Parking permit prices have been slammed as a ‘cash cow’ by councillors who are forcing a policy review to be heard – despite claims reducing the cost could threaten lollipop ladies.

Sheffield Council brushed aside two petitions calling for a reduction in permits for zones including Hillsborough, Broomhill, Crookesmoor and Banner Cross currently costing £36 per first car and £72 for a second, The Star revealed.

But Liberal Democrat councillors have now ‘called in’ the authority’s decision to keep prices the same, meaning it will have to be discussed again at an upcoming Economic and Environmental Wellbeing Scrutiny Committee before the plans can be put into place.
