Workplace Parking Levy
We are investigating the potential introduction of a workplace parking levy for the city to encourage car commuters to consider other modes of transport, and to provide a sustained funding source to implement the sustainable transport measures proposed in the draft Leicester Transport Plan.
This is based broadly on the scheme introduced in Nottingham and would mean that employers would be charged a levy on commuter car parking spaces. Any workplace parking levy payments received could only be spent on transport improvements.
A formal consultation is currently available, inviting comments on the workplace parking levy business case. The consultation closes 13 March 2022.
If taken forward, the workplace parking levy will require approval by the Secretary of State for Transport. Workplace parking levy receipts would contribute to delivery of the Leicester Transport Plan projects post 2024.
