COUNTY COUNCIL WINS PARKING APPEAL DECISION

Oxfordshire CC has won its appeal against a decision taken by a national parking body on the way it introduced parking penalty charges in Oxford.

The National Parking Adjudication Service (NPAS) originally ruled in favour of a member of the public who claimed that the county council had not properly advertised that it had taken over parking enforcement from the Police in 1997. That ruling was made on 30 September.

But the county council appealed against the decision. That appeal has now been upheld by NPAS. This means that the setting and advertising of penalty charges for breaches of on-street parking regulations in Oxford was correct and therefore the issuing of penalty charge notices in Oxford since 1997 has been carried out in accordance with the law.

David Robertson, the council's executive member for transport, said: 'We are pleased with this decision which confirms our view that we had followed the right practice at the time the county council took over parking enforcement'.
