In developing Our Camden Plan, stakeholders in the Borough told us they strongly believe in clean, vibrant and sustainable places, and this was highlighted in the community’s call to improve air quality in Camden by 2025. In addition, the latest Camden Business Survey (2017) highlighted that two of the top three most important issues for businesses were good transport links and the quality of the local environment.
The Council is striving to deliver on these aspirations and priorities, and the Camden Transport Strategy (CTS) and Clean Air Action Plan include a commitment to explore the feasibility of a Workplace Parking Levy (WPL) for the Borough.
If implemented, a WPL could help reduce car use and increase levels of walking, cycling and use of public transport. In turn this would work towards reducing congestion, improving air quality and public health, enhancing accessibility and reducing road traffic casualties.
At a time when other funding is reducing, revenue from a WPL also has the potential to help deliver transformational public realm schemes in town centres and key business areas across the Borough. It could also help deliver other schemes identified in the transport strategy and supporting action plans, to improve conditions for pedestrians, deliver a Borough-wide network of cycling routes, and significantly improve our streets to reduce road traffic collisions
The Council are carrying out a workplace parking survey with our appointed consultant, Project Centre, which will help us to understand current levels of parking in private car parks throughout Camden and inform the ongoing development of the WPL Feasibility Study.
