Parking Permit Enforcement Costs and Revenue

We're waiting for Joe Puddifoot to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Greenwich Borough Council,

I am looking to ascertain information on Parking Enforcement. I would like all of the below split for each year going back to the year 2009. All information should be in Spreadsheet format with a sheet for each point.

1. A breakdown of the number of parking permits issued by Greenwich, with Resident and Business permits broken out separately, summed by Permit area code.

2. A breakdown of parking fine (Parking Charge Notice) revenue, if possible by the same area splits as Parking Permits, if not by any geographical breakdown possible. This would be ideally split out as revenue total and number of fines.

3. Rolling annual spend on enforcement of these focussing on the salaries of anyone tasked with issuing fines.

4. Rolling annual spend for issuing permits to residents including salaries of staff.

5. Annual spend on temporary permits for visitors.

Yours faithfully,
Joe

Dear Mr Puddifoot

Freedom of Information Request:  FOI 26161
Thank you for your request dated 25^th March 2019.

 

The Council apologise for our late response and can now provide the
following information:

 

I am looking to ascertain information on Parking Enforcement. I would like
all of the below split for each year going back to the year 2009. All
information should be in Spreadsheet format with a sheet for each point.

 

1. A breakdown of the number of parking permits issued by Greenwich, with
Resident and Business permits broken out separately, summed by Permit area
code.

Please see Attachment 1 

2. A breakdown of parking fine (Parking Charge Notice) revenue, if
possible by the same area splits as Parking Permits, if not by any
geographical breakdown possible. This would be ideally split out as
revenue total and number of fines.

Please see Attachment 2 for a breakdown of the parking fine revenue.

The Council are applying an exemption to the location of the PCNs –
Section 12  Cost of Compliance.

 

Section 12(1) does not oblige a local authority to comply with a request
for information if the authority estimates that the cost of complying with
the request would exceed the appropriate limit.

 

The Freedom of Information and Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and
Fees) Regulations 2004 (“the Fees Regulations) sets the appropriate limit
at £450 for the public authority in question.  Under these Regulations, a
public authority can charge a maximum of £25 per hour for work undertaken
to comply with a request.  This equates to 18 hours work.

 

A public authority is only required to provide a reasonable estimate or
breakdown of costs and in putting together its estimate it can take the
following processes into consideration:-

 

(a)   Determining whether it holds the information

(b)   Locating the information, or a document which may contain the
information;

(c)    Retrieving the information, or a document which may contain the
information, and

(d)   Extracting the information from a document containing it.

 

 

The Council would need to check the reports for each year.  Just for
2009/2010 alone, the Council issued PCNs in over 2000 locations. In order
to check which area a location would fall into (and to place into the area
data sheet) would take over one minute per location. Over the years
requested (10 financial years) we have issued in well over 20,000
locations. This is equivalent to over 333 hours and would exceed the 18
hours time limit allowed to comply with the request.

Section 16 places a duty on public authorities to provide advice and
assistance, so far as it would be reasonable to expect the authority to do
so, to persons who propose to make, or have made requests for information
to it, you may wish to refine your request.

   

3. Rolling annual spend on enforcement of these focussing on the salaries
of anyone tasked with issuing fines.

 Please see Attachment 3

4. Rolling annual spend for issuing permits to residents including
salaries of staff.

 Please see Attachment 3

5. Annual spend on temporary permits for visitors.

 Please see Attachment 1.  The Council only hold this information from
2013/14 onwards.

 

If you have any queries about this correspondence, please contact me,
quoting the reference number above.

 

If you are not satisfied with our response to your request, you can ask
for an Internal Review.  Internal review requests should be submitted
within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your original
request.  If you wish to do this, please contact us, setting out why you
are dissatisfied.

 

If you are not satisfied with the outcome of the Internal Review, you may
apply directly to the Information Commissioner (ICO) for a decision. 
Generally, the ICO cannot make a decision unless you have exhausted the
Internal Review procedure provided by the Council. You can contact the ICO
by emailing [1][email address], or by post at Customer Contact,
Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow,
SK9 5AF.
