Third of parking fines not collected
Published 28/04/14



MORE than a third of penalty tickets issued at a Henley car park since February last year have not been paid.

Henley Town Council says it is still owed £2,740 in excess charges from its pay and display car park at Mill Meadows.

Motorists must buy a ticket to park between 9am and 7pm on any day of the week except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

This costs between £1.30 and £7 during the week, £1.50 to £8 at weekends and up to £15 during Henley Royal Regatta.

Those caught without a ticket are fined up to £70 with a 50 per cent discount for early payment.


According to a report prepared for the council’s Mill Meadows sub-committee, 187 fines have been issued since the start of 2013. Of these, 109 have been settled, earning the council £3,750.

Twelve have been cancelled but the remaining 66, which account for 35 per cent of all excess charges, are still due.

Most date back to August last year, when 36 motorists were fined. Nineteen paid and two had their tickets cancelled but 15 tickets worth £805 in total remain outstanding.

Council staff write down the registration number of every vehicle they fine. If drivers do not pay up the council passes their details to an enforcement firm called Vinci, which traces them through the DVLA and sends further demands.

Town clerk Mike Kennedy said that only about 30 per cent of fines used to be paid before the council first employed Vinci.
