Brent Council consults on parking permit changes

High emission vehicles could be charged more

Residents are being urged to comment on proposals to create a new tiered system of parking permit costs.

Brent Council is proposing to include more expensive permits for larger vehicles that give off higher emissions.

A council spokesman said the new system will help reduce air pollution and encourage drivers to own smaller, cheaper cars.

Brent Council is planning to re-launch the borough’s controlled parking zone (CPZ) scheme from 1 April 2011.
