Consultation on local authority parking

The Government has been running a consultation on local authority parking – a subject of much political debate recently. Although local authority parking is not Parking Cowboys usual subject matter, we do take more than a passing interest. The British Parking Association have published their response, as have the campaign group, NoToMob. As one would imagine, their views tend to be at opposing ends of the spectrum.

What we found particularly interesting about these responses is that on one hand you have a document full of unsubstantiated assertions, and on the other hand you have a detailed document, providing detailed reasoning and data to back up their argument. One of these responses is from a band of volunteers, and the other a professional industry association. Ignoring where you stand on the debate, I found this quite incredible, and perhaps telling.
