APPEAL COURT FOR LONDON'S NEW PARKING REGIME

From July 4, nearly all parking enforcement in London will be carried out by local councils and their parking attendants, reports the London Evening Standard (p16).

To complement this, there is a new procedure for those 'offenders' who wish to appeal their parking infringement notices, according to Nick Lester, director of the Parking Committee for London.

Defendants will attend, in the words Mr Lester, an 'intentionally informal and unintimidating' 15-minute interview with an adjudicator at the committee's offices in The Haymarket, the Standard reports.

The ultimate idea is to 'inspire confidence' in the capital's new parking regime, according to Mr Lester.

The adjudicators strictly adhere to a remit of six criteria for an appeal, and once a ruling has been made, councils and motorists alike must abide by the decision, reports the Evening Standard.
