Once again motorists are being targeted by cash starved councils. A number of councils including Nottingham and Bristol are looking to introduce a work place parking levy.
Businesses will be taxed based on the number of parking spaces their site contains, but it is well documented by businesses they will pass this tax on to employees who use the spaces.
Bristol has become the second major city to introduce this controversial "work place parking tax", as it try’s to generate £27 million it needs to fund the bus only lanes on a number of roads, which is a move to cut congestion.
Liberal Democrat councilor in charge of Bristol Council's transport policy, Tim Kent, has made no secret of the fact he thinks motorists should be footing the bill: “I have said I don’t want businesses to pay a penny. I really believe it should be paid by those who benefit from having a free parking space in the city centre.”
