To move the following Clause—

 

         

“Appeals against parking charges

 

(1)    

This section applies if the parking code contains guidance recommending that all

 

parking appeals are dealt with by a single person who is independent of persons

 

providing private parking facilities.

 

(2)    

The Secretary of State may, for the purpose of enabling or facilitating persons to

 

act in accordance with that guidance, enter into an agreement with any person

 

who appears to the Secretary of State to be so independent for that person to deal

 

with parking appeals.

 

(3)    

An agreement under this section may provide—

 

(a)    

for payments to be made by the Secretary of State in respect of dealing

 

with parking appeals;

 

(b)    

for the person to have power to charge fees, payable by persons providing

 

private parking facilities, for dealing with parking appeals;

A person authorised by an agreement under this section to deal with parking

 

appeals may not authorise any other person to perform that function.

In this section “parking appeals” means appeals against parking charges imposed

 

by, or on behalf of, persons providing private parking facilities.”

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

The new clause provides that, if the parking code recommends that all appeals against parking

 

charges are dealt with by a single independent person, the Secretary of State may enter into an

 

agreement with such a person for that person to deal with appeals against parking charges.

“( )    

where the Secretary of State has entered into an agreement with a person

The effect of this amendment is that, where the Secretary of State enters into an agreement with a

 

person for the person to deal with appeals against parking charges (see NC1), the costs of

 

establishing and maintaining that parking appeals service may be defrayed out of the proceeds of

 

the levy imposed on accredited parking associations.
