Fake Parking Fines - Polegate

A resident contacted WNW recently wanting to share their experience with us and other residents, and to warn us all after they parked for a short while at the train station and shops car park in Polegate.

Several weeks ago the resident parked for around 15 minutes in the area adjacent to the co-op to pick up his wife and then drove out of the car park which is free to shoppers for ninety minutes. Several weeks later he received a letter from the car park management based in Liverpool demanding £100 for over staying also stating that this was not the first time they had contacted him, which was not true, the resident asked for proof and eventually the company backed down.

So be warned, if you park in this car park correctly and should receive a penalty demand don't pay it and suggest they take you to court. This is not the first time this type of action by the car park company has been reported to WNW.
