DO NOT PAY THESE charge notices, APPEAL. I have had the same issue with picking up and dropping off children. In December I appealed as the signage specifically stated "Pick Up and Drop Off Point". You can see this on Google maps:

This sign has been changed (in the last week?). We have since received a further Parking Charge Notice dated 5th Feb. I am appealing as there was no clear sign indicating this change of terms and conditions. Also, there is insufficient explanation on the Notice "Unauthorised Parking". The car was not parked, but stopped in the roadway, not a parking bay. Further, as one poster has commented the photographic evidence produced by UK Car Park Management is insufficient (half a dark blurry photo..). There does not seem to be an exemption for 'turning round in a car park' as you are still using private land. There does seem to be a relatively standard 10 minute leeway after a ticket expires though.
Appeal to email@example.com
. They won't like you appealing by email, but there is no legal reason why you should be forced write to them - they are purposely creating an inconvenient means of appeal. Also copy Will Hurley, Chief Executive Officer of International Parking Community, the association to which CPM belong. firstname.lastname@example.org
I would mention the directors Lukhbir Singh Gohler and James Bryan Randall, as this shows you mean business.
If councillors and the local MP are also appealed to, given lack of any other safe pick up / drop off for children, this may also have an effect in the long term on rogue private parking operators like UK Car Park Management Ltd.
