Leicester City Council is consulting on the introduction of a workplace parking levy for the city to encourage car commuters to consider other modes of transport, and to provide a sustained funding source to implement the sustainable transport measures proposed in the draft Leicester Transport Plan.
The WPL is based broadly on the scheme introduced in Nottingham and would mean that employers would be charged a levy on commuter car parking spaces. Any workplace parking levy payments received could only be spent on transport improvements.

Leicester City Council is consulting on a new Draft Leicester Transport Plan which sets out the Council’s transport vision, ambitions and priorities for the city over the next 15 years. The council is also exploring the potential role a workplace parking levy could play in supporting delivery of the transport plan and initial thinking is also being consulted on.
A new Transport Plan for Leicester is needed to respond to the many issues facing the city including enabling city economic and population growth, tackling climate emergency and air quality challenges, improving health and physical activity levels and recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.

This webinar will provide an overview of some of the recent planning changes announced by the Government including changes to permitted development rights and use classes, as well as a look at the Planning White Paper: Planning For The Future, which the Prime Minister described as “Radical reform unlike anything we have seen since the Second World War”.
Paul Wakefield from Shakespeare Martineau will look at the White Paper and give some thoughts as to whether the proposed changes are as radical as the prime minister would have us believe, and together with Tony Aspbury of Aspbury Planning they will look at the changes announced to use classes and permitted development which took effect at the beginning of September and what those will mean in practice.
There will also be the opportunity to ask questions of Paul and Tony after their presentations.
