Lib Dem / Tory Council ripping off residents with parking charges

Brent Council rakes in a staggering £5,520,000 in surplus cash from its parking department but still insists the service is there to protect motorists.

The Council’s targeting of motorists to help fund their inactivity is atrocious. They shamefully refunded thousands of pounds after pressure from the Willesden and Brent Times after they sent out traffic wardens on Boxing Day last year despite saying four days earlier that it would be free.

So what is Brent’s parking policy actually about? Is it about parking enforcement, or all about raking in more money to fill the hole in the council’s finances?

With all the money being raised through motorists in Brent, why is the revenue being raised clearly not being used as efficiently as it can be to maintain our roads? On Wembley Stadium event days, traffic wardens can be seen ready to pounce on cars that have been parked within the stadium event parking permit zone.

Parking permits bring in £2,448,722 for the council while PCN removals account for £1,020,000 of annual income.

Looking at the see the level of surplus, the question has been raised by residents on whether the parking tickets are really issued to move traffic safely or are just a mere revenue raising exercise.
