Parking schemes and management

The issue   

Unmanaged on-street parking can cause congestion and block pedestrians, cyclists and buses. It can also lead to vehicles circling streets looking for a parking place. 

The scheme   

Ways this scheme will affect car drivers include using technology to:  

  • Manage parking dynamically 
  • Allow for booking parking spaces 
  • Charge different amounts for different road users and at different times 
  • Discourage parking during peak times 

The outcome   

  • Reduced obstruction of traffic 
  • Improved access to local facilities 
  • Improved air quality  
  • Improved emergency service response times 
  • Improved data to inform future transport schemes and policies
