Are 'Parking Charges' legal?

Yes. Once our contractual warning signs are erected and an authority agreement signed with the landowner or their agent we can legally issue invoices (parking charge notices). It is legal to levy a parking charge which has been notified (by our signs) to motorists. By parking on land, we patrol, drivers enter into a contract as indicated on our signs. We will pursue the driver and in certain circumstances ( under the new Protection of Freedoms Act, the Registered Keeper) Motorists do have a legal right of appeal and the parking charge notice gives full details of this.
