Title: Councils set to make £1 Billion from parking charges

And we all thought that it was the private parking companies that needed to be regulated! It seems that Local Authorities are now being just as predatory. Full story here (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-48809174)

No real surprises here. Remember that it was Westminster Council's introduction of parking charges for motorcycles that spawned the NoToMob. However, I am a little surprised that Westminster's surplus still seems to be at about the same level (£70 millions) as six or seven years ago - have they now started creaming off some of their surplus and diverting it to other, unlawful. areas?
