Re: parking Ticket issued outside the market hall, with a disabled badge?

Tuesday, 23 October 2012Eastgate Retail Park - parking update
After a very long a protracted dispute between the owners of Eastgate retail park and the parking company they employed, the contract between them has now been terminated.
The Deputy leader of the Hyndburn Council, Cllr Clare Pritchard said;
“The Council has had many complaints about the way the parking restrictions were imposed on Eastgate.

I must stress that this car park is not owned by the Council, however we’ve worked hard along with local MP Graham Jones, on behalf of the people affected to try and get a satisfactory resolution to the problem. It is very disappointing that to date no clear instruction has been given regarding tickets issued between 2/6/12-8/7/12 in regard to outstanding fines and refund to those who have paid.

A promise was made months ago to waive outstanding fines. I have written to letting agents to express my concern that the most honest were being treated most unfairly; that those who had already and unfortunately paid won't be receiving a refund. What message does this send out about the companies involved and about society in general?


Both Excel car parking and the owners (via their letting agents) have created and overseen chaos where money, profit and greed and have come first, ripped off customers come last. This issue that has dragged on for months with no responsible outcome from either company. After a very long a protracted dispute between the owners of Eastgate retail park and the parking company they employed Excel, the contract between them has now been terminated.


There seems to be a case where the civil fines were wholly disproportionate and may not be supported in a court of law.
Cllr Pritchard continued; “This is a highly regrettable situation where the letting agent and the car parking company seem to have kicked this issue into the long grass. The good news is that parking on Eastgate is now back to 3 hours, in line with the free parking policy throughout the rest of the town and we will continue to pursue this issue on behalf of residents.”
In short I would encourage people not to use this car park as the owners are clearly unreliable; they have shown they will randomly and unfairly change free car parking times and terms with minimum notice and hand out costly fines like confetti.


It's a shame that major companies like Morrisons have remained silent on this issue and shows that interests do not lie with their customers.

Re: parking Ticket issued outside the market hall, with a disabled badge?

It seems the council turned to a private company to do their dirty work, not realizing that by doing that they were attempting to get us to comply with that company (that we dont have a contract with)....... Maybe if they'd kept the old parkies they would have had more luck ...........MAYBE they drank the fluorided water and got flu shots

I assume it's the same for the owners of the retail park issuing unlawful notices/fines via excel or any other company

Glad i'm not a cash cow

Re: parking Ticket issued outside the market hall, with a disabled badge?

was it a private parking firm? don't pay your fine because you have caused no loss or harm and they can't charge or fine you.the land around the town hall and market hall is not private land it is public land ergo belongs to you and me and everyone and they are acting unlawfully

You have replied to a 5 year old post and what you've said is wrong. Around the market hall is part of the highway so the council can issue tickets and you do have to pay or they can take you to court. Even if the council contract out the issuing of parking fines you still have to pay

Re: parking Ticket issued outside the market hall, with a disabled badge?

Parking with a disabled badge is always an issue.
Firstly in order for the badge to be valid the vehicle has to be parked and being used for the benefit of the disabled badge holder. Them being in the car at the time of parking doesn't qualify if you were popping to the shops for your own benefit. If the goods you bought were for your mum then as the trip and necessary parking were for the benefit of your mum then on the face of it no problem. HOWEVER you have parked in bays which are clearly for permit holders only. This does not include disabled badge holders so I agree with Flashy. You would have been better and legal parking on the yellows.
