PAY AND DISPLAY: Charges on the Chorleywood Common re-instated

 Published on: 8th October 2020   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Chorleywood Parish Council announced parking control measures at the common have been re-instated.

In a statement published on social media, the parish council said people not displaying a ticket on their car, will be fined.

Speaking to ChorleywoodNews, cllr Tony Edwards, chair of Open Spaces said: “The parish council introduced a ticketed parking scheme in some of its permissive car parks several years ago.

“The aim of this operation was to deter commuters from using the car parks which would then, possibly, prevent those wishing to utilise the common from doing so that it would be unreasonable. 

“With the advent of lockdown commuting stopped and with it the need for the ticketing scheme. We were also conscious of the fact that we would be seeing an increase in the use of the common, possibly by people who had not previously visited it. 

“We considered that it would be unreasonable and unfortunate if anyone were to receive a penalty fine, if they failed to obtain a ticket, when using the car park for the purpose intended, that is to say enjoying the common.

“With lockdown constrictions easing it was decided to reintroduce the ticketing scheme in September after publicising the fact on social media and by way of signage around the car parks.”

The enforcement restarted on September 10, but for the period going from the 10th to the 27th only warning tickets were issued.

Fines for failing to leave a ticket on windscreens started on September 28.

The charges apply between 1pm and 3pm Monday to Friday.
