Evening Standard article on WCC report

http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/standard/article-23964650-council-to-use-parking-fines-to-plug-pound-14m-hole-in-budget.do

"Westminster council has identified parking tickets and fines as a source of millions of pounds of "additional income", it emerged today. It has set a £37 million target despite rules that ban local authorities from making money out of traffic controls.

Campaigners today accused the council of using parking controls as a "stealth tax" after Barbara Moorhouse, the director of finance, revealed in a briefing that council officers had been told to "look more closely at parking and community safety to find further reductions (or additional income)". "

OK chaps. You know what to do.... ;)

The facts of the matter are that for the last three years our innovative parking measures have resulted in a 42 per cent decrease in the number of tickets issued.



@Lee...............We all do what we can to help  :-ev-:
