John H wrote:UKPC have no lawful authority to issue tickets. You should refuse to pay. Cite a decision in the House of Lords in a case against Mitchells and Butlers Brewery. It was ruled that anyone has a right to park on any land they can access. To prevent parking the owner must make it impossible to access the land. The owners of the land are also responsible for any damage to your vehicle.
John H wrote:UKPC do not own the land. The land belongs to the landlord of all those businesses. UKPC effectively operates on their behalf since the car park forms a part of their tenancies.
are you saying, according to the outcome of the case you cited, someone can park on my drive if it is accessible?
you didn't say if you had a disabled badge displayed or not?

Well that's alright then! I'll be sure to mention that to the planet.
