Traffic + Parking: Now and tomorrow

This session will look at the wide range of ways in which local authorities manage streets, the kerbside and the street-scene. Councils manage parking, bus lanes, road user charging schemes and, in London and Wales, moving traffic enforcement. They also taking responsibility for delivering a range of clean air, cycling and walking, road safety and kerbside allocation schemes that involve managing, mitigating and deterring private car use. 

This session will discuss themes such as:

  • Decriminalised parking enforcement

  • The case for granting local authorities powers to enforce moving traffic regulations and pavement parking across the UK

  • The creation of clean air zones

  • Digitising urban streets and TROs

  • Violence against civil enforcement officers – a national emergency?

  • The Positive Parking Agenda

Safer and healthier streets

Local authorities across the UK are being tasked with making roads safer and improving air quality. They are looking to implement a range of traffic management and enforcement schemes to achieve this. 

This session will discuss themes such as:

  • School streets

  • Clean air zones, low emissions neighbourhoods, anti-idling areas

  • Obstructive pavement parking

  • Loading and unloading

  • Deploying CCTV and mobile enforcement vehicles

Pricing and payment

Setting prices and imposing time limits are long established mechanisms for managing supply and demand of parking. The development of mobile and digital technologies is having a transformative effect on how drivers locate and pay for parking, and the data they generate is having a transformative effect on parking policy and service provision.

This session will discuss themes such as:

  • Setting payment tariffs

  • Digital payment solutions – terminals, apps, online, permits

  • Understanding the customer

  • The collection and use of data

  • Payment for other kerbside usage and vehicle-related services (car clubs, electric vehicles, etc.)


Lunch served in the Pioneer Room

Afternoon sessions


The Blue Badge debate

Blue Badge parking permits let disabled drivers and passengers park nearer to where they’re going. Fraud and misuse of permits are an on-going threat to the scheme’s integrity, while recent reforms that expand eligibility to people with ‘hidden disabilities’ present new opportunities and challenges.

This session will discuss themes such as:

  • Reforming the Blue Badge scheme

  • Issuing Blue Badges

  • Enforcing Blue Badges

  • Dealing with offenders: Education or prosecution?


The Pendulum Suite

The dynamic kerbside

The kerbside is a place where the highway meets the urban realm. It is a transition point that is key to the development and delivery of smarter mobility.

This session will discuss themes such as:

  • TROs and mapping

  • Permit schemes

  • Signs and lines

  • Loading and unloading

  • EV charging

  • Making space for car clubs

  • Parklets

Investment and accountability

Parking is simultaneously a public service, a traffic management tool and a business activity. Balancing these elements is a challenge faced by local authorities, highways agencies and private sector parking providers alike. 

This session will discuss themes such as:

  • Public consultation: Dealing with residents, retailers and other stakeholders

  • Parking reports and public engagement

  • Planning park & ride for the future

  • Workplace parking levies

  • The collection of parking and road traffic debt
