Barnet Council forced to postpone CPZ increases
after we expose defect in legal notice
Yesterday we pointed out to Barnet Council that the legal notice they had published to implement the new CPZ charges was defective.
As a result, the Council have acknowledged that planned increases won't be brought into force on 21 March. Instead the Council have to readvertise the notice and then wait another three weeks (taking us to around 14 April).
Its a small victory of course - the real fight is still to come. But in the meantime, residents have a few more weeks to stock up on vouchers or can renew their permit at the old price if it expires on 1 May.
