  • One Parking Solutions

    I have defended a parking charge notice issued to me in a hospital car park where I was attending a meeting to support their governors (I am a volunteer patient governor of another trust). Despite me disputing the charge One parking Solutions took a bulk court action via their usual court ( Northampton) which I have dealt with. Now I have just received a Notice of Allocation to Fast Track and a trial date following a Deputy District Judge considering the statements of case & directions questionnaires filed.

    The amount of the initial parking charge wasn't huge nor was the court sum sought (160 + costs) but I now feel out of my depth in what to do next and also if this does go to trial the claimant will pay a 545 court fee to go to that stage, so my parking charge is now looking North of 800 if I lose.

    The court has strongly suggested settling by means of the Alternative Dispute Resolution and I am frankly sick of all this and recovering from major open heart surgery I am just wanting it to all go away as it is getting more than ridiculous to be facing this kind of potential loss to seek a defense of a comparatively small parking charge. Any help or advice would be very gratefully accepted. I am retired but active and have income that would probably mean I will need to pay costs in full. HELP !

        But this amount and a parking charge is normally small claims track. Object to the track, you want small claims. I suspect they have asked for fast track so that they can make you liable for costs. There are very limited costs in small claim.

          Yes I agree, I was very shocked when I got this. On the advice of the court office I have e mailed them to ask the judge why he routed it tis way and if he would consider routing it via small claims

            UPDATE

            I have just had a phone call from the court. It was allocated to fast track in error by the court. They will re-issue as a small claims case.

            Lets see what that brings !! Thank you for replying to my post

              Although you have submitted your defence please keep this case in mind when you are presenting your case.
