Parking Plus was introduced to make the cost of parking on site at the University as cost effective as possible. The University's savings from Parking Plus will focus on supporting sustainable transport and on campus environmental initiatives.
How Parking Plus works
If you already have a University parking permit, you are currently paying for your permit out of your take home pay (£15 a month for Gilmorehill and £10.42 for Garscube).
With Parking Plus your gross contractual salary will be reduced by the cost of the parking permit. The University will pay for your permit. You save income tax and NI contributions on the cost of your permit, increasing your take home pay.
Parking Plus will result in participating employees seeing an increase in take home pay of:
- Gilmorehill: approximately £55 a year for a basic rate tax payer, £76 a year for a higher rate tax payer and £94 a year for an additional rate taxpayer.
- Garscube: approximately £38 a year for a basic rate tax payer, £53 a year for a higher rate tax payer and £65 a year for an additional rate taxpayer.
When you apply for and receive a University parking permit you will be automatically enrolled into Parking Plus unless;
In these cases the permit will be deducted from net pay.
If you participate in any other parts of Benefits Plus then these will also be taken into account when deciding if you will be automatically enrolled in Parking Plus. It is not possible to participate in both Parking Plus and Cycle Plus simultaneously.
If you do not already hold a parking permit, and you wish to obtain one, more information about how to apply can be found inParking Permit Information. Please note there is currently a waiting list for permits, but we will process your request as soon as possible after a space becomes available.
