It has been a long understood policy of Welcome Break to facilitate extended free parking over the standard 2 hours to Abload Hauliers in possession of an endorsed movement order due to the additional burdens experienced by the industry.
The HTA has recently received several reports of members receiving parking tickets from Parking Eye whilst staying beyond 2hrs free parking. It was decided by the committee to approach the CEO of Welcome Break for comment. A letter was sent to Robbie Bell the CEO Designate and in response the HTA received an eMail from Nick Jackson the Head of Business development. Although he was unable to suggest a procedure for registering the extension of free parking on arrival at one of their service stations, he gave an eMail address to notify in advance to register the extension.
Members are advised to contact Welcome Break directly at the following address prior to using the services to enable the extension of free parking: firstname.lastname@example.org
