Do you mean the small bit out the back of Boots or the big car park? The car park I thought was NCP, I think whoever rents the shop to Laura Ashley owns the couple of parking spaces at the side of the building and whoever owns the big block with Boots etc in owns the carpark out the back.

The bit of parking behind The Volly, by the closed down motoring shop and in front of Laura Ashley.
Laura Ashley staff do not know who owns it and have to go via the clamping company to get the owner to get yellow parking notices made. Wynne Baxter do not own it either.
They hide round the corner on Sundays and clamp with a £125 removing fee.

Hi I believe that its owned by Stiles or one of those developers?
There was an article (Sussex Express) again as I remember about a clamper having tyres slashed at a bootsale on the first sunday they enforced it ?
something about they put up small signs a few days prior as that whole road from Eastgate street back out onto the Causway is owned by them then they clamped everything that parked illegally. I think Norman Baker was there or turned up later to get photo in paper.
It was well taked about on here also
type into the lewes search box "BOOT SALE CLAMPING" should bring up a few previous posts

Thanks LL. All it says in the Sx Ex is that the owner is London based. I have spoke to the clampers (Coast2coast) and they will not tell me because of the data protection act etc!!! I doubt it is Style.

I think if someone is taking money from us we're entitled to see evidence that they are acting for the landowner. Isn't this something that the newshounds of the Sussex Express should be looking into?

Ah should have looked at previous post on this site. 'Rebel' said in 2008 that it was a company called 'Chevel'. Does anyone know anything about them?

Land is owned by a property management company called CHEVAL who are based in London. This company own/manage about half a dozen shops in the precinct and with their acquisition came the ownership of the carpark outside Laura Ashley and the road behind Waitrose.
Rumour has it that it is Martin Elliott who owns Cheval.
The clamping company frequently change their name - so far they have been "Guardian, "Ethical" and now "Coast2Coast" - no doubt a way of avoiding adverse publicity (and litigation).

That rumour is incorrect according to Cheval.
On 17 Jun 2009 at 11:32am Ed Can Do wrote:
Companies house suggests they've been around since the 60's, there's also a Cheval Properties Holdings Limited, which I imagine technically owns the company.
If you want to know who actually owns the company, I'd suggest downloading the annual return from the Companies House website, it's only £1.
