The access road to Fishers Green Sailing Club is monitored by ANPR cameras from Parking Eye Ltd to enforce charging at the Lee Valley car-park. Any vehicles passing along the road to our club and not stopping at the car-park, passes through a second set of cameras which should remove the vehicle from the chargeable database. We have seen instances where the second camera fails to register the vehicle passing through, resulting in an erroneous Parking Charge Notice (PCN) from Parking Eye being sent to the registered keeper of the vehicle asking for a £100 payment
DO NOT PAY THIS CHARGE.
If you receive a PCN having visited our club, please contact us using firstname.lastname@example.org for details of how to get it cancelled.
You may also wish to appeal the PCN on the Parking Eye website, explaining that you were visiting Fishers Green Sailing Club.
