Parking fines

Alex Beard made this Freedom of Information request to North East Lincolnshire Council as part of a batch sent to 11 authorities

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 successful.

Dear sir/madam,

I am writing to make an open government request for all the information to which I am entitled under the freedom of information act. In order to assist you with this request, I am outlining my query as specifically as possible. If however this request is too wide or too unclear, I would be grateful if you could contact me as I understand that under the act, you are required to advise and assist requesters.

I am requesting the following information:
I would like to know the total number of parking fines issued by the council over the past five years across the council's boundary, up to the most recent set of figures.

I would also like to know the total value of these fines.

With data above I would also like a breakdown of the locations where these fines were issued. I am however wary that a request for broad locations may be at risk of exceeding the budget for an FOI request.

Please provide me a minimum of 10 to 15 streets in the borough which have highest number of parking charges issued by the council on record. If not please provide me the breakdown for locations across the district where the council has issued fines.

With my 10 to 15 street request, please provide a set number of streets across the five year period.

On these, please include a number for the amount of charges and the value of these fines.

Could the officer also provide a summary council's remit for issuing parking fines.

I understand that under the act, I should be entitled to a response within 20 working days. I would be grateful if you could confirm via email that you have received this request. Ideally I would like the information outlined in my request emailed to me. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Thanks,
Alexander Beard
