Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Ticket Dispute -

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.”
