Dear Mr Curl
On 2nd February, a Hansard record shows a question was asked by Lord Kennedy of Southwark regarding parking meters.
The response he received from Earl Attlee was as follows:
The Department for Transport has carried out no research on solar-powered parking meters. This is primarily a matter for individual local authorities and the wider parking sector, though the department of course encourages innovations that save carbon. Any parking apparatus must comply with existing UK/European Standards.
Please would you kindly share any documentation you have with respect to Surrey County Council’s own research on solar-powered parking meters.
Please would you share your response with the readers of a new open and democratic forum set up by volunteers in Haslemere. You may do so by clicking on this link, Hansard. Q: What assessment, if any, has been made of using solar photovoltaics to power parking meters?
