So today Justice Lang DBE decided that the hike in CPZ charges (first car permit from £40 to £100 and visitor vouchers from £1 to £4) was unlawful as it was a change intended to revenue raise and not form a good traffic management purpose. You can read the full judgment here.
In the local paper, here, the Leader of the council, Richard Cornelius, says that the council they are minded to appeal. He needs his mind changing! If you are one of the 8% or so of residents who live inside a CPZ and have to suffer extortionate charges, why not send Richard an email and tell him why the council shouldn't appeal.

I am sure he will be delighted to hear your view. You might as well send a copy to the Cabinet member in charge of parking firstname.lastname@example.org
