Parking Analysis and Regulatory Support

Car and bicycle parking facilities represent key transport assets for a development or an urban area and are an important transport demand management tool. From a developer’s perspective, national and local authority car and bicycle parking standards, and/or site-specific constraints can impose restrictions on capacity, necessitating innovative approach to managing utilisation. While car parking represents an important potential revenue source, it also needs to support the commercial needs of a business or urban area. In addition to supporting asset managers and developers in ascertaining the appropriate quantity and specification of car and bicycle parking facilities, and advising on options to manage their utilisation on an ongoing basis, we provide technical compliance support to the national regulatory body in relation to regulation of the clamping industry.

Key components of this service include, as necessary:

  • Survey specification and supervision
  • Occupancy, turnover and duration of stay analysis
  • Forecasting future parking accumulation profiles and parking impacts
  • Modelling of parking arrival and choice behaviours
  • Identification and assessment of parking management options
  • Car parking pricing definition
  • Car and bicycle parking layout and specification
  • Park and Ride planning and analysis
  • Technical compliance evaluation with applicable national regulations
