Parking Strategy

Parking management to support sustainable cities


Parking strategy has a key role to play in efforts to reduce car dominance in cities and improve urban quality and efficiency.

An often-overlooked component of sustainable transport, parking takes up a huge amount of space in cities and needs to be treated as resource. An integrated, coordinated approach to managing parking accounts for parking’s effects on other transport modes and the quality of the urban environment.

MRCagney has been at the forefront of parking reform in New Zealand over the last two decades. We have worked with most major councils in New Zealand to help develop parking strategies, policy approaches and parking management plans. We were a key player in the ground-breaking move to remove minimum parking requirements in New Zealand.

Our parking expertise draws on our skills in walking and cycling, urban strategy, and data and GIS to provide advice that ranges from long-term strategy to detailed parking analysis.
