The University has frozen the annual Staff Permit price at £170 to help minimise the impact on staff of the Government's tax change which will mean monthly parking permit payments through salary sacrifice will increase by around £4 per month. This is due to the Government abolishing tax-free workplace parking benefits for employees. Staff will no longer receive savings on their tax and NI payments on their parking permit charges.
The cost of Car Share permits, Electric Vehicle permits and Termly Staff permits have also been frozen. The cost of other permits have increased in line with inflation. As a result of these Government changes, the discount for staff who are ineligible for Flexible Benefits has been removed to ensure equality of charges across all groups of staff.
Staff Bus Pass Pricing
Due to the increasing costs of the bus subsidy, staff on higher grades will have to pay a little more for their subsidised bus pass next year. However, the cost will still remain less than £10 per month and remain free for staff on grades 1 and 2.
Prices are as follows:
Grades 1 & 2 = free
Grades 3 to 6 = £99
Grades 7 and above = £112
Sports Field Car Park K
From Monday 2nd October 2017 the price to park on this car park, during chargeable hours, will change to £3 per day.
