The following item contains exempt information as defined in paragraphs 1 and 2 of Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended).

270 (136) DECRIMINALISATION OF ON-STREET PARKING ENFORCEMENT PROPOSED STAFFING STRUCTURE – The Service Director Highways and Planning submitted a report seeking approval for proposed changes to the Parking Services Team staffing structure, in preparation for decriminalisation.

In July 2006, the then Cabinet considered a report (minute 580 refers) giving approval for proposals for the decriminalisation of parking enforcement for North Lincolnshire to be progressed. The effect of decriminalisation would be to make the council responsible for enforcement of parking both on and off street, whereas at present the council only enforced in it’s off street pay and display and pay on foot car parks. Under the proposals, the council would take over on street enforcement from Humberside Police. At the current time, enforcement remained a police responsibility.

Subsequent to this, it had been decided that an in-house team would manage decriminalised enforcement. In order to achieve the introduction of decriminalisation by the autumn of 2009, it was necessary to establish the management structure as soon as practicable.

Full details of the proposed structure were set out in the report and accompanying appendices.

Resolved – That the proposed staffing structure, as set out in the report and accompanying appendices, be approved.
