FOI Request - Parking Meters Over Vend - Amount
1 a) How much money the council received in “over-vend” from parking meters in the 2010/11, 2011/12 and 2012/13 financial years.
b) Please break these figures down by year, so that it is possible to see how much income was received in each financial year.
I define “over-vend” as additional revenue on top of the stated charge received from parking meters that do not give change. For instance, if a charge for parking a car in a car park was £2.80, but the customer paid £3.00 because they did not have exact change and the meter did not give change, then the over-vend would be 20p.
