The UK's first tax on parking spaces is expected to be endorsed by the Government.
Commuters could be charged £185 a year to leave cars at work under the scheme, with the sum rising by 2014 to £350 per parking bay for firms with 11 or more.
The plans would be piloted by Nottingham City Council, the first local authority to express an interest in the idea.
The revenue raised will be used to pay for the expansion of the city's tram network which is expected to be given the go-ahead by Transport minister Sadiq Khan.
Last year, the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Chamber of Commerce carried out a survey to see which of its members were against the tax.
It found 61 companies were threatening to relocate, while a further 74 were considering partial relocation or were shelving any plans to expand in the city.
