Original consultation

The government is seeking to gather evidence to inform our review of parking charges and debt recovery fees in the private parking industry.

Consultation description

The government is running a call for evidence as part of plans to better regulate the private parking sector, including considering options for private parking charges (issued for a perceived breach of a car park’s rules) and debt recovery fees.

The measures considered are part of developing a code of practice, as required by the Parking (Code of Practice) Act 2019, which will ensure greater regulation of the private parking industry.

The call for evidence is examining the effects that could be expected from the code of practice and 5 options relating to parking charges and debt recovery fees to help the decision-making process.

This is a joint consultation, published by the UK Government, Scottish Government, and the Welsh Government.
