There is no need for the Tories’ “parking tax of charging for the first permit. The figures from the city council show a very small cost and that can be eliminated and indeed a small surplus made if they can be applied for and renewed online (in line with savings achieved by other councils).
|Cost of administrating residents zones (source: Portsmouth City Council)||£180,000|
|Extra Revenue from parking zones agreed by member for Traffic and Transport excluding first permits (source: Portsmouth City Council)||£60,000|
|Surplus from MC and MB Zone if re-introduced (source: Portsmouth City Council)||£89,000|
|Minimum estimate of saving by processing of permits online (assume 20% saving)||£36,000|
|Total revenue / Savings||£185,000|
