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?
