‘RIP-OFF’: Abbots Langley resident’s warning over £100 parking ticket

 Published on: 4th June 2023   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

An Abbots Langley woman has warned other residents after being fined £100 for parking in a local car park.

Hailey Tanner said that she recently parked in the free Manor House car park at around 9.01am.

When she attempted to get a proof of parking ticket, she found that none of the machines were working, so she decided to leave her car without one. When she returned, she found she had been issued with a parking ticket.

Speaking to ABBOTSnews, Hailey said: “I would like to warn everyone in Abbots about what has happened to me as it’s ripping people off.

“I have had to pay the £100 fine as I was being threatened via the post that they were going to send me to court and a county court judgment for debt would be given to me if I didn’t pay.

“I only parked in the car park to take my 18-month-old daughter to the park and to the village.”

A spokesperson for Abbots Langley Parish Council, which operates the car park, said: “Abbots Langley Parish Council takes all complaints seriously and all complaints are investigated. The council cannot comment on individual cases but can confirm an appeal of this case was heard through the Independent Appeals Service (IAS). The IAS provides the ability for people who have received a Parking Charge Notice to appeal against it via an independently appointed adjudicator.

“All visitors to the Manor House car park are asked to carefully read and follow the guidance on the signs displayed at the car park. The signs offer clear and detailed information on the parking restrictions in place at the site. If a ticket machine is not operational during the indicated hours, visitors should ring the number provided on the sign for assistance to avoid unwanted fines.”
