Norwich could introduce congestion charge

Council representatives in Norfolk are considering introducing a congestion charge, a workplace parking levy and banning certain vehicles from the city centre as part of its strategic review into transport in the city.

The Transforming Cities joint committee, consisting of councillors from Norfolk County Council and Norwich, Broadland and South Norfolk councils, has been asked to comment on the draft plans ahead of finalising the strategy for public consultation.

Martin Wilby, chair of the committee and cabinet member for highways and infrastructure told the Eastern Daily Press, “The proposed Transport for Norwich strategy sets out our intention to investigate possible measures through which we can deliver our aims, such as carbon reduction and improvements to air quality.

“If approved for consultation, we will then be asking stakeholders and the public for their views on its content before putting forward a final version for adoption later in the year.”
