Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

This report details the increase to the parking permit and on-street parking charges. The Mayor of London’s Transport Strategy as provided by sections 142 and 144(1)(a) Greater London Authority Act 1999, emphasises the importance of reducing emissions and improving air quality.

Where possible Lambeth encourages a move away from vehicle use and ownership and promotes the use of public transport, cycling and walking as sustainable and greener alternatives. Increasing charges would contribute to achieving this so it is essential that through our permit and on-street parking pricing that vehicle ownership is not seen as more economical than using sustainable methods of transport. This report recommends advertising a notice and undertaking a consultation to increase these charges.
