Hello,

new member, hope you can help me!

A member of my family parked at Cambridge North Station, an NCP site,  earlier this year and thought that they'd paid online.  

However they received a PCN letter saying they hadn't paid etc with ANPR shots.

They ignored this letter and the reminder and have now received a demand for £170 from bwlegal, NCP's debt recovery service.

They haven't interacted with NCP or BW in any way.

Am I correct in thinking that a station car park is governed by bylaws which effectively exclude them from using DVLA material to identify the driver/keeper of the car in question?

What is the best way to proceed?

Thanks very much for any help.

  • dx100uk changed the title to NCP/BW ANPR PCN - Cambridge North Station

please complete this

 

bw are not a debt collector nor are they owned by NCP, they are solicitors for hire.

byelaws play zero part in the permission or not for ncp to use the DVLA service.

do not appeal ever.

please scan bothsides of every letter to one multipage pdf after reading upload carefully.

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

We have other cases where NCP's software has been shown to be useless.

Well done your relative on not appealing.

They can probably ignore this made-up demand for an extra £70 from BW Legal, but please upload it anyway just so we can make sure it's not a Letter of Claim.

While scribbling I see that dx has uploaded the sticky.  Yes, please fill it in and upload all the documentation.

We could do with some help from you.

Well the good news is that there's nothing to worry about "immediately".  The letter is not a Letter of Claim, it's just BW Legal trying to scare your relative into thinking the amount has somehow gone up by £70 when it hasn't.

However, it's pretty silly to throw away paperwork when you're in legal dispute.

It's even sillier when the dispute is with a private parking company.  Maybe the company respected the POFA deadlines for keeper liability.  Or maybe they didn't.  Who knows?  The paperwork is in the bin.

Therefore they need to get a SAR off today to NCP (not BW Legal) to get the paperwork back.  They should stick in a Council Tax bill or something as ID, otherwise NCP will use the lack of ID as an excuse to not cooperate.  Get a free Certificate of Posting from the post office.

They also need to so some digging and find out if there are bye-laws.  i see Cambridge North is a new station so the bye-laws issue isn't cut & dried.

Obviously any proof of attempted payment would be useful too.

Unfortunately the person concerned is a teenager so silliness is second nature I'm afraid.  Meanwhile I found this elsewhere on this site re Cambridge North which suggests it is covered by bylaws? 

So what do we need to request from NCP via the SAR

 
So the above quote suggests to me that NCP at Cambridge North can operate outside the POFA guidelines in any case? See my highlight in red here.

Received a PCN for unpaid parking at Cambridge North station...On Railway Land managed by NCP, we currently enforce under contract law. We are not allowed to use the provisions of The Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 (POFA) & Keeper Liability as Railway Land is exempt from this. Therefore timescales defined in POFA are not required to be met but there is an expectation that if an operator does not make use of Keeper Liability provisions, they are expected to adhere to the DVLA’s guidelines and contractual requirements to issue the Parking Charge Notice (PCN) no later than 7 months after the parking event.

This is the biggie!

If they cannot use POFA, they can ONLY pursue the driver.

So, as long as no-one engages with the fleecers, they will never know who that is...

Can you post a link to this info?

Just click on SAR read and follow the instructions...

What brilliant digging!  Well done.

However, we have another NCP thread where their rubbish software didn't take payment and where they didn't respect POFA - but they are still taking the motorist to court in the hope the person will buckle and will give in.  So I'm afraid it's the long game when it comes to fighting the fleecers.

Certainly get the SAR off.  There are other things that are probably wrong with the PCN.  It's also highly likely that they will try to pretend that POFA applies until they're challenged by which time they'll have tied themselves in knots.

Probably wrong choice of wording on my part.

Just don't admit (even accidentally) who was driving...

This is why we don't recommend appealing.

Yes, best to include the PCN number and vehicle registration, the poor dears won't be able to find the information otherwise.

Make sure you get a free Certificate of Posting as NCP are not very good with SARs.  In fact if you want a good laugh read this short thread  https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/452147-loc-to-ncp-for-failure-to-supply-sar-paid-in-full/#comments
