    Already appealed and acknowledged I was the driver
    Hi,

    I recently had a windscreen PCN parking fine from an IPC accredited company. Before I found this thread i appealed and admitted i was the driver (now i realise that was a mistake..). My defence was based on the fact that there was a sign that says charges may be waived for genuine customers of tenants (which i was). They have now replied and rejected the appeal and I'm not sure what my next move should be. Any advice on what to do next would be much appreciated?

    Many thanks

    PLEASE PLEASE can someone advise me with what to do. I received a PCN parking charge in January which was for £60. I parked in a staff parking area on an NHS site as I had an appointment. Iím a single mum and I had to bring my 3 year old son along with me. I arrived early due to the parking issue and there were no spaces available. At the back of the medical centre there are building world being completed and the building contractors had used some spaces and also whilst I was waiting for a space I saw people park up and walk to the shops near by. All the surrounding streets are for resident permit holders only. I was going to be late and my son who is being toilet trained desperately needed the toilet so I thought I had no other option but to use the staff parking. As Iím a NHS staff nurse Iím fully aware of the parking issues and I had my NHS staff parking permit holder stuck to my windscreen. When I hit back to the car I found the ticket. I appealed and I put the reasons for parking in the staff parking area and I lost the appeal and now have to pay £100. So I got I touch with my local MP and he wrote a letter with reasons I should be granted the appeal. I also did I wanted to Re-appeal and the email stated Iíd receive a letter with how to do the but Iíve not yet received a letter. However last Thursday I received a letter from a company called UCS which is a dept collector and the letter stated I now have to pay £160 as a further £60 was added for administration. So on Friday I called the company to explain Iíve not received the letter and that Iíd got in touch with the MP whoís sent a letter to PCN, the man I spoke to was extremely rude and he upset me to the point I was crying at work. I told him he was upsetting me and that I wanted to speak to his supervisor which I couldnít speak to as she was on another call and so she would call me back today, Iíve not received a call as yet. He also said no letter from the MP had been received, which I got in touch with the MP again and he Re-sent the original letter with reasons I shouldnít have to pay the fine. Please can someone advise me with what to do? Any help/ advice would be greatfully received
    Thank you

    Sam

    Hello, I have read through your thread and many posts and I am undecided where to go with this one.
    I just receive a Parking Notice Reminder (19/3), yet I have not received any NTK.
    I am infuriated because at the time of the alleged incident, a ticket was bought and displayed in the windscreen of the vehicle . There should be a log of the vehicle registration in the ticket machine! The ticket has long ago been thrown away (never again!)

    Here are the particulars:
    Date of incident: 21/02
    Date of notice: 19/03
    CP Plus/Crown Wharf, WS2 8LL

    The letter states an NTK was sent on 01/03 which is BS.

    Can you advise please? I am reluctant to compalin on the basis that a ticket was bought because that would give away the drivers details. Or would they have anything to worry about?

    Kind Regards

    Hello

    Thank you for your help. I have copied the template appeal to a BPA registered company into an email ready to go. Am I correct in saying that this post suggests I should I include my postal address at the bottom of the email? If so, why?

    I often wonder why those huge private parking signs and their contents are so frequently ignored. Then up pops another post here .....!

    NTK 14 day limit
    I notice that for postal NTK's they must arrive within 14 days following the day after the offence? Looking at the link to the legal document it does say that in the event of a postal notification it shall be deemed to have been delivered within 2 WORKING (not weekends) days of posting unless proven otherwise. I had one from CEL which arrived on a Tuesday being day 15 after the event and have appealed based on this as your site did not clarify this point. Am I likely to win this argument at POPLA who have the appeal now? I am concerned I may have missed the boat for paying a lesser fee

    Yawn, why look at the DATE of a non POFA NTK. Who cares about the date?

    Look at the wording! It's not capable of holding a keeper liable ANYWAY even if sent earlier.

    How many times do people post about the irrelevant 14 days, re a non POFA Notice...

    Defence Statement
    First of all I would like to say a huge thank you to all who have spent time writing threads and helping others fight parking tickets. So much info and cases out there to read!

    My story...

    Received 3x notice to keepers from Minster Baywatch asking me to pay £60 for each alleged offence. I responded back to them confirming I actually hold a membership with them and pay them £38 per month to use the car park.

    They responded - my appeal has been forwarded to appeal team and if I don't hear back from them within 35 days I should contact them. I did not contact them nor received an response on any appeal.

    Letter before claim received - Gladstone solicitors. Contacted them advising I have not received a response back from Bransby Wilson. Received a very quick response back from Gladstone with 3 attachments on email claiming they have sent out letters confirming my appeal was lost and I owed them money.

    Completed pre-action protocol and sent REQUEST FOR FURTHER AND BETTER PARTICULARS to Gladstone. As expected, I have still not received any response back from Gladstones,

    Received claim form for county court - registered on MCOL and now need to prepare a defence statement. HELP NEEDED WITH THIS PLEASE.

    Background to my membership with Bransby Wilson (Minster baywatch manage parking for them on the site and have brought claim ). Held a membership with them since July 2017. Had two vehicles registered with them to park at the site. Bought a new car and didn't tell them I had changed registrations as my membership card was clearly displayed in the window at all times. (In their appeal letter they say that photographs and patrol officers notes (where applicable) will be taken into consideration. Just after I changed cars they installed cameras and new signs and thats when I received the 3 notice to keeper letters demanding payment.

    I have reviewed the car parking membership terms and conditions and under section 3. Licensee's undertaking it clearly states in 3.9 that I must inform Bransby Wilson immediately (should ANPR operate on this site) of any change of vehicles using this site to avoid receiving a parking ticket.

    3.8 states I must display my membership card - I did and it can be vaguely seen on the photographs on their parking charge notice.

    As mentioned above, at the time of me taking out the membership with them, the site was not ANPR operated! Bransby Wilson did not notify members that signs and cameras were being erected.

    I have 7 days to completed my defence statement and need help to write one. Is there anybody out there that can please help me. Thanks for taking to the time to read, it is very much appreciated.
