Date lodged: 7 February 2019
To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5F-03042 by John Swinney on 7 February 2019 (Official Report, c. 22), what its response is to the call by the EIS for schools to be exempt from workplace parking levies.
Answered by: Michael Matheson 7 March 2019
The Workplace Parking Levy will be a discretionary power for local authorities to implement should they wish to do so within the provisions set by the Transport (Scotland) Bill and Regulations. The detail on the framework for how Workplace Parking Levies will operate, including further exemption, will be the subject of consideration at Stage Two of the Transport (Scotland) Bill.
