Hepworth-V-Westminster City Council, PATAS Rulling

Dear Mr Large
I write to you to draw your attention to the recent ruling at PATAS, case ref: 2110348237(please see link below).

I and the NoToMob request that in light of this ruling by the adjudicator, your council should write to every individual who has been issued a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) via fixed CCTV for parking since February 2010, inviting them to apply for a refund. This would appear to be the fair and proportionate thing to do.
If Westminster City Council does not undertake this course of action, the District Auditor will be asked to apply to the court under section 17 of the Audit commission Act 1998 for a declaration that the income from these PCNs is illegally derived. I would also like to know how many PCNs for parking have been issued via fixed CCTV since February 2010.
We also ask that your council suspend the use of your fixed CCTV cameras for parking enforcement until such time as Westminster City Council has obtained an approved device certificate for your fixed CCTV cameras.
Yours sincerely
Steve Baker
