Annual income by car park

Parking Services annual report

The CEC Parking Strategy (PDF, 2.7MB) reflects the wider traffic management and enforcement responsibilities of authorities beyond just parking. There is a statutory duty for local authorities to publish certain parking statistics and financial information. Patrol promotes the publication of more comprehensive parking and traffic management annual reports.

An Annual Report provides an opportunity for authorities to set out clearly and transparently the, ‘what, why and how’ of their civil enforcement activities. By doing so, they will be providing the vital context around the traffic management objectives that lie beneath, which are ultimately in place to meet the needs of residents, businesses and visitors.
