Statement on CPZ legal challenge

Published Friday 2 August 2013

From the Leader of Barnet Council, Councillor Richard Cornelius: “After taking legal advice, we have decided not to appeal against the court`s judgement that the charges for CPZ were increased without going through the proper process.

"I am sorry that this was done in the way that it was.  The Court has ruled that the increase was wrongly implemented and so we will go back to the old charges.  Any change to these will have to go through the proper process.”

Residents who made payments at the increased rates for their annual charges and/or for visitor vouchers will be refunded the difference in charge and should fill out an e-form on Barnet Council’s website, providing details of their name, telephone number, address, permit ID if they have it and car registration number. 

Alternatively they can email the council at CPZParkingRefunds@barnet.gov.uk or write to; Parking Team, CPZ Parking Refunds, London Borough of Barnet, Building 4, North London Business Park, Oakleigh Road South, London N11 1NP

Residents are requested to apply for refunds by email or in writing, rather than telephoning the Council, to ensure this can be done quickly. We will aim to get the process completed in eight weeks.
