Government re-iterate commitment to stamp out dodgy parking charges

The DCLG today issued their "Single departmental plan: 2015 to 2020", available at this link.

In it, they re-iterated their commitment to stamp out dodgy parking practices by rogue operators.
We will [...] help tackle aggressive parking enforcement and excessive parking charges, and take steps to tackle rogue and unfair practices by private parking operators
Since the ParkingEye v Beavis case the Prankster's postbag has been overflowing with complaints about parking operators, who seem to feel it is open season on motorists. All kinds of dodgy practices are emerging from the woodwork.

The Prankster therefore welcomes the announcement and looks forward to learning about the details.

Happy Parking

The Parking Prankster


  1. They seem to be all mouth and no trousers. Come on elected representatives get a grip!!

  2. What a pity they didn't listen to respondents (myself included) who wrote to their MPs when the PoFA was being debated.

  3. This is just Government propaganda designed to make you support them. They have no intention of doing anything.
