PATROL annual accounts
The council is a member of the Parking and Traffic Regulations
Outside London (PATROL) Adjudication Joint Committee. The Joint
Committee publishes an Annual Statement of Accounts which is
subject to External Audit and for details about arrangements
for 2010/11 please visit the PATROL
The car parks are patrolled to prevent access ways being
obstructed. There is closed circuit television (CCTV) coverage and
high quality lighting to provide a safe environment. In the
multi-storey car parks, the parking service also makes sure that
the ticket machines are filled and provide a 24-hour call-out
facility in case the barriers fail to operate properly. If you
notice a light out in a car park, please phone Customer First who
will pass the fault on to the relevant person.
If you wish to see the CCTV footage and your request relates to
an incident involving theft or damage, please contact the police.
School Parking Enforcement
We work closely with the Safer
Journeys Team to help reduce the number of cars outside of
school gates by ensuring the enforcement of the schools'
yellow keep clear markings/zigzag lines.
In addition we attend community events, support activity
like the zigzag banner campaign and visit schools to help
with promoting road safety messages and active
travel schemes, such as the walking
bus and park and stride.
