Number of parking tickets in Lichfield and Burntwood up 50 per cent

The number of parking tickets issued in Lichfield and Burntwood has risen sharply.

New figures show that 5,903 were issued between April 1 and December 31 last year – up more than 50 per cent on the same period in 2012.

A report to the Lichfield Joint Parking Board said: “This increase is the result of
improvement in performance by APCOA which followed a change in management.”

The improved figures have led to Lichfield District Council extending the contract with APCOA to provide parking enforcement until March 2015.

The report also showed that the income from parking enforcement was up 23.8 per cent to £61,875 during the April to December 2013 period.

However, costs associated with issuing tickets means that the scheme ran at a deficit of £15,400.

    These figures lead to the conclusion that the average fine is less than £10.50 and that the previous average was around £12.70. At this rate they will be paying us to park.

    How can turning an income of £61,875 into a loss of £15,400 be described as “improvement in perfoemance by APCOA” ? and has led to their contract being extended! The mind boggles…
