Parking (Code of Practice) Act 2019 - getting the best result for our members
Steve Thompson Steve Clark Gary Osner Derek Millard-Smith Stuart Harrison Mark Anfield Conor Greely

The BPA welcomes the introduction of the Parking (Code of Practice) Act 2019 and most of the measures it seeks to introduce, including a single code, a single appeals service, and a standard setting body. Indeed, we have lobbied for these elements for over a decade. However it must be noted that the government’s proposal to drastically reduce the deterrent effect of parking charges on private land has far reaching implications for consumers, landowners, and the parking sector.

It is crucial that any new measures build on the great strides that have been made to raise standards over recent years and do not unintentionally undo this good work and tarnish the whole parking sector. This session will see key industry figures being interviewed on a variety of workstreams to ensure that the best possible conclusion for the private parking sector is achieved.
