Statement from Cllr Shaheen on parking enforcement across the borough

Councillor Salman Shaheen, Cabinet Member for Recreation, Public Spaces and Parking
“The parking enforcement contract, which includes all parking enforcement activities between the Council and Serco, will be terminated at the end of November subject to the appointment of a new parking enforcement provider.
"Hounslow Council's Cabinet meets next week to discuss putting in place a procedure to swiftly find a provider to fulfil the remainder of the contract with Serco. The proposed solution, subject to Cabinet approval, would mean replacing Serco without having to go out to tender so as to avoid any disruption to services. However, once the current contract period expires next year, we will consider all available options and providers, including taking the service in-house.
“We would like to reassure our residents and businesses that there will be no disruption to services. In the event of a new provider not being appointed, we will continue with the current contract with Serco until the contract ends in 2024.”
