Welcome to Parking & Property 2019


Building the parking business model of the future

Parking & Property is the leading event for organisations managing, developing, building and fitting out car parks. The day features presentations by leading UK and international thinkers from the parking, property retail, transport, placemaking and automotive sectors.

Parking & Property looks at how property developers and parking operators are developing new business models that are building the value of parking assets. 

The event is programmed by Mark Moran, Editor of Parking Review magazine, in partnership with Nigel Williams, Managing Director of Parking Matters, a leading parking consultancy. 

Parking & Property 2019 will look at the potential impact of a series of social, economic and technological trends on parking in city centres. 

When developing their business plans, car park owners and operators now need to take account of changes in driver and customer behaviour, emerging vehicle technologies, changes in urban planning policies and developments in the wider economy. 

The day will see expert presentations by property developers, estate managers, parking operators, designers, architects, consultants and technologists.

Parking & Property will also provide ample opportunities for delegates and speakers to check out innovative systems and services during refreshment breaks in the exhibition. The day ends with the Parking & Property Social, an informal networking reception.

Welcome: Parking & Property

An introduction to the day’s key themes by Nigel Williams, managing director of Parking Matters


Session 1: Parking trends

Presentations on trends shaping the development of the off-street parking business. Themes that will be discussed include:

The role of retail parking

The health of the high street and shopping centres is in the spotlight. A week seldom passes without headlines about store closures, falling consumer spend in bricks & mortar stores and initiatives designed to save high streets and town centres. Is the provision and pricing of parking part of the problem facing retailers, or maybe a solution?

Housing the self-parking car

A discussion about how car parks can be built to re-designed to accommodate changes in the use and design of cars, which will be connected, autonomous, shared and electric (CASE). The first places where cars will behave in a truly autonomous manner are going to be car parks. We have already arrived at the point where cars can be left to enter a car park and find a bay all by themselves. How do such systems work and what are the implications for car park operators?

Regulating parking on private land

The Parking (Code of Practice) Act 2019 will see significant changes to the way in which parking on private land is managed. Operators will have to abide by a single Code of Practice and drivers’ appeals against parking charge notices issued on private land will be able to appeal to a single adjudication service. When and how will these changes be introduced?

Panel discussion

Session 2: Car parks as gateways to development

Presentations on the central role of car parks in the property development process. Themes that will be discussed include:

Unlocking land value

A look at how to identify existing car parks that can be redeveloped in a way that enables the development of more economically and socially beneficial uses.

Reimagining car parks

Multi-storey car parks do not just have to be used to park cars. They can accommodate as events, markets and other activities while remaining operational car parks. And when they are no longer needed as car parks, they can be reused in a number of interesting ways.

Designing car parks that can evolve

Car parks of the future will need to be flexible structures that can accommodate the growth of connected, autonomous, shared and electric (CASE) vehicles. They will also need to offer owners the ability to adapt them for other uses.

Panel discussion



Session 3: Fire in car parks

Fires in car parks are usually contained incidents that do not pose a danger to life or the structural integrity of a building. Then, on New Year’s Eve 2018, a modern multi-storey car park and over 1,000 vehicles were destroyed by an intense fire. The blaze spread in a manner that was without precedent, prompting much concern and discussion in the parking, fire prevention and building design sectors.

This session will examine lessons from the Liverpool fire, look at the regulatory framework and hear expert opinion from both UK and overseas.
