Car Parking Management Strategy
Parking Management Strategy
Market Town Council was formally requested to prepare a long term Car Parking
Management Strategy because of increasing concerns that shops were closing, a
perceived lack of parking and the poor turnover of parking spaces which, due to
the town’s expansion, is feared only to worsen. After going through the
appropriate tender process Alpha Parking Ltd were engaged to conduct the study
and produce a report together with recommendations.
objective of the study was to identify a solution that would maximise free space
and be accountable in terms of revenue, comparable to other car parks in the
area, increases usage and turnover that meets current and future projections for
growth. An additional requirement was to have an ease of operation without using
existing Town Council resources.
formally adopted the report, this permits the Town Council to bring the document
into the public domain. It does not mean that any recommendations are intended
for implementation as no decisions have been taken whatsoever, in reality we are
now at the start of an informed process following receipt of an independent
report, but it does allow the Town Council to begin public dialogue.
