Hello,

You cannot threaten to procesute offenders as this is not a criminal matter.

You could add wording such "Unauthorised parking on this land will result in the vehicle details being recorded that the vehicle may be clamped and/or towed at the driver's expense".

You could also erect a barrier or a parking charge sign saying that parking on this property will cost say 50 pounds for every period of 24 hours, subject to a minimum charge of 50 pounds.

This should deter offenders.

May I help further?
