This document is issued as a part of the consultation document on transport policy and shows the various means by which parking generally, and private non-residential parking (pnr) in particular, might be controlled and what would be involved in operating such controls. It discusses the need for control and gives various reasons for the control of pnr. Some of the problems involved in the operation of the two most feasible methods; taxation and parking permits are discussed. It is emphasised that pnr control alone would not solve congestion problems; it would be one of a number of measures and would only be used where more orthodox restraint and traffic management were not suitable and adequate public transport was available. Although alternative methods of restraint may prove to be unacceptable or unpopular, the control of parking on private property raises controversial points of principle. The document invites the views of organisations and individuals on the need for pnr control, its method of enforcement, and possible alternatives. /TRRL/
