Off Street Parking Reviews

The majority of parking revenue is generated from off street car parks. Therefore it is imperative that the car parks can be utilised to the maximum at all times. 2020 Consultancy provide off street parking reviews that outline the existing usage of car parks and more importantly where improvements such as capacity, access and visibility can be made.

We can provide detailed car park design for improvements and where necessary "As Built" drawings highlighting existing infrastructure. With the emergence of private retail parks, town and city centre car parks need to be as effective as possible to ensure town and city centres do not see an economic downturn.

Our design service includes innovative sustainable measures where ever possible whilst maximising space. We ensure that traffic flow through the car park is straight forward and obvious to avoid unnecessary congestion and delays. We also provide safe pedestrian access areas for all our designs.

Resident Parking

Commuter parking has increased significantly in recent years. As a result, residential areas in close proximity of town and city centres are subject to vehicles parked all working day.

2020 Consultancy have designed a number of resident parking schemes, which have proven to be successful in alleviating the parking provision in residential areas. We can include residents parking within on street parking reviews or treat it as an individual scheme. Not all roads are suitable for such schemes and our parking services team will carry out detailed investigations to ensure the appropriate roads are progressed.

Our parking services team can also carry out investigations into existing resident parking schemes to evaluate how they work and whether any improvements can be made.

Contact us today to find out more about our resident parking schemes or to request a quotation.

Traffic Regulation Orders

Traffic Regulation OrdersPenalty Charge Notice appeals for waiting restrictions is increasing year on year. If the relevant Traffic Regulation Order isn't correct the appeals will be successful. It is therefore crucial to ensure the Traffic Regulation Order is correct and it matches what is on site.

2020 Consultancy can implement Traffic Regulation Orders that are accurate, which will result in significantly less successful appeals against Penalty Charge Notices.

2020 Consultancy will be considerably quicker than in house legal teams due to the various bureaucratic procedures in-house local authority teams have to go through along with the other legal work they produce on a daily basis. Our service is cost effective due to the accuracy involved in the order and our experience in the team.

We maintain contact with our clients throughout the process and we are happy to attend committee meetings to act as subject experts. We adjust our service to suit the requirements needed.
