B&E Hamblion labels legal action over parking fines as unfair

  • 25 June 2013
  • By Chris Tindall

Colchester haulier BE Hamblion is being sued by the owners of an industrial estate in Ipswich for refusing to pay £900 in parking fines.

Director Kevin Reid said the fines being dished out by Proserve, which is employed by Ransomes Park to enforce parking restrictions, were unfair and too high.

The Road Haulage Association (RHA) said it would help the haulier with costs, as it could prove to be a test case for other firms to demand refunds.

RHA infrastructure manager Chrys Rampley said: “They aren’t parking; they are stopping for a few minutes. It’s not proportionate.”

Nigel Robson, a director at Ransomes Park’s parent company The Land Group, declined to comment.

In Febraury FTS Hatswell offered to set up a fighting fund to contest unreasonable parking fines on the Ransomes Park. RG Basset Sons has also fallen foul of parking fines on the estate.
