London boroughs eye £750 workplace parking charge image

Several London boroughs are considering introducing workplace parking levies (WPLs) of at least £750 a year to cut pollution and encourage active travel.

Local confidence is buoyed by the mayor's transport strategy, which gives support for WPLs. Hounslow Council has already carried out an informal consultation on a potential WPL and other boroughs are also actively exploring this option, including Camden.

Any proposal from a borough would have to be approved by mayor Sadiq Khan and Transport for London, which has produced draft guidance on the issue ‘to facilitate the development of WPLs in London which are capable of being approved by the Mayor’.
