Legal proceedings have been issued!

  • Legal Proccedings have been isued!
  • We await a crucial Court decision on whether our exposure to Barnet's legal costs will be capped.  

When Barnet Council responded to our letter of claim, they didn't raise anything new to alter our view that the new CPZ parking charges are unlawful.  Barnet Council did however threaten to hold David Attfield responsible for any loss of revenue if he asked the court to delay implementation of the increased charges whilst the court case is decided – so understandably he has not done so.

So on Monday 11th April a group of us went to the High Court with David to submit the papers. Now we have to wait to see if the court agrees that we have a case and for them to decide on our application to limit our liability for Barnet’s costs.

We still need to raise awareness – because Barnet are not sending out notices many people will have no idea this is happening until they receive their permit renewal. So think of anyone you know in the borough and call them – if you do it before Sunday 17th they could still get their permits and vouchers at the old price.  And ask them to get involved – we still need to  raise more money.
