Increase Car Park Fees and Charge for Onstreet Parking

Increase the costs of parking, parking permits and leverage it by over inflationary increases especially in town and congested areas. This would reduce the need to provide more facilities in towns and could reduce congestion and pollution. Offset this with a reduction in the cost of public transport and set up park and ride schemes and park walk and cycle initiatives and introduce bicycle carrying on public transport.

The carrot and stick approach has worked in other parts of the world.

The first thing visitors to the island see at the sea ports and airports is stationary traffic, noise and pollution not really what we have signed up for in the biosphere and emission reduction regulations.

Why the contribution is important

Congestion costs productivity

Reduce future government spending on parking provision

First impressions count

Increased revenue stream

Health implications reduced pollution and healthier population

Reduced pollution and nicer environment to live and work in
