Motorists fume over parking penalties despite faulty Trowbridge machines

This Is Wiltshire: Susan Jeddi Susan Jeddi

Parking control at St Stephen’s Place Leisure Park in Trowbridge has come under fire again from angry motorists, after several visitors received tickets despite both of the machines being out of order.

Susan Jeddi parked in the car park at the £17million complex at 10.23am on Monday last week, but when she went to get a ticket for three hours of free parking she noticed that both machines were out of order.

Mrs Jeddi, of Dursley Road, Trowbridge, said she was joined by several other motorists who were trying to get a ticket, but after 10 minutes they decided there was nothing they could do other than take photographs of the machines.

However, when Mrs Jeddi returned to her car at 1.10pm she was shocked to find she had been given a ticket by UK Parking Control.

Mrs Jeddi said: “I don’t know how many tickets were given out, but there were certainly others as well as me. I went to one machine and it had a notice on it saying out of order, so they knew that one wasn’t working.

“I then went to the other one and when I pressed the button the display also said it was out of order. By this time, there were a few other people also trying to get tickets.

“We decided that as both the machines were broken there was no way they could give us a ticket, but I took a couple of photographs with my phone just in case.”

The ticket from UKPC said Mrs Jeddi had to pay the parking fine of £60 within 14 days or it would increase to £100, although she has decided to appeal through the company’s website, a process than can take up to 28 days..

Mrs Jeddi added: “I saw several other cars with tickets on them and I expect many people probably just pay up so the fine doesn’t go up as it is quite stressful, but I haven’t done anything wrong, so I don’t see why I shouldn’t appeal.

“They are very quick to pounce and it seems particularly nasty the way UKPC try and get you. I called Wiltshire Council and they just said it wasn’t their problem, but something needs to change.”

Only last month, Trow-bridge Town Council resolved to write to Legal and General, developer of the leisure park, about the concerns raised by a number of residents about UKPC’s parking enforcement.

A spokesman for UKPC said: "Having looked at this site, yes I can confirm that the P&D machines were out of order on August 18.

"We were first notified of this at 10.15am and these were fixed at 10.35am and the wardens were advised not to issue any charges until 12.30pm so that we didn’t issue charges to anyone who would have been affected by this.

Unfortunately one charge was issued to one of these drivers (Susan Jeddi), however I can confirm that this has since been cancelled."

Ignore UKPC all together , They are legalised thieves , They have no powers whatsoever. The dispute is between you and them . They will have to apply to DVLA to obtain your details and they can only get information from them if they are approved by DVLA to give your details which I doubt they are . A good criminal solicitor will give you the same advice . The dispute is not a criminal but a civil matter unlike a council car park. I suggest the owners of this car park do something to rid these parasites altogether and police it properly. With another cinema threatened to come to town soon, you will sink deeper than you will already . These private parking companies need to be regulated or extinguished from society altogether

Anyone else getting fed up listening to this parking rubbish?

The signs clearly state how long you can park, and a ticket must be displayed. Would you get on a train without a ticket? Nope, because it's classed as a crime. You ran the risk of parking without a ticket, and got caught out.

Count ourselves lucky we have some free, and also cheap car parks, have you seen the price of parking in Bath, or Swindon, or Bristol?

Considering the lady in question lives on Dursley road, you could have walked there in ten minutes and saved all this hassle.

So, trowbridge1960, if, as you say we rid ourselves of these parasites, what then, employ another company to police it..... Who will then do the same?

The fact is that the parking policy for this car park with a multiplex cinema on it -is simply not fit for purpose. If i remember rightly when the developer presented the parking policy at the council board meetings it was to work in conjunction with the multi storey car park-well quite simply it doesnt.
It should never have been put into the hands of an operator like this. I did warn of the fact that the council and developer would wash their hands of the responsibilities of this car park and now its come home to roost. After 6pm its not a problem in the area but before it ,its an absolute disaster.
There are not enough car parking spaces for this development-the multi storey is rammed on the 23hr levels 8am-6pm--you cannot use the 2 hr levels if youre a cinema patron because to park and see a film, let alone eat is more than a 2 hour experience. By 12midday ,111 spaces are taken up with a mixture of cinema , hotel ,shoppers and restaurant users.
Since the first report in the Wiltshire Times in early July when a woman complained and said 'we arent coming back' after the problems she faced -i can certainly confirm that this has impacted on the attendance in the afternoons at the cinema and in so doing has impacted on the restaurants too. I have gone in to the cinemas website and have noticed that the seating capacities have not been selling out on kids films when they should have done so-a simple check of other Odeons and their afternoon attendances bears this out.
And i have stood in the foyer and listened to several people who have driven a distance , almost did not make their performance-the adverts had started, complained that it should be free for 4 not 3 hours as they wanted to eat, and have also said-they are not coming back to this cinema.
A multiplex cinema like this needs to operate profitably like others and max out its afternoons with people coming from a distance and if it doesnt it will become a town cinema-and thats not good.
I am sure that behind closed doors, Odeon and the restaurant operators are concerned about these negative newspaper articles-
So PCS and Cmness -you cant just dismiss it either as these complaints are justified. You might have have got your ticket PCS at 9am and 12.33 but were you there at 10.23am like she and others were--i doubt it. There might have been a powercut with 2 machines out-or people working on the Chiquitos unit needed to sever the line--we just dont know.
What i do know is that in other car parks operated around the country by this operator is that if you go back to top up or extend your ticket -their hand held machines will recognise this and will slap on a fine.
I hate to think what would happen with cinemagoers who will come in the afternoon to see a 3hr plus film like Titanic or Avatar befor 2.01pm and get stung. Then again after reading the Wiltshire Times and experiencing this car park it will be quite simple--THEY JUST WONT COME AGAIN--BAD NEWS!!!!!!!!!
Told you this but you wouldnt listen to experience.
As for Innox Riverside i will certainly be making representations to make sure they get it right on the first day -not the complete debacle the parking at St Stephens Place appears to be.

