Call to reveal profits from parking fees and charges

Have your say

Sheffield Council is facing a call to reveal its latest profits from parking fines, fees and charges.

A report by MPs has asked all local authorities to publish an annual report, detailing how much money they make from parking and how it is spent.

Sheffield Council’s opposition Liberal Democrats are proposing a motion at Wednesday’s full council meeting calling for the council to reveal the data regularly.

Coun Ian Auckland, Lib Dem transport spokesman, said: “Transparency in local councils is important and that’s why, when we controlled the council, we published parking revenues and how the money was spent. It’s time for the council to come clean with residents.”
