As the City of York Council (CYC) confirmed that they had not published their Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs) on their website in breach of legislation I submitted a Freedom of Information request.
“Under the FOI Act I have requested for each of the past six years:
- How many Fixed Penalty Notices in relation to Public Spaces Protection Orders have the CYC issued in each year?
- How much revenue for Fixed Penalty Notices in relation to Public Spaces Protection Orders have the CYC received in each year?”
On Friday CYC responded to my FOI request.
As the Fixed Penalty Notices should not have been issued the CYC must now reimburse the monies received in 2017 and 2019.
With regards to the 2018 case, CYC must ensure that any monies paid are reimbursed and the conviction is quashed.
