Wandsworth parking permit renewals
9:02am Wednesday 13th June 2012 in Your News
This year Wandsworth Council have decided not to send out renewal notices for residents parking permits. We and apparently many others have recently been hit with a £60 ticket for failing to renew on time.
Our local parking attendant told us this morning that he has been handing out "hundreds" of tickets to residents who would usually renew on time but have been caught out this year by the unannounced change in policy!
As any resident will know, for at least the last 18 years Wandsworth have sent renewal reminders and we therefore use this as our reminder each year to renew.
This is either a cost-saving scheme gone horribly wrong or a cynical attempt to extract more cash from residents - either way it's an appalling way to manage a council. Wandsworth residents need to stand up to this bullying - refuse to pay, complain, make them back down!!!
