Bexley council - A fine mess

Return to News Index

Bexley council provides rich pickings for The Taxpayers’ Alliance, it being one of the most spendthrift and dishonest councils in London. The Alliance has obtained information under the Freedom of Information Act which reveals that Bexley, on average, fines every single one of its residents, men, women and children, an average of £25.40 per year for parking and bus lane infringements. Presumably the figure is boosted by Bexley’s fondness for testing and even breaking the limits of the law by issuing tickets where no legal order exists and for going out of its way to put up ineffective warning signs.

The council’s own report on its parking enforcement activities may be read here. (1Mb pdf file.)
