Fourteenth Special Report
The Committee published its Seventh Report of Session 2005–06 on 22 June 2006. Theresponse from the Department for Transport was received in the form of a memorandumdated 26 September 2006, and is published as an Appendix to this report.
This paper sets out the Government’s response to the Transport Committee’s report“Parking Policy and Enforcement” (HC 748-II, published on 22 June 2006). In preparingthis response we have worked closely with the Department for Constitutional Affairs, theDepartment for Communities and Local Government, the Home Office and the AuditCommission, and this response reflects their views. Some of the Committee’srecommendations are addressed to bodies over which Central Government has limited orno control – mainly the parking adjudicators – and we have not addressed thoserecommendations.The Government welcomes the publication of this report and largely shares the views of the Committee. Since the Committee’s report was published the Government hasproduced its consultation on draft regulations and draft statutory guidance to implementin England the parking provisions in Part 6 of the Traffic Management Act 2004. Thatconsultation closes on 25 September 2006 and so this response to the Committee has beenprepared without the benefit of the results of the consultation. It may be, therefore, that theGovernment’s plans will be changed in the light of the responses to the consultation.However, we hope that the proposals will, to a large extent, be acceptable as they wereprepared with the support of a working group of representatives of all the significantorganisations involved in the formulation, implementation and enforcement of parkingpolicy. We anticipate that the regulations will pass into law in mid-2007 and beaccompanied by statutory guidance, a communications toolkit and updated operationalguidance.The consultation made clear that the Government wants to see a parking system that is fairand consistent and believes that the proposals set out in the consultation will strengthenthe system of civil parking enforcement and help local authorities tackle local congestionand improve road safety. We want local authorities to use parking policy, controls, pricingand enforcement primarily to keep the traffic flowing and improve road safety.In summary, the Government proposes in the consultation that:1. Local authorities should regularly review their parking policies, inconsultation with stakeholders, to ensure they deliver the authority’stransport polcies and as far as posible, meet the needs of road users;
