This page will collate information to help those people who have received unfair fines from One Parking Solution, who administer the
beach front car park in Llangrannog.
If you cannot pay within 10 minutes of entering the car park, you should leave and not park there, or you will be fined.
They do not listen to reasonable excuses. If the machine is broken, they still expect you to pay.
Note that this car park is no longer run by the Ship Inn. The owner of the car park, Mr Anthony Ramsay Williams, does not live in the area
and has appointed One Parking Solution to run the car park. The Welfare Committee and local people tried very hard to get rid of this
company, but we were unsuccessful, and the owner is not sympathetic.
Please read all the information here and if you still have questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any information which may help others appeal unfair fines, please let us know.
This page will be updated as we know more. UPDATED 8 May 2021.
Here are some articles about OPS from the Sunday Times:
Village parking options
There is a large free car park field five minutes up the road. In high season and guidelines permitting, the village-run Park & Ride scheme will be running again. Please do not park blocking access to the toilets, on double yellows, where the cones indicate the Cardi Bach bus has to turn round, in the boatyard, or on the hatched areas at the beachfront.
You can appeal to via the One Parking Solution website https://oneparkingsolution.co.uk/
If you are unhappy with the verdict, you can appeal via POPLA, an independent appeals service for Parking Charge Notices issued on private land. https://www.popla.co.uk/
It is very important that you reply and defend the claim, otherwise you will automatically get a default CCJ after 14 days and the court will order you to pay the full amount within 30 days. If you don’t pay in full, the CCJ will be registered on your credit file, and you might also get bailiffs from the court.
The first thing you need to do, within 14 days of the claim date, is to do an Acknowledgement of Service (AOS).
Log on to www.moneyclaim.gov.uk using the password on the claim form and acknowledge receipt of the claim, denying all the debt. Do not submit a defence yet. This will give you a total of 33 calendar days to submit your defence online.
Here is a guide to doing the AOS. You could get a CCJ if you don’t do anything. You only have 14 calendar days to do the AOS, from the issue date on the claim form.
See this post on MoneySaving Expert which explains the claim form procedure.
