In central London, the use of private non-residential parking space (that attached to office blocks and other forms of development) has doubled in the last twelve years, while there has been a considerable reduction in the peak period use of public parking space. This paper reports the findings of a working party set up by the GLC and the DOE to examine the possibilities of controlling pnr parking. Options examined include: discontinuance orders, acquisition of freehold, standard reduction orders, car park licensing to reduce supply, rating, taxation, parking permits, and car park licensing to control usage. It was concluded that if pnr use is to be controlled directly the choice lies between taxation, which presents some equity problems, and the reduction of supply by standard reduction orders or car park licensing, both of which would give rise to considerable compensation costs. /TRRL/
