You thought commercial vehicles needed to apply for parking suspension notices?
RBK&C's parking team who work from Hammersmith & Fulham Council's offices has changed the rules (yes, very strange that this has been outsourced)
Now, if you are a removals firm, you will not be penalised if you decide not to bother with the fuss of obtaining and paying for a suspension permit.
One resident reported an incident of two vast Hedley Humper removal vehicles not just occupying 5 resident bays but parking alongside each other narrowing the road width and causing serious congestion.

During the entire day, not one CEO bothered to investigate the matter.
Why would they?
After all, far more lucrative for CEO's to wander around ticketing overstays causing no congestion but adding huge revenues to council coffers!
When the resident reported the matter, Team Leader, Mr Nick Day weakly justified things by saying, “We do try to encourage removal vans to book suspensions prior to any removal work”
Mr. Day, your job is not to somewhat sweetly ‘encourage’; your job is to enforce the rules as they apply to every commercial operator.
Your sweet encouragement will quickly be interpreted by every company as, “ we can get away with it”
