£30m council parking income queried by RAC Foundation

Welsh councils made a profit of almost £9m on car parking last year, according to new research.

The RAC Foundation says accounts show a total of £30m was raised by the 22 local authorities through parking schemes - charges, resident permits and fines - of which £8.7m was profit.

It said the aim should be managing congestion not raising cash.

A Welsh Local Government Association spokesman denied profiteering and said millions more were spent on roads.

Matt Murray reports.
