Parking Charge Notices
It is a condition of parking at Union Square that vehicles are parked in a marked bay in a manner that is considerate to other car park users. Vehicles which are found to be parked in an inconsiderate manner (this being at our sole discretion) may result in vehicle keepers receiving a Penalty Charge Notice. Examples of inconsiderate parking include:
(a) parking in any area that is not a designated, marked parking bay
(b) parking across the marked white line thus taking up two parking spaces
(c) parking in a reserved space
(d) parking in a space allocated for Blue Badge Holders (when not parking in accordance with the Blue Badge Scheme)
(e) parking in a space allocated for parent and child parking (without requiring to be able to demonstrate the need for use of such)
(f) parking in designated walkways
The Penalty Charge Notice cost is £70.  If the Penalty Charge Notice is paid within 14 days this will be reduced to £40.

If the Parking Charge Notice is not paid within 14 days of issue of the notice, Smart Parking Ltd will request the registered keeper’s details from the DVLA for the purposes of recovery of the notice. If the Parking Charge Notice is not paid within 28 days an additional £10 administrative charge will be levied.
