The DVLA ban on wheel clamping on private property comes into effect today the 1st of October 2010.
The ban effectively means all licences to clamp vehicles on private property are revoked, and it is now a criminal offence/illegal for security firms to place a clamp on a car that has been parked in a private car park.
This ban does not affect councils or government contractors working for the DVLA.
For more details visit the DVLA website.
Note that this does not stop security firms from issuing you with a Parking Charge Notice (PCN) and issuing proceedings to collect this if you park un-authorised on a private car park!
