You, like me and my millions of readers are fairly intelligent, we all have GCSE’s and all sorts. So help me out here. I’ve been looking at the new workplace parking schemes, that come into force from April 2012, and trying to get my head around them. With companies unable to simply up stakes and move to another county that doesn’t have such a scheme in place they are pretty much being forced to pay the charges. So when Tim Kent of Bristol City Council said that ‘The purpose of the scheme is to cut congestion’ I started to struggle with how?

If the company accepts the charge or shares the charge with employees there will be no change. If the company refuses the charge and shuts down the car park what happens to the drivers?

They will simply drive around till they find a parking space, adding to the congestion. And what about the empty car parks?

They could le leased out to NCP encouraging more people into the City centre as there are more parking spaces available for drivers. Have I missed something here or is this simply a way to raise some extra cash? Please say I’ve missed something! By Graham Hill
