Few Councils Seem To Want Follow Nottingham With Workplace Parking Charges

Hi, Graham Hill here, thank you so much for visiting my blog, I hope you learn a lot and as a result end up driving a great car. In order to do so you can get all the information you need by buying my book, An Insider Guide To Car Finance or use me to finance your next car. Happy driving.

After allowing local councils to levy workplace parking charges it seems that few are actually taking up the opportunity. Nottingham was the first to make a move and it was thought that all local authorities would follow suit but after seeing the reaction of local large employers, who announced they would move their offices rather than pay the parking levy, other councils have viewed the opportunity far more cautiously. Whilst the Daily Telegraph reported that 8 councils were actively pursuing the opportunity to raise funds, Fleet News has found that only two of those mentioned are actively looking into it, Wiltshire and Bristol, so it seems a bit of a damp squib. Unless all councils subscribe to the levy I can’t see it working, you will simply see a migration of businesses from areas that introduce the charging to an area that doesn’t. Do you think that workplace parking charges is a good way to stop people driving to work? By Graham Hill
