2) The average cost per permit as identified in Q1.

              £382.33

3) The average salary of the permit holders identified in Q1.

             £48,136. However this includes salaries of staff who car
share.  So if two people share the cost is split between them, I have used
both their salaries in the average calculations. 

4) The average salary of all University employees eligible to apply for a
parking permit.

              All University employees who live more than 2 miles away are
eligible to apply for a parking permit – the average salary therefore is
£38,665  

5) The number of staff on the main campus who receive free parking (please
include staff permitted to park at University residences on campus e.g.
Henry Price).

              60 Blue Badge Permit holders for main campus parking

Dear Tracey Crombie,
Thanks you very much for the information provided.

I would like additional clarification of point 5 as I feel the second part has not been answered.
The answer received states "Residency car parks are not managed by ourselves so unable to answer second part", in this case, please can you confirm who manages the car parking at University residences on campus e.g. Henry Price?

Yours sincerely,

Simon Winterbottom

Tracey Crombie,

Dear Mr Winterbottom

Apologies, I will check with our accommodation office and get back to you shortly.

Regards
Tracey

Dear Tracey Crombie,

Have you received any further information from the University accommodation office as written in your email dated 23rd November? If so, are you now able to answer question 5 fully?
5) The number of staff on the main campus who receive free parking (please include staff permitted to park at University residences on campus e.g. Henry Price).

Yours sincerely,

Simon Winterbottom

Tracey Crombie,

The University is closed from 21 December to 2 January.  Emails will be
dealt with as quickly as possible when the University re-opens.

Tracey Crombie,

Dear Mr Winterbottom

In relation to question 5, Residential Services manage the parking in campus residences.

• I can confirm that there are 10 staff who are not charged, who have been given permission to park at University campus residences.
• Who has permission to park at these residences, is currently under review. because we plan to make changes early in the new year, such that spaces used by staff at these residences will be charged for in line with the arrangements already applied across the main campus. Staff who are eligible to park or who don’t pay for a space will directed to park off campus.

I hope this is helpful in resolving your query. If you have any questions about this email, however, please don't hesitate to contact me.

If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your request and wish to make a complaint or request a review of our decision, you should write to or email directly Mr D Wardle, Deputy Secretary, The University of Leeds, Leeds, LS2 9JT ([email address]). You should do so within three months of receiving the University’s response to your request.
