Local authorities face ￡5m parking bill
Five London local authorities might have to pay back an believed ￡5 million price of parking tickets.
A BBC analysis learned that 100s of diplomatic parking bays happen to be placed in London without local authorities obtaining the necessary permission in the Department for Transport. Consequently, the limitations around the bays’ useage can’t be legally enforced.
Consequently, everybody that has received a ticket previously six years is instantly titled to some 100 % refund. However, the BBC report indicates a few of the bays have been established for 22 years, which some repayments might have to be backdated to then.
The bays are operated by the Westminster, Camden, Islington, Chelsea and Kensington local authorities.
