Dear Duncan Cushenan,


Thank you for your below Freedom of Information request sent to Worcester
City Council.



I would like to know how many parking tickets/notices were issued in the
following years and how much revenue was generated in fines from them:






For the years 2014, 2015 and up to April 2016, the information you have
requested is publically available from the Council’s website at the
follwing address: [3]



In relation to the remaining information you have requested revenue
generated in fines for 2016. Worcester City Council does hold the
information you have requested. However, in accordance with Section
22(1)(c) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 the information you have
requested is exempt as the Council plans to publish this information in
the future.


In coming to this decision I have considered the public interest and I
believe that the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs
the public interest in disclosing the information at this stage.


I have formed this view as follows:


Worcester City Council receives regular Freedom of Information requests
for information about parking enforcement. As many of these requests are
for similar information, the Council releases a comprehensive Civil
Parking Enforcement Annual Report which covers all aspects of your request
and will be available from the web link provided in response to question


By the Council taking this approach it minimises the impact on the
relevant service enabling them to focus on their core business, which in
this case is administering the Council’s enforcement duties.


I believe the public interest is greater served by enabling this work to
be undertaken in a timely manner rather than, in this case duplicating
the  provision of information which is already intended to be made public
in the future as outlined above.


If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the
right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be
submitted no later than two months from the date of our response to your
original request. These requests should be sent by email to
[4][Worcester City Council request email] or to the following postal address:


The Monitoring Officer

Worcester City Council

The Guildhall

High Street




If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: Information
Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9
5AF.If you have any queries about this request please do not hesitate to
contact us. Please remember to quote the reference number above in any
future communications.


Yours sincerely,

William Wade
