Call for bill to regulate parking spaces

THE HOUSE Interior Committee asked the Legal Services to prepare a proposal to the Committee for the constitution of an independent authority, which will check the prices in private, municipal and community parking spaces.

At yesterday’s discussion of the bill proposal, made by DISY MP George Georgiou, the representative of the Legal Services reported that the proposed control cannot be accepted because there is no independent authority that determines the prices.

Georgiou explained that such an authority is enacted where the public interest is affected, as in the case of the telecommunications or medicine regulator.

DISY MP Ionas Nicolaou said there is no need for the determination of a price frame because competition functions as a mechanism of price control. Committee chairman and AKEL MP, Andros Kyprianou and the party MPs with the exception of DISY said that “a way has to be found for the determination of prices, because due to the limited parking spaces the consumers may be taken advantage of at any time”.

AKEL MP Takis Hadjigeorgiou reported that additional parking spaces could be found, if the municipal authorities in collaboration with the government services would make the best use of the parking spaces of these organisations when they are not working, like in the afternoon and on the weekends.

“As an example, the Nicosia Municipality could examine in collaboration with the Electricity Authority of Cyprus the possibility of using the authority’s parking space during the hours where the EAC offices are closed,” Hadjigeorgiou suggested.

DISY MP Nicos Tornaritis added that “parking spots in schools could be used in the same way”.

Concerning the subject of insurance of parking spaces, the representative of the Legal Services said that if insurance in parking spaces is made into law it will be valid for municipal, community and private parking places.

The representative of the Interior Ministry Andreas Assiotis said insurance may result in the increase of parking fees.

It was also reported also that it is very likely that no insurance company would insure these parking spaces.
