Major parking law changes could see drivers hit with £550 charge – ‘financial burden’

Nottingham is the only city in the UK to have the scheme, with a cost of £415 per space per year, which has generated around £64million since 2012.

There have been calls to introduce the scheme in Leicester, with consultations being launched which looks at charging companies with more than 10 parking spaces £550 a year per space from next year.

Liz Cameron fears that introducing a WPL without an upper limit could hit “town and city centres hard”.

She continued, saying: “Many businesses are still recovering from the financial impact of the pandemic, which has severely reduced trade and significantly increased costs over the past two years.”
