Seems like the popularity of my blog is catching on in all circles ... even in the Council offices here in Sunderland.
What is unusual in this instance is that the posting which followed the Newcastle Journal's article regarding having two sets of conflicting Traffic Restrictions (TROs) in place for the same street.
"With regard to the comment on two sets of parking restrictions for the same street, it is a perfectly acceptable and proper practice to have two orders - one for the waiting and loading restrictions and the other for the parking places - relating to one street. The waiting and loading order will have in it, probably under "Interpretation", a provision removing the provisions of the order from those parts of a street where parking places have been designated in a separate order. Thus, there is no conflict "
What is unusual here is that it was very specific to my adjudication.
What is also very unusual is the fact that Sunderland City Council, despite the adjudicator's insistence against, submitted further evidence to the NPAS tribunal a couple of days after the hearing.
I objected to NPAS in the strongest possible terms but was told that the evidence had been forwarded to the adjudicator.
What is even more remarkable is the fact that the content of the 'extra evidence' bears a remarkable similarity to that posted above and shown in the link below.
The posting was made at 12.53pm can be seen here in context.
However, records show that my site had been visited by someone from Sunderland City Council some 37 minutes previously

Do you think we need the services of M. Clouseau to work out the connection?
