29Additional powers of local authorities in connection with off-street parking places

(1)The power of a local authority under section 28 of this Act to provide off-street parking places shall include power, exercisable in accordance with proposals in that behalf made to the appropriate Minister and approved by him, to provide them in buildings used also for other purposes, and to erect or adapt, and to maintain, equip and manage, buildings accordingly ; and the authority by whom a parking place is so provided may let on such terms as they think fit parts of the building which are not used for the parking place, and may provide services for the benefit of persons occupying or using those parts, and make such reasonable charges for those services as they may determine.

(2)The appropriate Minister shall not approve proposals submitted to him under subsection (1) above for the provision of a parking place in a building used also for other purposes unless he is satisfied that the extent to which those purposes will be served by the building is no more than reasonable to ensure the economic operation of the parking place.

(3)A local authority may adapt for use as a temporary off-street parking place any land owned by them or under their control, not being, in the case of land so owned, land acquired or appropriated by them for such a parking place.

(4)A local authority may let for use as a parking place any off-street parking place provided by them.

(5)Where under subsection (1) above a local authority provide an off-street parking place in a building, the power conferred on them by subsection (4) above shall extend to letting the parking place separately from the rest of the building and to letting the whole or any part of the building with the parking place.

(6)A local authority may on such terms as they think fit—

(a)let land on which they could erect or adapt a building for the purpose of providing an off-street parking place with a view to some other person's doing so ; or

(b)arrange with any person for him to provide such a parking place on any land of which he is the owner or in which he has an interest.

(7)A local authority may at an off-street parking place provided by them under section 28 of this Act provide and maintain such buildings, facilities and apparatus as they think fit for the storage and sale of fuel and lubricants and supply of air and water for the vehicles, and may let or hire out, on such terms as they think fit, the buildings, facilities or apparatus so provided, but shall not themselves sell or supply fuel or lubricants.

(8)The foregoing provisions of this section shall not affect the provisions of any local Act as to the provision of parking places.

(9)A local authority shall have power, and (notwithstanding anything in section 81 of the Road Traffic Act 1960 as originally enacted or in the corresponding provision of the enactments repealed by that Act) shall be deemed always to have had power, to enter into arrangements with any person under which, in consideration of the payment by him to the authority of a lump sum, or series of lump sums, he is authorised to collect and retain the charges made in respect of the parking of vehicles in an off-street parking place provided by the authority under section 28 of this Act, under the said section 81 or under that section as applied by virtue of section 82 of the said Act of 1960 or under the corresponding provisions of the enactments repealed by that Act.
