The Flame Pit / Re: Vehicle taken without Consent

mmd,

howz about posting a copy of the PCN (with personal details removed) so that we can see _exactly_ what you have been accused of?

Also your response, and the council's rejection letter.

OP,

the PCN number and car registration are still visible on both the front and back of the PCN.

Look at the "How to pay" sections with a black background (2 of).

I think that they sneakily do this on purpose, as quite a few people miss it (i almost did on my now cancelled Horizon PCN)!

Well a couple of hours ago i received a reply from Horizon Parking (after around 4 days)...

Dear Appellant,
 
Parking Charge Notice: XYZZY-PLUGH
 
Thank you for your recent correspondence regarding the above Parking Charge Notice, which we have reviewed.
 
I can confirm the Parking Charge Notice has now been cancelled and no further action will be taken in this matter.
 
Please note that once the Parking Charge Notice is cancelled the contact details are removed from the Parking Charge Notice and will not be retained for any purpose or shared with third parties.  We are, however, required to retain images and appeal correspondence for a period of 2 years by DVLA and the BPA and are not therefore able to delete these from our system. You can review our privacy policy at https://horizonparking.co.uk/privacy-policy/ or you can request that a copy is sent to you in the post by contacting us at the address below, if you have any queries regarding your data.
 
Yours sincerely,
Horizon Parking

...so many thanks to b789 and The Rookie for their replies to this thread, and to the others around the forum who suggested various PoFA appeal wordings.

I must admit that i am surprised how quickly Horizon backed down, especially as they must have spent a few quid requesting my details from the DVLA plus the cost of postage and printing. Gotta give them credit for not trying to drag things out!

Time for a celebratory beer ;)

b789, thanks for confirming that it is non-PoFA compliant - i'll use the standard text when i reply to them.

I wish that i had time to take it further, but at the moment i just want it out of the way. I am surprised that they have sent me a non-compliant letter, as other posts are suggesting that they are starting to "get it right" (although in my case, a double-dip should also get it cancelled if they get stroppy).

The driver entered the car park early morning (07:51 according to Horizon) and left around 08:00. They returned again around 15:30 and left several minutes later (thus also well over the required hour between visits). Tesco shopping receipts can confirm the approximate exit times.

This is obviously a double-dip, but additionally Horizon are probably not PoFA compliant - the latter hopefully an easier win.

Do the panel think that the "standard" PoFA response will get the ticket cancelled (to save arguing about orphan images and the like)?

Most of Manchesterís boozers are now cashless, it works in the landlords favour if you donít see actual cash leaving your pocket you donít get that sense what a waste of money so just tap tap away with your card.

Is this really true?

I'll be giving Manchester a wide berth "forever" now - i can't beleive that Northerners are so stupid :(


At least we can spell ībelieveī correctly,,,,,,sorry couldnīt resist  ::)  ::)  ::) .
I should have said town centre boozers tbh.

I was actually born quite a few miles north of Madchester(sp) ;), but seriously, are their town (city) centre pubs really cashless?

Sounds like we need to move the "Watford Gap" dividing line to the M62 or even further!!!

The Flame Pit / DVLA blitz in Birmingham
« on: July 28, 2023, 12:17:12 pm »
Well it looks like the DVLA were out early this morning in Birmingham.

Whilst popping out to the shops i spotted at least FOUR cars with wheel clamps courtesy of the DVLA (plus paperword stuck to the windsceen) within a few hundred yards.

I did a quick check on one of them (half parked on the pavement), and sure enough - no tax or MOT for over six months.

I certainly don't live in a deprived area, so was quite surprised how many there were (and probably loads more in the surrounding streets)!
