Schedule II
Permit holders parking places, other vehicles limited to 4 hours (return prohibited within 2 hours), Mondays to Fridays, 9.00 am to 5.00 pm

I have asked a [email protected] warden how could this regulation be enforced and he admitted that it was virtually impossible with permitted resources.
It requires a warden to patrol at 9 am or soon after and note down all the registration numbers of vehicles in the bays, then to return 2 hours later to repeat the operation, and then to return a further 2 hours later to issue tickets on any identified vehicles that have not moved since the first visit.
The reality is that the issuing £30 of fines does not achieve enforcement in the short term but merely highlights the lack of enforcement (speed cameras have the same shortcoming).
The likely consequence is that all-day parkers will simply arrange to swap bays at lunch-time – quite ridiculous.
