Dear Stoke on Trent City Council,

I wanted to get in touch to see if you'd please be able to help me with a few of these questions, relating to your area.

I would like to know..
1. How many Blue Badge holders are in your area?
2. How many council-owned parking spaces there are?
3. How many of these council-owned parking spaces are for Blue Badge holders?
4. How many of these council-owned parking spaces are parent-child spaces?
5. How many fines are, on average, given out, to those that park in Blue Badge spaces that aren't allowed to park there?
6. The same for parent-child spaces.

If you could please get back to me as soon as you can, that would be really great.

Many thanks!
