James-Andrew:Houghton

Dear Sir or Madam,

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 I would like to request some information relating to the enforcement of parking restrictions, specifically penalty charge notices.

1. I would like to request the amount of money Raised from parking tickets from Pershore road (between the Belgravia island and the islands at Cotteridge )for 2008 and 2009 to date.

2. I would also like to request any information regarding
‘reward’/bonus schemes/contracts in place for your parking
enforcement officers. This is envisaged to cover the details of any systems, including (where bonuses are paid) the amount per officer per year, for the last Two (2) years.

3. How much of this money was given to N.P.A.S. the National Parking Adjudication Service

If this information is held by an outside contractor then it is your responsibility under the FOIA to obtain that information.

If it is held by another public body then please can you inform me of this and if possible transfer the request to that public body.

My preferred format to receive this information is by electronic means. For both parts I would like the response to be in the form of a raw text file, tab delimited, with text qualifiers where required.

Yours faithfully,

Act 2000. Please find enclosed our response to your questions:-

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 I would like to request some
information relating to the enforcement of parking restrictions,
specifically penalty charge notices.

1. I would like to request the amount of money Raised from parking
tickets from Pershore road (between the Belgravia island and the

The following revenue has been received from paid Penalty Charge Notices

***reward***/bonus schemes/contracts in place for your parking

NSL services are contracted to provide parking enforcement on behalf of
Birmingham City Council. All CEO's are employees of NSL Services and not
the City Council. To the best of our knowledge they do not pay bonuses
based on the number of PCN's issued. Any requests under the Freedom of
Information Act will; have to be made to NSL Services.

Parking Adjudication Service

None of the above revenue received from payment of the Penalty Charge
Notices referenced in 1. above was passed to the National Parking
Adjudication Service.

Dear Birmingham City Council,

Just to clean up any answers that may be a bit too specific, you responded above to the Question '3. How much of this money was given to N.P.A.S. the National Parking Adjudication Service ?

A: None of the above revenue received from payment of the Penalty Charge Notices referenced in 1. above was passed to the National Parking Adjudication Service.'
