Welcome to Parking & Property 2018


Building the parking business model of the future

The annual Parking & Property event is the one day in the year when property and retail professionals, local authorities and design and construction experts get together with the parking industry to explore the interaction between cars, people and places.

The day’s content has been programmed by Mark Moran, Editor of Parking Review in partnership with Nigel Williams, Managing Director of Parking Matters. 

This year we are pleased to present leading UK and international thinkers from the retail, transport, placemaking and connected car arenas, as well as key developers, parking operators, architects and technologists.

Parking & Property 2018 will focus on how property developers and parking operators are developing new business models that take account of changes in driver and customer behaviour, vehicle technologies, urban planning policies and the wider economy.


Parking & Property 2018 will look at the potential impact of a series of social, economic and technological trends on parking in city centres.

The way in which cars are powered and used will also change the way car parks a designed, used and managed. As shared, electric and autonomous vehicles become the norm, the form and  function of remaining parking facilities in town and city centres will need to evolve. 

Drivers of change will be the combination of changes in land values, an increase in urban density and the coming impact of long-term transport strategies being proposed by Combined Authorities and what London calls the ‘Healthy Streets’ agenda (Clean Air Zones, low emissions public transport, the encouragement of walking/cycling, etc.).

In parallel the city centre ‘consumer offer’ is moving from retail to experience (eating, drinking, tourism, chilling etc.). This will see changes in use of urban space from parking to retail, reducing urban parking stock.

The day will feature a special session on car park safety, paying particular attention to the issues of fire safety in multi-storeys and ensuring ageing car parks are structurally sound.
