Do you need a WPL licence?

If you are an employer inside Nottingham City Council's administrative boundary and you provide workplace parking places for any of the following, you are legally obliged to obtain a WPL licence:

  • Employees
  • Regular business visitors (regular business visitors are consultants, contractors, suppliers, agency staff or other business visitors attending their regular place of work)
  • Pupils or students attending a course of education or training

Employers need a separate WPL licence for each individual premises where workplace parking is provided. Premises are any land or building inside Nottingham City Council's administrative boundary that is used by an employer to provide workplace parking.
