I believe there is legislation coming in to make any parking on pavements illegal.
If that is simplistic, knee jerk legislation, that could have an impact on jobs.
Very old, narrow streets, nowhere else to park except half on the pavement. There is no car parking anywhere for the houses, yet since mid 1990s most people need a vehicle of some sort to get to work (way outside town, not on bus routes etc).
Legislation needs to be adaptive, in that example, then one side of the road should be prevented from parking on, allowing pavement access, and the other side should be marked out in bays.
Then the parking can be managed, rather than free for all.
