WDC STRATEGIC CAR PARK REVIEW Key Review Findings Car Park Service Provision has not Kept Pace with Economic, Technical, Social, Demographic & Legislative Changes – Major Changes Required! o Reduced Demand for Off-Street Parking Increase in Legal On-Street Parking Increase in Incorrect (previously illegal) On-Street Parking Lack of Resources for On-Street Enforcement Changes in Shopping/Tourist Habits o 88% of Car Park Income Generated by 15 Car Parks! o Changes in Retail Attraction have left Waveney with Significant Over Provision of Car Parking Spaces o Structural Repairs Required at Battery Green MSCP o Loss of Revenue from 1 Hour Free Parking Trials in Bungay and Halesworth £12k & £42k p.a. o Advances in Automated Enforcement Methods
WDC STRATEGIC CAR PARK REVIEW Generic Review Conclusions Frequent and Ongoing Future Reviews Required Preferred Common Strategy and Policy Enhanced Responsibility for Car Park Management Delegated to Partnerships Permit and Season Ticket Management Methods of Enforcement Security and Maintenance Explore Opportunities for Civil Parking Enforcement (On-Street) to be undertaken by WDC Evidence Required into Benefits of Concessionary Car Parking Schemes
