    Highview parking fine

    Highview parking fine 12th Apr 18 at 6:26 PM
    Hello all,

    In March I received a demand from DRP demanding I pay for a fine from Highview parking limited. As anyone would, I looked online to see how I could fight this as they state I've overstayed in a carpark I frequently use even though I'm certain I never have.

    Looking through the newbies thread I avoided DRP as stated and issued an appeal to Highview directly. Today I received a response from them saying as it is outside the time limit and they cannot consider my appeal.

    DRP stated that the incident was on 7/10/2017 but I've never actually received anything from Highview themselves, I suspect this is due to me selling my car and moving within a relatively short space of time. In the first letter from DRP they did state something about having to find my address through the DVLA. So I've no evidence of my supposed misdemeanor and no POPLA code or anything (however I suspect I'm out of the window for that appeal also) despite me asking for all this in my email.

    Also today I've received a letter from DRP saying that they have advised Highview to contact their solicitor and take me to court.

    What can I do at this point? Other than pay it? Has there been any cases of Highview following through on this?

    Many many thanks in advance.

    do nothing , just IGNORE them

    come back if you receive a formal LBC in the post , or an MCOL from Northampton CCBC

    at this point , only a landowner cancellation can help you , otherwise you at an impasse

    you DO NOT have to pay it , UNLESS a judge says so, in court
    Newbies !!
    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se

    Here's Highview record of taking court proceedings against their non-payers.

    Two thirds of a million tickets issued in the past 3 years - not one single court case. Something tells me they're not going to start with you!
    We cannot provide you with a silver bullet to get you out of this. You have to be in for the long run, and need to involve yourself in research and work for you to get rid of this. It is not simple. We will help, but can't do it for you.

    Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.

    That's great, let's see what happens then. I'll put in a complaint to the shop in question and of course, update this thread with the outcome.

    Thank you again!
