The Intelligent Parking Award recognises smarter approaches to the planning and management of parking. The jury is looking for examples of 'joined-up' or lateral thinking that deliver solutions to on-street and off-street problems or needs. The new approaches could be parking policies or operational projects.
The solutions and policies may address issues such as:
Catering for excessive demand for parking at a specific location or type of destination
Effectively managing the occupancy of car parks
Balancing the parking needs of different user groups
Encouraging the use of car-sharing, cycling and other travel modes
Assisting the adoption of electric, connected and autonomous vehicle technologies
Defeating criminal acts, vandalism, parking fraud, etc.
Improving road safety
Reducing traffic congestion and improving air quality.
The entry should cover:
Description of the parking problem or need that the solution or policy addresses
The extent to which these objectives have been resolved
Deliverability of the solution or policy (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 been/can be applied in the wider parking sector.
