This form is used to register as an owner of a car park (whether a private or public car park) or as an operator of a public car park for the purposes of sections 27 and 28 of the Congestion Levy Act 2005.
Details supplied on this form will also be used to complete the Annual Return for Congestion Levy for the purposes of Section 31 of the Congestion Levy Act 2005.
1. Congestion Levy Area
A map of the Congestion Levy area is available on the SRO’s website.
2. Nomination of authorised representative
If you nominate an authorised representative to act on your behalf, we will deal directly with your representative. Correspondence and information relating to all the car parks on your premises will be sent to that representative.
3. Nomination of operator
If there is a public car park on your premises that is operated by another person, that operator must register separately. You can, however, nominate the operator to lodge your Annual Returns and receive all further correspondence and Assessments relating to the relevant car park.
If you nominate the operator to lodge Annual Returns for the car park, you need to advise them of this. If you own several premises containing public car parks, you may nominate some or all of the operators to lodge Annual Returns for their respective premises.
Once you have nominated an operator to lodge Annual Returns on your behalf, you acknowledge that the information they provide will determine the Levy payable for that car park.
If you own some but not all of the parking spaces in a public car park, you are encouraged to nominate the operator to lodge Annual Returns on your behalf.
4. Premises details
Provide details of all parking spaces existing on premises owned by you. Separate entries are required for parking spaces at different locations, which will be treated as separate car parks. If more than one car park exists at the one address, complete the information requested for each car park. For example, you own a multi storey building which has five floors of parking spaces. Three floors are operated as a public car park by a tenant/operator and another two floors of parking spaces are managed by a building manager as a private car park. You must enter separate details for each car park, by repeating the street address and stating the floors applicable to the private and public car park respectively.
Address of premises containing the car park
For each car park in which you own some or all of the parking spaces, provide complete details of the location, such as building name and street address, including floors or levels of the building if applicable.
Car park type
Indicate whether the car park is a public car park, open to members of the general public, or a private car park.
Provide the total number of marked spaces owned by you in the car park including parking spaces which may be exempt. There will be an opportunity to claim exemptions for your car park(s) in the Annual Return.
Area used for parking
If all, or part, of a car park comprises areas without marked parking spaces, indicate the extent of these areas for parking expressed in square meters.
Provide the start date when the car park commenced operation as a public car park. In the case of a private car park provide the date of ownership commencement date.
Name of operator
For a public car park, operated by a person who is not the owner of the premises, provide the name of the person who operates that car park.
- If you cease to operate a public car park after you have registered, or if as an owner, after you have registered, you acquire additional premises or a new car park commences operations from your existing premises, you should complete the Change of Details form from our website.
- The operator of a public car park and the owner of the premises on which that car park is located are jointly and severally liable to pay the Levy. The SRO, however, requires only one party from each car park to participate in the administration of the Levy. You may be nominated by the owner of the premises as the party required to lodge returns for the car park and the SRO has requested owners to advis`e operators of such decisions. If the owner has taken this action, the SRO will send all correspondence regarding Levy matters for the car park to you.
