The article, ‘Parking spaces are ‘created’ by £10 tariff’, proves the point – put prices up, and parking spaces are created! In this case, it’s a slightly different scenario – we have a hospital with free parking, but such a demand for parking that available spaces are almost impossible to find.
By introducing a £10 tariff to park over four hours, hospital management eliminated the local commercial office workers from using the hospital car park for their daytime parking, and created vacancies in the hospital car parking lots.
Simple and effective! Revenue generation is only an added bonus.
