Thanks very much Simon –

That’s interesting that off street car park signage doesn’t have to conform to TSRGD – are the penalty charge notices that would be issued the same as for on-street bays that do need to comply to TSGRD? Or is there something slightly different about them?

I haven’t been involved with car park signage before so when I started looking into it, I looked at the off street car park order listed on the TPT TRO register, and as they class it as a TRO, I thought that any signage would need to comply with say Ch3 of TSM, but I couldn’t see anything in writing to connect it!

It’s perhaps quite unusual to sign individual bays in a car park anyway.

Regards the “actually charging” problem, in this case electric vehicle drivers will still have to pay per hour for the car park so hopefully the cost of parking will deter drivers from staying there too long, but I can see that there are various potential issues around this!
