Title
Civil Parking Enforcement - Annual Report 2008/09
1 Purpose of the Report
1.1 To seek approval for the Civil Parking Enforcement Annual Report 2008/09.
2 Recommendations
2.1 The Cabinet Member (City Services) is requested to approve the 2008/9 Civil ParkingEnforcement Annual Report to the Department for Transport which is included as appendix1 to this Cabinet Member report.
3 Information/Background
3.1 Coventry City Council became a Decriminalised Parking Enforcement (DPE) Authority inApril 2005 under legislation contained in the Road Traffic Act 1991. At the commencementof DPE the responsibility for on-street parking enforcement transferred to the City Councilfrom West Midlands Police.3.2 In 2008, the relevant parts of the Road Traffic Act 1991 were replaced by Part 6 of theTraffic Management Act 2004, which introduced new arrangements for 'Civil ParkingEnforcement' (CPE). In support of the introduction of CPE, the Department for Transportissued statutory and operational guidance setting out how parking enforcement authoritiesare expected to apply CPE.3.3 The Department for Transport guidance includes a requirement for parking enforcementauthorities to issue an annual report detailing certain financial, statistical and otherinformation relating to parking enforcement performance. The information is required to beplaced in the public domain to ensure transparency and accountability.3.4 The transparency given by regular and consistent reporting should help the public betterunderstand and accept CPE. Monitoring also provides the Council with managementinformation to evaluate performance and help to identify where it needs to improve its CPEregime. It also provides a framework through which performance can be benchmarked withother authorities.
 
4 Proposal and Other Option(s) to be Considered
4.1 This is the first annual report to be produced by Coventry City Council. Following CabinetMember approval, it is proposed to submit the report to the Secretary of State for Transportand other key stakeholders, such as the Police. Copies will also be made available via theCouncil's website and at local libraries. Thereafter, it is proposed to produce and makeavailable a report on an annual basis.4.2 The production of an annual report is a requirement of both the Operational and StatutoryGuidance set out by the Department for Transport, therefore, not producing an annualreport is not a viable option.

6 Crime and Disorder
6.1 The civil enforcement of on-street parking restrictions encourage motorists not to break thelaw by parking illegally. It also reduces Police resources needed to deal with theseoffences, thereby enabling the Police to devote greater attention to tackling higher levelcrime and disorder.
7 Financial Information
7.1 Under Section 55 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, as amended by the TrafficManagement Act 2004, parking enforcement authorities are required to keep an account ofall on-street parking income and expenditure in relation to their functions as anenforcement authority. An accurate financial summary of on-street parking income andexpenditure for the previous financial year is contained within the 2008/09 Annual Report.
8 Legal Implications
8.1 Section 55 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 (as amended) requires eachenforcement authority to maintain a separate parking account. In addition, DfT guidanceissued under the Traffic Management Act 2004 requires each authority to prepare andpublish an annual civil parking enforcement report which must include financial informationfrom the parking account.
9 Impact on Partner Organisations
9.1 The civil enforcement of on-street parking restrictions frees up Police time, therebyenabling them to devote more resources to other targeted priorities. It also has a positiveimpact on other key stakeholder such as public transport operators by deterring andreducing illegal parking at bus stops, thereby contributing towards public transportaccessibility and reliability.
10 Monitoring
10.1 Progress on achieving the aims and objectives set out in an annual report will be monitoredon a regular basis and reported to the Cabinet Member where appropriate. Performancelevels against the aims and objectives will be included in the annual reporting process.
11 Timescale and expected outcomes
11.1 Subject to approval, the annual report for 2008/09 will be published by the end of January2010.11.2 It is expected that annual reports for subsequent years will be produced in September ofeach year. Therefore an annual report for 2009/10 will be produced in September 2010.
