What an enterprising young man...

...and a good way of keeping parking legal and not clogging up the town centres!

It is a good idea, but I have a better one that cuts out the middle man. If there was a nationaly recognised sign or cone that could be sat in your driveway when you have a space to let. Then we could all start letting our driveways without the need to rgegister anywhere. All the custumor would need to do would be drive around utill he/she sees a space that will do. Once innitial contact has been made, a permenent arangement could be set up if that was what you were looking for.
I have a nursing friend that is having her ward moved to a new hospital. They are going to charge anybody who is there more than ten hours 25.00 a day to park, and guess what? The nurses work 12hr shifts. Rolling Eyes She lives in the country with no public transport. I'm going to send her the link to this guys page. It's just what she is looking for.

Fantastic in theory but then the powers that be will know exactly who to tax for it!

I couldn't have put it better myself! Great idea, I hope he does well.

There are quite a few sites that do this already. Where I used to work many of the local properties with spare drive space had notes in their front windows offering to rent out their drive so it's quite a common practice round 'ere.

IIRC isn't there a way to avoid tax on small rental income?

There certainly used to be - it was for the Rent a Room scheme, but did apply to any property rental income under a certain amount a year, after expenses. I suppose this could count as property rental Confused
