Project Centre has a wealth of knowledge and experience across all aspects of the parking industry. We provide a comprehensive range of on-street and off-street parking consultancy services for private and public sector clients. Our services include the provision of support and advice on the development of parking policies or strategies. We also undertake preliminary designs, stakeholder consultations and the assessment of commercial viability through to making traffic orders and overseeing project management of the construction and delivery processes.
Parking beat surveys
These surveys can record the occupancy of spaces in on-street and off-street parking at regular intervals to profile usage and determine peak periods. Parking beat surveys can be tailored to meet individual client requirements.
Controlled parking zone design
Controlled Parking Zones are designed to improve local parking. They restrict the ability of people from other areas to park in these roads, reducing both traffic congestion and air pollution.
Project Centre has considerable expertise in some of the most complex areas of on-street parking management such as event day parking schemes, managing parking pressure near hospitals, major transport interchanges and on private estates. We produce fit for purpose scheme designs to meet the needs of communities.
We conduct parking consultations to understand issues experienced in local areas by all those that live and work there. A complete solution is provided from consultation, material design, and dedicated consultation website to reporting the outcomes of the consultation process.
Permit and pricing reviews
Comprehensive charging reviews are conducted to ensure that local authorities are best placed to offer incentives to less polluting vehicles without experiencing a reduction in parking revenues.
We provide project management for all aspects of schemes including the supervision and co-ordination of implementations and contractor liaison on behalf of clients.
Housing estate parking
Project Centre provides a comprehensive range of services including the review of parking provision and demand on housing estates, including consultation and design. This helps local authorities to better manage resident parking on their housing estates.
