Repeal of the residents parking tax
I would retore the right of residents in urban areas to park at least one vehicle in front of their home.
Since this pernicious tax was introduced by john prescott local authorities have been able to tax local residents for parking in front of their own homes this money is then hypothocated to subsidize non residents park and ride schemes for people who live in the country side or leafy suburbs and who do not pay any such tax. Repeal it now.
Why does this idea matter?
This measure often sold under the banner of discouraging car use is a further tax on residents in inner urban areas and is unfair .Homes with off road parking or large properties with drives pay no such tax. Why should poorer people in inner urban areas be taxed so unfairly in order to subsidize otherwise non viable schemes.
