A campaign against the introduction of a work place parking levy, widely regarded as a thinly veiled tax on employees, has gained significant support before a rally this Saturday. Bristol would be only the second city to introduce such a levy, charging £1 per staff parking space per day, which would cost a small business of five employees over £1200 per year.
This is not just a matter of concern for local shopkeepers, says the South West co-ordinator of the TPA, ‘Student residents should also be concerned as this levy could mean an increase in the number of cars parked in residential roads, which would in turn lead to a proliferation of permit parking schemes and more charges and paperwork they would have to deal with. It also has terrible a knock on effect with local shops, making it more difficult for shoppers.’
This Saturday will see Matthew Sinclair, Chief Executive of the Tax Payers’ Alliance joined by local activists; Simon Richards, Director of The Freedom Association; and Charlotte Leslie MP and the Conservative mayoral candidate Goeff Gollop. The campaign is supported by many of the mayoral candidates of all parties including Respect, many independents, and Labour. Furthermore, The Federation of Small Businesses and The Association of British Drivers have given their backing.
If you would like to join the campaign, please be at The Nails in Corn Street for 11am on Saturday the 29th of September.
