Parking is an issue which many of you feel strongly about. Folkestone & Hythe District Council state there has been a substantial increase from on street & off street parking and an increase in penalty notices. (Who says drivers are not cash cows for councils?). However, the Shepwayvox Team are a little confused, here’s why
Inserted is Note 28 page 64 of the Draft Statement of Accounts, it speaks about “On street parking.”
At both Overview & Scrutiny Committee on Tuesday 12th June and at Cabinet on Wednesday 13th June 2018 report C/18/08 was presented to Cllrs. At Page 36 of the report. it states
At Note 2.8 of the Cabinet Papers (pg 37) it states:
The Draft accounts show a decrease of £49,000 year on year for income relating to on street parking, not a substantial increase, as quoted. We know there are some very clever and very creative accountants out there who might be able to explain how a decrease of £49,000 might become a substantial increase.
