(1)Subject to subsection (1A) below and to sections 84A, 84B and 84C of this Act, where, in pursuance of the powers conferred by section 28 of this Act, a local authority provide a parking place which may be used by public service vehicles, the local authority may, if they think fit,—

(a)by order appoint that parking place as a station for, or for a specified class of, such vehicles ;

(b)in England or Wales by regulation, and in Scotland by order, declare that section 31(5) of this Act shall not apply to public service vehicles, either absolutely or to such extent as may be specified in the regulation or order.

(1A)Without prejudice to subsection (1) and to any regulations under subsection (2) or (4) of section 84C of this Act, before making an order under subsection (1)(a) above otherwise than in pursuance of a direction given by the Minister under section 84A(1) of this Act, the local authority shall consult—

(a)with the appropriate traffic commissioners; and

(b)if the local authority's area is situated wholly or partly within an area designated under section 9(1) of the Transport Act 1968, with the Executive for that area ;

and, if the order is required to be submitted to the Minister for his consent under section 84B of this Act, the authority shall so consult before so submitting it.

(2)Where a parking place is appointed under this section as a station for public service vehicles, the local authority may—

(a)do all such things as are necessary to adapt the parking place for use as such a station, and in particular provide and maintain waiting rooms, ticket offices and lavatories, and other similar accommodation, in connection therewith;

(b)make reasonable charges for the use of, or let on hire to any person, any accommodation so provided; and

(c)make regulations as to the use of any such accommodation.

(3)A local authority shall have power to make such reasonable charges for the use of a parking place, not being part of a street, as a station for public service vehicles as may be fixed by the local authority, so however that if the public service vehicle licence holder in respect of any vehicles using the parking place as a station considers that the charges fixed are unreasonable, then, in default of agreement between the licence holder and the local authority for a reduction thereof, the charges in respect of those vehicles shall be such as may be determined by the appropriate traffic commissioners.

(5)In this section, the expression " the appropriate traffic commissioners " means the commissioners for any traffic area constituted for the purposes of Part III of the Road Traffic Act 1960 in which the area or any part of the area of the local authority is situate.

(8)The powers conferred on a local authority by subsections (1) and (2) above shall be in addition to, and not in substitution for, the powers conferred on a local authority by sections 28 and 29(1) of this Act.

(9)The purposes of this section shall be purposes for which a local authority may borrow.
