Your feedback on the priorities for the allocation of street space to parking types/uses for the central city told us:

  • 58 percent of respondents felt bike parking should be a high priority
  • 54 percent of respondents felt mobility parking should be a high priority
  • 51 percent felt urban amenity features (such as street trees, plantings, seats, public art) should be a high priority
  • 52 percent also supported commuter parking not being a priority for street space allocation at all
  • 25 percent of respondents ranked commuter parking as a low priority.


We talked about a number of solutions for when parking demand exceeds supply in the central city:

  • 30 percent of respondents included making it easier to get to the central city in other ways (walking, cycling, public transport) as one of their preferred options

  • The second highest option selected was to increase parking charges (16 percent of respondents).
