Gloucestershire County Council is in the middle of a parking war with a Lamborghini driver who insists on parking in the mayor’s space.

The 22-year-old fashion company boss Ash White has received six tickets from the council for parking his sports car in a space outside Cheltenham Town Hall labelled ‘Mayor’s Car’.

He has paid some of them but has contested others under the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002 legislation.

However, the council argued this is outdated and refers to the most up-to-date legislation published in 2016 to justify issuing Mr White with parking tickets.

‘The council is continuing to enforce on street parking in Cheltenham and across the county,’ said Nigel Riglar, director of communities and infrastructure at the county council.

‘The restrictions are intended to make parking easier for residents and visitors alike; residents have the option to lodge an appeal on any ticket issued and, if they are still unhappy, can pursue the matter with the Traffic Penalty Tribunal.’
