Council van had “special dispensation” to park on double yellow lines

First published in News

A BOURNEMOUTH council van being used by environmental health officers was given special dispensation to park on double yellow lines, the council has confirmed.

An indignant Echo reader sent in this picture of a council van breaching parking restrictions in Nortoft Road, Charminster.

But Margaret Leslie, parking operations manager, said the van had permission to be there. She said: “Environmental health approached us to discuss their need to park as close to the premises they were working in as possible due to the use of chemicals as part of their work.

“In view of this fact we were happy to give dispensation on this occasion for the vehicle to be parked on the roadside.”

The yellow lines are either there for sound reasons or their not. If it is safe for environmental health to park their then why would it not be safe for a private plumber for example?

So to sum up, the Council believes it can decide for itself to be above the rules everyone else has to abide by.

Perhaps we should ask how far a Local Authorities self discretionary immunity from normal UK law & order extends?

Lame excuse from the council, surely the danger to other road users parking on those yellow lines outweigh moving some 'dangerous' chemicals. and if they are that dangerous why are they being carried around in broad daylight on a busy road and pavement.

why are yellow lines there? is it because its a dangerous place to park? if so, then the police should be there with their tape and cones and road closed signs and blue flashers and sirens x 10. if safety isnt the reason for yellow lines,, why are the lines there?

Also take a look at Dorset biggest landlords vans they have notices which say they are on emergency call outs when they clearly are not.All they have is the company name and no endorsement or authority from Bournemouth council.

You have conveniently missed the point. This has nothing to do with parking or yellow lines but our local council - whose wages are paid by you and me - doing what they want with impunity when the rest of us are castigated for doing the same thing by our own employees.

Regardless of whether the van had a permit or not, whatever dangerous chemicals it was carrying etc. this is another example of our local council's hardest-working department at work.

You know the department I mean, they're based at the very top of the Town Hall.

It's the "Make It Up As We Go Along To Suit Us" Department.

Set up around 2005, it consists of a "management" panel of "experienced" executives. They deal with all the important issues like local parking restrictions as well as local school admissions, parking meters, removal of rubbish and dustbin collection and whatever else they decide at their morning meeting falls within their remit.

The morning meetings go like this:

1 - Discuss agenda
2 - Laugh at problems
3 - Decide on what action to take dependent on cheapest option, value of backhander's available if any and then how quick it can be sorted.
4 - Laugh at how well they've done their "job"
5 - Read the Echo
6 - Close meeting.

I have it on good authority that next weeks issues to be sorted include further parking problems, what they are going to do with the Imax space for Easter and the content of next year's Xmas TV Ad. Plus how to cover up more internal laptop and internet abuse.
All these things ARE important you know.

By the way - it is we who pay for this outstanding service.

From the way this picture is taken the van must be right on the end of the road on the yellow lines. So cars wanting to pass it have to cross onto the wrong side of the road where cars turning into the road might hit them. Least they could do was park further along the road not on the corner.

Yes but the whole point of displaying a valid dispensation permit,apart from a legal obligation to display like a parking ticket,is to make a traffic warden/police officer aware of the dispensation.How else would they know?
