Harrogate Mayor’s car given parking ticket

Late yesterday morning (24 October 2015)  the Mayors car was illegally parked in the loading bay outside Superdrug on Cambridge Road in Harrogate.

This attracted the attention of a local Traffic officer. He apparently used his radio before issuing a parking ticket.



Councillor Nigel Simms formerly received the Mayoral Chains of Office in May 2015, but does not drive the vehicle himself. The mayor always has a driver.

Harrogate Borough Council employ the traffic wardens on behalf of North Yorkshire County Council as Highways Authority.

We are awaiting comment from Harrogate Borough Council.
