Parking Eye makes changes to parking times in Borehamwood Shopping Park

Borehamwood Times: Changes to parking times in Borehamwood Shopping Park Changes to parking times in Borehamwood Shopping Park

Drivers are being warned about changes to Borehamwood Shopping Park’s car park.

The centre, in Theobold Street, now only allows shoppers to park for two hours free.

People are also now banned from returning to the car park within three hours of leaving on the same day, no matter how long they have parked for.

Previously, motorists were allowed to park in the area, which is managed by Parking Eye, for three hours a day.

Those who flout the rules will be fined £85.

It is not just tow hours for free it is two hours maximum, there is no option to pay to stay longer. That will not be good for Borehamwood as if you go shopping then have lunch that will take over two hours. This will just make the Tesco car park busier.

You won't be "fined" a penny. Parking Eye (PE) are a private company and are not able to issue fines. You will be sent an invoice for £85 for losses incurred by PE due to you overstaying the two hours. There are numerous places to receive good advice in how you don't pay these cowboys a penny.

Who allowed these absolute lowlife to suddenly out the blue introduce this? Surely it cant be the council who wish to bring life back to the high street? And if these bandits did do this then surely they cant just change the signs over night without weeks of prior notice. Borehamwood residents have been parking there for years with the 3 hour rule. Do these despicable thieving scumbags expect people who park there every day to actually check the signage every day for a possible change?

So if you drive in, then drive around and have to leave because you can't find a space, you can't come back the same day?
Why don't they do somehing usefull like clamping down on able bodied drivers using the disabled bays to shop in Argos?
Because they can't do it with cameras and a computer, that's why...

What Cretin allowed this to happen ? Words fail me,this will discourage shoppers to use the cafe's etc, In a time where shop owners need all the help they can. If the clown who gave the go ahead with this can give a proper reason for this implementation I would love to hear it.!!

The reason they have introduced the 2 hour limit is simple, Parking Eye LTD will make a lot more unlawful money. Anyone who gets an unlawful fine should appeal to POPLA, where 99% of fines get dismissed, and if they get you to court then they will lose, as they are acting outside of the Law, Judges are getting wise. Northumbria Health Care Tust have just cancelled all their contracts with parking eye, they are all over the news

This is not suprissing though.
If you recall, the Scouts used to have a stall in the Boulevard collecting for the Royal British Legion.
Three years ago, because a member of the public was "harrased" by Comic Relief fundraisers, the Boulevard banned ALL charities from collecting.
However, they generously said the Scouts could come in, if hey paid £300 to use the spot, but not on the Saturday before Remembrance Sunday as Sky had booked it.
