Dear Anthony Brown,

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 - INFORMATION REQUEST REFERENCE –
0662/1516

 

Thank you for your email that we received on 30 September 2015, requesting
information relating to PCN’s.

 

In response to your request I can now provide the following information. 

 

1) What is the total surrounding areas that are covered by the Residents
or shared use parking zone restrictions for the area sited centrally at
Chalk close? Please display as a map with boundary all zones displayed or
listed by all the names the restrictions cover i.e. Chalk close,
Bickersteth Close etc.

The attached link is a list of street names covered by the residents
parking scheme in the Trinity Gardens Resident Parking Zone. A plan is
attached showing boundaries of the
zone [1]https://www.stockton.gov.uk/media/2399/t...

 

2) What is the total surrounding areas that are NOT covered by the
Residents or shared use parking zone restrictions for the area sited
centrally at Chalk close?. Please display as a map with boundary all zones
displayed or listed by all the names the restrictions cover i.e. Chalk
close, Bickersteth Close etc. i.e. areas where non-residents are allowed
to park within that area.

Attached is a plan showing town centre parking not covered by the
residents parking scheme
[2]https://www.stockton.gov.uk/media/5003/s...

 

3) What is your policy on placing Civil Enforcement officers patrolling
within the Residents or shared use parking zone for the areas listed
above   - i.e. are they each allocated specific areas of the town to
patrol? and if so what times of the day do they patrol?

There is no policy for officers patrolling the residents parking schemes.
Each CEO will cover the zones on an allocated area they are given on the
rota. The CEOs work on a shift system 5 days on and 5 days off Monday to
Saturday 7am – 6pm.   

 

4) Do Civil Enforcement officers rely on calls from Residents of above
areas, to respond to possible contraventions? If so how many reports have
been made over the last five years?

Civil Enforcement officers do not rely on calls from residents to respond
to possible contraventions, however, if an officer was conducting a
patrol, and was alerted to a possible contravention, then he/she would be
expected to investigate accordingly.

 

5) How many enforcements of any kind have been made in the Stockton-on
Tees area since 2010? (Or as far back as your data goes, if you hold
less.) Please include a breakdown showing the number of actions taken,
per year, per type of action (e.g. tickets, warning, clamped, etc)

Please see attached 5 years of annual reports showing all contraventions
and PCNs issued against each contravention.

 

6) How many Persons (Roles having being identified through their
challenge) such as Care workers, Health visitors,  have challenged the
Penalty charge notices within the Stockton-on-Tees area.

We do not hold this information, however reasons for challenge are
included in Annual Reports.

 

If you have any queries or concerns please contact me in the first
instance.

been handled, you can submit a complaint by writing to:
