This is a common practice used on retail parks with several different outlets sharing a communal customer parking area. These car parks are designed to allow visitors to park with or without a charge for a specified period of time. This regime can often be accompanied by a no-return policy within a specified time period, and is designed to deter those drivers from using the car park area for other reasons. Many retail outlet car parks are used as an unauthorised 'park & ride' area for commuters wishing to car share.
The National Parking Management Limited Waiting Service utilises our Parking Charge Notice capture and management software, and we are able to enforce both overstays and drivers who misuse disabled spaces, parent and toddler spaces, restricted areas and loading bays.
National Parking Management can provide parking equipment, signage and Parking Attendants to manage car parks and ensure the parking regulations for the area are adhered to at all times. Our Passive ANPR system has also proven to be a great deterrent in this scenario.
