Congestion Levy - Application for registration as an owner or operator of a car park
Use this form to register as an owner or operator of a car park for the purposes of sections 27 and 28 of the Congestion Levy Act 2005 (the Act).
Details supplied on this form will also be used in the Annual Return for Congestion Levy for the purposes of Section 31 of the Act.
If you have already registered with us and you wish to notify us of any changes to your details (eg. you stopped operating a public car park, you have sold your car park or acquired a new car park), please complete the Change of Details form.
1. Congestion levy area
To determine whether your car park is located in the congestion levy area, please review a map of the congestion levy area.
2. Nomination of authorised representative
If you are an owner and you nominate an authorised representative to act on your behalf, we will deal directly with them. All correspondence and information relating to all the car parks on your premises will be sent to your nominated representative.
3. Operator of public car park must register
If a public car park is operated by a person other than its owner, the operator must register separately. The owner may nominate the operator to lodge the annual returns and receive all correspondence and assessments relating to the relevant public car park. The operator should be informed of such a nomination.
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.
By nominating an operator to lodge annual returns on your behalf, you are acknowledging that the information they provide will determine the levy for that car park.
If you do not own 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. Detail all parking spaces on premises you own
Provide details of all parking spaces on premises you own.
Separate entries are required for parking spaces at different locations, as these are treated as separate car parks.
If more than one parking space is located at one address, please complete the requested information for each car park.
Example: You own a multi-storey building with five floors of parking spaces; three of the floors are operated as a public car park by a tenant/operator and the rest of the floors 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 identifying the floors that operate as a private car park and those that operate as public car park.
Address of premises in which the car park is located
For each parking space that you own, please provide details of the location, such as building name and street address, including floors or levels of the building.
Car park type
Indicate whether the car park is a public car park open to 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 is an opportunity to claim exemptions for your car park(s) in the annual return.
Area used for parking (square metres)
If all, or part, of a car park comprises areas without marked parking spaces, please indicate the extent (in square metres) of these areas that are used for parking. For information on what constitutes a parking space, please refer to car park information.
Provide the date when the car park started operation as a public car park. In the case of a private car park, provide the date ownership started.
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 operating the car park.
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.
