City council argues business parking fees could raise £95m over decade to fund better public transport
Leicester City Council has launched a public consultation over its proposed Workplace Parking Levy (WPL), a scheme that the authority argues will help fund a radical overhaul and long-term modernisation of the city’s public transport, cycling and walking networks.
Over the summer Leicester City Council carried out initial consultations into a possible scheme, and now more detailed plans for the WPL have been published.
The 12-week public consultation will give people and employers the chance to find out more details about the proposed WPL and how it would work, and to comment on the scheme.
