Three top Medway councillors have been caught parking in spaces reserved for disabled drivers.

Their cars were photographed at the council’s Gun Wharf headquarters in the clearly-marked disabled section.

The trio of Conservative councillors were:

Cllr Alan Jarrett, the council’s finance chief and deputy leader who has extracted £200,000 in parking penalties from Medway’s drivers over the past 12 months.

Cllr Reh Chishti, pictured, the council’s community safety and enforcement chief.

Cllr Tom Mason, the man responsible for protecting Medway’s disabled adults.

The photographs of the cars was taken last Monday night by Labour’s Cllr Glyn Griffiths. All three were parked outside the council entrance at the offices in Dock Road, Chatham, in spaces marked in yellow for disabled drivers.

Cllr Jarrett has ordered a clampdown on litter louts after admitting parking offenders seemed to have learned their lesson.

Cllr Chishti, also Conservative candidate for the Gillingham and Rainham parliamentary seat, said: “It was late, it was in exceptional circumstances and it was the first time I had parked there.”

Cllr Jarrett said: “It’s typical of Labour to focus on something like this. There was a Conservative group meeting and the council offices were closed.”

Cllr Mason pointed out it was raining and the offices were closed.

“Ordinarily, I wouldn’t park in those spaces, but when the offices are closed it’s OK.”

Cllr Griffiths said: “It is so arrogant to say it is all right when no one is about. Does that mean it’s OK to park on double yellow lines at night or to jump a red light at 3am?

“These are the very people who lecture the public on their responsibilities and who buy the Smart cars with CCTV cameras to enforce it.”

Cllr Maureen Ruparel (Lib), who has a disabled husband, said: “The administration bought Gun Wharf with insufficient parking spaces for staff, public and councillors. The public are made to feel they aren’t wanted in Fortress Gun Wharf.”

Surely they are not restricted bays especially if marked in yellow so they or anyone else can park in them?

As a local councillor/MP/JP it is a duty to lead by example, but this parking is just the same as the massive exspenses eminating from the Scout Hut alogside the Thames.

All lame excuses for arrogance beyond compare.

Nothing new from Westminster or local clown Halls.

Use your vote and get shut of these comedians, and dispatch them to the dustbin of time.

Lead by example? The bays are advisory anyone can park in them there is no example to set the offices they serve where shut. Would you complain if Tesco staff used the disabled bays in their car park if the store was shut and they had no disabled staff?

More to the point. Parking services would not accept this as a good reason to cancel the pcn. However the councillors can use the excuse. Double standards.

Tescos would not send somebody out on the street to ticket you. However if anybody else parks there be it day or night without a valid blue badge then they get ticketed by the councils cctv which is anpr compliant. !!!!!!!!!!

So you are now saying the Council are giving PCNs to vehicles in illegally marked bays using illegal cctv equipment?

I was actually being sarcastic as it is not possible to issue a PCN using ANPR and I very much doubt the Civic centre car park has an off street parking order or that PCNs even get issued in the car park at any time of the day.

Thought i would update you . One of the councillors mr chisti ended up in stocks. This was for a fete at a school. People had the pleasure of pelting him with wet sponges for 50p for 3 shots.

It has also been reported in several local papers that the CCTV Smart Car that Medway Council uses is regularly parked illegally (Double Yellow and Zig Zags ouside of schools) specifically to catch offenders.

If the property was "private" prooperty then it is the same as if you park in a disabled bay in a supermarket as the ticket is meaningless. I do not support it, but if CAG members can appeal , so can they regardless of status.

'Illegally'?? Which law is it contravening? Parking is decriminalised and parking is controlled by the Council who can issue waivers and dispensations for anyone to park so it is unlikely the vehicle is parked 'illegally'.
