Enforcement Summit 2014
The Enforcement Summit draws together policy-makers, practitioners, campaigners and technologists. Speakers and panellists confirmed so far for the 2014 event are:

9am: Reception in exhibition area

9.50am
Session One: Enforcement in the spotlight
The first session will look at how parking and traffic enforcement, always controversial, have come under intense political and media scrutiny over the year.
Chair: Viv Nicholas, executive director, European Secure Vehicle Alliance (ESVA)

What next? The DfT parking enforcement consultation
Local authority parking enforcement has been the subject of a Transport Select Committee report, critical comments by local government secretary Eric Pickles and, most recently, a Department for Transport consultation which suggests curbing the use of CCTV for parking enforcement and giving drivers a formal grace period. The British Parking Association will provide an update on the progress of the DfT consultation and its potential outcomes.
  • Patrick Troy, chief executive, British Parking Association
Making the case for effective enforcement
The Local Government Technical Advisers' Group (TAG) sets out a strong argument for consistent and effective enforcement of parking and moving traffic regulations in its response to the DfT consultation. In this paper TAG also explains why it feels the current focus on the operation of enforcement misses the bigger picture about managing access to urban centres.
  • John Elliott, Vice Chair, National Transport Committee, Local Government Technical Advisers' Group (TAG)
'Loading is not parking'
How can town centre kerbside be better managed to ensure the High Street remains accessible to shoppers, public transport users as well as commercial vehicles delivering and collecting goods?
  • Natalie Chapman, head of policy for London, Freight Transport Association (FTA)
Q&A

11am
Coffee in exhibition


11.30am
Session Two: Safer streets for all
The second session discusses issues relating to the management of the kerbside in urban areas, with a focus on ensuring accessibility and improving safety for pedestrians.
Chair: Ade Ford, sales & marketing director, Zenco Systems

Dangerous parking around schools
A short film which shows the way in which careless parking outside schools exposes children to danger. The video footage was taken outside schools in the London Borough of Bromley.
  • Ben Stephens, head of parking services, London Borough of Bromley
Safer streets: Protecting pedestrians
National policy on parking on pavements is confused. In London it is banned unless allowed. Outside London it is allowed unless banned. Pavement parking is not only a nuisance for pedestrians, but can be dangerous for school children, the elderly, disabled and partially sighted people.
  • Rachel Lee, policy & research coordinator, Living Streets
Protecting front line staff
Parking enforcement is often a contentious issue, which means civil enforcement officers (CEOs) often face verbal and physical abuse. APCOA Parking (UK) has been addressing this through a range of initiatives, including partnering with the police, seeking prosecutions against abusive motorists and the use of DNA swab kits
  • Jade Glover, hate crime ambassador, APCOA Parking (UK), Neil Hunwicks, contract manager, Southend-on-Sea, APCOA Parking (UK) and Jurgen Reid, hate crime officer, Essex Police

Q&A


12.30

Lunch in exhibition & Networking


2pm
Session Three: The view from the street
The third session looks at the world of parking, traffic and street-scene enforcement through those on the front line and then from a panel of experts drawn from a variety of backgrounds.
Chair: John McArdle, parking consultant

The word from the street
Drivers, politicians, the media: everyone has an opinion about parking enforcement, but what do civil enforcement officers really feel about their job? The answers they provide when asked may help our streets run more efficiently.
  • Dr Belinda Webb, head of communications, NSL
2.20pm
What appeals are telling us
The most difficult to resolve cases end up with the independent parking adjudication services. This presentation outlines: current trends in cases being heard and offers observations on drivers' understanding of parking and traffic law.
  • Caroline Sheppard, chief adjudicator, Traffic Penalty Tribunal

2.45pm
The Enforcement Debate
The event will conclude with a 'Question Time' session in which a range of experts will discuss topical and perennial issues relating to parking and traffic management policy and practice. Delegates will be encouraged to submit questions and topics before event as well as engage in the discussion from the floor. The panel will include parking managers, contractors, consultants, technologists and drivers' representatives.
Debate chair: John McArdle, parking consultant

Panellists include
  • Ade Ford, sales & marketing director, Zenco Systems
  • John Elliott, Vice Chair, National Transport Committee, Local Government Technical Advisers' Group (TAG)
  • Jade Glover, hate crime ambassador, APCOA Parking (UK)
  • Neil Herron, director, Activ8
  • Rachel Lee, policy & research coordinator, Living Streets
  • Mike Macey, principal, MFM Associates
  • Patrick Troy, chief executive, BPA
  • Caroline Sheppard, chief adjudicator, Traffic Penalty Tribunal
  • Dr Belinda Webb, head of communications, NSL
Potential discussion points include:
  • The government's proposed ban on CCTV parking enforcement
  • Where, and by whom, should 'discretion' be exercised during the enforcement process - by CEOs on-street, processing staff in the back office, local authority officers or contractors?
  • Do financial penalties really alter driver behaviour?
  • Could changes in parking payment and in-car technology make the very concept of 'enforcement' outmoded?
All timings approximate.
