Are the Parking Ticket (charge) that are issued by a private parking company enforceable?
Just recently the UK Supreme Court (England) ruled that private parking companies can issue parking charges and those charges can be legally enforced.

- BBC – Barry Beavis loses Supreme Court parking battle
History of the Case
On 23rd April 2015 the Court of Appeal handed down Judgment. In the Judgment the three Judges (Lord Justice Moore-Bick, Lord Justice Patten and Sir Timothy Lloyd) unanimously dismissed Mr Beavis’s challenge, making it clear that Parking Charge was “not extravagant or unconscionable” and that the charge “was neither improper in its purpose nor manifestly excessive in amount”.
On the 4th November 2015 the Supreme Court handed down Judgment. This further appeal lodged by the Defendant was heard over the course of three days during July 2015 and the majority decision reached by the Supreme Court, dismisses Mr Beavis’ appeal on both grounds.
In reaching this decision, Lord Neuberger, Lord Sumption, Lord Mance, Lord Clarke, Lord Carnwath and Lord Hodge (Lord Toulson dissenting) found that the Parking Charge levied was neither ‘unfair’, nor ‘penal’, and concluded that the parking management company thad a legitimate interest in charging overstaying motorists.
The Supreme Court also agreed with the analysis of the amount of the Charge previously proffered by both HHJ Moloney and the Court of Appeal, finding that the sum of £85 was neither ‘extravagant, nor unconscionable’, as well determining that the amount of the Parking Charge was reasonable.
