1. I would like to know how many fixed penalty notices the council has issued in each of the past three calendar years. If calendar years are not available, I would like the figures to be collated in financial years.
2. I would also like to know the total revenue from fixed penalty notices in each of the past three years.
3. I would also like to see a broad breakdown in categories of what these fixed penalties were issued for.
3. Finally, I would like to know how many fixed penalty notices have been issued - either partially or entirely - based on evidence from public space CCTV footage in each of the past three years.
Thank you for your freedom of information request. I would advise that Brentwood Borough Council do not issue fixed penalty notices, we issue penalty charge notices for civil parking enforcement of our off street car parks for contravention of the off street parking places orders. All on street enforcement is the responsibility of Essex county Council as the Highways authority.
I have therefore provided you with the details requested in relation to off street penalty charge notices for the period requested.
Financial year 2010 -2011 PCN's issued 1750
Financial year 2011 -2012 PCN;s issued 1758
financial year 2012 -2013 PCN's issued 1412
recovery figures on PCN issue for each of the financial years is as follows:
2010 -2011 £40,655.00
2011 - 2012 £39,536.00
2012 -2013 £31,246.55
the breakdown in broad terms of contraventions is as follows:
parked in a permit bay
parked in a disabled bay without entitlement
parked in a loading area
parked longer than permitted
parked after payment expired
parked without clearly displaying (permit or PandD ticket)
re-parked within non return time
parked beyond bay markings
I can confirm that Brentwood Borough Council do not use CCTV enforcement in its car parks.
