Whistleblowers coming forward incensed at the behaviour of their own council

If you feel the need ... drop us a line at in the strictest confidence.

Thanks for all those who have already contacted us regarding their concerns that their council employers are not only not ready for the implementation of the new Traffic Management Act on 31st March but are experiencing software and staffing problems associated with running two parallel systems.

You should also be aware of the following Public Concern at Work website if you have serious concerns about unlawful or unethical activity.

Keep the information coming.

The Sauvain Committee is working very hard to ensure that all new paperwork is compliant but it seems that they too are struggling ... " Draft documents have been mocked up using the language of the draft regulations and, as a result, unacceptably lengthy and incomprehensible documents have emerged."

We are currently working on a number of TV documentary projects which are set to begin exposing what is now descending into absolute lawlessness. Just wait until parking attendants (soon to be Civil Enforcement Officers) start issuing tickets by post.

Nice to see that some local authority parking service departments use this website as their 'window on the parking appeals world.' Perhaps you should have paid more attention to the legislation at the time of implementation of Decriminalised Parking Enforcement instead of relying on 'advice and guidance.' Again, according to the Sauvain Committee ... "There has been a history of poor parking documentation on the part of some local authorities giving rise to critical decisions from adjudicators and findings that the deficiencies have rendered the Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) unenforceable."

Whoever was responsible for producing the DfT 1/95 Guidance on DPE could well have cost many a local authority a pretty penny ... and don't forget a mistake in law is recoverable 'ab initio.'
