The General Election has forced Redbridge Council to delay the publication of the results of its parking consultation.

"We had intended to publish the results this month, but because of the unexpected announcement of the General Election we are in a period which places certain reporting restrictions on us. During the time between the notice of an election and the election itself, local authorities should not publish any publicity on controversial issues. The Wanstead parking consultation has generated a wide range of differing opinions, so we will not be publishing the results or any decision until after the General Election," said a spokesperson.
