Anti-so­cial park­ing

The Wokingham Paper - - NEWS -

ANTI-SO­CIAL park­ing in Earley was raised by res­i­dent An­drew Mick­le­burgh. He wanted to know if a full-time traf­fic war­den (known as a Civil En­force­ment Of­fi­cer or CPE) could be ap­pointed. Ex­ec­u­tive mem­ber for high­ways and trans­port, Cllr An­thony Pol­lock, said that since Oc­to­ber last year the CPEs had car­ried out 1,581 pa­trols in Earley and handed out 938 tick­ets.

“The cost of a full-time pa­troller is within the re­gion of £37,000 per an­num,” he added.
