I know many people aren’t convinced about Nottingham City Council’s plan, but from the post below it appears that some people outside of Nottingham are also not convinced.
“Lobbydog wants to see MPs on the Transport Committee push Nottingham City Council on their plans to introduce a Workplace Parking Levy today.
The proposals would see 500 firms in central Nottingham paying £185 a year per parking space they provide for employees, rising to £350 in 2014.
At a time when firms are being pushed to the brink by the downturn and as councils could soon get the power to bump up business rates anyway, it’s a prickly subject.
If the levy means less traffic, better transport, and no harm to the economy then great. But I need to see the plan stand up to proper public scrutiny before I’m convinced.”
