Parking charges have not been fundamentally reviewed for a number of years, and residential parking permit charges have been frozen since 2009. The review considered an appropriate price to be one that challenges and encourages motorists to consider more active and sustainable transport modes such as walking, cycling and public transport. The review also recognised the impact of vehicle emissions and congestion on air quality, demand for kerbside space, and that the car is still sometimes a requirement.

The proposed charges will be set according to access to public transport, air quality and congestion. Drivers will pay more to park in areas where there are good public transport links, congestion is a problem and there are air quality concerns.

 

Residential parking permits and visitor permits​

The tables below sets out the charges based on 3 tiers, Tier 1 being nearest to the best transport links in the borough with a proposed higher charge, and Tier 3 which is less well served by public transport having a proposed a lower charge.

It is also proposed to charge based on the hours of operation and controlled parking zone (CPZ) is operational for during a day. For example, permits for a CPZ that is controlled for a shorter period of time will cost less than permits for zones that are controlled for a longer period. There is a related cost of enforcement depending on the length of time a scheme is operational and this should be reflected in the cost of a permit.
