Car park management

Booths to remove paid parking and display and introduce the ANPR system

BOOTHS plans to replace a paid public car park with a system that registers registration numbers.

The supermarket in Knutsford has notified the Cheshire East Council (CEC) that it wishes to terminate a management agreement for the operation of a public car park.

Starting April 22, the store will offer two hours of free parking to everyone, without the need for tickets.

An Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system is being installed.

This means CEC will no longer be able to operate public parking at the supermarket and control of the land will revert to Booths.

Adam Keppel-Green, Clerk of Knutsford Town Council, said: “I have spoken with the Booths property manager who has advised that from April 22 they will be implementing a free two-hour ANPR system to allow to any vehicle, visiting for any reason, be able to park for free for a maximum of two hours per visit.”

The cabin parking lot will be removed from the municipal list of off-street parking spaces.

As part of the ANPR system, drivers who violate any of the terms and conditions posted on parking signs will not receive a ticket on their vehicle.

Instead, using the vehicle registration number, the operator will access the DVLA’s vehicle holder details database and send a charge certificate to the vehicle holder.
