Decision:

Cabinet RESOLVED to:

 

(1)      Consult parking account holders on a recommendation to formally link and align the cost of daily visitor permits to bus fares set by Transport for London (TfL); charges for daily visitor permits would then directly align with any future price changes made by TfL to the cost of bus fares.

(3)      Delegate authority to the Strategic Director of Regeneration and Environment, in consultation with the Lead Member of the Environment:

 

(a)      to consider the outcome of the consultation responses in relation to the proposals set out in (1) and (2) above; and

(b)      if he thinks fit to do so, to proceed thereafter with the statutory consultation and notification process in respect of those proposals; and

(c)       after consideration of the responses to this statutory consultation and notification process, if he thinks it fit to do so, to implement the proposed changes to the daily visitor parking permits and permit refunds; and

(d)      to amend current Traffic Management Orders to implement the proposals set out in (1) and (2) above.
