This Is Local London reports that a Conservative councillor and GLA member Brian Coleman is under investigation for allegedly misusing his councillor’s parking permit to avoid off-street parking fees on Sunday.
The badges are handed to Conservative politicians on Barnet Council for use on authority business only. Coleman allegedly used his badge whilst he accompanied Boris Johnson on a visit to Golders Green
This allegation, if true, is rather ironic given that, apart from being one of the highest paid councillors in Britain, Coleman was the one who introduced the charges in the first place.
Coleman denies the charge.
