COULD CUT CONGESTION AND AIR POLLUTION IN READING
Employers in Reading may be charged for providing parking, if a proposed scheme is taken forward.
Reading Borough Council have been asked to consider the introduction of a Workplace Parking Levy.
Councillor Josh Williams, who has brought forward the charge, says it would reduce congestion and air pollution by encouraging people to car share, walk, cycle or catch the bus to work.
He added the levy would raise additional revenue which could be invested in public transport.
The controversial charge was introduced by Nottingham City Council in 2012 and last year it raised more than £9 million.
