I would like to request the number of parking fines issued in the council’s name over the last three years (from January 1, 2014 – January 1, 2017) broken down by year.
Could you please also provide:
The number of appeals made against these fines, both successful and unsuccessful, broken down by year.
The total income made from the fines, broken down by year.
The top three most common reasons for a successful appeal.
The average fine paid during this period.
If this information is held by an outside contractor then could the information please be retrieved as the FOIA dictates. 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.
If you need any clarification of this request, or if it is too broad in any way please feel free to email me.
If some parts of this request are more difficult to answer than others please release the answerable material as it is available rather than hold up the entire request for the contested data.
Brentwood Borough Council only holds the data you have requested in part. I have been unable to breakdown all the reasons for successfully and unsuccessful appeal as requested.
I have prepared a table of the information the Council does hold which I trust you will find useful
Average amount paid
