Brighton and Hove Council Addicted To Fines

As loyal readers know, Nanny and her chums from our "beloved" local councils are addicted to issuing fines and charges over and above council taxes. The monies raised from these fines are used for paying Nanny's bills and for her pet projects, that invariably are hair brained or useless.

Step forward Brighton and Hove Green Council, which raked in £11.5M from car permit and penalty charges in 2013/14. According to The Argus the equivalent figure in 2012/13 was £10.9M.

More than £3.6M of last year’s parking kitty was raised through the issue of 117,772 penalty charge notices (PCNs). This is an increase from 114,332 in 2012/13.

The council claims that the money raised is pumped back into transport projects.

Are these projects for motorists?


The schemes include concessionary bus fares for the elderly, installing new cycle lanes and planting lots of new trees around roads leading into Brighton in a bid to welcome motorists. Seemingly the trees were meant to make the motorist feel better!

As I have noted before, councils are the enemies of the people!

  1. When the criminal justice system is used mainly as an extension to HMRC, both are brought into disrepute.

    When I was young, Brighton and Hove actually, were staunchly Conservative however, in recent years, it has become very leftie and green. It is my opinion that, any area which votes in a green council, deserves everything they get. It is the non leftie residents who I feel sorry for because they're subjected to looney progressive Marxist policies.....It will be interesting to see if the greens get re elected in Brighton and Hove actually next time.
