70% of respondents indicated that they consult the local business community on changes in parking standards and, although leaving much room for improvement, on the face of it that is a promising result. A number of respondents mentioned specific local business forums, but they were in the minority. It seems to us that consultation on such an important issue deserves to be specific, even if it is a part of the normal Plan process.
However, as it appears that special consultation is not widespread, it is important that businesses of all sizes should be pro-active in keeping in touch with policy formulation in their area. It is wrong to assume that views will otherwise be canvassed. It is important also not to think that the issue is irrelevant to businesses presently content with their existing site and parking.property valuer sydney When the time comes to expand on site, or re-locate, it is likely then to be too late to have any input to the planning process. Whatever the form of the consultation, it is reasonable to expect that it will explain how alternative travel modes have been assessed to be adequate to cater for those businesses affected by parking reductions.
The legal mechanism for implementing business parking tax/road use charging in England was not in place at the time the survey was carried out, and it had been dropped from emerging Scottish legislation. Nevertheless, we thought it would be interesting to seek information on local authority attitudes.
Only 9% of respondents indicated their authority was ‘for’ a business parking tax, whilst 14% were against it. 20% were against road user charging, whilst only some 5% were for it. The vast majority of planning authorities seem to be ‘undecided’ on whether they would/will implement a tax/charging system.
