I read with interest your article in this weeks journal, dated 4th August, regarding anger at parking tickets at the Five Valley Centre Car Park.
People have been given a parking fine to the value of £100, reduced to £60 if paid within 14 days.
Over the last week I have been sent two of these. The incidents happened in June, so as I have thrown away the ticket I no longer have proof of purchase.
They are accusing me of using the car park without paying.
However I know I have paid for both tickets, as I am an honest citizen, as are many other people in Stroud.
I have written a letter of appeal and waiting to hear back from Civil Enforcement.
I would urge other people to do the same thing.
I have spoken to Stroudnewsandjournal who informed me that many other people have contacted them re this same complaint.
I will consider contacting Siobhan Baillie, our Stroud MP, if this issue is not resolved and the £100 fine withdrawn.
In the meantime, I will not be using this Car Park and in future will keep all tickets.
