Chase Side Parking Issue & Private Controlled Parking- MEQ

Original Email:

Dear Department, 

It seems a new company has been putting up new controlled parking restrictions at the back of the Chase Side parade of shops, specifically at the back of WHSmith, JDWeatherspoons etc. Can you please confirm that the CPZ on a private level here has been authorised by the Council, as resident and businesses had no knowledge of its implementation.

Kind Regards, 
Cllr. Stephanos Ioannou


Dear Cllr Ioannou

Apologies for the slight delay in getting back to you. The extent of Council ownership is illustrated in below, in green:

Having discussed the matter with various colleagues, it appears that the Council has not arranged or authorised the current private enforcement activities. We will therefore contact Close Unit Protection Services Ltd to make them aware of the extent of our ownership so that they are clear that they should not be issuing parking charge notices to vehicles parked on our land.

I hope this clarifies the situation.
