Park Active Operational Guidance

This guide is designed to be a practical tool for local councils and commercial parking operators, to use suitable car park locations to enable active travel choices.

Park Active provides a practical framework and brand for local authorities and the private sector to develop their own Park Active sites as nationally recognised and respected active travel solutions.

This guidance is based on the experiences and the lessons learnt from a range of local authority pilots. Effective parking management is acknowledged as a core enabler for the evolving mobility revolution.

The British Parking Association has continued to collaborate with Government and key stakeholders to develop and lead on Park Active. Park Active is not intended as a quick fix, but rather more as a long-term, sustainable strategy to meet local needs.

Whilst the Park Active Pilots are all in England, the devolved national Government for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland each has their own active travel Strategies: Park Active and its principles are equally valid and applicable across the UK.

We hope you find this Guide useful and please contact us if you have any feedback or questions.
