Parking penalty notices handed out to people who were volunteering their time to clean up Penzance at a big litter pick have had them cancelled.

Cornwall Council says that following concerns over the issuing of penalty notices to a small number of people who were taking part in the litter pick in Penzance on Sunday, the Council has confirmed that it will be withdrawing all the penalty notices issued in the Wherry Town car park on that day.

Bert Biscoe, the council’s cabinet member for transport and waste, said “Unfortunately the parking officer didn’t know that some people were using the car park on that day to do a litter pick and so issued the penalty notices. I’m sorry that this has occurred.  We have withdrawn the penalty notices.

“The Council is keen to support community events such as this.  It is essential though for organisers to let us know beforehand. Then we can avoid things like this occurring in the future”.
