In 2015, The Supreme Court, has unambiguously confirmed that parking charges issued on private land are fully enforceable.
In the case of ParkingEye v Beavis  UKSC 67 their Lordships stated that private parking charges were enforceable because they served a legitimate purpose and were in the interests of the public generally. The case confirmed that the amount of the charge does not have to reflect any loss that might have been caused by breach of the terms and conditions of parking.

If you do appeal and do not hear from us within 28 days then please contact us, do not assume that your appeal has been successful.

You are advised to send postal payments by recorded delivery. All payments must be accompanied by the PCN number and the Vehicle Registration Number.
Payments received which are not accompanied by this information will be cashed but the creditor will be unable to allocate the payment to the correct PCN. The Parking Charge Notice will therefore remain unpaid and enforcement action will be taken. This will result in additional costs being incurred.
Failure to pay this charge may result in enforcement action which could include County Court proceedings and which may incur additional costs.
