About Me


  1. Hi there! I'm looking for the Guru's on parking issues! The foreshore parking had been closed in the Port Isaac harbor last year unless you own a permit - bought for a ridiculous £120. Nevertheless I've got fined by the AS Parking Company employed to enforce the permit-only parking rule. After examining their PCN I found that this in itself contravened law passed in 2007 by the House of Lords. I actually wrote to them and made them aware of the fact that their PCN format is illegal, but only got a very unprofessional and childish reply. They stated that I trespassed on private property and I wrote back asking who they then work for, hoping to get a cheaper permit and I wanted to complain about the condition of the parking lot for which I will have to pay! They refused to give any info and told me to go and park somewhere else if I do not like the condition of the parking lot. I kept on parking on the beach as a form of 'protest' and because their are no loading area in Port Isaac for business owners, never mind disabled people! I've collected a couple of these PCN's now and finally got a letter shining some light on my problem - ownership. I got a letter without any reference number and no name to the signature, using what I assume is the letter head of the Port Isaac Harbor Commission. The address is 8 Fore Street Camelford and when I called the number I found it to be the Sproull solicitor’s office. It is not friendly letter and I accused of being 'above the law' and I've now been warned that the AS Parking Cowboy-squad had been given orders to clamp my wheels and that they'll apply for a court injunction if I do not stop my behavior. They did their homework putting up signs concerning the permits and the fees related to clamping, which is required when clamping is done on private land. I just can't understand how the Foreshore could be private land? I also do not want to back off now! A solicitor's office who is acting on behalf of the Harbor Commission and who also happens to sell the permits and who uses a cowboy-company to enforce the 'law' using an illegal PCN format..., something stinks and it's not the dead fish and seaweed in their parking lot! What I would like to know is; How can permits be sold for parking below the high-water mark when clearly there is no parking at high tide, no demarcated parking bays and the lot itself not being cleaned up? Why is there no access control and why can the public be allowed to play, walk, and sunbathe in a parking lot? Should there not be some sort of access control and warning signs in place warning the public that this is a privately owned parking lot? Oh yes, the un-named spokes person of the harbor Commission suggested that my behavior is 'ant-social', which makes me think that one can only be social if you own a permit
  2. Last year my friend and I parked in a what we thought was a parking bay only to find the car had been clamped and towed away because it was private land. The only problem is it happended last year and I did send an appeal letter but it was obviously a waste of time. After reading some of the posts about the same firm I find myself becoming increasingly annoyed at being charged so much. Does anyone know if there is a time limit on taking action? It happened last november but back then wasn't sure if we had any grounds to take it any further.
