MBC Parking Solutions Ltd has admitted being in breach of company regulations.
The PO Box address does not appear to exist, and there is no signage at this address. This does not therefore meet 'brass plate' requirements and is not a correct address for service.
The Royal Mail state this PO box has not been paid for and TR20 9WD is apparently not a valid postcode.
The Prankster has been led to suspect the correct address is Pengersick Lane, Praa Sands, Chenhal, Penzance, with the postcode either TR20 9SN or TR20 9SH.
Companies house has been informed and MBC have acknowledged the addresses are either out of date of fictional and will be updating the registry.
One of the reasons that addresses must be correct is for consumer protection. It is not known yet whether companies house is taking further action.
The Prankster wonders why the DVLA and BPA audits have not picked this up. If this kind of thing is not checked during the audit, then perhaps it should be. What else do these audits miss, and are they just a rubber-stamping exercise rather than any true attempt to make sure parking companies are compliant with the regulations.
