The Claimant leaseholder of a unit in an industrial park sought an injunction to prevent the Management             Company from introducing an overnight parking scheme to cover the cost of business rates for a communal car park, pursuant to their right to prescribe reasonable rules and regulations.
 
  Held: The scheme was not reasonable as charges were levied without consideration of the market price and    sought to recover costs referable to the whole estate from one particular group of tenants (those users of car park who used it overnight).
