REF:            2017-601

Subject:        Car parking fines

          

 

Request:

 

The amount of car parking fines issued and the amount of money received from these fines for the car parks at the Bolton Hospital.

For the following financial years: 2015-2016 2016-2017 2017-present

 

 

Response:

·         The number of Breach of Contract Notices Issued figures are the number issued for which no appeal was received or an appeal was not upheld.

·         The number of Breach of Contract Notices paid without legal intervention and the money paid directly to the Trust relates to those handled “in house” either paid within the 14 day period or within 14 days of an appeal not being upheld.

 

 

I am unable to give the figures for the income received for those Breach of Contract Notices for which payment or an appeal was not received within 14 days and therefore were subsequently sent to the Trust Solicitors who handle the cases from this stage forward. It can take a considerable time with the Solicitors including the potential of a court case before these are settled. Payments for these are often received many months and in some instances years after the initial Breach of Contract Notice was issued.
