Officer Decisions

Chief Officer for Highways, Infrastructure Development and Waste - Meg Booth

Summary of Matter or Issue Requiring Decision:

To provide a managed parking enforcement service to Cullompton Town Council in respect of their off street car park on St Andrews Road under Agency Agreement.

Decision Taken:

To provide a managed parking enforcement service to Cullompton Town Council in respect of their off street car park on St Andrews Road under Agency Agreement.

Summary of Reason(s) for Decision Taken:

A mutually beneficial Agency Agreement has been drawn up between the Authorities, with support from the Devon County Council Legal team.

A traffic Order funded by the Town Council has been advertised. Only one objection was received, this was dealt with under the constitution of the Town Council. The proposal has the support of Local County Councillor and HATOC Chair.

All monies in relation to Penalty Charge Notices and 20% of all parking income from the site will be provided to the Authority in consideration of the services provided.

Enforcement will be provided when officers are already in the community attending to on-street matters, and processing of any appeals will be accommodated within existing team capacity.

The arrangement is deemed to be financially beneficial to our Authority and makes good commitments to assist other Authorities made as the Civil Parking Enforcement Service was bought inhouse.

It is RECOMMENDED that the decision is made to take on enforcement of Cullompton Town Councils off street car park under Agency Agreement.

Summary of Alternatives or Options considered and rejected:

The decision to offer support in managing any parking area operated by another Authority is at the discretion of Devon County Council.

Negotiation has been conducted to achieve an arrangement beneficial to both Authorities and mirroring an existing relationship with another Town Council.

Whilst deemed beneficial, an alternative remains to not to proceed nor offer this support.

Details of any conflict of interest and dispensation granted to the Officer taking the decision or by any Member of the Council in delegating responsibility for any specific express delegation:

None
