To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5F-03037 by John Swinney on 7 February 2019 (Official Report, c. 9), how much each local authority could raise in the first full year of a workplace parking levy if a model similar to that used in Nottingham was introduced.
Answered by: Michael Matheson 7 March 2019
The Workplace Parking Levy will be a discretionary power for local authorities. Any local authority revenue would depend on how the scheme is introduced at a local level by a local authority should it choose to use these discretionary powers.
