    Too late for a POPLA appeal?

    Too late for a POPLA appeal? 12th Jul 18 at 3:05 PM
    I had a ticket from Britannia Parking a few months ago, that I appealed with them (cribbing various bits that seemed to apply from threads on this forum). Unsurprisingly the appeal was rejected telling me of a Supreme Court ruling that their charge was lawful.

    I was parked over two hours in a badly signed car park that has featured many times in various posts here. Paying the 100 charge just seemed wrong. I intended a POPLA appeal but seeing how much work was involved to do it properly, I just didn't get round to it.

    I have since had a letter from Debt Recovery Plus asking me to pay them 160 before a certain date (since past). I am happy to follow advice in the Newbies Thread ignore such a demand and see if their client really would like to take court action over it, but tactically, should I still appeal to POPLA at this late stage?

    do not use any forms, none at all

    do your defence in word , save as a pdf , print , sign and date it , scan it back to pc, save as a pdf (a signed and dated pdf)

    email it as an attachment to the CCBC , the details are clearly given in the post above by KeithP

    do this tonight , asap, because you missed the court deadline of yesterday

    Don't use the form at all.

    Crack on with your Defence and file it as described above.

    Just use bargepole's concise defence and get it in (see NEWBIES thread).

    Defence now submitted according to the advice given, and an acknowledgement has been received.

    A bit daunting picking out the relevant bits from the Newbies thread, but I have new appreciation for the efforts in compiling this by you and the other stalwarts on this forum.

    OK now stick around and read bargepole's post about COURT PROCEDURE to be ready for the next stages and so you don't have to ask us about little tick boxes on the DQ (or worse, miss it...or overlook WS & evidence stage).

    This is all spelled out in the NEWBIES thread. You've jumped one hoop so far!

    Stanley St, if I were you I would be phoning the CCBC, phone number on your Claim Form, tomorrow morning asking them to urgently process your Defence. This is to reduce the risk of a Default Judgment before it gets properly filed.

    I phoned CCBC this morning, and I was reassured that they prioritise the processing of Defence and are several days behind in the processing of Default Judgements. In fact today they are still working on Judgements from 22 March. Despite my lateness, time still seems to be on my side.

    OK now stick around and read bargepole's post about COURT PROCEDURE to be ready for the next stages and so you don't have to ask us about little tick boxes on the DQ (or worse, miss it...or overlook WS & evidence stage).

    Why not? Knowing what they hold about you might be enlightening and potentially useful for your own WS.
    Please note, we are not a legal advice forum. I personally don't get involved in critiquing court case papers, so unable to help on that front. Please don't ask.

    it also makes them do some work, so if it were me I would be causing them as much work as possible, due to the fact of them causing me work in defending a court claim


    plus you never know what can happen when they start digging around, sometimes they even cancel due to finding some flaw they missed, like BRIT did recently when they started cancelling due to "complying with the BPA CoP"
