Sunderland Council NPAS appeal cave-in

The farce continues.

Breaking news coming in involves another NPAS Sunderland appellant.
His written submission to the National Parking Adjudication Service contained evidence that the City of Sunderland (South Sunderland) (Waiting, Loading and Parking) (Consolidation) Order 2003 was not in force and therefore any PCNs issued in the area contained within the order was not lawful.

Written evidence submissions had to be in by 29th May as this was a postal appeal.

Substantial evidence was submitted with regard to missing signs, lines and Traffic Regulation Orders contained in the Consolidated Order...which meant that although the order had been made it could not come into force as all the lines, signs and TROs were not correct.

Sunderland City Council, it appears, supplied no evidence...

Yet they still continue to issue in the area bounded by the order. Some would call this obtaining money by deception. We prefer to refer to the offence of Misfeasance of Public Office.

However, the problem for the Council gets worse...if the Order falls then so does the permission granted by the Secretary of State to operate the Decriminalised Parking Enforcement regime.
