Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
I assume you are not the registered keeper of the vehicle?

Thank you. The Council have a limited time to send the Charge to the registered owner, if this is not done it is out of time.
Although you dont have to comply with the request as it would be for them to show it was your vehicle and registration number, you dont want to have to go through an Adjudicator etc.
I would therefore write back, saying they are out of time and enclose photos - just to get the matter resolved. After all you dont want bailiffs turning up at your door.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
