The changing face of parking (LIVE)
Dr Theo Thuis Craig Taylor Dominic Millen Dr Giuliano Mingardo Spencer Palmer (CHAIR)

The panel in this session will discuss the significance of parking management in the wider transport and mobility sphere and consider why it often struggles to get the recognition it deserves.

Whilst the agendas around mobility, technology and environment continue to take centre stage as they develop at pace, attitudes towards parking management can often appear stuck in a rut. Parking is frequently considered as a stand alone, disparate issue, when it really needs to be recognised as a key linchpin in strategies for integrated transport, environmental improvements, active travel and mobility. Conversely parking policy is often viewed as a disruptor rather than an enabler. So what needs to happen to cement the parking sector’s place in these wider issues? The panel will consider internal and external factors which are creating the need to change how the world thinks about parking management and its role in towns, cities & communities in the future.

The panel will also debate how the parking sector can change its outward looking ‘face’ in order to sway public perception of its place and purpose in society. At present parking in the UK is not recognised as a valued service so much as a utility which many continue to believe should be provided and freely available to all at no or very little cost. In order for other wider mobility, environmental and transport objectives to succeed, this perception needs to change. How do we do that?
