No reminder notices in York car parks
We said on Saturday that the York Council had to ensure that all old style Minster Badge owners were reminded that their stickers were invalid from today (1st September 2014).
After the fiasco of the poor signage on Lendal bridge, we expected that the Council would have gone to extreme lengths to ensure that notices were posted in car parks reminding drivers that only Labour’s £20 new style badge would entitle users to a discount ( and free evening parking).
However, it appears that the advice has gone unheeded as there were NO warning signs displayed in York’s most popular car park (Castle) this morning.
Those seeking to pay charges using the mobile phone and text services likewise receive no reminder of the change.
How many residents have received penalty notices may become clear in a few days time.
However it is likely that the parking adjudicator may once again be faced with a large volume of complaints from York – possibly leading to the introduction of a costly refund process.
