  9. Nottingham congestion 'not reduced' by parking levy

    BBC Radio Nottingham

    The levy has generated more than £50m, which has been reinvested in public transport projects in the city.

    Jon Collins, who steps down as council leader today, insists the levy has helped to keep the volume of traffic "steady" something he claims is "unlike every other big city".

    He said it's also helped to reduce air pollution.

    Other cities around the country have considered introducing a similar scheme including in Leicester.
