Andrew Dismore Press release - New evidence on parking charges increases again points to Brian Coleman


Using the Freedom of information Act, Labour London Assembly candidate for Barnet and Camden Andrew Dismore has established Brian Coleman’s  further complicity  in jacking  up car parking charges.

Mr Dismore said:
“The new emails I have obtained under freedom of Information have revealed how Mr Coleman argued for higher increases than the officers were proposing, and as usual got his way.
The emails also show that the purpose behind much of the increase was actually to replace lost revenue from fewer bus lane enforcement  tickets.

Barnet’s car drivers had clearly had enough of Coleman’s bus lane tickets and were avoiding his cameras and fines- so he decided to screw the money out of them anyway, through parking charges increases instead! Coleman claimed to be a friend of the motorist but these emails reveal he is their worst nightmare: “never knowingly undercharged” Coleman’s policies have ripped off local motorists yet again”.
