Council profits from car parking charges

23 Dec

Councils in Devon and Cornwall generated a combined ‘profit’ of £24.4 million from their day-to-day, on and off-street parking operations in 2012-13, according to figures from the RAC Foundation. This was an increase on the £24.26 million collected in 2011-12 and follows on from above-£20 million hauls in the previous two financial years.  Full story HERE
Which makes it all the more interesting that the following Freedom of Information  request  about how much profit EDDC has made from parking charges so far remains unanswered:

Bear in mind that ALL profits from car parking charges are meant to be ploughed back into transport-related improvements in the district.
