Greens attack parking zones

London's parking problems are to be aired in the Court of Appeal. An appeal is pending in which an action group from Newham is challenging the rights of Newham Borough Council to introduce controlled parking zones in the area. The Green Street Action Group is appealing against a High Court ruling by Mr Justice Owen. He found that while the council had failed to consult fully over the plan, the interests of the action group protesters had nevertheless not been substantially prejudiced.
