Post Lockdown Christmas Shopping; Don’t Get Caught Out with a PCN

Tue Dec 2020

As we approach the end of another national lockdown we expect to see a huge increase in the number of shoppers, customers and patrons returning to our car parks. With this in mind we feel a strong responsibility to remind drivers about the importance of reading any signs before entering private land.

The new 3 tiered restrictions announced today mean that we are set to see all non-essential shops open their doors on Thursday 3rd December. The festive season is fast approaching and despite the virus still circulating, shops and retail parks are predicted to be busier than ever in the run up to Christmas.

 Parking restrictions can often be hard to gauge, especially if you're in a rush or you're in an unfamiliar area – in a survey conducted by The AA, more than 1 in 5 members given parking tickets didn't know they'd done anything wrong at the time. Here at HX we aim to help create an enjoyable shopping experience for customers, and work with landowners to prevent parking tickets being issued through neglect of their land.

In order to get the most out of your shopping experience, please remember these simple terms and conditions which cover most privately managed car park;

  • Read the terms and conditions signage carefully before committing to park your vehicle
  • Ensure all 4 tyres are wholly within the bay markings
  • If parking on a pay and display site, ensure your full and correct vehicle registration is entered when purchasing your ticket
  • Do not stop or park on yellow or hatched lines
  • Take note of the time you entered the car park - ensure you do not overstay

The Christmas rush for gifts and decorations alone can be stressful without the worry of receiving a parking ticket, so please don’t get caught out! Remember take a minute to check for any signage in and around the car park whilst out doing your Christmas shopping.
