WORKPLACE PARKING LEVY (WPL) - A yearly fee is charged for staff parking

  • 2% for charging £1000 a year per parking space at business premises (illustrative example)
    Whilst some employers may choose to pay the charge, others will pass the charge onto employees.
  • £13 million for charging £1000 per parking space at business premises

Positive

  • Encourages businesses to support employees to use sustainable travel options and/or release parking
  • Can encourage commuters to use public transport, walk or cycle, if businesses pass on the charge to their employees
  • Could free up space for other uses

Negative

  • Very limited impact on congestion as low levels of employee parking in many parts of the city
  • Impact dependent on business response and whether charge is passed on
