West Norfolk council's record car park haul revealed
West Norfolk Council made more money from parking last year than ever before, according to government figures.
Parking services in the borough raised £3.1 million in profit in 2018-19, according to Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government data – the highest figure recorded since comparable records began in 2008-9.
But, despite criticism from motoring organisation, the authority has defended its record, insisting that the funds are used to provide local services and help to keep council tax bills down.
