We’ve received this message from one of our readers:
Hi , I’ve just had notification from Wirral Council Planning that Parking Eye the company that issues parking ‘fines’ for Aldi in Prenton have been operating illegally. Parking Eye have never applied for planning permission for the ANPR? Cameras and/or signage.
Therefore anyone who paid £40 for an overstay should request their money to be returned.
Wirral Council are granting Parking Eye retro planning but no mention of prosecution for illegal operations over the last ten years.
CLAIM YOUR ‘fine’ MONEY BACK NOW
ANPR = Automatic Number Plate recognition. If Parking Eye didn’t have planning permission for ANPR is that a Data Protection breach on the part of Wirral Council?
But then Wirral Council surely wouldn’t let someone operate without planning permission for 10 years would they ? Of course they would ! As we’ve previously reported on the illegal marquees at Thornton Manor , this would seem to be par for the course when it comes to the impotent and incompetent Planning Committee.
