The aim of the Bill is essentially to make it easier for local authorities to lower their parking charges and to provide for local authorities to consult interested parties if they are seeking to increase the cost of parking charges.

The Bill amends provisions in the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 and will in effect give the Secretary of State regulation-making powers to achieve the ends stated above. 

The Bill applies to England only.
