The war on motorists continues

Nottingham council's "workforce parking levy" which was due to come into force in 2012 has been approved by this anti-motorist Labour government. The "levy" means that commuters who drive to work face having to pay a new stealth tax of up to £350 a year. The scheme will start by charging only those companies who have more than 10 parking spaces set aside for staff. The initial charge will be £250 a year, rising to £350 within two years. Of course companies will be able to pass on the annual charge to the employees, the council and government don't care who pays so long as they get the money.

I wonder how many large and indeed small companies will leave Nottingham as a result of this measure?
