Parking enforcement set to be introduced by Harbour and Dock on land behind Commercial Rd and land near the Moors
A letter has been sent to the Town Council informing of a private enforcement company being employed to enforce certain areas in Porthleven.
The land in question is the area between Costcutters and the Moors; and the land behind Commercial Rd.
A landowner is well with their rights to take action on land they own or is in their control. However, both areas have some interesting points to them.
Firstly, the land behind Commercial Rd is not wholly in the ownership of H&D; as St Austell Brewery own parts (as I have seen these documents) and therefore, enforcing on land not within your control is not possible unless permission has been granted.
The other land in question is owned by H&D, but restricting use brings in the issue of fishermen having rights to use this land ‘for the drying of nets’ etc. and storage which I believe includes boats.
I am sure there will be some interesting dialogue in the next week or so on both practical and legal points of enforcement.
As it say’s in the letter, I am making people aware.
And I am sure it is a typo where it says ‘Penalties for Authorised Parking’. Or I hope it is…
