The restrictions under S55 of the RTRA 1984 only apply to surplus revenue raised by on-street parking enforcement. Surplus revenue raised by off-street parking enforcement (such as Council car parks) can be spent on other budgets, which is why off-street parking is so attractive when councils want to find extra income streams.
