The Intelligent Parking Award recognises smarter approaches to the planning and management of parking. The jury are looking for examples of 'joined-up' or lateral thinking which delivers solutions to parking needs or problems. The solutions may be ones applied to either on-street or off-street parking. They may address issues such as: catering for excessive demand for parking at a site or destination; balancing the parking needs of different user groups; overcoming parking fraud; improving road safety; making a site or service more environmentally-friendly, etc.
The entry should cover:
Description of the parking problem or need that the innovation addresses
The extent to which these objectives have been resolved
Deliverability of the solution (including the practicalities and affordability of the concept, system or service)
The individual or team responsible for delivering the solution
The development and implementation process
The degree of partnership with other interested bodies (clients, government, industry, public bodies, peers within parking, etc)
Evidence of successful implementation and customer/client feedback (case studies)
Ways in which the solution has/can applied in the wider parking sector.
Created and presented by Parking Review magazine, the British Parking Awards are an independent competition. In their 17th year, the awards recognised the leading examples of car park management, enforcement, design and team work.
