Leeds City Council parking charge u-turn

Leeds City Council ParkingLeeds city council has been forced to make a u-turn over a plan to charge more than 20,000 people £50 a year to park outside their own homes.

The climbdown comes after a court ruled a London council’s bid to raise its charges for a similar scheme illegal – and after more than 4,000 people responded to a consultation and slammed the idea.
