FOI 8416

Over-vending of parking machines


Please send me the following information:

The total amount of money overpaid (as a result of the parking machines/meters not being configured to return change – also known as “over-vending”) into car parking meters in the authorities’ control, in the last two financial years (2011/12 & 2012/13).


Brentwood Borough council hold information only in relation to its car parks as all on street pay and display is managed by the South Essex parking partnership at Chelmsford City Council.

Response sent as an attachement - a spreadsheet that shows each financial year requested giving income by tariff (sales through machine) against the income collected from the pay and display machine which then gives the overvend figures.
These figures are unaudited and are taken from machine report statistics on a computerised system.
