Following a minimum of 10,000 signatories the government is obliged to reply. Here it is

 

___________________________________

Dear Tony P,

 

The Government has responded to the petition you signed – "Stop private parking companies charging disproportionate penalties in car parks".

 

Government responded:

 

 

Government recognises the importance of achieving greater fairness for the motorist, which is why we have taken several legislative actions in recent years and are actively considering further changes

 

 

Government has already implemented a number of changes which have achieved greater fairness for motorists at the local authority level, including restrictions on the use of CCTV and the introduction of a 10 minute grace period for parking. However, we are aware that concerns about the private sector remain among many individuals and organisations. For this reason, we launched a discussion paper last year entitled 'Parking reform: tackling unfair practices', which sought thoughts and comments on the private parking sector. A wide range of issues were raised, including the level of fines charged by private parking companies and the lack of an independent regulator for the private parking industry.

 

The Government is considering these issues alongside others raised in response to the discussion paper, and will issue a response in due course.

 

Department for Communities and Local Government

The Petitions Committee will take a look at this petition and its response. They can press the government for action and gather evidence. If this petition reaches 100,000 signatures, the Committee will consider it for a debate.

 

The Committee is made up of 11 MPs, from political parties in government and in opposition. It is entirely independent of the Government. Find out more about the Committee: https://petition.parliament.uk/help#petitions-committee

Sadly, it will not be debated until 100,000 signatures are received..

 

If this petition reaches 100,000 signatures, the Committee will consider it for a debate.
