Biker Parking Challenge Fails

Posted: 4th May 2011

A motor cycle rider who challenged Westminster Council over parking charges for motor bikes and then pursued it all the way to the Court of Appeal has seen it rejected.
Warren Djanogly claimed that the introduction of roadside parking charges by the Council, by an order made in 2010, was invalid.
Unfortunately for him, the Court ruled that the achievement by the Council of a traffic management benefit through the introduction of the parking charge was sufficient to make the order legitimate.
