Is it possible, with it being the evening, that the idiots have a no-parking period after a certain time of day?

Mind you, presumably the fast-food outlets were still open.

Which shops or restaurants did you visit?

We could do with some help from you.

Excellent.  So that's proof that outlets were open.  No way is 45 minutes or whatever limit they've made up a reasonable time to have a meal in a restaurant.

The very best thing you can do, if possible, is to go back and take photos of the signs.  Good idea.

Please fill in the sticky.  It's perfectly possible the fleecers haven't respected the timescales for keeper liability.

Having a quick look on street view it seems like Max stay is 3 hours between 06:00-00:00 and 00:00-06:00 is 1 hour. This was as of August 2018 but I can't imagine them clamping it down that much considering there's 2 supermarkets in the area as well as the restaurants.

Who can do their shopping in 45 minutes?

Thank you for posting the PCN you received. However there was a fair amount missing-probably on the back of the PCN. It is information telling you that if payment is not made within 28 days they will have the right to transfer the charge from the driver to the keeper. It may also quote from the Protection of Freedoms Act. 

They often get the wording wrong so that the keeper does not become liable for the charge. That is dependent on them not being told who was driving hence the reason we are asking to see your appeal in.case you admitted being the driver.

So could you please post up the whole PCN minus your details and the car reg.

There is a 5-minute consideration period to read the signs and a 10-minute grace period to leave the car park, and you were within these times.

That's not to mention that a 45-minute limit is an unreasonable term when there are food outlets.

This attempt at fleecing is going nowhere.

That said, if you can, get the retail park to intervene and call off their dogs.  I've Googled and can't find a damn webpage or e-mail address for them.

they have a time limit of 45 minutes outside the regular hours.

Highly dubious...

You've had to guess/interpret what the (deficient) sign means.

What the signage LITERALLY says is...

"MAXIMUM STAY 45 MINUTES (OUTSIDE OF THESE HOURS)"

Outside of what hours?

Why should the reader have to guess/interpret what they mean?

It looks as if the notice is at the entrance to the car park. There is an awful lot of information to observe in the short time that  a motorist drives through. So seeing there is a three hour stay is probably all that most motorists need and don't even pick up on the other part of the sign that limits the time to 45 minutes. 

The PCN is not compliant as it misses out a key piece of information . Schedule 4 Section 9 [2][e] "(i)to pay the unpaid parking charges; 

As they haven't invited the keeper to pay the charges on behalf of the driver  ECP  cannot  transfer the charge for the driver to the keeper. Only the driver is now liable for the charge. Good luck to finding the driver when so many people are allowed to drive your car. All you have to do is not to give away ho was driving.  Always describe yourself as the keeper, never "I" and never admit you were driving if you were the driver.

This is the response from the management of the retail park “

Apologies for the delay in coming back to you. I needed to check with our Facilities Manager, what the exact parking restrictions are.

 

You will see below a photo of the signage, where it clearly shows that at 17:00 on Sunday the maximum stay is 45 minutes. This is to prevent anti-social behaviour and at that time only KFC and McDonalds are open. When the other tenants are open there is a maximum of 3 hours. “.

So a complete shirking of their responsibilities.

Anyway, 45 minutes isn't enough time to park, queue, order and eat a meal so this is going nowhere - it's an unfair term.

Get onto the local council and see how long for parking is stated in the planning permission for the site - as Homer says. I bet it isn't 45 minutes.
