A Parking Charge Notice is issued when a driver parks a vehicle in contravention of the Terms and Conditions stated onsite via signs at the entrance and in other places around the site.

What should I do if I get a Parking Charge Notice?

Details of how to pay or appeal and what to do next will be shown on the Parking Charge Notice. If you ignore the notice you will lose the option to pay at the reduced rate.

DO NOT IGNORE A PARKING CHARGE NOTICE – IT WILL NOT GO AWAY!

All vehicles issued with a Parking Charge Notice are photographed for evidential purposes and if unpaid the registered keeper’s details may be requested from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (D.V.L.A)

Once the Parking Charge Notice is issued it cannot be cancelled by a parking attendant. Threatening behavior, verbal or physical abuse towards attendants will not be tolerated, and will be reported to the Police. Although we appreciate that you may be upset or annoyed at receiving a Parking Charge Notice, we will only cancel a ticket when it is justifiable and valid to do so.
