This briefing will inform MSPs why Councils should be given the power to implement Workplace Parking Levies where they feel it would be appropriate. This levy will fulfil a number of goals shared across Scotland’s political spectrum, including:

● Tackling the public health problems associated with air pollution, and bringing Scotland into compliance with its European legal obligations on air quality
● Reducing carbon emissions from the transport sector, contributing to efforts to tackle climate change
● Generate funding to make Scotland’s transport system more equitable, and work for everyone
