*re-published: call-in no longer applies* Allocation of Civil Parking Enforcement Surplus

Decision Maker: Corporate Director of Business and Environmental Services

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


Approved the allocation of the Civil Parking Enforcement (CPE) annual surplus and use of reserve general working balance in the 3 year period 2019/20, 20/21 and 21/22.

Reasons for the decision:

*PLEASE NOTE This decision was originally published on or near the date of the decision and so call in no longer applies. It has been re-published as part of the change in committee management system that we use.*

As a consequence of parking charges and other income received through the administration of CPE, a surplus is generated. Once all enforcement and operational costs have been met, the surplus can be used/reinvested for parking, or alternatively where parking is unnecessary or undesirable, it can be used for public transport, highways or environmental improvements (Sec 55, Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, as amended).

On conclusion of the approved 3 year investment period ending March 2019, it was necessary to gain approval for CPE surplus and reserve expenditure in the next 3 years 2019/20, 20/21 and 21/22.

Alternative options considered:

No alternatives were consider or rejected.
