I received a PCN from APCOA at Kemble station car park back in December 2014 for parking in an unmarked bay. The car park was full and I appealed as the alternative was to park in the street and obstruct traffic all day or go where I parked which was in a place next to other cars not causing any obstruction but not in a bay. APCOA rejected my appeal even tho' I provided photographs to show no obstruction. I have now received a letter threatening court action if I do not pay £150 - yet the PCN only refers to a £100 parking charge, discounted if I paid within 14 days to £50. I have read a lot a comment saying 'stick to my guns', don't pay, as the charge is excessive and unfair, but what is my position? I feel the charge of £150 is excessive and is more than originally stated. What is my position? The most recent letter refers to another letter of 22/5/2015 which I have not received (the letter I had was 1/6/2015.....) it seems to me that the Debt Recovery Plus Ltd letter sent on behalf of APCOA is poor, unfair and just a money grabbing exercise. Any assistance would be welcomed. Yours sincerely, R.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
