Comment - Notice the council are careful not to include the total number of PCN's Cancelled overall which was 2402 from 11734 PCN's issued which is over 20%. Remember the majority just pay up and don't challenge PCN's because they are probably too busy with their own families to pursue such matters.

Even so thats 1 in every 5 PCN's issued, are cancelled! These figures are a absolute disgrace and the public should be made fully aware that Neath and Port Talbot Council parking services are 'not fit for purpose' failing to improve the overall aim of the Authority to provide a Parking Service that supports residents, visitors and businesses within Neath Port Talbot.

But don't worry, because this authoritarian, cost cutting council proposes the introduction of a 'mobile CCTV camera van' costing thousands of tax-payers hard earned pounds with a 'particular focus' on dangerous parking (who makes that decision?) outside schools and in bus bays with obviously more drivers challenging the decision?
