Reporter didn’t spot the small sign in the entrance at first
Parking Ticketing Ltd is a member of the British Parking Association, which issues Operation Requirements to its members.
These include putting up entrance signs to “establish a parking contract” with motorists, setting out terms and conditions of the site.
It’s guidelines state: “In all cases, the driver’s use of your land will be governed by your terms and conditions, which the driver should be made aware of from the start. You must use signs to make it easy for them to find out what your terms and conditions are.”
There are signs in the car park which explain the terms and conditions, and there is a small sign on a lamppost at the entrance which states: “Vehicles must park in marked bays only.”
Though Kentish Express reporter Aidan Barlow explored the site, and he said: “I drove to Eureka Place and was looking for an entrance sign. I didn’t spot the small sign in the entrance at first, as it is obscured by the traffic lights and is not immediately recognisable, I only found it later on, so drivers who have not visited Eureka Place would probably struggle to spot it.”
