ParkingEye kicked out of Whitlingham Country Park

According to the Norwich Advertiser, ParkingEye's contract at Whitlingham Country Park has been terminated two years early.

The aggressive ticketing practices drove off many customers of the park, who said they would not return after being hit with £100 parking charges.

John Fuller, council leader, has previously described the park as a great resource, but said Parking Eye’s enforcement had discouraged users.
According to an analysis of the Park's accounts, parking charges were £4,436 before ParkingEye took over management in 2011, and had risen to £118,269 in 2013.

Thus, ParkingEye were raking in huge annual amounts for the outlay of a few cameras. These will all have been from genuine park visitors, many of whom would not return.

The Prankster hopes the park will adopt a new solution which does not rely on the generation of punative charges to fund management.

Happy Parking

  1. It's good to see the land owners waking up to Parking Eye. One can but hope this little trickle gathers momentum
