Workplace Parking Levy (England) Regulations 2009 come into force

Implementation date: 1 October 2009

The Regulations make provisions in relation to licensing schemes under chapter 2 of part 3 of the Transport Act 2000, which confers powers on local traffic authorities to introduce workplace parking levy licensing schemes. The aim of such schemes is to provide an incentive to employers to discourage car commuting by imposing a levy depending on the amount of workplace parking provided. In particular, the Regulations provide for exemptions from the requirement to have a scheme order confirmed, liability to pay licence charges, the setting of penalty charge rates, notification of penalty charges to the person liable, and the adjudication of appeals. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
