The Brent Council Planning Service (London) sponsored this project to gain empirical evidence in support of an evaluation of the Borough's residential parking policies. The scheme presently in use allocates parking spaces based on the type of housing and number of bedrooms per dwelling. We researched parking, performed field studies, surveyed residents, analyzed the data we collected, and presented recommendations for the Council. All evidence suggests that the Council's residential parking policies are adequate. The completed project includes: a spreadsheet containing housing specifics, field study data, survey results, GIS analysis, and proposed recommendations for future parking allocation cases.
