Your feedback on the priorities for the allocation of street space to parking types/uses for residential areas told us:
  • 74 percent thought residents parking should be a high or medium priority

  • 70 percent of respondents felt mobility parking should be a high or medium priority

  • 86 percent of respondents felt that commuter parking should be a low priority or not a priority at all

  • For other types, responses were spread across different priorities (high, medium, low, not a priority) and showed no consensus view.

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

  • 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).
