From £1.478m collected in 2009-10 the council ‘profits’ have dipped to £851,000
in 2012-13 ranking Wirral 157th of England’s 353 local authorities in terms of surplus.

A Total of all Councils maked £594m from parking

LOCAL authorities across the UK continue to make a financial killing from parking charges.

In 2012-13 councils generated a combined ‘profit’ of £594m from their day to day, on and off street parking operations - a 5% increase on the 2011-12 figure of £565m.
Over the past four years, Wirral Council has seen a steady drop in the amount raised from parking charges and penalties.
From £1.478m collected in 2009-10 the council ‘profits’ have dipped to £851,000 in 2012-13 ranking Wirral 157th of England’s 353 local authorities in terms of surplus.
Overall, councils collect around £1.4bn from parking tickets, permits and penalties. They spend around £0.8bn and make a surplus of £0.6bn according to a report commissioned by the RAC Foundation.

Oh dear ,how disapointing for them !!
Maybe they could put some of the profit towards storage for 22miles of brown bins, due to be collected.
Are there any business men on our Wirral Council ?

Guess their 'lets increase parking charges so people will pay more' policy didn't quite work.

How much do they rake in for parking on yellow lines? etc when we can't find a parking space, due to so many W.B.C. pay car park's,were dammed if we do and were dammed if we don't.
