Because of their low emissions, electric vehicle owners can get a free parking permit in as many as ten boroughs. Islington Council has the highest bike hangar rental rate in London, at £107 per year, with electric vehicle licenses only £25 and other automobiles costing as little as £30. Islington Council, according to Oliver Lord of the Clean Cities Campaign, is not doing enough to encourage cycling. As per Mr. Lord, bike parking should never be more expensive than vehicle parking. He also wants local governments to reconsider their laws on car permits. “We’ve got it the wrong way around,” he added. “The way I look at it is it’s too cheap to park a car in these boroughs, so councils should be rebalancing things by charging more for car parking and using that money to fund cheap cycle parking spaces.”
