29 January - Phone parking scrapped?

No, but you might think so if you kept an eye on what Bexley council is spending our money on. The most recently available over £500 expenditure list (November 2011) shows nearly £3,500 was paid to a company called Recresco Ltd. in respect of “Cashless Parking”. Recresco specialises in refuse disposal and recycling. Possibly all the phone parking notices are going for scrap but more likely it is an error. As stated yesterday the list is barely worth looking at.

Nearly £102,000 was paid to the City of London. Not for any tangible service but for “Miscellaneous Services”. Very informative I am sure. Probably not what Eric Pickles had in mind when he asked councils to be more transparent over their expenditure.
