Dear Sheffield City Council,

Thanks for your reply. I managed to find the number of bus lane PCNs from the file 'Bus Lane PCN data 2014-19, pcn issued, cancelled and appealed.xlsx ', but my request also asked for the revenue generated from these PCNs.

While I managed to find the overall revenue generated from PCNs in the "Parking Account 2018-19" PDF, I couldn't find it broken down to show the revenue generated specifically from bus lane PCNs. Would you be able to point me in the right direction or provide me with this information?

Yours sincerely,

Jamie Dixon
