Hello

Has anyone used Accession to help with setting/reviewing parking standards? Are there any examples anywhere of how accession has been applied to this? If you have any suggestions on how Accession can be used I would be grateful for any advice!

Thanks,

Sarah

Hi Sarah,
I co-wrote a reseach paper a number of years ago for a PTRC conference. Section 5.2 discusses parking standards.

I can't promise that it is an exciting read, but if you would like any further information let me know.

Hi,
Thank you for your response, is this research paper accessible on line anywhere or are you able to send me an electronic/hard copy?

Thanks

Sarah

Hi,

We have been using a map produced using Accession to help secure reductions from maximum parking standards for non-residential developments. The methodology is described in section 8.6 of our Development Guidelines Supplementary Planning Document (see following link):
http://www.plymouth.gov.uk/homepage/environmentandplanning/planning/planningpolicy/ldf/spds/ldfdevelopmentguidelines.htm

The map we use provides a percentage score for the proportion of people within 30 mins PT/walking for every area of the city. It was created by using a clipped grid of destinations 400m apart and then doing a very large calculation of travel times from every postcode origin to every theoretical destination. A threshold report was then created to give a proportion within 30 minutes for every destination point and the results were then mapped in our GIS.

Regards,

Robin Bevan

Hi Sarah,

The file upload feature doen't seem to be working. I can send you a copy by email. Also if you google the title of the research paper "Advances in public transport accessibility assessments" you will find a number of additional papers that have been written since ours was published.

Hi Chris,

We have limited the size of upload, how big is the file? I can look into upping the limit.

Regards,

Dan

I've done some work using Accession to develop settlement hierarchies based on access to all facilities using public transport, walking and cycling. The methodology I followed was largely based on that used by Halcrow Consultants for a study carried out for South Buckinghamshire District Council for their LDF work in 2005. I also obtained a copy of a report from Hampshire County Council of a study carried out by Colin Buchanan Consultants in 2004 using accessibility measures to derive a settlement hierarchy for the Greater Hampshire urban area - this was in the pre-Accession days. I would have thought the methodology could be applied to assess residential car parking standards. The Nottinghamshire work for which I undertook the modelling work can be found at : http://www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/home/environment/planningmatters/subregionalandcountyplanning.htm

look for 'Greater Nottingham Accessible Settlements Study 2010.
