Opening Plenary

The road ahead: Parking 2020, Parking 2040

Over the next 20 years cars will evolve into connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) which can booked via shared Mobility as a Service (MaaS) platforms. Parking bays will become re-charging stations for electric vehicles, while drivers will become passengers and towns and cities will be cleaner, safer and less congested places. That's one vision of the future, but is it the one for which parking and traffic managers should be planning?

This keynote session will look at themes including:

  • Ensuring road traffic regulations and Traffic Orders keep pace with changes in driving technology

  • The need to devise new driving and parking rules for CAVs and their users

  • Creating accurate, real-time smart city maps and managing the exchange of data that CAVs will require  

  • Using digital platforms to deliver the public with parking services, travel information and access to appeals

  • Anticipating the impact of shared mobility platforms and automated vehicles on public transport, traffic congestion, deliveries and wider urban infrastructure

  • Working out where electric vehicles (EVs) will be charged - at home, on-street, at work, in car parks?

  • Developing a better understanding of driver behaviour

Managing the street: Tackling congestion, ensuring accessibility and improving air quality

The efficient management of the kerbside and roadspace is essential to the health, wealth and vitality of urban centres. This session will provide insights into current trends and emerging areas of interest, including:

  • Parking's role in improving urban air quality (Clean Air Zones, Local Emission Neighbourhoods, anti-idling campaigns, etc.)

  • Encouraging and facilitating the uptake of electric vehicles (EVs)

  • Encouraging smarter travel (Car-share, car clubs, cycle parking, etc.)

  • Digitising local authority parking services (Permits, appeals, etc.)

  • Ensuring access (loading and unloading, Blue Badge bays, pavement parking controls, etc.)

  • Keeping traffic moving (Bus lanes, moving traffic regulations, etc.)

Engaging with the public: Parking appeals and annual reports

Drivers have the right to contest penalties issued for breaching parking and moving traffic rules. Appeals services in both the public and private sectors are exploring ways of making the process of challenging PCNs both more open and transparent. This discussion will be led by Iain Worrall, Stakeholder Manager at the Traffic Penalty Tribunal, and include contributions from local authorities that participated in the PATROL PARC (Parking Annual Reports by Councils) Awards.

The session will address topics such as:

  • Using digital technologies to deliver transparent appeals processes

  • Developing responsive approaches to challenges and representations

  • Helping motorists better understand with the appeals process and parking rules

  • Using annual parking reports, social media and publicity to engage with the public, media and other stakeholders

  • How examining appeals trends can help parking and traffic managers improve their services


How to make parking services more accessible and transparent

- Iain Worrall, Stakeholder Manager, Traffic Penalty Tribunal

Engaging with residents, businesses and stakeholders

The presentations will be followed by a discussion featuring contributions from: 

  • PARC Award winning councils

  • The PARC Awards jury

  • Motoring and logistics companies

  • Parking and traffic adjudicators


Digital parking: Data and diligence

Driving and parking are increasingly digital experiences. Sat-navs depend on live traffic information. Parking apps need to link to car park and traffic order databases. Parking terminals, apps, virtual permits and booking systems require real-time access control and enforcement systems to function. All these interactions and transactions mean data is the fuel that powers parking. But as cars become increasingly automated, and parking services increasingly digitised, data and information needs to be collected, stored, shared and used securely and in accordance with legislation such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

This session, which will be chaired by Mark Moran, editor of Parking Review, will look issues such as:

  • Digitising local authority parking services (Permits, appeals, etc.)

  • The use of Big Data and Open Data in parking and traffic management

  • The rules for collecting, using and sharing data in a traffic and parking context

  • Preparing for the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) 

  • Who has the right to access and use vehicle keeper and driver data?

  • Creating secure financial data systems for parking and road use payment

Closing Plenary

A driver of change: The future economics of parking

Parking is widely regarded as being a 'cash cow' used to generate revenue for local authorities and parking companies. However, the real economics of parking are more complicated on account of it being variously (and sometimes simultaneously) a public service, a traffic demand tool and a commercial commodity. This final session will explore themes such as:

  • The case for and against offering 'free' parking

  • Can parking fees and road user charges really reduce traffic congestion and use of polluting vehicles?

  • How parking and road user charges directly subsidise public transport (the Freedom Pass and Workplace Parking Levy)

  • Should car clubs and electric vehicles be subsidised?

  • Could road user charges replace vehicle excise and fuel duties?


Introduction: Why do we pay for parking? 

- Chair: Nick Lester-Davis, Director, Nick Lester-Davis Consulting

How the motoring and parking economy could change as the car evolves

- John Siraut, Director and Head of Discipline, Economics, Jacobs 

New economic models for charging for parking
