Parking penalty charge appeal

Barry Beavis (Appellant) v ParkingEye Ltd (Respondent)

9 June 2015

The Supreme Court will now hear Mr Beavis' appeal alongside that of Cavendish Square Holding BV v Talal El Makdessi, which also involves the enforceability of penalty clauses in contracts. You can find more details about this case here:

The hearing of the two appeals will begin on Tuesday 21 July 2015.
