Scarborough disc zone parking 

The County Council is to apply for a review of a decision by the Traffic Penalty Tribunal to allow an appeal against penalty charge notices issued under the Scarborough disc zone parking scheme. On 7 December 2016, the Tribunal allowed an appeal against five penalty charge notices relating to the scheme. Following this adjudication, the County Council maintains the view that the scheme complies with the relevant legislation. The County Council, jointly with Scarborough Borough Council, intends to make further representations to the adjudicator and to apply for a review of the decision.
