    ParkingEye county court claim form

    ParkingEye county court claim form 9th May 18 at 1:27 AM
    I've read through the newbies sticky thread and partly made my way through some of the other stickies.

    I have received the claim form for court and I'm in to my ninth day from the date on the form. I'm planning on putting in a defence online however just wanted some basic advice before starting.

    1. I have previously ignored all letters relating to the pcn
    2. The pcn was issued due to parking outside cinema
    3. I have proof of purchase of cinema tickets on email and bank statements


    I want some advice on when putting up a defence to the court should I mention I have tickets/statements or should I go down the more generic route with the templates and other defence options mentioned in the stickies?

    Would it be worth speaking to Cinema manager at this point or is it too late for them to cancel any county court claim?

    I don't have the original pcn, letters or envelopes.

    Would anyone make a suggestion on how I should proceed?

    Thank you in advance

    The advice to ignore was stopped years ago. Is it free parking to customers?

    Yes, free to customers but they need to enter details on a computer at the cinema. I can't remember if this was done but most likely not.

    You need to post this in The Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board (where the stickies are!) Ask a board guide to move it for the best responses.

    Well as I still have copies of the cinema tickets and bank statements I was thinking that could be used.

    But then didn't want to use that if it meant I can't use the other forms of defence mentioned in the stickies of the parking fines section.

    My original question still stands - in my defence should I mention I have proof of purchasing tickets for cinema at the time/date of parking or just go down the other routes for defence without mentioning this?

    Should I contact the cinema manager at this point tor is it too late for them to do anything?


    Is it possible to move thread to parking section?

    Almost every defendant here wins; only 2 lost in 2017. Loads of grounds for defence.

    The OP needs to start by doing the simple AOS online, explained in pictures in the NEWBIES thread.

    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.
