AN APPLICATION has been submitted by Britannia Parking to keep vehicle recognition technology at a controversial car park in New Milton.
As reported in the A&T, there has been a string of complaints since the parking limit was restricted to just 20 free minutes.
Several people have won challenges in court against fines, with some shopkeepers angry at the lack of time for customers.
The camera has been in place since November 2017 but is now subject to a retrospective planning application for the site, which is within a conservation area.
Documents lodged with NFDC on behalf of Britannia said the equipment on the 2.9-metre high pole had “minimal overall impact” on the character of the neighbourhood.
A decision is scheduled by 11th February after the deadline for public comments on 7th February.
