Waterfront Parking Issues
We have received reports from residents regarding parking tickets issued in the various privately-owned car parks in the Waterfront area. The most commonly mentioned is the Tye Road/Modus development area.
This car park is owned and operated by Secure A Space, and recently they seem to be issuing tickets to car owners who are waiting in the area; not just parking! This is particularly relevant to anybody using Tesco Express on Duke Street. One local resident waited in Tye Road whilst her husband popped into Tesco, was there for less than five minutes, and had a parking ticket landing on her doormat shortly afterwards, citing the reason as ‘parking outside a marked bay’. It appears that CCTV is being used as a surveillance tool, not just enforcement officers.
Please be vigilant when parking or waiting in or around Waterfront housing developments and let us know if you have experienced any issues with parking in the area by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
