Introduction
 1.1. Basildon District Council enforce parking restrictions within the District both on-streetand within their own car parks. Using the powers under the Traffic Management Act2004 the enforcement of parking is no longer a criminal offence within the Districtand this has been the case since 1
st
April 2003 when the Council took over thesepowers from Essex Police.1.2. The transfer to the Traffic Management Act 2004 took place on the 31
st
March 2008when “Civil Parking Enforcement (CPE)” was introduced replacing the previousregime of “Decriminalised Parking Enforcement (DPE)” enforced under the RoadTraffic Act 1991.1.3. As the Enforcement Authority Basildon Council is totally responsible for theenforcement of their own car parks and the relative Traffic Regulation Order is drawnup and sealed by them. However, the Enforcement Authority for on-streetenforcement is Essex County Council and in this respect Basildon Council act astheir agents under the terms of a formal agreement between the two Councils.1.4. This report is to be written by the Enforcement Authority consequently will cover carpark enforcement only. Essex County Council is responsible for publishing the on-street parking enforcement report and we have supplied them with our performancestatistics for the year which will be amalgamated with the statistics received from theeleven other District and Borough councils who act as their agents in a similarmanner to Basildon.2.

It was decided by the Council’s Cabinet in February 2009 that, in response to therecession and to promote the local economy, the Council’s car park charges wouldbe suspended on Saturdays making all of our car parks free of charge on this dayevery week.4.2. Financial Provision for this was made by the Council for the loss of income to coverthe whole financial year April 2009 – March 2010 after which the decision will bereviewed.4.3.
