    NCP Help!? 12th Apr 18 at 10:30 AM
    Hi,

    I have read through the newbies must read thread however I am still a bit unsure what to do?

    The Radisson Blu in Birmingham directions lead you to the car park believed to be the correct one (the name of the road was the name of the car park so assumed it was correct) and that it could paid for the 24hrs parking at the hotel reception.

    I have since received a Parking Charge Notice dated the 9th April for 100 or 60 if paid within 14 days.

    I would like to appeal but not sure what is the best route to follow?

    Any advice would be much appreciated?

    thanks

    Follow the appeal advice in the Newbies FAQ thread

    Throughout here you are advised never to reveal who was driving.

    You need to edit your post to remove details of who was driving

    The ppcs monitor this forum and can use your posts against you

    thanks [/QUOTE]Assuming the dates you have given are correct, then the NTK has arrived to late for NCP to use POFA.

    For a parking contravention on 24th March, the NTK must arrive by 7th April at the latest; clearly being dated 9th April it cannot.

    Unless they know the driver's name then you'll win at POPLA.

    ... where we then paid approx 20 for parking in twice (once at the hotel for the night).

    I do not understand, please clarify.

    This is an entirely unregulated industry which is scamming the public with inflated claims for minor breaches of contracts for alleged parking offences, aided and abetted by a handful of low-rent solicitors.

    Parking Eye, CPM, Smart, and another company have already been named and shamed, as has Gladstones Solicitors, and BW Legal, (these two law firms take hundreds of these cases to court each year). They lose most of them, and have been reported to the regulatory authority by an M.P. for unprofessional conduct

    Hospital car parks and residential complex tickets have been especially mentioned.

    The problem has become so rampant that MPs have agreed to enact a Bill to regulate these scammers. Watch the video of the Second Reading in the HofC recently.

    http://parliamentlive.tv/event/index/2f0384f2-eba5-4fff-ab07-cf24b6a22918?in=12:49:41

    and complain in the most robust terms to your MP. With a fair wind they will be out of business by Christmas.
    You never know how far you can go until you go too far.

    You pay on leaving the car park, which was twice therefore 4-5 for the first few hours, then 16 for the over night parking at the hotel reception.

    None of that makes any difference; just use the template appeal from the NEWBIES thread that I've just edited and changed yet again, to stop people:

    (a) copying in full, the REALLY OBVIOUS final line that it used to have, that needed them to actually choose one or the other (IPC or BPA, and some just couldn't do it) and

    (b) not understanding the Section 10 notice section that caused PPCs to refuse that, and some newbies actually started threads thinking their appeal was rejected when it REALLY OBVIOUSLY wasn't...

    So hopefully the new template is even simpler.
    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:
    Top of the page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.
