Fewer than half the drivers who were illegally overcharged for their parking permits have received refund

January 23, 2014 5:47 PM

Fewer than half of the drivers who were illegally overcharged for their parking permits have received a refund from Barnet Council.

The authority was ordered to pay money back to thousands of motorists in August after it was found to have unlawfully increased prices of residents' and visitors' permits by a High Court judge.

But of the projected £2.25million owed to thousands of the borough's residents, just £903,000 has so far been repaid to 16,214 people.

The information came to light through a question posed by Liberal Democart Councillor Jack Cohen at this week's full council meeting.
