Dear Craven District Council,
ParkingEye is well known for erecting car parking signage without obtaining Advertisement Consent. It also uses ANPR without obtaining planning consent.
Do you hold any information which indicates that ParkingEye/Morrisons has the necessary consents for its signage and ANPR cameras?
If there are no such consent, are consents required for this car park?
Dear Mr Ransome,
I am writing to you further to your request for information that was originally received by the Council on 4 August 2015. This matter is being dealt with as a request under the Freedom of Information Act. You asked for the following:-
1. Do you hold any information which indicates that ParkingEye/Morrisons has the necessary consents for its signage and ANPR cameras?
2. If there are no such consent, are consents required for this car park?
Following a search of our paper and electronic records, I have established that the information you requested is not held by this Council. I can however advise that there have been no applications made for the signage to which you refer.
If you have any queries about this letter please contact me, quoting the reference number above.
If you are not happy with this response you may request an internal review by emailing [Craven District Council request email] or by writing to the Freedom of Information Officer, Craven District Council, Belle Vue Square, Broughton Road, Skipton, North Yorkshire, BD23 1FJ. Any request for a review should be submitted within two months of the date of this letter.
If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you may apply directly to the Information Commissioner’s Office for a decision. Generally the Commissioner cannot make a decision unless you have exhausted our own complaints procedure. The Information Commissioner’s Office can be contacted at the Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

Dear Ian Swain,
Thank you for your reply.
1. Please advise of the date when the Planning Authority first became aware of the breach of the Town and Country Planning (Control of Advertisements) (England) Regulations 2007 in relation to the car park signage
2. Please supply copies of any correspondence between the Council and Morrisions/ParkingEye relating to the breach of the 2007 regulations
3. Please confirm or otherwise whether ParkingEye/Morrisons has planning consent for any ANPR cameras
4. If no planning consent is in place please supply copies of any correspondence betweeen the Council and ParkingEye/Morrisions calling for an application
Please advise your Planners of this link https://www.dropbox.com/sh/kmmeb25hzn6ov... from which they will note that ParkingEye regularly do not bother to comply with Planning Control requirements. Further the email from the BPA shows that ParkingEye lies about how it cannot lawfully make any applications for any relevant consents. This email also appears to indicates that its a risk assessment by ParkingEye that they can get away with planning infringements becasue Planning Authorities never take actio nagainst them. Is Craven the same?
Please also provide your planners with this link https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/m... - another example of a failure to comply with planning control requirements and this link relates to Morrisons/ParkingEye
Just some background information that may be of assistance. Perhaps Cravan Planners wil lalso be given the run around
