Dewsbury parking fines

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear sir/madam,

I am writing to make an open government request for all the information to which I am entitled under the freedom of information act. In order to assist you with this request, I am outlining my query as specifically as possible. If however this request is too wide or too unclear, I would be grateful if you could contact me as I understand that under the act, you are required to advise and assist requesters.

I am requesting the following information:
I would like to know the total number of parking fines issued by the council over the past five years across Dewsbury, up to the most recent set of figures.

I would also like to know the total value of these fines.

With data above I would also like a breakdown of the locations where these fines were issued. I am however wary that a request for locations as broad as 'Thornhill Lees' may be at risk of exceeding the budget for an FOI request.

If this is the case please, please provide me a minimum of 10 to 15 streets in the district which have highest number of parking charges issued by HBC on record, if not please provide me the breakdown for locations across the district where the council has issued fines.

With my 10 to 15 street request, please provide a set number of streets across the five year period.

On these, please include a number for the amount of charges and the value of these fines.

Could the officer also provide a summary council's remit for issuing parking fines.

I understand that under the act, I should be entitled to a response within 20 working days. I would be grateful if you could confirm via email that you have received this request. Ideally I would like the information outlined in my request emailed to me. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Thanks,
Alexander Beard
