Membership of BPA (British Parking Association)

The request was partially successful.

Dear Rotherham Metropolitan 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

Dear Sirs,

Thank you for your prompt response. With regards to not providing annual membership costs, whilst the BPA does provide a schedule of fees on its website this a series of bands so is not the precise fee the authority pays which may also incorporate a separately negotiated discount from its published schedule. Therefore can you please provide this information?

Yours sincerely,

Jon Williams

Dear Mr Jonathan Williams,

Whilst the responding service were providing a response for your query
(below), they noticed that the 3^rd question of your request was
misinterpreted. The responding service interpreted the question as what
were the benefits to residents highlighted at the time Rotherham MBC
joined the BPA rather than benefits to residents in general.

 

In light of this, please see the updated response from Rotherham MBC
attached.
