Parking Development Strategy

Potential for Private Sector Involvement

Planners must understand that parking developments lie in the gray zone between the public sector (road development and on-street parking development) and the private sector (off-street parking development). Further, the feasibility of off-street parking operations undertaken by the private sector may be influenced by the enforcement activities of the public sector (Traffic Police). The potential for Public and Private Partnership (PPP) schemes may be fully exploited for this purpose.

Planners should be aware that the potential role of the private sector is expanding. The private sector can share not only financing and operation of off-street parking developments, but also ITS application developments for parking information provision, human resource provision for inspectors etc. Case studies are introduced in Section III “Stages in Designing Parking Schemes” and in Annex 6.
