Vehicle clamping

The Parking Service* does not clamp vehicles. Private clamping companies operate on private areas within the Borough under an agreement with land owners and are outside our control (areas such as the loading bays behind the shops in Hemel Hempstead town centre and private residential areas such as Stephenson Wharf in Apsley).

We strongly advise drivers to park legally and if in doubt, to use our public car parks.

If you have any complaints about a clamping company you should write to the Security Industry Authority (SIA) at the address below. The SIA is responsible for the licensing of clamping companies.
