    Draft Defence Statement for checking please 2nd Oct 19 at 5:38 PM
    PLEASE READ THE BOTTOM OF THIS THREAD for my final draft defence based on all feedback received and reading the newest guidance and NEWBIES thread. Feedback welcome and thanks for everyone who has supported and responded so far

    I've tried to delete my old comments to save confusion and left out the official format (defendant/claimant) just for copy and paste ease, so my details are not included.

    That's about the right length. EVERY paragraph needs a number. Are points 1, 2 & 3 still in use on Bargepole's concise defences? I thought he had shortened it.

    Thanks. Iíll number the first 2 points. I did use and reference Bargepoleís points but these are just more specific to my case as I recieved Ďdetailedí PoC after the initial claim form and I really wanted to drive home how Practice Direction hasnít been followed in hope it results in CEL withdrawing their claim as they and the judge will know they havenít adhered or followed protocol. Hence I added more detail to be specific to my case!

    I'd remove all this from #10, not needed:

    (a) If the claimant wishes to take legal action on any outstanding parking charges, they must ensure that they have the written authority of the landowner (or their appointed agent) prior to legal action being taken.
    (b) The written authorisation for that time must also set out.
    (i) The definition of the land on which they operate, so that the boundaries of the land can be clearly defined.
    (ii) Any conditions or restrictions on parking control and enforcement operations, including any restrictions on hours of operation.
    (iii) Any conditions or restrictions on the types of vehicles that may, or may not, be subject to parking control and enforcement.
    (iv) Who has the responsibility for putting up and maintaining signs?
    (v) The definition of the services provided by each party to the agreement.
