Welcome to Space to Park

What is Space to Park?

Space To Park is a user-generated resource of best practice for those seeking parking solutions in new build residential development. This website showcases a series of developments and sets up a constructive discussion about what works and where, from the point of view of users, designers and other experts.

A detailed research report - available above - looks closely at a rich representative data set and demonstrates that car parking is the biggest single problem in recent residential developments, even when the number of spaces provided exceeds car ownership among residents. Against this backdrop, this website facilitates a discussion about the solutions possible through considered urban design.
