star this property answer text <p>The Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 grants keeper liability for vehicles, allowing landowners and parking operators to pursue the registered keeper of a vehicle for breaches of contract related to parking. Private parking companies must be a member of a trade association if they wish to access DVLA data in order to issue parking charges to vehicle owners. The two parking trade associations, the British Parking Association (BPA) and the International Parking Community (IPC), have their own codes of practice and appeal procedures to which they expect their members to adhere. If a private parking company does not follow these codes responsibly, they risk being banned from accessing DVLA data and will be unable to issue parking charges.</p> more like this

We are committed to reducing excessive central reporting burdens on local government. It is for local authorities and local communities to decide how best to manage their local parks and green spaces and how to utilise available funding to best effect.</p><p>The Government recognises the health benefits of parks and urban green spaces. We have invested over £15 million in 2018-19 to support a robust package of new Government initiatives to support the sustainability of green spaces – including £3.75 million on the expansion of the Pocket Parks Plus programme and £9.7 million to ensure local authorities can continue to maintain and develop good quality, accessible parks and green spaces.</p><p>The 25 Year Environment Plan (25YEP) sets out that spending time in the natural environment can improve our mental health and feelings of well-being. Government has committed to actions that seek to help people improve their health and well-being by using green spaces. These commitments include:</p><ul><li>Considering how NHS mental health providers in England could work with environmental voluntary sector organisations to offer mental health therapies</li><li>Establish a cross-government programme that helps health professionals and local authorities to connect more people with nature to support their health and wellbeing.</li></ul><p>Defra, NHS England, Public Health England and Natural England are working together to launch these actions and establish a programme which will deliver the 25YEP mental health commitments.</p><p> </p>

Funding for the programme is not ring-fenced and we do not collect information about spending on specific services such as marriage support. This funding flexibility allows upper tier local authorities and their partners to decide how best to deliver the programme in their own area, according to local need and priorities. Up to £920 million has been made available for the programme from 2015-2020. In addition, my department has worked closely with DWP to make sure delivery of the programme is coordinated with the Reducing Parental Conflict Programme, for which up to £39 million has been made available.</p> more like this
