One of the problems facing the Council is the leadership vacuum and hit to morale. How on earth can anyone take seriously the current leadership? Informed sources say getting Cllr Pascall to understand complex issues is far from easy. He really should make an effort seeing as Chez Pascall is benefitting from an RBK&C income of £60,000 a year.
It seems that Mr. Siddiqui, the Council’s Highways boss, allows NSL who run the parking enforcement contract to do just what they want.
Residents complain that wardens are often seen gossiping in little groups and ignoring abuse of resident parking spaces
NSL’s management has told wardens not to bother too much about any transgressor who won’t deliver revenue. In other words, NSL’s mission is to make as much money as they can.
Every NSL traffic warden(for that is what they are) wants to be posted to the area around Harrods.
Why? Well, it’s a bit like being a waiter or concierge: the ‘tips’ are good!
Residents report wardens blatantly allowing drivers to illegally park around Harrods turning a Nelsonian blind eye.
NSL Parking is owned by Marston Holdings who have an appalling reputation for ruthless debt collection.
