Can S106 be used to restrict residents' parking permits?

The Court of Appeal has agreed with a High Court judgement* that S106 of the T&C Planning Act 1990 cannot be used to preclude residents of new developments from applying for parking permits.

Nursery permission

New Government Air Quality plan published for consultation

The Government has today published a draft plan to improve air quality by reducing nitrogen dioxide levels in the UK. The consultation is seeking views on options for reducing nitrogen dioxide in our towns and cities, with measures designed to reduce the impact of diesel vehicles, and accelerate the move to cleaner transport.

Local authorities are already responsible for improving air quality in their area, but will now be expected to develop new and creative solutions to reduce emissions as quickly as possible, while avoiding undue impact on the motorist.

In line with the timetable directed by the Courts the government is seeking views on these proposals in advance of preparing its final plan for publication by 31 July. All final decisions will be taken by the incoming government.
This consultation will run until 15 June. Full details are available here.
