Residents in fear of clamping in their own estates

October 8, 2018 0

With the re-installment of parking and clamping signs in Bremore Pastures/Hampton Lawn it is important that residents are aware that these signs are illegal as Fingal County Council have taken charge of these estates therefore no private management company has the right to enforce the use of parking permits or clamp cars that do not have permits shown or who have not called the number on the signs.

Below is the official response from Fingal County Council in relation to clamping signs erected requesting parking permits.

NO PERMITS ARE NECESSARY

Dear Councillor,

For your information, it has been brought to our attention that the management company (Bremore Pastures Management Company Ltd) for Bremore Pastures estate in Balbriggan has notified residents of their intention to introduce parking management in Bremore Pastures estate with effect from this Friday 1st June.

Fingal County Council in accordance with Section 11 of the Roads Act 1993 declared the roads within the development, including the car parking spaces, to be public roads at its meeting held on 12th February 2018.

The maintenance and management of the public road is the responsibility of Fingal County Council and policing/enforcement of the Roads and Traffic legislation in relation to parking violations is a matter for An Garda Siochana.

The Operations Department has received a number of calls from residents of Bremore Pastures estate in relation to the proposed parking management , and we have advised and will continue to advise that no private company has the authority to regulate parking on a public road unless contracted to do so by the Council
