Parking enforcement notice


Recommended Posts

My local Halfords have put a single sheet piece of paper up saying anyone parking in their fitting bay will be prosecuted, etc. I didn't even notice it until I got back to the car. I parked there as all the other spaces bar disabled were full.

The regular car park upstairs is owned by the council, but the Halfords section is private afaik

Should I be worried?

The way I read it the sign is advising that the local council enforces the parking and they are just warning people of such.

If it is intended as a statute parking enforcement sign then it is unenforceable as it does not follow BPA guidelines and legal requirements.

Any ticket issued by a private parking enforcement company would be void.

Anything issued by a council enforcement officer would only be lawful if the whole car park is posted as being under their control.

I think tbh that they have had cases of people parking up, scarpering and being gone for hours.

If the level for Halfords is confirmed as Halfords own land then it's not enforceable by the council and that is not sufficient to have a valid fine applied independently. However, If the car park is assumed Halfords but still Council owned then the council cam enforce it.

Either way, if you didn't have a ticket on your return your likely fine.
