answer text <p>The department does not centrally collect data on high parking charges. Local authorities are responsible for setting local parking charges taking account of local circumstances.</p><p>We want local authorities to adopt policies that support local town centres, and have recently consulted on &quot;Strengthening Local Government Transparency&quot;. The consultation included a proposal to increase the amount of information local authorities would need to publish on parking thereby helping local communities to better understand what revenues were being raised from parking.</p><p>The intention of this proposed change would be to encourage a better local dialogue between communities and the local authorities that represent them about what appropriate parking charge levels should be.</p><p>We are currently analysing responses to the consultation and will publish our response in due course.</p> more like this

It cannot be further processed for any other purpose.

answer text <p>The Government promotes a system of self-regulation by the private parking industry. Private parking companies must be a member of a trade association if they wish to access the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) data and then issue parking charges to the owner of a vehicle. 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.</p><p>Sir Greg Knight has introduced a Private Members’ Bill that seeks to create an independent code of practice for private parking companies. In line with the Manifesto, the Government fully supports Sir Greg’s Bill and seeks to get the fairest deal for motorists whilst helping to tackle rogue private parking companies. Should the Bill progress, there will be an opportunity to consider the obligations on private parking companies. The Bill is due for second reading on 2 February 2018. Further information is available here <a href="http://services.parliament.uk/bills/2017-19/parkingcodeofpractice.html" target="_blank">http://services.parliament.uk/bills/2017-19/parkingcodeofpractice.html</a></p>
