Hello from newbie, hope someone can help.

Whilst dropping my daughter off for her lesson, I parked on a parking bay adjacent to the main road near an industrial estate. This parking bay has been regularly used by parents dropping off their children and I have been doing this for more than a year. There are no signs indicating parking restriction of any kind.

Today on returning to the car I found a parking sign suddenly appeared in front of my car on a pole (wasn’t there 5 min before when I parked). Puzzled, I started looking around and noticed a guy planting signs (mostly placed in the hedge) and then taking pictures of cars parked. I confronted him but he just ignored me and continued to take pictures. The sign says £100 penalty for parking on private land.

Few of us exchanged details to be witnesses to this abhorent behaviour by that guy, just in case they issue a penalty notice. Is this legally enforceable? Thanks for your help.

Confirms our suspicions that the company is not the most ethical

Did you appeal that the signs were in process of being erected, as advised ?


Havent received a PCN for this yet.

The PCN received today is different date, almost 2 months earlier, 20th April, there were no signs. The signs went up (in the bushes) on 15th June and after the car was parked.

Ta.

4. Date and Time of Issue: 20th April. This predates the actual incident date. However, the car was also parked in the same place on 20th April (lessons for Children every Friday) but no signs were in place on that day. Hence I’m not sure if the PCN received today is related to my original topic.

I wonder if they even had a contract with the landowner on 20/04. Something very dodgy going on.

Exactly my concern too as the signs didn't go up until 15th June in the place where the car was actually parked.

Bigger concern is that the PCN claims that car was parked in Industrial Unit car park on the opposite side which is sign posted. Explains why they didnt offer any proof of breach.

Hi,
Situation as described by OP coming in the post today from Select Parking , titled "parking charge - notice to keeper".

So yes, they have obtained the owner details from DVLA somehow.

Like OP, saw a tall asian chap (most likely sole propreitor Mr SK ) taking photos of the vehicles hap hazardly using his mobile phone.. biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Units 3-8 Waterside drive, Langley SL3 is the site - which is right opposite to the AE Langley tuition centre.

They sent me a charge notice for parking with date, but no time?

Kind request to OP - please edit the title of the thread to add "select parking" if you could please.

Better idea - start your own thread with that title instead of hijacking Slumberished's
