    It's hardly a scam.

    This is a pub with 27 spaces in the car park, and close to Notts Forest FC and Trent Bridge Cricket ground.

    There are signs outside and inside telling patrons to input their reg. no. into a terminal so they don't get a ticket, and even if they forget to do so, they can get the charge cancelled upon proof that they were a customer.

    If they didn't have a scheme like this, genuine pub users would have trouble finding a space. Seems fair enough to me.
    Speeding cases fought: 24 (3 of mine, 21 for others). Cases won: 20. Points on licence: 0. Private Parking Court Cases: Won 30. Lost 9.

    If they really want to stop the unwanted, a simple barrier
    with a ticket and upon paying the bill, they get a token
    to exit

    Why on earth would anyone who misread, were not told
    by staff then have to go to the effort of proving themselves.
    And .. we all know about the problems about entering
    a reg number ?

    Amazed though that PE are doing mini car parks now

    Get all that sorted and it might not be a scam

    plenty of pubs near major attractions or beauty spots have similar issues and machines with redemption inside

    there is a place called Hollingworth Lake near Saddleworth with a pub called THE BEACH that has a similar system of payment and refund at the bar and its been that way for a few years now

    I cannot remember which PPC it is but its not PE or EXCEL etc

    if they did not have a system like this it would be rammed 24/7 with people going sailing or just taking country walks around the man made lake

    so I can sympathise with some landowners trying to run a business who have an attractively located car park
    Newbies !!
    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se

    in mind that a PPC is only operating to make money which
    will in turn mean losing money when customers get burned.
    The great British public are not known for complaining, it
    just means they never return

    As said many times on here ... "google is your / their best friend"

    Dan Kelly, operations manager for the North at Brewhouse, said the scheme is to ensure 'genuine customers' always have a space to park.

    Good old DM, but this article alone will probably cost the pub £££s in lost custom. Is that what they want, what they really really want?
