Parking Regulations - Vehicles and Pedal Cycles
Students who wish to park a motor vehicle at Queen's Campus Stockton must apply for and be issued with a parking permit. Vehicles must only be parked within the areas designated for parking and no vehicles may be left overnight.
- Parking is strictly prohibited in the following areas:
- In any location, including the access roads, grass verges and pavements, between the Queen's Campus Stockton car park and the main roundabout where Harvard Avenue intersects University Boulevard and between the main roundabout and the north end of Harvard Avenue near the river. This also includes Princeton Drive.
- At all locations, including roads, grass verges and pavements, within 15 metres of the main roundabout where Harvard Avenue intersects University Boulevard.
- The service yard at Holliday Building and the goods delivery area at Ebsworth Building
- Residents with permits to park at the College Residences are not permitted to park in the main Campus car park.
- Motor vehicles and cycles brought onto University grounds must not be left in a position where they are likely to create a hazard, obstruct other vehicles or pedestrians, or access to buildings; nor must cycles be taken inside any University building. Residents with permits to park at the College Residences are not permitted to park in the main Campus car park.
- If a vehicle is parked contravening the terms and conditions of the University Car Parking Regulations, University Security staff or an authorised person acting on behalf of the University may either: a) Issue a Civil Notice to the owner of the offending vehicle. This is a sticker that attaches to the windscreen and outlines in a polite manner that the vehicle has been parked unlawfully and requests that the action is not repeated. When removed, the sticker will not leave a residue on the windscreen. b) Issue a Parking Charge Notice which requires the owner of the vehicle to pay a £60 parking fee. Vehicles parked on University premises, with a University parking permit that contravene the University Car Parking Regulations i.e. out of date permit, parked in manner which causes an obstruction will be issued a civil notice, after the issue of three civil notices to the same vehicle, it will be liable for a Parking Charge Notice and the owner will be required to pay the £60 charge. Following the issue of a Parking Charge Notice, the details will be forwarded to the Park-Force Solution's central processing unit by the Head of Security or the Queens Campus Site Manager. Should there be requirement to cancel any issued charge notice for whatever reason the notice can be cancelled within 14 days by the Head of Security or Queens Campus Site Manager. This will ensure that only genuine offenders are penalised should a Parking Charge Notice be issued in error. Vehicles not displaying a valid University permit will be liable for a Parking Charge Notice immediately the vehicle is found on a University Car Park. If after 14 days the charge is outstanding Park-Force Solutions will obtain details of the vehicle and its owner from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) and their legal department will pursue the offender for the charge. Throughout this process, Park-Force Solutions are bound at all times by the DVLA's code of conduct for the release and processing of data and the Administration of Justice Act 1978. These regulations are made, and the staff enforcing them will act, by order of the Council of the University.
