This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Hammersmith and Fulham Borough Council,

I have noted that in their latest list of members the BPA (British Parking Association) lists yourselves:
https://www.britishparking.co.uk/BPA-Mem...

The BPA is not a highly regarded organisation by many motorists and seen as ineffective in regulating the private parking operators who make up the bulk of its membership; MPs in the House of Commons have also echoed these concerns.

Therefore, can you please provide the following information about your membership:
- The date you first become a member.
- The reason for becoming the member.
- How it benefits your residents by being a member.
- Benefits received by being a member of the BPA.
- The annual costs for being a member of the BPA.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Jonathan WIlliams
