The car park belongs to a well known high street supermarket chain.


Are you sure about this? It is quite common especially in town centres for Supermarkets to reach an agreement with the local authority to manage their car parks. This includes using their enforcement powers. You may wish to check this with the council.

You may reproduce traffic-sign images free of charge and without having to seek permission, but you must reproduce them accurately and not in a misleading context (eg not on roadside billboards where they could mislead drivers). You should also include a statement that these images are Crown copyright.

Thank you.

Yes I am 100% certain it belongs to the supermarket.
