Transport and traffic management has always been a challenge in historic towns, and parking is a key element in strategic planning. Not only have revenue / resource strategies changed in recent years, but so have the technologies which are now widely available. The 2008 'Developing a Sustainable Transport Strategy' (DaSTS) offers local authorities a six point implementation plan. The implications of this for historic towns need to be addressed.
Research being carried out by RPS to review Park & Ride, including its sustainability in historic towns, together with other aspects of parking as a part of integrated transport strategies was explored at the conference held in Winchester on 13-14 May. View conference report and presentations
