Company run and owned by Steve Cheetham. Has taken to issue statutory "fines" which should be reported to your local Trading Standards. Only Local Authorities can issue Penalty notices. Changed from BPA to IPC in November 2015 after coming under pressure on the "penalty" issue. Up until 31st March 2015, this was Steve Cheetham as a sole trader. Move to the limited company version after that date.

Stage 1 - Notice to Driver
A Notice to driver either has to be place on the car or handed to the driver, otherwise it is treated differently under the legislation i.e has to be with the Keeper within 14 days for the Keeper to be held liable.
Stage 2 - Notice to Keeper
If you were not driving, this is the chance to tell them you were not. However you are under no obligation to advise who was driving unless there is an advantage to doing so. If in doubt ask us.
Stage 2a - Reminder to Keeper
Some companies send out a reminder 7 days after the Notice to Keeper letter. This confuses people as they think they have lost the chance to appeal. You haven't. You can still appeal within the 21 days though there is no legal reason why you cannot appeal at any time to "mitigate" loss.
Stage 3 - Appeal Rejection
Everyone gets one of these. Write back to the parking company and refute their allegations and invite them to make their claim in court where they will be asked to produce a contract with the site owners to demonstrate their claims are valid. We do not recommend a second appeal to the IAS as it is seen as wholly biased against in favour of the parking companies who pay their fees.
The signs have two purposes. The first is to warn drivers of entering a controlled space and the second is the terms applicable to that space. Missing and confusing signs are just part of the business model for parking companies so take your own pics.
