Council slammed over workplace parking levy consultation

“NOTTINGHAM City Council was today slammed over its efforts to consult businesses on the workplace parking levy.

 A report published by the Transport Select Committee has concluded the council’s consultation with local firms was “deeply flawed”.

Furthermore their report accuses the council of assuming many businesses had “no strong views” on the controversial new charge.

The report’s release comes just days before the Department for Transport is expected to announce whether the council will be allowed to introduce the workplace parking levy (WPL).”

I have seen the information that was sent out to businesses as part of the consultation. It makes it clear that if you have less than 10 parking spaces in your premises you won’t pay this levy.

I strongly suspect most businesses read this, realised it didn’t apply to them directly, and thus didn’t bother to reply. This doesn’t mean they agree with this levy, just that it doesn’t personally affect them.
