Parking (Code of Practice) Bill Achieves Royal Assent

Posted in General News on Wednesday, March 20th, 2019

On 15th March the Parking (Code of Practice) Bill achieved Royal Assent and became an Act of Parliament. The new law will mean the introduction of a single standard setting body, a single code of practice and potentially a single independent appeals service.  The British Parking Association has been heavily involved in the development of the Bill and the organisation’s Chief Executive, Andrew Pester, commented: “This framework will enable greater consistency and consumer confidence. As a not-for-profit association we will continue to work closely with Government and others, including consumer groups, to help develop a single Code of Practice that provides a fair outcome for motorists, landowners and parking operators alike.”

The details of the single code of practice are still in development and are subject to consultation and we will keep you updated as things move forward. DMUK is pleased that this Bill has passed through parliament successfully and we believe that it is good news for all motorists. Having a single code of practice in place will make the rules of parking on private land clearer.
