Mr Alan Eastwood is the main Protagonist in denying anyone with a claim for restitution of a Penalty charge paid since September 2000 up to and including August 2nd 2006, all of Bolton Councils parking tickets were illegal between those dates.
Printed here is a recent Freedom of Information request from a friend to Bolton Council on these illegal parking tickets.
Request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000
In response to your request for information received at this office on 10 December 2007, Bolton Council is happy to supply the following information. I regret that we were not able to provide this information within the statutory deadline which was 10 January 2008; thank you for your patience in this matter.
You requested the following:
003.1 a The Number of Penalty Charge Notices issued between: the 3rd August 2006 and the 22nd August 2006 inclusive.
Answer: 2182 parking tickets.
003.1 b The number paid and their total value
Answer: 1,342 totalling £41,170
003.1 c The number that went to Bailiff stage
Answer: 0 PCN’s went to Bailiff stage.
What happened to the other 840 parking tickets valued at £25,762
Bolton Council knew those 2182 parking tickets to be illegally issued as a result of a high court ruling which every council operating Decriminalised Parking Enforcement were awaiting the outcome of, this case law now known as Barnet v Moses deemed that all parking tickets with only one date were non compliant, Bolton Council are Corrupt and are made corrupt by a very small minority of the people who run the the council, Bolton Council Legal Dept knew the tickets were not compliant yet fraudulently obtained £41,170 in 20 days from illegally issued Parking Tickets. Mr Alan Eastwood and Mr Sean Harriss the Chief Executive are refusing to give that money back to the people they took it off despite the fact that it was illegally derived income, this is known as unjust enrichment and the council must pay it back now.
Now you can see just who are the culprits for not giving back more than £6.5 million every penny of this taken illegally since September 2006, to 22nd August 2006.
If you paid for a parking fine between September 2006, to 22nd August 2006 then you are legally entitled to your money back.
