It appears that the new parking restrictions at Portland Road Tesco are now in place.

The restrictions include:

– 45-minute maximum stay

– Any vehicle that is parked causing an obstruction

272051163 110157444896599 224043759694048733 N

– Any car parked outside of a designated bay

– Parking in disabled parking spaces without a Blue badge

Will receive a parking charge notice which comes with an £85 charge.

The parking management company Horizons parking, will request the registered owners details from the DVLA.

It is also important to note that a parking charge notice from a private parking company, legally it is only a speculative invoice and can only be enforced upon proof of claim.

The advice is do not appeal (which puts you into a contract) but rather rebut (dispute) the claim.

This is a different legal process altogether, and the following Facebook group has full instructions and letters on this. https://www.facebook.com/groups/710786995643218

It’s important to note that the parking is managed by Horizon Parking on behalf of the land owner and not Tesco, which means that Horizon Parking would be responsible for enforcing the parking restrictions and issuing any parking charge notices.

If you have any further questions or concerns regarding these parking restrictions or the enforcement process, it may be helpful to contact Horizon Parking on 01245 392 289 or the land owner directly for more information. It’s also a good idea to review any signage or information posted in the parking area to ensure you are aware of any applicable rules and regulations.

  1. Private company has no authority to get your data from dvla. There’s is no authority by a private organisation to charge or fine folk by obtaining your data, your property under DSAR regulations.

    1. You need to check the law.
      Regulation 27 of the Road Vehicles (Registration and Licensing) Regulations 2002 requires the DVLA to release information from its vehicle register to anybody who demonstrates ‘reasonable cause’ to have information made available to them. Unauthorised parking on private land is designated as ‘reasonable cause’. UK GDPR would list this as a legal obligation, not a DSAR.
      The post contains inaccuracies according to Supreme Court private pcn’s are enforceable.
