New car parking arrangements at Ship & Trades
From Wednesday 13th July Shepherd Neame introduced Automatic Number Plate Recognition Cameras in their car parking area with a parking limit of 2 hours.
If you intend to stay for more than 2 hours then you need to register your number plate with a manager or receptionist who will add your car onto the system allowing a longer stay. Hotel guests should register their cars at check-in and are allowed to come and go.
If visitors do not follow this procedure or are not genuine customers of the Ship & Trades then CPM (the car parking enforcement company) will issue a parking charge. This is different from a Penalty Notice and enforceable by law. The charge is £100.
From the point that the ticket is issued the Ship & Trades, Co-Op and Fish Bar have no part in the process. If you are issued a ticket then you need to contact the number indicated on the car parking signage.
I am also aware that this system seems not to be able to validate the exit times of customers from the car park as previous complaints on this matter have already been raised with CPN. I am a resident of St Mary’s Island and rarely have the need to be in the vicinity for even an hour especially when I have 2 parking bays and a double garage at my home.
What is Maritime trust doing about this and what have the ship and trades got to say about this as well.......
I am looking forward to seeing this daft company in the Small Claims Court.
