Guide to the Workplace Parking Levy
A Workplace Parking Levy (WPL) is a charge on employers who provide workplace parking. Nottingham City Council introduced the levy in 2012 to tackle problems associated with traffic congestion.
All employers providing workplace parking places are legally obliged to licence those places and may be liable to pay. Small employers with 10 or fewer workplace parking places (excluding blue badge holders) may be entitled to a 100% discount and will not have to pay a charge.
Employers are responsible for paying any WPL charge, although they can choose to reclaim part or all the cost of the WPL from their employees.
