the NEWBIE sticky and if you cannot find your advice there, jut start your own thread and get bespoke advice.

    I don't understand your question but most Britannia cases can be won at POPLA by pointing out the fact (probably) that their landowner authority is likely to be in the wrong Ltd company name and doesn't match the company number/name in the Notice to Keeper.  A fatal flaw for them.

     

    PLEASE CHANNEL YOUR ANGER ABOUT THIS PATHETIC CHARGE TO CHANGE THE WAY THE PARKING INDUSTRY WORK:

    CALLING ALL NEWBIES! 

     

    An urgent task – deadline approaching in a week or so:

    Please now make a real difference because not enough people have yet, and time is running out. 

    The Government is consulting for just a few more days, about a new statutory code of practice (CoP) and framework intended to rein in the rogue parking firms. 

    Does it go far enough?  Read and comment on the draft CoP proposal and the enforcement framework consultation (two separate consultation documents).

    HOW TO DO THE SUBMISSIONS:

    BSI PAS 232 – COMMENTING ON THE CODE OF PRACTICE AS DRAFTED:

    1.    You will need to register then log in, to comment on the CoP and enter an occupation even if you are retired or a homemaker.  

     

    2.    Register, log into the BSI page, and download & read the cover letter here:

    https://standardsdevelopment.bsigroup.com/projects/2020-00193#/section

     

    3.    Read the cover letter again and note the suggested extra questions... if you agree that, say, the 'loading/unloading and dropping off, asking for directions, and disabled people parking on double yellows as they can on street' activities listed should be exempt (not parking events, what do you think?) then please go to the Annexes at the end of the PAS Code and find the one about Exempt Vehicles and state what other activity you think should be added to the exempt list. 

     

    4.    Download the PAS itself and start commenting on what you wish to say something about.  Quick links to each section appear on the left of your page. 

     

    You don’t have to comment on everything, e.g. you might want to skip the definitions and focus on later sections, and certainly look at the Annex tables at the end that show things like consideration & grace periods and exemptions.

     

    5.    Submit comments when you are happy with them. Don’t just ‘SAVE’ and forget!

     

    THAT IS HALF THE JOB DONE!

    THE MHCLG CONSULTATION IS EASIER AS IT IS JUST A LIST OF QUESTIONS. 

     

    6.    You can do it first if preferred or pushed for time:

    https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=EGg0v32c3kOociSi7zmVqAVPfAOtwRxLhHRwQ610oElUMzhQSVo0WUQ4SERVSEZaUU9DTUhFQ1VMUy4u

    If your answers exceed 4000 characters (approx. 500 words to a single question or 16000 words (approx. 2500 words) for all the questions below, you can email your answers to [email protected] as long as you state who you are.

    THESE ARE THE QUESTIONS YOU WILL SEE, FOR RESPONSES TO THE FRAMEWORK:

    (free text)

     

    Q4 Please outline any alternative means by which the Code could be monitored and enforced. You may wish to cite evidence from other regulatory frameworks which are relevant.

    (free text)

     b) Mirroring the Local Authority system

    (free text)

     

     Q6.1 Please explain your answer. You may, for example, wish to make reference to other deterrent frameworks (for example, for railway tickets or traffic violations)

    (free text)

     

     

    Q7 What level of discount is appropriate:

    40% as is currently offered in private parking and suggested in the three-tiered system, or

    50% as is offered in Local Authority parking?

    a) 40%

    b) 50%

     

    Q7.1 Please explain your answer, including whether the discount should be set at a different level

     Q8 How should the level of parking charges be set and how should the levels be revised in future?

    (free text)

     

     

    Q9 Do you agree or disagree in principle with the idea of the Appeals Charter?

    Agree/Disagree

     

    Q9.1 Please explain your answer

    (free text)

     

     

    Q10 Do you agree or not that the examples given in the Appeals Charter are fair and appropriate? Agree/Disagree

     

    Q10.1 Please explain your answer.

    You may wish, for example, to suggest additional cases to be covered in an Appeals Charter or query existing examples.

    (free text)

     

    Q11 Do you agree or disagree that the parking industry should contribute towards the cost of the regulation?

    Agree/Disagree

     

    Q11.1 Please explain your answer.

    (free text)

     

    YOU CAN INSTEAD GIVE MORE CONCISE ANSWERS ONLINE, USING THE MHCLG PAGE LINK.

    Don’t forget that answering these questions is the easier bit…

    Looking at the BSI PAS (the draft code of practice itself) involves logging in and submitting comments again, and again and again and takes more time!
