FOI Request Parking Meter Change
1. Please could you provide me with information about the amount of money the council has collected in unreturned change or money recorded as over-vend from car parking meters/machines in 2010/11, 2011/12, 2012/13, 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16.
2. Could you also provide me with the the total number of car parking meters/machines the council was responsible and the number equipped to take non-cash forms of payment (e.g. card or mobile app) in each of those years (2010/11, 2011/12, 2012/13, 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16).
For example, with the second part if a council car park has three payment machines but drivers can pay through an app for the car park as a whole, that would be three payment machines with non-cash forms of payment.
1. This information is not available. It is therefore exempt under section 17 of the Freedom of Informattion (Scotland) Act 2002- Information not held. However we would expect the amount to be minimal as our parking charges are £1.00 for up to 2 hours, £2.00 for up to 4 hours and £4.00 for up to 10 hours. The car park machines accept coins only.
2. 2010/11 44 cash only
2011/12 44 cash only
2012/13 44 cash only
2013/14 44 cash only
2014/15 44 cash only
