Sara Roberts

Head of Approved Operator Scheme British Parking Association

I joined the parking industry a few years ago now. Initially working for a BPA AOS member as their Client Services Director.

I joined the BPA just under 2 years ago to support Steve Clark with the management of the Approved Operator scheme whilst he concentrated on the Private Parking Act 2019 and all of its implications for the industry.

I am now, alongside Steve, for a few more weeks at least, leading on the management and transition of operations of the BPA’s Approved Operator Scheme to meet legislative requirements including the establishment of a Conformity Assessment Body and Conformity Assessment Scheme.

I actively participate on the Government Code Implementation Group and liaise with key stakeholders.

I am also responsible for overseeing the provision of guidance and advice to our members and key stakeholders with a focus on the implementation of the Parking (Code of Practice) Act.
