Seek approval of the allocation of the surplus arising from on-street CPE operations


the allocation of the CPE surplus, as set out in table 2 of the report, is approved and the proposed spend of the Superintendence Reserve noted.

Reasons for the decision:

For traffic management purposes, on-street parking charges are in operation in Harrogate, Knaresborough, Scarborough, Filey, Whitby and Northallerton. As a consequence of these charges and other income received through the administration of CPE, after operational costs have been met, a surplus is generated.

The surplus can be used for parking, or alternatively where the provision of further off-street parking accommodation is unnecessary or undesirable, the surplus can be used for public transport, highway or road improvement projects or environmental improvements. The surplus can be spent anywhere in North Yorkshire as the whole county is a designated Civil Enforcement Area.
Allocating this income allows the County Council to invest in highways and transportation improvement projects and services.
