Meadowhall Retail Park car parking megathread

Recommended Posts

How about a strategically placed piece of cardboard/tin foil over your regplates, put on prior to entrance and temporarily removal your tax disc.

Slightly risky and a minor hassle but nevertheless worth it.

 

I really would not bother for an unenforceable fine!

Be careful - those who ignored it have never been heard from again! "manaman" is in Guantanamo Bay!

 

Not quite!

Have been away from the forum for a while but not as far as Guantanamo Bay. But I'm back now for my fix.:D

Has manaman heard anything else from these people since his last post?

 

Not heard a thing since my last post.

 

In February, I had spent a large amount of money between a number of the stores on the Park, hence my "overstay". To say I was surprised at then being bombarded by threatening letters demanding extortionate amounts of money for this "overstay", would be an understatement. All my previous visits were to a free car parking Retail Park. On this visit I did not see any large notice at the entrance, and indeed in the car park itself, indicating a change in the parking conditions.

 

I will never visit this site again. I prefer to deal with retail companies who appreciate my custom and treat me with respect.

Went to cinema at Centertainment in Sheffield and as usual could not get parked due to the pathetic amount of spaces available. I always check the overflow car park behind the cinema then as usual end up parking next door on the retail car park. I've never been aware of these parking restrictions (don't go the cinema that often) so was surprised to receive the letter with photographic evidence.

Done a bit of Googling and the advice is to 'ignore any letters and they will go away' because it is not a legal notice and all they are sending you is in effect an invoice.

Just been chatting at work and colleagues have said ' for £25 I'd just pay' and must admit I'm inclined to do so.

Anyone had any recent experience of G24 Ltd?

I have posted on a site that deals with stuff like this and will update for other peoples info.

Don't listen to your work colleagues.

 

Ignore any correspondence and they will go away. They have no legal right to fine you, as has been proven in court.

 

There is a big thread somewhere about Meadowhall Retail Park which may be of interest to you.

I had one last year but was under a very stressful time in my life that I didnt need any hassle and any more worry, so I paid it, if I'd have got it now I wouldn't be doing so.
