DRIVERS appealing against parking and other traffic penalties in London are soon to have their cases decided at a new centre aimed at cutting the waiting time.

All appeals against fines for parking, bus lane infringements or the Central London Congestion charge toll are being heard at the new appeals centre at the Angel in Islington from February 2.

The new centre in Angel Square has 13 hearing rooms, more than double the number at the present centre at New Zealand House in The Haymarket.

This is hoped will reduce the time motorists wait to have their appeals heard.

Around 18,000 of the 59,000 parking appeals heard by the adjudicators in 2007-08 were personal appeals.

A team of 80 adjudicators and 11 support staff currently work in The Haymarket, hearing appeals for parking in the wrong place, driving in bus lanes during restricted hours, getting caught by speed cameras, dodging the London Lorry Control scheme and the £8 daily Congestion toll.
