CPRE London is calling on London boroughs to re-assess their parking policy as they launch a new Parking Policy Benchmark Assessment Tool designed to enable boroughs to identify areas for improvement. They say most London councils are nowhere near making best use of their parking powers .
Alice Roberts of CPRE London said: “After a preliminary assessment of a sample of borough policies, we noticed very low ambition in using parking policy to tackle serious issues like climate change and air pollution, so we decided to try to raise the bar by creating a benchmark, which we have done in consultation with sustainable travel organisations.
