NCC - Complaints, Newport City Council

Dear Emma Leigh-Hull,

 

Thank you for your recent request for information which I have enclosed
below for ease of reference. Your request has been treated in accordance
with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and/or the Environmental
Information Regulations 2004.

Your Request: REQ09346

I can confirm that we do hold information that falls within the scope of
your request. The answers to your questions have been provided in Red Text
below:

 1. How many Blue Badge holders are in your area?

9531.

2. How many council-owned parking spaces there are?

2041.

3. How many of these council-owned parking spaces are for Blue Badge
holders?

33.

4. How many of these council-owned parking spaces are parent-child spaces?

None.

5. How many fines are given out a month (on average) for people that park
in Blue Badge spaces when they have no Blue Badge?

This information is not recorded in an easily accessible way. To enable us
to identify the information you requested we would need to manually look
at every Penalty Charge Notice (PCN’s) issued since we started on the 1^st
July 2019 to ascertain the reason for the issuing.  There could be several
different reasons why a Badge wasn’t displayed at the time the vehicle was
observed, in some circumstances the PCN will be waivered if challenged and
evidence accepted.  There are 3272 records and it would take approximately
1min to check an individual record, therefore to check all records it
would take approximately 54.5hrs.

Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act states that a public
authority is not obliged to comply with a request for information if the
authority estimates that the cost of complying with the request would
exceed the appropriate limit of either 18 hours and/or £450.

6. The same for parent-child spaces.

None.

I hope this provides the information you were looking for; if there is any
further information that we can provide, please submit a further request.
If you have any queries about this email or if you are unhappy with the
service you have received in relation to your request and wish to make a
complaint or request a review of our decision, please contact me

If you are not content with the subsequent outcome of your complaint, you
may apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision.
Generally, the ICO cannot make a decision unless you have exhausted the
Councils complaints procedure. The Information Commissioner can be
contacted at: The Information Commissioners Office, Wycliffe House, Water
Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF.

For future reference, all Freedom of Information requests can now be
