Subject: A Policy to Regulate Parking by Private Hospitals

THAT, aware that Article 186 (1) of the Constitution of Kenya 2010, and paragraph 5 of the Fourth Schedule to the Constitution provide forĀ  the functions and powers of County Government on County transport including county roads, street lighting, public road transport traffic and parking; further aware that recent years have witnessed a marked increase in the number of private hospitals with well-developed parking slots, where patients and other visitors are charged parking fee on entry to the premises; concerned that there are no regulations for private parkings in the County, which has resulted to exorbitant parking fees in some private hospitals in the County causing stressful situations to patients or visitors who visit a suffering family member; acknowledging that private hospitals may impose parking fees to visitors to deter mischievous motorists who visit the facilities for the simple purpose of parking their automobiles and proceeding to other businesses, this Assembly urges the County Executive to develop a policy to regulate parking charges by private hospitals in the County to avert exploitation by owners of premises through high parking fees when patients and the general public visit such premises for services.
