New speakers confirmed - Polis-EPA parking working group meeting 27 April - registrations open

On the 27th of April, Polis and EPA will have the second joint working group meeting in Brussels. The working group will be chaired by Olivier Asselin of Lille Métropole.

The topics that will be discussed in the working group are:

- The relation between parking and urban planning: cities change when parking policies are adapted. An important measure in this regard are standards for parking related to building permits. Cities experiment with car free housing, install gradients in parking standards depending on access to public transport, ... How can we make sure we 'build to last', event in a context of changing car technologies and new mobility services?

- Enforcement: Automatic License Plate Recognition seems to take over Europe when it comes to parking enforcement technologies. Are there disadvantages? What are legal barriers? Can small towns deploy the technology as well?

- Parking apps: how do cities work with and respond to parking apps that unlock existing private parking offer to the market?
