The air quality agenda and chronic traffic congestion in the UK’s urban centres have pushed traffic and parking management up the policy agenda at both a national and local government level.

A number of UK councils are now giving serious consideration to introducing Workplace Parking Levy (WPL schemes). In parallel, towns and cities are developing an array of low emission zones imposing a range of restrictions on different classes of vehicle.

The day will feature:

  • A focus on Nottingham’s Workplace Parking Levy - how it works, policy aims, lessons learned and its lasting impact.

  • An overview of other WPL schemes planned and a look at Clean Air Zone schemes around the UK.

Programme

09.45  Welcome and Introduction

Cllr Adele Williams, Portfolio Holder for Transport, Nottingham City Council

 10.00  Session 1: WPLs, CAZs, ULEZ and ZEZs: The new lexicon

The air quality agenda and chronic traffic congestion in the UK’s urban centres has pushed traffic and parking management up the policy agenda at both a national and local government level.

 A number of UK councils have given serious consideration to introducing Workplace Parking Levy (WPL schemes), commissioning studies and preparing public consultations. In parallel, over the next two years many towns and cities will have to implement measures to mitigate the impact of vehicle emissions on air quality in urban areas. This will lead to the creation of an array of low emission zones imposing a range of restrictions on different classes of vehicle. Some CAZs will be charging schemes, setting a fee for entry, while others will be non-charging, employing an array of traffic management and transport measures.

 This session will look at the national picture on WPL and CAZ and consider the interplay between measures designed to encourage, enforce and finance better travel choices in town and city centres.

 Chair: Jason Gooding, Head of Passenger, Fleet & Transport, Nottingham City Council

 Q&A

 11.00 Morning coffee in the networking zone

 11.30  Session 2: Delivering a WPL scheme 

The WPL concept is a local traffic management approach enabled in England under the Transport Act 2000 that involves local authorities collecting an annual fee from organisations for private non-residential parking spaces. The Transport (Scotland) Act 2019 enables Scottish local authorities to introduce WPL schemes.

 The fees raised by a WPL can be used to finance improved local transport services, infrastructure and public realm. An added benefit can be a reduction in car traffic as organisations rationalise and reduce parking provision over time.

 Nottingham City Council was the first, and still only, UK local authority to launch a WPL scheme. After much initial hostility, the scheme is widely regarded as having been a success in terms of stakeholder engagement, operation and revenue raising. The Nottingham scheme has won a number of national awards and is regularly cited in studies conducted by other local authorities considering WPL schemes.

 This session will comprise a panel that will discuss:

  • WPL and how it supports Nottingham’s ‘big picture’
  • Answer/better inform the question ‘is WPL right for my council’?
  • Share what has Nottingham learnt from pioneering WPLs?
