What is the Parking Code of Practice?

At Britannia Parking, we are hugely experienced in the management of both public and private car parks, helping our clients to optimise their assets effectively while improving the car parking experience for everyone.

We have over 25 years in the industry, meaning we have seen all there is to see regarding car parks and their varying details.

It can be difficult for owners of private car parking facilities to effectively optimise their facilities, as this takes the investment of time, money and patience that they don’t necessarily have.

Read on to find out more about the Parking Code of Practice, as well as how our services can help you take control of your car park’s income.

Parking Code of Practice Details

Enacted in 2019, the Parking Code of Practice sets out the standards for how a privately owned car park should be managed by its owner, whether that be a business, a person or other organisation that has dedicated this space for use by a specific group of vehicles.

It also details the responsibilities of drivers, and their code of conduct should they decide to use the private car parking facilities.

As found on the government website, here are the responsibilities of drivers:

  • Respecting such terms and conditions as may be applied by the landowner or those acting on their behalf;
  • Complying with the terms and conditions governing permitted parking;
  • Paying the parking tariff (where applicable), and
  • Paying any parking charge legitimately issued, subject to the resolution of any relevant dispute/appeal.