AM Vanquish - the parking policy is simple and it seems there is only a small minority that either don't seem to be able to read and understand it, think that because they work in a council building adjacent that the policy should not apply to them or are just plain happy to try and blame anyone else for their own mistakes.

Answer me this - If the car parking system isn't working how come it's so full so often?

It would be interesting to find out how many tickets a day are dispensed in that car park and how many complaints people have made. I'm sure we'll find the complaints are far less than 1% of tickets issued.

PCS- the car park is not working to the benefit of the cinema which is the anchor of the development and what it was primarily built for. Of course its full (talk about stating the bl**ding obvious). There just are not enough spaces on holiday dates in either this car park or the multistorey--and with 4 restaurant units left the problem will get worse. I keep on explaining but you dont understand that the lack of spaces and its policy has impacted on its afternoon attendances.
Furthermore there are at least 15 films coming up in the next 12 months of 2hrs 45 mins duration and over, several scheduled for holiday dates. It needs a 4hr policy in place for these films not only in the 111 space car park but in the 2 hrs section of the multistorey which can easily be changed and both car parks administered by the local traffic warden not a private operator. Not many spaces tend to come up on the 23hr levels as workers use them
Ultimately the policy should be this in the 2hr section of the multi storey-the 111 car park and the court street car park opposite
2hrs free only 8am-1030am-to deter workers
4hrs free-10.30am -5pm (and pay £1 if you want to stay extra or be fined)
Free 5pm-8am
In fact it should be 1hr free car parking in every other car park in Trowbridge. The above policy is entirely reasonable
You seem to forget from my previous letters and posts that motorists learnt from the bitter experience of the 2 x180 seater Europa cinemas that were on top of the multi storey between 1974-1980. When 2 popular films came in, there was traffic chaos in the multistorey.
You may not have been in Trowbridge over those years-but i was.
Common sense should be telling you-only 111 extra spaces for a new 1200 seat cinema-6/7 restaurants capable of accomodating 650 people and an 80 bedroomed hotel - has not catered for the afternoon holiday business .
Im not against car park charging but it has to be reasonable, not act as a deterrent to shoppers coming or traders and be altered to serve exactly what has been constructed in the area.

I did say if you read it---'behind closed doors' they would be concerned. Most cinema companies dont tend to hang the dirty washing out in public i most certainly would be concerned as an operator of this multiplex and talking behind the scenes to get a resolution before a 3rd newspaper article rears its head. I wouldnt be surprised if changes come as a result of these 2 newspaper articles but if it doesnt then more questions will be asked at the Trowbridge area board meetings as it will ultimately impact on the civic centre and the park.
And those people in the foyer cinema i was listening to did complain there were not enough spaces too. These are people who vote with their feet and go elsewhere. They are not necessarily going to send letters to the WT when there is an alternative -the cinema they went to before.
I raised these concerns prior to its construction and not only that to reiterate yet again there are 4 units yet to be occupied and the car park is full before you even start. For gods sakes work out the maths and reality of this inevitable scenario. If not then you are truly blind and blinkered.

It is to be hoped that the "behind closed door" discussions do produce some postive results.

"And those people in the foyer cinema i was listening to did complain there were not enough spaces too. These are people who vote with their feet and go elsewhere. They are not necessarily going to send letters to the WT when there is an alternative -the cinema they went to before."

...so if these people are miffed at having to walk from the multi-storey car park to the Odeon cinema because the St Stephens car park is full - the obvious answer is to drive to Bristol or Bath to avoid such annoying inconveniences. Makes total sense.

Now to put this parking issue to bed, please compare that number with how many complaints have been made. Bearing in mind this does not account for tickets dispensed between 5pm and 9am as there are no officers to enforce the parking policy.
