Is this the end of private parking “fines”? UPDATE

Three appeal judges unanimously dismissed an earlier appeal by Mr Beavis in April this year, ruling the penalty was “not extravagant or unconscionable”.

​Lawyers for Barry Beavis argued in the Court of Appeal that he should not be bound by an £85 fine for overstaying in a Chelmsford car park in 2013.

Mr Beavis appealed to the Supreme Court and judgment is expected later this year.  If the Supreme Court over-rules the appeal court judgment it will allow motorists to appeal penalty charges imposed on private land.
