Drivers who flouted on-street parking restrictions paid over £1million in the last year to Lincolnshire County Council.
The figures were from on-street parking restrictions in Lincolnshire from April 1 last year to March 31.
Lincolnshire County Council adopted civil parking enforcement from Lincolnshire Police in December 2012.
After costs – including £544,000 to APCOA Ltd – £156,000 surplus was generated to Lincolnshire County Council from the money raised from parking charge notices.
The £156,000 generated is funding changes to parking restrictions, such as in Westgate and the Marketplace in Grantham as well as ensuring other schemes throughout the county are correctly lined and signed.
The figures also show of the 33,258 parking charge notices issued there were 6,533 challenges of which 1,950 were reviewed. Of these 237 were down to the parking charge notice not being issued, and 183 were because they were unenforceable.
District councils and the City of Lincoln Council enforce their own off-street parking areas.
