This domain is currently not in use.

The Prankster has no idea why John Davies of Gladstones Solicitors would register one domain on behalf of his client, People's Parking, and a very similar domain as a private individual which he has kept for himself.

The IPC are currently advertising on their home page.

John Davies and Will Hurley are also directors of the IPC. According to publicly available documents filed at Companies House, the IPC was incorporated in 2012.

Happy Parking
