Maidenhead Retail Park

Posted by davidburbage on November 14, 2007

I am getting complaints about clamping in Maidenhead Retail Park. This is the (almost) out-of-town shopping centre on Stafferton Way that has Halfords, Homebase, Pets At Home, Maplin etc. Apparently the parking company are clamping cars if their owners leave the site, and if they do leave the site then they clamp the car. What I can’t work out is how they monitor who is where, especially if, as appears to be the case, people go to the shops in the Retail Park first and then proceed into Maidenhead to do further shopping without polluting the environment by moving their car.

The Council does not run the car park or appoint the clampers. We are taking steps to see what can be done (if anything) to stop this incredibly unpopular activity which is detrimental to the town (and the interests of the shops on the site).

The cost of clamp removal is, I am informed, a not modest £120 .
