New parking signs at Hatfield shopping precinct are ‘spot on’
THERE is now no excuse for getting confused about parking if you pop to the shops in Parkhouse Court, Hatfield.
For new, clearer signs have now been installed by UK Parking Control (UKPC).
The signs warn shoppers they still need a pay-and-display ticket even if only parking for the first hour, which is free.
The new signs have long been campaigned for by Welwyn Hatfield MP Grant Shapps.
He stepped in after many motorists were caught out, saying the old signage was vague and led to them unsuspectingly receiving �90 penalty fines.

Mr Shapps said: “UKPC thought they were doing everything by the book, but local people found the system caught them out because in other locations, no ticket is required to be displayed for the first free hour.
“I want to congratulate UKPC for listening to the concerns of residents and responding so positively.
