CAR PARKING (posted Sun 28th Jul 2019)
New parking controls are being implemented in the main shared car park at Pendley Sports Centre with effect from 3rd August 2019.
In order to optimise the use of the car park, and ensure members are not impacted by inappropriate parking, Pendley Sports Centre has decided to implement controls whereby cars must be parked within a marked parking bay.
Failure to park within a marked parking space risks a fine being issued by the parking control partner CPM Ltd. There is now clear signage around the car park that explains requirements and penalties.
Please rest assured that the parking controls and any associated fines will be managed in the first instance by nominated Authorised Club Officials from each of the clubs sharing the car park.
The desire is to avoid issuing fines if at all possible, but ensure proper and responsible parking by all users of the car park - this will be to the benefit of club members.
