CAR PARKING (posted Mon 20th Nov 2017)
Pendley Sports Centre Limited
        
Date: 20th November 2017
  
An open letter to all Sports Clubs on the Pendley Site.
 
Dear Members,
 
As you will be aware all car parks on our site are jointly shared by all clubs and maintained by Pendley Sports Centre Ltd. Last season we received feedback that the main car park was in disrepair and the bay marking were poor. This resulted in poor parking and members being blocked in. Acting on your feedback, repairs were done to the main car park and new white lines were painted. This season however, the poor parking has increased and we are getting reports that cars are being blocked in on a more regular basis. This is not only on match days/evenings, but on training days as well. This is selfish parking. 
 
Blocking cars in on the assumption that everyone is attending the same event is wrong. 
 
When using the car park please ensure you only park in a marked parking bay. 
 
We know parking is limited and we continue to discuss ways to address the problem, but the options available to us are limited. Club committees are asked to bring this to the attention of visiting clubs. 
  
Yours faithfully
  
Mark Bullard
Secretary, Pendley Sports Centre Ltd 
 
On Behalf of PSC Ltd.
