Workplace parking levy - charge estimates?

The request was partially successful.

Dear University of Oxford,

Oxfordshire County Council plans to introduce a workplace parking levy on organisations who have large car parks in Oxford in the next couple of years, after having agreed the policy in principle some time ago.

Informal estimates, undertaken by residents (assuming the WPL charge is set at £600 per car parking space, per year), have estimated that the WPL will pose a significant financial burden on Oxford University, which charges running into tens - if not hundreds - of thousands of pounds per year.

In light of this, I am writing to ask to be provided with:
a) any estimates regarding the number of staff car parking sites across the Oxford University estate, ideally broken down by site.
b) any annual estimated costs to the University by the WPL, produced on the assumption that the levy may be applied to the University .

Please also confirm if no information regarding my two requests are available, if relevant.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Parnham
