Because they did not agree with my reasons stated in TE7. I told them I had not received the penalty charge notice nor the follow up papers showing the photos, etc., from the parking warden. Below is what Lewisham Council say about this matter.
'~A Notice to Owner sent on 07/08/12 to the registered keeper as supplied by DVLA was not responded to within 28 days therefore, a Charge Certificate issued 17/09/12 increased the amount outstanding by 50%.
The PCN was registered and accepted @TEC on 16/12/12 and a Witness Statement was sent on 17/12/12. A warrant requeste4d 26/11/12, authorised 27/11/12. The account was passed to bailliffs.
Lewisham advised by TEC Late Witness Statement filed, case on hold with bailiffs.
The appellant does not disclose any reasonable explanation or grounds for the significant delay in this matter nor in the filing a statement outside the relevant timescales.
The London Borough of Lewisham have acted within the Statutory Guidelines at all times in this matter and would request the late statement refused'.
This is their opposition.
Is this enough for you?
FOR JOMO 1972
I am not sure but I filled in the forms anyway. I did not receive the PCN nor the follow up papers as Lewisham Council said I had.
If I had, I would have fought it at that point, but I do not know what I fighting as I have no hardcopy evdience.
Does this help?
I KNOW I WAS OUT OF TIME THAT'S WHY I PUT IN A LATE WITNESS STATEMENT.
HOW CAN I MAKE A STAT DEC WITHIN 21 DAYS OF RECEIVING A PCN IF I DIDN'T RECEIVE A PCN.
THIS IS WHY I PUT IN A LATE WITNESS STATEMENT AS WELL.
I SAID I DID NOT RECEIVE THE PCN.
MY APOLOGIES, I MISSED YOUR QUESTION ... STRESS.

'I DID NOT RECEIVE A PENALTY NOTICE ON MY CAR ON THE DAY IN QUESTION. I DID NOT RECEIVE ANY FURTHER PAPERS FROM LEWISHAM COUNCIL SHOWING ME WHAT I HAD DONE WRONG. THE FIRST I HEARD OF IT WAS WHEN THE BAILIFFS SENT ME A LETTER.
I was going to see a psychiatrist on the day in question and it was stressful for me. I was not so stressed that I would not have noticed a PCN on my car. This is sloppy work by Lewisham Council and a lazy way of carrying on, trying to squeeze money out of people without first following their own guidelines.
I absolutely oppose this PCN. I might be stressed but I am not stupid.
I'M SORRY I'VE GOT PROBLEMS WITH MY SON HE'S FLIPPING OUT SO WILL HAVE TO CLOSE THIS. I WILL COME BACK TO YOU WHEN THINGS SETTLE DOWN INDOORS.
HELLO, SORRY ABOUT THAT, EVERYTHING IS CALM NOW SO I CAN CONCENTRATE.
WHAT I SAID ABOVE IS WHAT I ACTUALLY PUT IN THE APPLICATION TO FILE A STATEMENT OUT OF TIME/EXTENSION OF TIME. IS THIS WHAT YOU ARE ASKING?
