UKPC changes need to be made !
0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!
We would like this unlawful conduct discussed and petition presented at the next Full Council Meeting together with an internal review into the apparent failures of Planning Officers to have been aware of the breach of the advertisement regulations before it being raised by the public and their subsequent failure to take action. COPELAND BOROUGH COUNCIL has an obligation to act in the interests of the residents of the Borough and ensure that our enforcement/planning officers maintain their duties to the highest standards. There is an appearance of failure in the case of UKPC and WCH. West Cumberland Hospitals visitors, patients and staff are suffering financial hardship.
Let us be clear the parking enforcement operation is based on criminal conduct as confirmed by the Borough Council.
Evidence now suggests that this is a growing trend throughout our Borough with these companies riding roughshod over the planning law and ‘we’ the people.
It is a criminal offence to erect the kind of signs used by UKPC without firstly securing advertisement consent by virtue of Regulation 30 of the Town and Country Planning (Control of Advertisements) (England) Regulations 2007 (the 2007 Regulations).
The Council has the power to cover the signs until advertisement consent has been granted. It must act now that too many parking operators in the Town are breaking the law.
IT’S TIME (Copeland Borough Council) put the Constituents of Copeland and Allerdale FIRST by prosecuting those responsible for these crimes in the Magistrates’ Court under section 224 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990. I request that this petition is voted upon, in a recorded vote, by all 51 councillors at the next Full Council Meeting of Copeland Borough Council.
I ask the residents of Copeland to get behind this PETITION
UKPC has a reputation for sharp practices in undertaking parking enforcement such as doctoring photographs of cars to suggest that they have been parked longer than they have been.
It is wholly wrong of UKPC/WCH, when they are committing a criminal offence, to pursue motorists. Such double standards are unbefitting of a public body bound by NOLAN principles of Honesty
My Uncle Matt Dalton fought for this justice and I will continue to do it as I know he would have been at the forefront of this campaign.
ask the residents of Copeland to get behind this PETITION and seek justice for all concerned.
