    ParkingEye county court claim form
    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?

    Parking is free of you enter registration details on computer at the cinema, I can't remember if this was done or not.

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

    Would anyone make a suggestion on how I should proceed?

    Thank you in advance

    That explains everything you need to know at this stage.

    Before considering your Defence, do the Acknowledgement of Service as described in a pictorial dropbox link from that post.

    Do that now, before anything else, to give yourself an extra two weeks to compile your Defence.

    And yes of course speak to the cinema. If they can get it cancelled, because you are such a valued customer, so much the better.

    or even if they do not get it cancelled, get them to write a witness statement to the effect of the fact they have tried and failed, and do not want this to go to court

    if you dont ask , you dont get

    do the AOS as mentioned above (post #2 of the NEWBIES FAQ sticky thread)

    draft your defence, then post it on here below for critique

    the way this system works is

    you do the research

    you draft your defence

    you post it, people criticise it and add amendments etc, rinse and repeat

    once finished and approved you can sign and date it and email it within 28 days of the MCOL date , to the CCBC email address

    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

    Same as other ParkingEye cinema defence threads. There's a recent Odeon one for you to find.
    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.
