Borehamwood Shopping Park restrictions changed back to three hours
Borehamwood Shopping Park is set to revert back to three hours of free parking after a huge uproar.
Motorists vowed to boycott the Theobold Street retail area after managing agents Jones Lang LaSalle imposed a two hour limit on its car park.
Debenhams, due to open in the park alongside Next, Boots, Outfit, and New Look, yesterday ordered JLL to explain their reasoning behind the decision.
In a statement to the Borehamwood Times, the company said: “We welcome shoppers to the park and are pleased to be able to offer free parking. However, we trialled a reduction from three to two hours due to concerns that customers of the retail park have been unable to use the car park because many people have been parking to visit other local amenities.
“We have reviewed the situation and given the importance of the shopping park to the local retail environment and following contact from the local community who were unhappy with the reduction, we have decided to reinstate the 3 hours free parking with immediate effect.
"Car park management company Parking Eye will be changing the signage in due course.”
