  • Bus Lane Camera in Southcote | Alok Sharma MP - Member of Parliament for Reading West
    the restriction is inadequate and too small in size Achievements to date Alok wrote to Reading Borough Council to raise his constituents concerns that that the bus lane has been used principally to raise significant sums of money for the Council given an Appeals Adjudicator s conclusion in Lt Kenneth Guest s successful appeal case which stated that the advance warning signs and the bus lane entry signs do not give adequate information about the bus lane Alok s letter to the Council asked whether the signage had been updated following the adjudicator s conclusion in this case The Council s response stated that it had reviewed the signs in question and that adjustments have been made to them although these adjustments did not include an increase in the size of any of the advance warning signs Alok submitted a FOI request regarding the bus lane to the Council and this revealed that between the installation of a camera at the bus lane in July 2009 and May 2012 over 9 570 Penalty Charge Notices PCNs were issued The 60 PCN fine with a 50 reduction if paid within 14 days means the Council would have received between 287 100 and 574 200 in fines for that period Alok wrote to the Secretary of State for Transport to request clarification with regards to whether the bus lane warning signs in question meet statutory requirements The response which Alok received from Norman Baker Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Transport indicated that the signs do not meet statutory requirements Alok therefore wrote again to Reading Borough Council enclosing the response from the Department for Transport and requesting that the existing advance warning signs are replaced with ones which meet statutory requirements Next steps Alok is pressing Reading Borough

  • Car Parking Charges in Tilehurst | Alok Sharma MP - Member of Parliament for Reading West
    charges on 3rd October 2011 at the Dunstall Close and Recreation Road car parks in Tilehurst caused concern amongst local business owners and shoppers As a result of the changes free parking at these car parks was reduced from one hour to half an hour Local representatives argue that this does not provide enough time for residents particularly the elderly to do their shopping banking run other errands and return to their car within half an hour Local traders have quoted drops in their revenue explaining that the new charging scheme has resulted in customers choosing to shop elsewhere Achievements to date Alok along with Tilehurst Councillor Sandra Vickers arranged a number of meetings with Reading Borough Council to give local business representatives and residents an opportunity to discuss the issue At the meetings the Council was persuaded to look again at the charging scheme and propose an alternative scheme which included the restoration of the first hour free parking The Council subsequently offered to reinstate the first hour free parking if a total of 20 25 annual season tickets at a cost of 250 each were purchased by the Tilehurst businesses for the two car parks A number of local business representatives expressed their interest in purchasing season tickets motivated by the potential reinstatement of the first hour of free parking Local representatives also suggested that another option that could potentially allow the Council to bring back the one hour free parking would be to extend the charging times of the car parks to 9am 6pm for example The Council undertook to consult with NCP on extending the charging hours Alok says It is incredibly frustrating that Reading Borough Council does not seem to appreciate the impact that introducing charging for car parking has on local businesses and that
