This could be paid for by a significant increase in car parking charges for all cars including electric.  A tax on private car parking spaces would raise further funds.

    There is certainly merit in this. Increasing parking charges for stays longer than 3 hours would mean shoppers not disadvantaged by the increased rates, while those commuting would be impacted by having to pay more in parking charges.

    The current rate per hour is well below that which is seen in most other developed nations. A £1.50/hr charge for stays longer than 3hours would still be below the standard one sees elsewhere.
