Business will suffer from car charges, says ACCA

Charging motorists to drive into city centres threatens to 'damage' small businesses, according to ACCA.

The body believes that in London alone car and van drivers could pay as much as £7.50, while lorry drivers could find themselves forking out £15 each time they enter a city centre.

Multiplied across the country ACCA believes the charges will cost delivery companies billions and inhibity the creation of new enterprises.

ACCA has contained its views in a consultation paper to be published next week and in advance of the Transport Bill’s Royal Assent, which is due in the Autumn.

David Harvey, head of small business at ACCA, said: ‘Fledgling companies which are already struggling to survive under the weight of existing red tape will be badly damaged.’

He said individuals should at least be offered a tax break if they enter cities for work or business.
